Remember last week when I showed you a glimpse of the projects I've been making with my new dies from the Lifestyle Crafts Tricks & Treats & Cornucopia collections? Awesome, right?
I used the doily die from "Cornucopia" for this fun little craft...
Here is the doily die...
And here is what you get after your run it through your die-cutter (any old die-cutter will do! That's what's awesome about the Lifestyle Crafts dies!)...
And are you ready for the tutorial?
*Cut 2 doilies for each pouch you would like to make (I cut mine from Canvas Corp Tissue Stock)
*Glue your doily to another piece of paper (again, I used Canvas Corp Tissue Stock...this time in white)
*Cut your paper around your doily
*Put two of your doily/paper combos together and sew around the circle almost all the way around...back stitch at the beginning and end of your stitches
*Fill your pouch with candy and sew closed
I love the way these little candy-filled pouches look...can't you just see a whole bunch of them sitting in a bowl waiting for little hands to reach in and grab? Or set all over your Halloween party table, doing double-duty as a decoration and snack?
And don't forget...any order you place with Lifestyle Crafts (including those with sale items!) is eligible for a 20% discount with the promo code MIDWESTERN - so awesome!!!
So what do you think? Have you starting crafting/decorating for Halloween yet?
