I love fall—the cool crisp air, the gorgeous changing leaves, the pumpkin patch, football, hot apple cider. During this wonderful season my kids’ classes at school often hold a fall celebration. Here’s a quick and easy idea for personalized treat toppers you can give to each child in the class, or to your own kids or grandkids to celebrate fall. You could even make some and give them out to trick-or-treaters at Halloween.
Supplies: cardstock (Stampin’ Up); patterned paper (Stampin’ Up, We R Memory Keepers); ribbon (Stampin’ Up); rickety fence border maker, circle maker (Creative Memories); rubber stamps and ink pad (Stampin’ Up); electronic die cutting machine (Cricut by Provo Craft); foam squares (Creative Memories)
Here’s what you need:
• Patterned paper
• Ziploc treat bags
• Fall candy or other goodies
• Alpha stamps or stickers
• Punches or die cutting machine
Here’s how to make the treat toppers:
• Fill your snack bags with candy or other goodies. Measure the length. Mine are 6 ¾ inches long.
• Trim patterned paper to 4 x 6 ¾ inches (or 4 inches by the length of your bags). Score at 2 inches and fold.
• Place the paper over the top of the bag and staple twice—once at each end close to the bottom of the topper.
• Add a punched or die cut border above the ribbon, a die cut or punched pumpkin, and a monogram with the first initial of each child to the bag. Finish off with a bow (for girls) or square knot (for boys).
Design tip: consider including navy blue with your traditional fall color palette. It’s a hot color this season!
