12 Weeks of Halloween 2018 Week 12- Last Minute Idea You Can Make Today!

IMG_0852

Happy Halloween and welcome to our Week 12 (FINAL!) project using Stampin' Up! products! 

I am sharing an idea that is you can make today!  So, dig out those designer papers, a little ribbon, and some stamps to make a tag and you'll be ready to go.

Let's take a look at the video tutorial and you can get to work!

You can also find this video tutorial on YouTube HERE!  Be sure to subscribe and click on the "bell" to receive notice of all my new videos.

Lisa's Inklings: 

  • Measure the width of your box or candy bar.  I cut mine at 6" x 12" to get two pieces from one sheet of paper.
  • Use punches for a stamped image or sentiment.  Stack these up as seen in the video.
  • Ribbon, twine, or cording wrapped around the package makes a nice finishing touch.

By just using stamps, ink, and paper with some punches and a ribbon or twine, you can create a really cute treat wrap that turns a simple box of candy into a really special treat.
