My Pink Stamper Blog Hop!

Welcome to the October Pinkalicious blog hop for My Pink Stamper! You should've arrived here from Roberta's fantastic blog Tx Scrapper Mom! This month we were to make a treat or goodie bag. I made an easy 'peek-a-boo' pumpkin bag filled with candy corn! I wanted to make something that would be quick and easy to make to give to my co-workers on Halloween (since they keep thinking I should bring them some of my cricut Angry Birds that I made for our work craft fair! See them in the blog post below).

Peek-a-boo Pumpkin Bag

Materials used:

Cricut Cartridges - Tags, Bags, Boxes and More...Smiley Cards...and Gypsy Wanderings
Cardstock - Bazzill (Black , White, Orange, Green, and Brown)
Sentiments Stamp - My Pink Stamper Yummy-licious
Mini Pearls - Martha Stewart
Black Ink
Green Curling Ribbon

Directions - to make the peek-a-boo bag, I used my gypsy and placed the small bag from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More on the mat. Then, using Gypsy Wanderings I placed a circle shape directly on the front panel of the bag (mine's a little off center but it doesn't show when the pumpkin is added). I then cut the bag out, and the cricut cut the circle shape.

I also cut one pumpkin out of black paper and one out of orange. The black pumpkin I positioned over the circle hole and adhered to the bag. And then I was able to use some foam squares to pop up the orange pumpkin to give it a little dimension. The tag is also from Gypsy Wanderings and then stamped with Enjoy from the Yummy-licious stamp set by My Pink Stamper!

Thanks for hopping by! You're next stop is to Tracy's amazing blog, Craft Junkie Too!
