Hallowe'en Tags

Quick post for today, but I just had to share! I have my first Crazy 4 Christmas Class today and as a door prize, I wanted to give away something I'm planning on doing for the children in my kids' classes. It uses the new Peekaboo Frames Bigz L die as well as the 1" x 8" Cellophane Bags - both found in the Holiday Mini. I guess it's kind of odd that I'm giving away Hallowe'en treats for a Christmas card class door prize. But then again, it's an unusually warm September day too... definitely not Christmas-y! So why not mix it up?

I can't even begin to tell you how much I love these products! There are so many things you can do with the Peekaboo Frames die - cards, tags, scrapbook peekaboo pictures or journalling - the sky's the limit! The Cellophane Bags are a perfect treat size. They fit gumballs, jellybeans, M&Ms or a pencil :)

Tips & Tricks:
*To adhere the inner card stock to the frame, I ran my 2-way Glue Pen around the outside of the frame and stuck the card stock on. This prevents adhesive from being on the stamped back of the tag.
*The 1" x 8" Cellophane Bag has adhesive at the top (similar to the Translucent Envelopes) so you can easily close in any treat you want to put in it.
*The Peekaboo Frames die makes making fun tags a snap! I made these beauties in less than 5 minutes each :)
*1/8" Taffeta Ribbon is the perfect size for tags. I used my Crop-a-Dile to make a 1/8" hole in the tags.

'Tis all for this Friday. Until next time, keep letting stamps bring out your creativity!
