Featured Stamper Rachel Hope and Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential

Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential has a challenge this week for making Treat bags for the Holidays. I discovered this after I started looking in the Resourse area at Splitcoaststampers looking for a 2-4-6-8 bag to CASE Rachel Hope, who is this week's Featured Stamper at Splitcoast . I could not find the exact tutorial I wanted, but came across this cute tutorial for Cammies Triangular Treat Bag.

Apparently, I get easily distracted, because the next thing I know, I was cutting strips of CS and making triangular bottoms to fit them........  I used the Pawsitively Frightening  stamp set by Firecracker Designs by Pamela to dress up the front of these little boxes.  I stamped the images and sentiments with Tuxedo Black memento Ink and colored them with Copic markers.  I stamped the Cat's head and witch hat again, and popped it up on dimensionals- do you like the 'Out of the Box' look with the cat?
For the second box, I stamped the Caldron and topped it with the sentiment.  It is also colored with Copic markers. I took purple and Pumpkin CS and put it through the crimper for the inside of the treat bag. I used a rectangular punch and used $1.00 ribbon from Joann that is double sided orange and black with stitching on the edges.
Thanks for stopping by!
