Halloween Gift/Treat Bags!

 The week's new releases from A Day For Daisies  were so inspiring to me!  There are many wonderful images and among them my favorites - children in simple masks.  I started thinking about how adorable it would be to host a "mask parade" party (kind of a play on the word "masquerade"!) and the kids could craft their own masks.  I would sooo do this but my !ittle girl is all grown! *giggle*  So I decided to make treat bags for the handful of little ones I know between friends and neighbors!

I used Tammy's "Elephant Mask" digi and incorporated the sentiment (I used Microsoft Home Publishing) and then printed onto Cryogen cardstock.  I colored her up with copics and cut out the image with an SB classic rectangle. I cut out another rectangle (but this one was scalloped) from purple cardstock and punched holes in each scallop to tie a small scraps of ribbon (grosgrain 1/4" white ribbon colored with copics to match).  I mounted the whole thing onto printed cardstock and put it on the bag using pop dots(so I could run the orange ribbon behind the image and around the bag.  The bag can double as a treat bag too!

Then I couldn't help but make a sample of the mask!  The precious elephant mask is a free printable from from  I printed it several times on several colors of cardstock and then cut out and layered with pop dots.  My favorite part is her big pink bow and sparkle eyelashes (I used fake eyelashes that  from Walmart!)  The gift bag contains several copies of the mask printed on different colors of cardstock and I threw in a few choices for ribbons, a set of eyelashes, pop dots, child-safe scissors, small bottle of glue, and of course, a few "treats"!

So there you have it! Be sure to check out the other images released today as well as the amazing inspiration from the other design team members!

Happy Crafting! <3 Lisa
