Halloween Candy Tags, Goodie Bag Tags

As you can tell I LOVE Halloween! It's such a fun holiday to decorate and create. I always try to do something fun for the classroom so I created these personalized tags to make goodie bags with. You can also attach candy directly to the tags and hand them out!

I created the tags using my photoshop software. They are approximately 2.5 x 3.5 inches. I printed at my local print shope, then cut each tag out using my paper trimmer. I bought the mini lunch bags from Michaels and if you use your 50% off coupon, you can get 16 bags for 1.50! I adhered the tags to the bags with a strong scrapbook adhesive. To create the candy holders, I just used my circle punch (square also works) and punched two holes, one on top and one on bottom, and slipped the pixie stick right in! That's it.. I have recently added these items to my store, come by and take a peak! They are pesonalized with your child's name, I have created a boy and a girl set! Enjoy!

Halloween Cone Decoration or Garland

To Create the cones:

1. Adhere two sheets of paper together approx 8 1/2 x 8 and lay in a diamond
2. Roll the paper into a cone and stick together with double-sided tape
3. Cut off the triangle portion at the top of the cone to create a circle
5. For the top, gather tulle and glue to cone (hot glue works best)
6. Adhere ribbon to the center of the tulle and use hot glue to adhere
7. Cut and glue an 8" piece of ribbon to the inside of each cone in order for it to hang
8. Decorate with Glitter Chipboard, buttons, embellishment, lace, or whatever you like!
9. Hang individually, fill with candy or connect cones with ribbon to create a Halloween Garland

Thank you!

Baby Keepsake Jar

It's Craft Tuesday at What's Scrapping and I'd like to share this Baby Keepsake Jar with you. Create this special gift for the mommy to be.

I bought this jar at my local craft store. I created each tag in the computer. I used a dainty, pink damask paper as the background with black and white accents. Scallop tags were cut with a 2" scallop punch and hooked onto a ring. The tags inlcuded titles like: First bath, First smile, First steps, etc. where mommy can write the date on the back of each tag. I also created 12 square memory tags that are pre-printed with the following wording: 1-12 months, weight and length. All mommy needs to do is simply jot down baby's information for that month. I also included a special tin for to save a lock of baby's hair (a small vellum envelope fits perfect inside the tin to seal baby's hair). I created mini tags using a 2"x3" tag punch. They are blank which allows mommy to write down special memories of baby. You can be as creative as you want, even personalize it to baby's theme. Thanks for looking.
