Halloween Treats

Happy Thursday my friends, with Halloween just a few days away, I've been on a mission to decorate Halloween treat bags for the grandkids using the ever so adorable Tim Holtz/Sizzix Costume Party Colorize Thinlits characters. Halloween isn't such a big thing in the UK but hey, I never need an excuse to share my love of candy and make a dent in my Tim Holtz spooky supplies at the same time.

I began by covering the fronts of kraft gift bags with the cobweb paper from a Tim Holtz/Idea-ology Halloween Paper Pad, an oldie for sure, perhaps 2019.
I fixed Sizzix Adhesive sheet to scraps of Tim Holtz Idea-ology Classic KraftStock and Neutral KraftStock, die-cut using the Costume Party Colorize Thinlits and assembled.

I applied Distress Texture Paste through Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Mini Brickwork and Stone Layering Stencils from Stencil set 28 on to Mixed Media HeavyStock #8 Tags and set aside to dry. I sprayed the tags with Twisted Citron, Crackling Campfire and Villainous Potion Distress Spray Stains and Villainous Potion Distress Oxide Spray, flicked on water and dried. I used a damp kitchen towel to remove some of the colour from the texture paste areas and flicked on Jack O' Lantern, Peppermint Stick and Holly Branch Distress Mica Stains.
I fixed the tags to the gift bags using Distress Collage Medium, added Idea-ology Mummy Cloth and the Costume Party characters popped up on foam adhesive. I sanded the edges of Halloween Quote Chips and stickers from the Curiosities Sticker book and added to the bags.
I sprayed Idea-ology Crinkle Ribbon (sadly now a discontinued item) with Twisted Citron, Villainous Potion and Crackling Campfire Distress Spray Stain, spritzed with water, scrunched up in my hand and dried with a heat tool.
I added the Crinkle Ribbon to the handles of the bags and filled with Halloween treats.

As luck would have it, there were extras left over, lucky me, how did that happen, I wonder.
Happy Crafting and have fun with whatever you are making
