Baker's Dozen October Studio Challenge

 It's time for the Baker's Dozen Studio Challenge. This is a monthly opportunity for us to share what makes our stamping studios hum. Each month we will have a fun, crafty question so we can share our favorites, some tips and tricks, stamping advice and more.

The theme for October is:
Good things come in small packages! The holiday season is upon us and between Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukah, and Christmas there are a ton of opportunities to create and give little treats, gifts, and party favors. Please show us something you'll be giving this year.

I decided to create little classroom treat bags.  Now that three of my kids are in school and each class has at least 16 students, I need treats that are quick and easy to create.  I filled little cello bags with some Halloween treats and made toppers for the bags.  The toppers were created using the Label Stacklets 1 from TE folded in half.  I used the largest stacklet to die cut the orange pieces and the next smallest to cut the patterned pieces for the topper.  The patterned papers are from the Enchanted Collection from Authentique.  I used the Spooky Fence Border Die along with images from the Fangtastic set to create the "spooky" scene on the toppers.  The sentiments were stamped on cardstock die cut by the Fly Your Flag 2 Coordinating Die

This is a great project for the kids to actually help!  While I was creating the toppers, the kids filled the little bags with the treats.  Once all of the toppers are finished, sealing the bags and attaching the toppers goes pretty quickly. . .especially when you have some helping hands.  :) 

Please visit the rest of the Baker's Dozen to see what treats they've created!!
