Unity Halloween Treat Bags

I'm lovin' these treat holders made using the bag from Unity Stamps July 2012 KOTM.  Lindsey from The Frugal Crafter has a great video using another bag stamp creating Christmas gift card holders, what a wonderful idea!!  If  you add the ribbon on top these will also hold a gift card but I put some peppermint patties inside for Halloween.

 The stamps used on the front are from Unity's Too Cute To Spook set and I used some Orange Licorice Trendy Twine for the handles.  The ribbon is just some white seam binding I quickly dyed using some distress ink.

I stamped 3 on one piece of 8 1/2" x 11" kraft cardstock and then cut them apart.

I scored on the bottom of the bag and then from that score I went in 3/8" and scored and then another 3/8" and scored.

Holding the bag together I cut around the top and both sides, you don't have to be so precise just ink the edges after.  Punch two holes and use ribbon or twine for your handles, you can also add tissue paper like Lindsey did in her video.  Definitely check out her youtube channel, she has so many wonderful videos.
