I’ve been pondering what to make as Halloween treats for our grandchildren to take to school for their Halloween parties this year. I needed some inspiration, and that inspiration came when I saw this amazingly cute ribbon bat idea from Kierste over at Brown Paper Packages. In my mind’s eye I knew I wanted to use the ribbon bat and then I remembered a download that I had received from Amy at Living Locurto and the two ideas just came together. This is the result and I must say I’m pretty happy with the design.
I changed the tags just a bit as I decided to use my scalloped circle die from Spellbinders to cut and emboss the tag rather than punching it out with a circle punch as Amy had suggested. I thought adding texture and using a scalloped edge would add a little bit of something. Narrow ribbon was used only because it worked better for the size of the bag. Sheer ribbon was used instead of satin because I couldn’t find a black satin ribbon at the store. I think the sheer narrow ribbon looks just fine though.
This bag is just the prototype as I need to get feedback from Morgan and Carson first, but I think they’ll approve. I’ll need to make approximately 50 bags, so I’m happy the design has fallen into place to I can get started with them.
I want to thank both Amy and Kierste for their inspiration and talents. If you haven’t checked our their blogs I would highly recommend hopping on over as they are both incredibly talented and creative.
