tiny treats team challenge & more with fillable frames #7

Hey everyone! Welcome to day 3 of the Papertrey Ink countdown to the August release. Today, the whole design team is sharing ideas for treat packaging and card making using the new Tiny Treats: Halloween set.

All of the new sets and products that I am using today will be available for sale on August 15th at Papertrey Ink.

It's time once again, while I am in the midst of fall and Halloween project making, to do my Halloween tags for this year. If you have been following my blog, you know this is something I have done for several years for my girls, my nephews, and some family friends. I use the tags on a gift bag of treats for the season and then the tags can be saved for using on a scrapbook page for the year. It's is so much fun to see the tags from year to year...


I used the mat stack 4 die for the tag base and you will notice that so I could use the tag stamp from the Tiny Treats set horizontally, I punched the center circle out of some additional tag images and remounted them onto the tag. The other thing that I added besides the punching and stamping was the scalloped circle that I glittered the edges on for a mat between the image circle and the tag base.


To make the coordinating card, I made an additional tag and then attached it onto the card front along with some True Black & a piece of my new Halloween patterned paper.


Here is a closer look at the tags for this year, and if you are keeping track you are noticing that I have 2 additional tags this year. One is for my new nephew Gunnar and the other is for my best friend Brianna's new baby girl Maren (her tag is attached to the gift bag.) So fun to be able to add on to this project this year!

The trim that I used on the tags and card is one I picked up at the Tinsel Trading Company in NYC that I stopped at on my trip out to the East Coast this past June. What a dream to spend time shopping and browsing in that store! (Thanks Robin!)

I also have another treat packaging project to share that uses the new Fillable Frames #7 set and die...


This project is so quick and easy (beyond the coloring that you can either simplify or even leave out!) I die cut the Fillable Frames #7 die from a white adhesive sheet. I then stamped on the frame, image, sentiment, and even a bit of glitter for a little sparkle.


You can so easily peel off the backing and stick the labels to whatever you would like.


I used some small treat sacks. Just fold over the edge and seal up the bag with the Halloween label - so easy and so cute!

Make sure that you check out Nichole's blog to link to all of the other design team members projects. You will be itching to start your Halloween treat projects once you have seen what everyone has created!

Stop by Beth, Alli, and Tiffany's blogs to see more sneak peeks of their new sets today. Dawn will have another Color Couture peek on her blog as well.

I will have more projects to share tomorrow so stop by again! Thank you for stopping by today!
