Stamped Boo Treat Bags

We love to Boo. Do You?

Yes, our neighborhood does that fun Boo game and I finally got my treats done! I had been looking for something cute to hold my big bunch of treats and finally I decided to stamp on white bags.

I started with the fun tissue paper and made my bag to match. (I like to call this Semi-Homemade gift packaging.)

I also did something different and fun this year. I Boo'd my own kids! I snuck outside, left the treats at the door, rang the bell and ran inside through the garage. I got to stand behind them just as they were discovering their treats. Katelyn said, "Those are from Mommy! Those are her stamps!". Smart girl!

TAC's Penelope Bind It All Book

The Angel Company now carries the new Bind It All V2.0, that cuts thicker materials and has an improved guide for making multiple cuts.

This project, from TAC's Annual Seminar is a great example of the chunky things you can bind with the BIA. A Maya Road Chipboard Book was taken apart, covered with Penelope Paper and bound so that the pages flip this way and that. It's a super fun book that I used for some of my favorite Yellowstone photos.

Here are some pages from the book. (Click on the photo to enlarge.)
