Hello. I saw these adorably decorated crayon boxes over on a My Creative Time designer's (Cathryn) blog http://inthepinkcathryn.blogspot.com/2011/07/my-creative-times-july-stamp-release.html back in July and immediately bought the stamp set with the intentions of doing this (a similar version of it) for my daughter's preschool class. Then a couple of weeks ago I was in Target and saw cute little Halloween notepads in the $1 section (6 in a pack) so I bought those also. I decided this week to put them in with the crayons to make a goodie bags...of course that meant I needed toppers. I also decided to make some goodie bags for her two teachers using an idea I had seen around on Pinterest and other sites.
Here are the bags for the kids: For the crayons I used the My Creative Time all around Halloween set, some plain paper from AC Moore and some patterned paper from K&Co. For the bag toppers I used Art Philosophy to cut the square in 2 sizes, then I scored it in the middle. On the top layer I added stitching via gelly roll pens, either a ghost from Paper Doll Dress-up or a pumpkin from Create a Critter. Of course they needed a cute little Peachy Keen face :) I printed the names all one piece of card stock on the computer then cut out using the center point feature and one of the cute tags on Art Philosphy. I then used the Happy Halloween sentiment from my Pink by Design Guess Who set to add the sentiment. Lastly, I used the bonus stamp that came with Septembers new order stamps from My Creative Time on the back of the bags :)
Here are the bags for the teachers: I used the same process for the bag toppers as above but I printed the sentiment on orange paper first, then cut the square using Art Philosophy. I then cut the ghosts from Paper Doll Dress-up and used some cute Peachy Keen faces on them. I plan to make some of these for my office staff as well this weekend for Monday.
I hope the kids and teachers enjoy their goodie bags! TFL!
