Tags 4 You and The Friday Mashup

I made these little cuties for some friends at work for Halloween!  How cute are these?  Each one has 6 Snickers bites.  For those counting calories, that is 150 calories per bag.  One bag of them had enough bites in there to make these 7 bags.  There was one left over, which my husband quickly ate.  That means I couldn't eat it.  Thanks for taking one for the team, babe!

I think this could fit in The Friday Mashup's weekly challenge.  One part of their challenge this weekend was to use orange in a card or project.  I didn't include leaves, but these are orange for sure!  And it's something different than the card... I am branching out!  And they're super cute.

I used some tiny bags that I had and put the chocolate in.  Then I used a piece of 2" by 8 1/2" black strip and scored it at 4 1/4.  I folded it in half around the top of the chocolate bag and stapled it closed (2 staples as close to the middle of the paper/bag.  Then I cut the v in the black paper to make the banner.  I stamped the image from Tags 4 You.  I stamped it in black ink on Pumpkin Pie.  Then I punched it out.  Next I punched out 4 of the black corners and 4 of the Pumpkin Pie.  Then I started layering them.  First the black, then the orange.  Finally, I popped it up on the middle of the black banner.

Love them!

Thanks for looking!

What a fun banner as a bag topper! So fun to create some little, inexpensive gifts for co-workers. Thanks for joining the Friday Mashup this week.

Not only are Snickers my favorite but little stamped treats are the best! I love how bright the orange is with the black, and the banner is a cool topper. Thanks for joining in the fun at the Friday MashUp!
