I saw this candy corn bag on Connie Collins' blog and thought it was so cute I just had to make some. Connie is a very talented stamper and a member of the Stampin' Up! 2013 Artisan Design Team. The muslin bags in the Holiday Catalog are the perfect size for wrapping up a treat and nothing says Halloween like candy corn. There are 8 bags for just $9.95. I can think of so many uses for them.
- Insert a piece of cardboard inside the bag to make it sturdy for inking. The white sheets that come in a package of DSP are perfect for this.
- Wrap a strip of painters' tape around the bag to mask off the center of the bag.
- Sponge Pumpkin Pie ink on the bottom in a downward motion.
- Move the painters' tape down to cover the top of the Pumpkin Pie ink. Add another strip of tape to mask the top of the bag leaving the center area open. Sponge this with Daffodil Delight ink. Remove the tape.
- Cut a triangle of Vanilla cardstock and stamp the sentiment and candy. Mat with a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock. Color candy with markers. Punch a hole in the top and thread through the cording. I had to untie the end of the cord and then retied it after attaching the tag.
- Fill a cello bag with candy corn and insert into bag.
- Give to your favorite goblin.
