Just a reminder of what the projects were to look like if the directions were followed and the appropriate goodies were used:
I thought it would be easy enough to make this a CHRISTMAS treat bag as opposed to one for Halloween treats, with only a few changes.
Some of the burlap bags were printed in black stripes, while the rest were black polka dots.
This is what I came up with.
Choosing one of the polka dot bags, I used one of the plain tags that came in the kit, along with one of the black striped tags for its mat. Since one of the stamps that came in the kit, "Eat Something Sweet" was nicely appropriate for a Christmas treat, I stamped that on the plain tag in red. To attach it to the bag, instead of using one of the orange or purple clothespins that came with the kit -- which are decidedly HALLOWEEN! -- I dug through the leftover supplies that I had accumulated from past Paper Pumpkin kits, and came upon these darling unfinished clothespins. Perfection!
To turn the black printed polka dots into "mats", I punched out green and red circles with the 1/2" Circle Punch. I then adhered them to the center of each dot with green glue.
Needing a little something more, since I obviously could not use the orange sequins that came with the kit, I took the scraps from punching out the circles, and with the Banner Punch, punched one in each color. Adding them in a jaunty way to the tag was the perfect ending touch!
Now, I'd like for you to put your Paper Seedling planting hat on and come up with another way we could change up the striped bags for some other occasion. What do you think?
P.S. I added this project o' mine to the MPC1014 Sweets & Treats at My Pumpkin Challenge at http://www.mypumpkinchallenge.blogspot.com/. Think about joining their monthly challenges yourself!
