Halloween Treat Bags

Peachy Keen is starting a new challenge on Fridays, called "Let's Face it Friday." The rule for this challenge is to use Peachy Keen face stamps on your project. For their first challenge they ask that you make Halloween Treat containers, and of course to use a Peachy Keen face stamp on it somewhere.
I made these little treat containers using a K&Company Halloween paper pack. I started off with a 8 1/2"x11" piece of cardstock and after it is all folded the container is 3 1/2"x4 1/2." I used Mini Monsters (I am really lovin' this cart) for all the characters on the containers. The Frankenstein character and the candy corn girl are both cut at 4." The cat is cut at 3." I used the shadow feature for all of them so they would stand out on the patterned containers. I used pop-dots to adhere them to the containers. I also used glossy accents on the hair and boots of Frankenstein, the boots of the candy corn girl and the pink part of the ears on the cat. I used some Stickles on the white part of the candy corn and I flocked the stomach of the cat. I finished off the bags with some eyelets and ribbon to close them. The faces on Frankenstein and the candy corn girl are from the Critter faces set and the face on the cat is one of the stamps that came with the Cottage Cutz dies, it is for the Tear Kitty. These are the only Peachy Keen stamps I currently have, so I made them work for me. I think they all turned out really cute though. Enjoy!
