Anything But A Card At Bugaboo

Mondas at Bugaboo we showcase projects by the Design Team that are Anything But A Card and this week it is my turn. And how handy for me because I spent a couple of mornings last week making up 35 of these adorable Treat Bags to give away to my party guests.
I used some  Jodie's Halloween Circle Sentiments. You can find them Here in the Bugaboo Store.
I printed the circles at 2.5" and used a punch to cut them out. Makes it quick. I decided to color them with Crayolas. I have been using crayons in my senior class a lot more recently and I like the way it turns out. I use a blending tool and Goo Gone saturated piece of felt to smooth the crayon lines out.
See how great the finish looks. My sister helped me color and stuff bags in between the 4 or five batches of cupcakes that we made.
This tray full of treats were sitting on a little table in the entry hall so everyone could grab one on their way out the door.
 
I think everyone had a great time at the party and now it is time to move on to my Mothers Memorial Service next weekend and my trip to visit with my brother in Tucson and My daughter and grandsons and other brother in Austin Texas. Before that though I have to make a bunch of projects to post while I'm gone. It will be a busy week for me. I hope as always that you have a great one.
