Hi everyone. Tiffany here again with another project using the "This is Halloween" kit. Here I made some large pocket treat gift tags that are perfect to fill with candy and all sorts of goodies to give to someone special.
I basically used a couple of the vertical 4x6 cards from the cut apart sheet as well as one of the personal sized planner pages that I just trimmed down to 4x6 for the base of the tags. I made sure that the main design of the cards ended up on the back so that there was something on the front and back of the tag. On the front, I either left the original pattern or covered it up with some of the pattern paper from the kit.
So I made three tags. This first one I wanted to make using the traditional Halloween colors of the kit. So I kept to the black, white and orange color scheme and pulled out all the pieces that matched. The back of this tag is the orange "Boo" card. I left the black and white triangle pattern to be the back lining of my pocket and used the black, white and orange star paper to create the pocket. I embellished the pocket with bits from both the ephemera die cut pack and the cut apart sheet. I also added one of the flair buttons to a paperclip and attached it to the pocket to give the whole thing some fun flair.
For the inside, I took the orange ledger card from the cut apart sheet and embellished it with the spider "Halloween" die cut, which I ended up sewing through. I layered a branding strip that I cut into a flag banner and a few of the word phrases to say "trick or treat." I used one of the gold foiled words to add a little shine then embellished with enamel dots that I got from my stash. I stapled one of the smiling pumpkins to the top left corner, which holds the orange and white tag that I wrote to say "From Wendy To Casper." And in the pocket I just put a fun size packet of M&Ms, but you can easily fill it with any type of candy goodies you want. To finish it off, I punched a small hole to the card, added a few reinforcement stickers and strung some orange and white twine through it to make it look more like a tag.
I constructed the other two the same way. For this tag I used the mint card with the smiling pumpkin on it for the back and covered the original backing on it with the black and white "boo" paper with all of the fun Halloween icons on it to be the lining of the pocket. For the pocket, I used that purple polkadot paper to bring in more of the colors from the kit. I embellished this pocket with mint and purple bits from the kit, making that mint "trick or treat" square sticker my focal point. I actually mounted it on one of the black and white papers before adhering to the pocket. I added a few ticket stubs, some candy corn and one of the spider web stickers to finish it off. For the paperclip, I used the smiling pumpkin flair button that matches the back of the tag, just to keep it consistent.
For the inside bits, I left this one quite simple. I added the purple card that says "Halloween is my favorite thing" as well as the black and white tag that says "so boo-tiful!" I can always go in and write a little something on the back of the card to personalize if for the person I'm giving the tag too. Again, I added a little packet of M&Ms just to make it more festive. And I punched my whole at the top of the card and strung it with a purple and white twine to add a bit more of that purple color.
This last card is a bit similar to the previous one I shared except that I tried to add a bit more of the pink that's in the kit into it. For this one, I used one of the personal sized planner pages, the one with the witch walking her cat on a leash, as my base. I covered the back of the card with the purple, white and orange plaid paper to act as the pocket lining. For the pocket, I used the purple and orange spider heart paper and embellished it with a few bits from the ephemera pack. I used the mint "Halloween=" card as the focal piece for the pocket and added that cute cat witch and a few candy corn pieces to accent it off. For the paperclip, I used the ghost flair button because it had that pink in it.
For the bits in the pocket, I used that pink ghost tag and that pink jack o'lantern heart card that I ended up mounting on the black, white and orange star paper, to give it a nice border. I also used one of the branding strips and cut up the phrase "Halloween is my favorite thing!" so that it framed the heart in a banner-like fashion on the card. Added another candy packet, punched the hole and strung some mint and white string to bring out the mint of the card, and this large pocket tag is done!
You can use these little tags however you want. I think they'd make a great little Halloween treat for maybe your kids to take and handout at school. You can even attach them to a gift by tying the string around the item. For example, I'll be gifting this set of Mickey Ears to a friend, so might as well add a few treats for her too! All I have to to is write a little note on the back of the little card that's in the pocket and I have myself a cute little Halloween gift to give to her!
I hope you enjoyed this fun little project!
