The Halloween Cello Bag Treat Topper

You bag contained supplies to create this cute spooky treat…

Assembly is easy – simply layer all the shapes using Snail adhesive and Dimensionals & stamp your tag – I used Dimensionals to lift the stamped circle off of the vellum circle and then used a couple of Mini Dimensionals to lift the bat off of the white circle.

If you want to step this project up you can use an embossing folder to texture the yellow tag and shape the ends of the star patterned paper like I did below using sharp scissors or the Banner Triple Punch…

Fill your bag with candies and then there are a couple of ways you can attach your finished tag to it:

You can tie the top of your bag closed with the Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon, make a small hole in the top of the yellow tag, thread through the Bakers Twine and use it to tie around the bag top finishing with a bow…

OR you can wrap the Glittered Organdy Ribbon around the bag about half way down to create a belly band effect and adhere your tag on top of it – I added a little white bow on the front as a cute finishing touch…
