Happy Halloween!

Just a quick post to wish you a Happy Halloween.  How many of you recognize this item?  My friend and fellow demo, Debbie Henderson, posted an item she made into a business card holder.  I remembered where I had seen one and low and behold it was this Halloween tape.

Now here is a picture of the back and look at the songs.  Do you remember any of these?  If you do I would love you to post a comment about which songs you remember.

Bags, Tags & Boxes Stampin’ Up! Style!

Fall Bags, Tags, & Boxes Stampin Up! Style

I am sure many of you will guess how I made this cute Halloween pouch.

Stampin' Up! Halloween Pouch TP Roll

If you haven't guessed it is a TP roll!  To my horror I recently read that companies are thinking of eliminating the cardboard center to their rolls?  How is is that going to work?  Any way, I love all the uses everyone has found for them.  Using it to make a pouch is one of my favorites.

1. Staple the bottom of the cardboard tube.
2. Crumple a 6" x 6" piece of Designer Series Paper then flatten it out.
3. Use Anywhere glue stick to glue the DSP to the tube starting at the stapled end. Tuck extra DSP to the inside of the tube.
4. Use a 1/4" hole punch to punch a hole on each side and insert ribbon or cord and knot.
5. Decorate!

Next, is a bag made made with Stampin' Up!'s Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper, which I love!  Again this uses a 6" x 6" piece of DSP the Simply Scored Board. I found the directions for the bag on Sam Donald's blog.  I used the Autumn Accents Bigz die for the leaves and used Linen Thread to "tie" the Autumn Wooden Elements to the leaves which I attached with a Mini Glue Dot.I used a clothespin from the 2014-2016 In Color Clothespins to close the bag.
