The Holidays are coming! The Holidays are coming!!

You know what that means?  Treats!  And LOTS OF THEM!  Treats and gifts.  My personal goal this month is to make some little treats and gifts for the family, friends, teachers and coworkers.  Getting ahead before December is what the plan is.  Here is a simple idea that you can embellish to give it any style or holiday look you are after.

Brawny RC100 Burgundy is a sturdy cardstock perfect for packaging yet lovely because of its texture.  I started off with a piece of paper that was 4.25 x 11  inches.  Score at   3.75, 4 7/8  , 6 and 9.75 inches.  Fold up into a triangular shaped package.   The bottom has a “W” shape so it can expand with the items you put inside, or fold flat.   Decorate and fill with your favorite Halloween treat!  (I did trim off a little on the flap on my example. Other papers used are Kraft Cardstock and Felt Grandee.)   I stamped the pumpkin image onto Watercolor Paper which has a lovely look when you use reinkers to color it in.  Fill a cello bag with a sweet treat and you can easily produce this giftie for friends, family, teachers or coworkers!
