Here’s one last Halloween Project for your party table. Design Team member, Betsy Skagen, has crafted a pumpkin centerpiece out of Horizontal Striped Bitty Bags. Using the same rosette making technique from her 10/9/14 post, she makes alternating layers of orange and black. To see her tutorial visit her blog at Paper Calliope. Happy Halloween to all!

With the holiday right around the corner, we’ve been seeing lots of Halloween projects. Here’s a great idea to keep in mind for after Halloween to use all that leftover candy. Package it and give it to someone who needs a little pick me up! Design Team member Amy Tsuruta created this peek-a-boo treat bag using our very versatile Brown Kraft Bag. She cuts an oval window to reveal the contents and seals it with washi tape and Divine Twine. You could also switch out the stamped sentiment and use it as a thank you gift or as a BOO! Bag for those of you that have kiddos that participate in that Halloween game. Mix it up and have fun!
For detailed steps to make this or your version of this treat bag, please see Amy on her blog at tsurutadesigns.blogspot.com

Here’s a fun new twist on Halloween Treat Bags, by Design Team member, Kerstie Pedersen. She’s sketched this friendly little bat (There’s a free printable available on her blog!) and fashioned wings out of our Middy Bitty Bags. Tucked in on each side is a candy treat. Sweet!
