Seasonal Chums and Treat Tubes for a Happy Halloween!

Hello there,
Today is the monthly hop with the Jem's and I'm finally at home at the beginning of the month so I can join in the fun again :-)
The theme for this months hop is Trick or Treat - a personal favourite as I really LOVE Halloween! And so I have a fun project using the super sweet Treat Tubes with Seasonal Chums plus I've used the Labels to Love stamps on the outer gift bag too! Let's start with the bag all finished and ready to gift...
 Inside I have added a Treat Tube filled with millions sweets adding a Seasonal Chums tag with some bakers twine (at the time of writing this post, this twine is still available in the clearance rack for just £2.20 for two rolls! Go, quickly!)
So, I stamped this cute pumpkin image onto pumpkin pie card thinking 'this'll be quick' before realising they looked a bit well, meh! So, I very loosely added a little colour with ink pads and an aqua painter. As I make a lot of halloween gifts to give out (at least 100) it's probably a good thing I've started nice and early!
 OK, so I wanted to add something to the outside of the bag that wouldn't fall off and this is what I came up with...
1) Punch a piece of DSP** using the everyday label punch.
2) Staple the punched paper to the clear cello bag.
3) Stamp the Halloween image from Labels of Love stamps, in black ink and punch, again using the everyday label punch.
4) Add the stamped and punched image to the punched paper layer using strong tape (tear and tape or Fast Fuse*** would work well)
**TIP: This is Halloween Night DSP from last year and in the clearance rack for £4.70 right now or you can use the fresh new Halloween paper Spooky Night. I've added both links at the end of the post ;-)
***Fast fuse is on offer - buy the Fast Fuse get TWO free refills! But only 'till Tuesday 10/10/2017
I've also wrapped a little chocolate bar (Freddo) with more DSP to pop in the bag.
And here is some of the prep I have started for the big day already! But I have to stop and make a card for Zacks birthday which is this week too :-)
Well, I hope you have enjoyed todays makes, I'll be sure to share the whole lot when they're completed, on Instagram so I hope you follow me there?!
