the twinery anniversary celebration

Halloween Treat Bag |

Today over on The Twinery blog, Anders Ruff is sharing a free printable download of adorable Halloween shipping tags and offering up a super duper prize pack giveaway that you will NOT want to miss out on. So, since I had the inside scoop, I thought I would share how I used the tags to whip up a few crafty creations using, you guessed it, baker's twine!

Using kraft gift bags which I printed directly on, I folded the bag to the back and punched a hole with my Crop-o-Dile, adding Charcoal and Mandarin baker's twine that's been embellished with what I think are snowflakes and that I am hoping look somewhat like spider webs now. What do you think...thumbs up or thumbs down?

For a more adult take on the tags, I used more tags printed on kraft bags, a small ATC sized glassine bag {which has a gift card inside} and used more Charcoal and just a bit of Mandarin baker's twine after stamping BOO on the small jewelry tag. The shipping tag on the right uses Cappuccino as well as Charcoal baker's twine this time and was adhered to black cardstock and border punched at the bottom.

Lots of layering on this larger goody bag...vintage book pages, patterned paper, metal rimmed gift tags, the shipping tag from Anders Ruff and more Mandarin and Charcoal baker's twine. How's that for a smorgasbord of goodness!
