September Club Night!...Candy Treat Bag...

It was club this week!  Yay!  Love my club nights!  A treat we made at club tonight was copied from a project shown at convention this year.  The second that I saw it...I knew I wanted to recreate it.  I changed a few minor things, and here is the treat bag we made...


How did we make this bag, you may be asking?!  Well...these are the Sketched Dots gift bags that are in the Annual Catalog.  SOOOOO cute and fun to use!  We made a little adjustment to the bottom of the bag, that they showed us at Convention.  And we colored them with ink pads to make the candy corn design.  Look at it before the embellishments are added...


Soooooo cute!!!!  You just mask off the portion you don't want colored, pounce an ink pad over it (Crushed Curry here), wipe off any extra ink with a tissue, then make the portion of yellow you want showing, and add the Tangelo Twist.  Easy, peasy!  Of course you could make the whole bag one color or do this in any color combo you need!

Here is a close-up of the embellishments...


Another little note to add (and a tip they shared at convention this year) is that it is SO EASY to change the color of the White Glitter Ribbon that is in the holiday catalog.  (It comes in a Gold & White bundle in the Holiday Catalog.)  Here is a pic of the ribbon, unaltered...

Beautiful and so glimmery as it is.  BUT...lay the white ribbon on your table with the Glitter side DOWN (so you are looking at the back of the ribbon) and use your Stampin' Write marker to color on the back.  It will then turn your ribbon any color you want!  SOOOOOO much fun!  I used Smoky Slate here and it gives it a silver look.  I have big plans to make it lots of other colors.  :-)

Thanks so much for visiting!!  Hope you enjoy!!  Let me know if you have any questions... designwithink@gmail.com.
