2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Kraft Envelope Goody Bag - Eco Friendly Wedding Favor Idea on: November 01, 2013 06:20:36 AM
This is for all the environmentally conscience brides. Its an Eco-friendly wedding party favor to hand out to your guest and thank them for coming. What makes is environmentally friendly is the 100% recycled and recyclable kraft envelopes.



Here's what we used to make it:

Materials:
Kraft envelope 6 x 9 Open Ended http://www.jampaper.com/Envelopes/ClaspOpenEndEnvelopes/ColoredClaspOpenEndEnvelopes
Kraft shredded tissue in green and white
Kraft Paper
Heart Hole Puncher
Pencil
Marker
Candy or Goodies

Simply decorate the front of the kraft envelope with a sharpie and a pencil to give it a bark/tree theme. We like puns so we went with a clever "Don't leaf empty handed."

We cut out the hearts by hand because we had some extra Kraft paper lying around and a lot of time on our hands. But to make things a lot easier use a Giga Heart hole punch 3".

3  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Scary Scarecrow Lantern on: October 24, 2013 11:30:27 AM


Materials:
  • Kraft Lunch Bag
http://www.jampaper.com/Bags/KraftLunchBags
  • Black Stardream Cardtock
http://www.jampaper.com/PaperCardstock/StardreamMetallicPaperCardstock
  • Red Cardstock
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Tea Light Candel

Create the Body

Take the kraft lunch bag and cut 1/2" slits along the top of the bag. This will make it look like the head is made of straw. You can cut the strips as long as you'd like but make sure not too long otherwise they will be too floppy and make the bag tilt over (not a good thing when your adding fire)

Next, with the bag still folded, cut strips on the bottom of the bag. Do not cut them too long. They wont detach because its the secured bottom section of the bag, but it does allow little slits of light to shine through and looks really cool.

Create the Face
To create the face we took our black stardream cardstock and sketched out the mouth and eyes. Since this scarecrow is meant to be spooky you don't need to use perfect lines and it should be jagged. Cut out tow triangle shaped eyes. Cut tiny little red circle from the red cardstock for the scary pupils.

Add the Detail
Last but not least glue everything to the bag and add the tea light. On Halloween night light the candle.

4  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Orange Gift Bag Halloween Trick or Treat Bag Idea on: October 22, 2013 08:21:33 AM


Super easy Trick-or-Treat bag. We took our translucent orange shopping bag and some Anthracite Stardream metallic cardstock.

Print a jack-o-lantern pattern directly on the cardstock and cut out with scissors. Use tape or hot glue gun to attach face to the bag. Let dry. The rope handles are great because they are durable so your kids bag wont rip half way during their trick-or-treating.

So gross looking but soooo realistic. Im not sure I would eat them. You should add them to Oreo dirt pudding.

This kind of reminds me of Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland. Would be cool for an Alice costume.

Adorable way to send guest home with a treat! The clear bags make great ghost. Take some black linen cardstock and some white linen cardstock to make the googly eyes.
