CTMH August SOTM: What A Hoot Blog Hop

I came across this pin by Sarah Webb, and loved the idea of combining a card and a treat bag! It will be perfect to throw in my son’s lunch box for a Halloween Treat. {Can I insert a little tear at the thought of throwing anything in my son’s lunchbox?!? He will start all day kindergarten in just a couple weeks, and since he’s an only child I’m going to find myself alone on my day off work!!}

CTMH August SOTM: What A Hoot Blog Hop

Starting with a Kraft Cardstock base and added a layer of {NEW} Scaredy Cat Paper Packet B&T Duos™ followed by a {NEW} Designer Creations Slate Paper Bag. I then used August’s SOTM, What A Hoot, owl image, Halloween hat, and sentiment in Archival Exclusive Black Ink™. I colored the stamped image with {NEW} ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Markers. I also added a couple strands of Neutral Metallic Baker’s Twine and adding a few black stars from the {NEW} Scaredy Cat Assortment. I used the {NEW} Mini Stapler to attach the sentiment banner to the card. I wanted to show you how fantastic the {NEW} Designer Creations Paper Bags are for treats, cookies, candies, etc BUT our snack cabinet is bare at the moment!! I will be sure to throw one of my son’s faves inside the paper bag on Halloween!!!


TIPS & TRICKS

#1. Because the Designer Creations Bags are made of paper they are easy to trim to the size you need. The bag I used on this card was initially too long, so I just used my paper trimmer to cut it to the appropriate length & then used a scoreboard  {HINT, HINT CTMH now has a {NEW} Score Board} to make an even score line. I then folded the bag at the scoreline & resealed the base of the bag together with tape runner adhesive.

#2. The awesome doodiliness {is that a word!?!?} of this stamp set makes it perfect to add a little doodling of your own. Around the edge of the orange B&T I used my journaling pen and added a little extra fun!!

#3. Remember there are other ways than adhesive to secure items to your card! I’m in LOVE with the {NEW} Mini Stapler!! It helps add so much character to the card or any papercrafting project!

  1. Such a cute treat card! I’m sure your son will love it! And look at it this way, you can stay busy getting crafty on your day off of work while he is at school, the time will fly by! ;o)

    • Thanks, Pam! I’m sure (sooner than I would ever imagine) that I will enjoy the quiet time that I will have while he is in school. Just have to get used to the quiet first! LOL!! 🙂
