For Stampin' Up!'s 25th anniversary, they are bringing back some favorite stamps monthly. The Best of Halloween (#134381, set of 5, $14.95) is one of those stamp sets and the one I used to create the tags for my Mini Muslin Bags (#132180, 8 bags, $9.95). The bags are very easy to work with as they are 100% cotton with a well made drawstring to close them with.
I stenciled a different pattern on each of my bags. Remember the SPOOKY BANNER class that I posted about yesterday? I used the same stencil on the banner as I did on the Halloween treat bags. The stencils are included in the Build a Banner Simply Created Kit (#133507, 18 blank banners, jute twine, alphabet and image stencils, $19.95) and can be used over and over.
It is very easy to use the stencils on the bags. To create a nice surface to work on, stick a piece of cardboard inside the bag and use a sponge dauber directly on your stamp pad to add the ink. It goes on very easily and doesn't smear at all. Can't you just see the smile on the face of the person you gift this to ~ I can! Thanks for stopping by and let me know if you need any of the supplies to make some treat bags for your friends and family.
