We are on day 4 of our blog swap with Xyron. I hope you are enjoying the fabulous projects so far.
Happy Halloween, Roadies! Are you ready for all those trick-or-treaters? Well, if not, I have a sweet project for you to whip up.
Halloween is my favorite time of the year. I am especially excited for trick-or-treating in our new neighborhood and I wanted to surprise my neighbor with a little bag of Halloween treats. So, I grabbed a glassine bag, some patterned paper, a page from my Scroll Edge Chipboard Binder Album, my Danielle Chipboard Alphas, my Autumn Mini Chipboard set, Licorice Black Tulle Pleat Trim, Grass Paper Twine Cording, a Super Mega Bottle Cap, Sunset Burlap Trim, Just My Type Alpha Stamps, and some of my Earl Grey Organza Tea Garden Trim.
I used my Xyron glue stick to adhere the patterned papers to my chipboard pieces and trimmed the excess off with a craft knife.
I layered up my black cat, pumpkin, and my bottle cap and adhered them to the chipboard using the Xyron Double-Sided High Tack Tape. That stuff is strong! And I love the little cutter teeth on the end of the packaging so I don't have to get my scissors all gummed up with adhesive. After I stapled my organza trim, the paper cording, and the burlap trim to the bag, I adhered the finished bag topper and my stamped out sentiment, all with the Double-Sided tape. Lastly, I embossed my "booed" with some lime green embossing powder, then I ran my little letters through the Xyron X Sticker Maker. This thing is PERFECT for covering the backs of my mini alphas with adhesive because you know that can get tricky sometimes.
I don't know how I lived without this thing! Its amazing!
After, I stuffed my bag with treats, I folded it over and used a few Xyron glue dots to keep it closed.
Here are a couple close-ups...
Have a great day!
