Start Preparing Treats for The Little Ones
I have a bake sale coming and I am going to try this idea from Natalie...won't you?
A year ago I found this idea on a blog that I have long since forgotten the name of, but I kept the one I made and this year made a new, better example.
I used a bracket cutout from my Cricut Storybook cartridge, ran it through the Cuttlebug and embossed it. You can use any shape or design that you think coordinates. I then chalked the edges with white.
The "Boo" was cut out using a third party program with my Cricut and I chalked the bottom with black and the top with white for shadowing.
I also found a spiderweb file and cut it out. I put black glitter on the front of it and then put an orange glitter on every other leg of the web. I found an orange piece of confetti to put in the middle for more "bling"
I tied coordinating ribbon to a large yellow paper clip, glued the dried spider web to the paper clip using the Scotch quick dry glue.
You then fill a bag with goodies, staple the topper on and attach the paper clip and web to the top of that. You can glue the paper clip down to the topper if you choose to.
