It's Pumpkin Time -- Fall Party Treat Bag -- Part 1

On Wednesday of this past week, I attended the annual room mom meeting @ school. 
We were reminded that on October 31st we would be having a "FALL treat" and
not a Halloween party.  There are to be no ghosts, witches, etc...
So in keeping with the theme of autumn, leaves & pumpkins, 
here is my "It's Pumpkin Time" treat bag!  :) :) :)

I LOVE the MFT die-namics treat bags and boxes!!
They make little gifts and goodies so simple, quick and easy!!

Here's how I made my treat bag:
1.  I ran the paper bag treat bag die through my Big Shot 2 times with orange fizz card stock.
2.  I used Bo Bunny apple cider DP and ran it through on only the front portion of the die.
3.  I used Scor-tape to attach the 2 halves of the paper bag together and glue runner to add the front DP.
4.  I used the layered treat die to make a cut out w. orange fizz card stock for the tag base
5.  I used sour apple card stock and the circle die from the layered treat die set for the middle layer.
6.  Then I stamped a large pumpkin from the primitive pumpkins set on the sour apple layer w/ orange fizz ink.
7.  I used the last die in the layered treat tag set to cut out the white card stock &
then stamped it with orange fizz ink with the stamp from Trick or Sweet that says, "It's Pumpkin Time"
8.  I popped up all of the layers on dimensional dots and attached it to the front of my treat bag.
9.  I used the mini double dot border die with the sour apple card stock and cut it out 2 times, layered it, and attached it to the bottom for some visual interest.  

**This is Part 1 of my project and I will return with
the matching card and the treat bag filled with goodies on a later date!!**
This was a SUPER quick project because as I mentioned before, this week was a little nutty around my house!!

  12. Oh my goodness! Where can I get this die to make some of these treat boxes? I love this and it's going to be such a big hit! My youngest, Ethan's school also does not want "Halloween" themed anything and they will not even be dressing up for Halloween Day. :( So much for his Mike Wizoski costume we just bought! LOL Oh well, I'm sure there will be plenty of other events to wear it at and that preschool will still be having a lot of fun events! Hope your daughter had a fun party!
