Hi everyone! I made these quick & easy bags last week to give my lovely co-workers a Halloween treat (leaf-etched candle holders with "pumpkin pie" candles). I bought the plain colored bags at Walmart (I believe Hallmark makes them- they were in the gift bag aisle and were only 20 cents a piece!) and randomly stamped them. The orange and purple bags feature stamps from Target's dollar spot, and the stamp on the green bag is by Inkadinkado. This was my first time using Target stamps, and I wasn't sure how that was going to go since they're so cheap- the spider didn't stamp perfectly, but otherwise they were fine. I thought they were going to be worse, to be honest. :) Anyway, I made coordinating tags using watercolor pencils, scraps of ribbon, googlie eyes and "Just for you" metal embellishments by All My Memories. This was a really easy project and sometimes I think the presentation is better than the actual gift! LOL My co-workers really enjoyed their bags and I hope you do, too! :D Thanks for popping by!
