Treat Bags

I joined in with Joana over at The Hybrid Chick for her treat container hybrid challenge.  I decided to use one of Arty Pants Digital Stamps new stamps - Witch Girl.  I have never used a real stamp in my life before, well at least for card making, that is, and I'm not about to go out and buy any now that Arty Pants offers digital stamps!  These are so easy to use - you can either print them off and color them with markers, pencils, etc., or color them digitally on your computer!  I chose the latter.  I used Laura Banasiak's Pumpkin Spice kit and clipped the papers to the different layers of the Witch Girl.  For a great tutorial on how to use the digital stamps, see this post over at The Hybrid Chick by Dalis.  For the finishing touch, I added in a cutesy saying "Hauntingly Sweet" with DJB Woke Up Late font from Darcy Baldwin.

First off, I took some of these paper sacks and used my Big Bite to punch some holes in the top of both the printed off stamp and the sack.  I overlapped the printed image in the back by about 1.5 to 2 inches.

I then added some ribbon and tied it off.

An easy way of making some plain ol' bags cute!  

One more thing - Darcy Baldwin (the resident fontographer) at Sweet Shoppe Designs is having her second ever "So You Think You Can Font?" contest!  

Have you ever wanted to see your handwriting made into a font?  This is your chance!  You never know if she'll pick yours!
