Tricks and Treats

Can you believe that we are already a few days into the month of October?  I'm still trying to wrap my brain around that fact!  It goes without saying though, that this month brings about lots of Halloween hoopla at our house.  As with many of the major holidays, we like to use this time of year as an excuse to whip up some yummy treats and gift them to friends, neighbors, teachers, classmates, etc.  It's a great opportunity to bake up some of our favorite holiday goodies and let those around us feel special with a simple little gift.  (Not too mention the fact that my jeans and scale are thankful that these treats do not sit long at our house!!!).

You can't give away a yummy treat without some cute packaging though, now can you?  I don't think so!  Which is why I broke into some of Pebbles new, adorable Tricks and Treats collection to put together these ghoulishly cute tags!

Supplies used: Tricks and Treats (751337) Tricks and Treats (751329)  Tricks and Treats (751334) Tricks and Treats (751338) American Crafts Coordinating Cardstock - black (71082) Other: Doodlebug Doodletwine (gray),  American Crafts buttons, machine stitching, buttons, tiny attacher.
I dug into the 6x6 paper pad first, as the small scale design of these papers was just perfect for the size of my banner style tags.  I love all of the sentiments on the label-type paper ('gooey globs', 'spookey treats', 'toe of frog') and thought they would be a festive little addition.  I cut them out, stitched up a little topper to adorn them and threaded them on some baker's twine to dangle from each button.  I love the whimsy that they add!

Here's a look at the tags 'in action'.  I've simple stapled them onto small craft bags that I found at my local craft store, and they are ready to give.

Head on over to the Pebbles blog to the 'Whip It Up Wednesday' post featuring my tags and another fun project!

Thanks for stopping by!  I have lots to share in the coming days, so I hope you'll be back to visit soon!
