Halloween treats and tags w/Unity Stamps & Spellbinders Celebra'tions

Besides crafting, one of my favorite things to do is buy clearanced treat boxes and bags at Target, in particular, at 90% off, haha.  It's usually the seasonal ones that I go for.  I'd rather buy super cheap, pre-made boxes and devote more time to creating treats to go in and outside the box.

So, I snagged a set of these Halloween boxes last year for, oh, 39 cents!  And, this shiny white bag was from a Christmas sale last year.   I picked up several of those as well.  I thought it would be fun to stamp a fun Halloween image on the bag, but, I wasn't sure if ink would adhere to this material, so I decided to heat emboss, being very careful not to overheat and burn this thin material or cause excessive puckering.


I grabbed this cute witches hat from the Unity Stamp Halloween Chatter set and used Versamark clear ink, then sprinkled black embossing powder, tapping the excess through the material onto a scrap piece of blank sticker paper.  After putting the excess powder back in the jar, I put the paper back in the bag to keep the heat away from the other side of the bag.  I then added a thin strip of orange glitter adhesive tape to the hat.

The tags were made with the brand new Spellbinders SWEET TREATS matching stamp and die tag set.  Let me tell you, these stamps and tag dies are HUGE!  Spellbinders was kind enough to send me this set in the mail, after my guest blogger stint at the CHA Paper Arts show in Atlanta last month (thanks, Dave!)  Who can say that they received personal instruction from Richard Garay himself, the designer of this kit?  I can, that's who!  #grin 
I used everything you see below, embellishing with May Arts Ribbon twine and Freckled Fawn neon dots.  Those cute bats were also heat embossed, fussy cut and held in place with Glue Dots.  This stamp set is one of my fave from the Unity Stamp Co, Kooky Spooky and Batty set.  Have I told you how much I love Unity Stamps?  Well I do and if you could see my stash in my craft room, you would know! 
Come and join in!
