Favorite treats

I was at the grocery store the other day, looking for something fun to put into some adorable Martha Stewart treat bags I had gotten. And there they were!!! SIXLETS!

As a kid, when I'd come home from trick or treating I'd dump my bag of goodies on the kitchen table and start to pick out what was *mine* and what I'd share! The first thing to go into the *mine* pile was Sixlets! OMGosh, these were my absolute favorite!

The new Anna Wight for Whipper Snapper Designs sets, Spooky Expressions and Hocus Pocus, were perfect for these treat bags. They come with the window, so all I had to do was create a frame using an oval scallop Nestability. I stamped the star from Hocus Pocus with white craft ink all over the bag, added the tag and filled it up with Sixlets.

I stamped the cat (doesn't he just look like he's looking for trouble?) with Black Soot Distress Ink and then covered him in Stardust Stickles. Makes him look a little less ominous, don't you think?

The witches hat on the matching card is mounted on a metal edge tag that I edged with a black Gelly Roll pen. I hung the tag from a button covered in a circle of matching cardstock.

The ribbon is attached to the card with a random sewn stitch (ala my friend Mishie).

I gotta confess. ALL of the Sixlets didn't make it into the treat bag. LOL!
