Hello everybody! Soraya here today to share fun ideas to make your own Halloween treat bags and decorate them using the Tassel Loom! The tassels will become a bat, a witch’s broom and a ghost !
First of all you will need to make 3 tassels out of twine and yarn. The bat and the ghost are made with the Stitch Happy threads and the witch broom is made with orange cotton yarn. The Tassel Loom is the perfect tool to create all the any size tassel!
Let’s start with the witch broom tassel! Instead of using yarn to create a handle for it, I used a piece of brown wire (the one in the Happy Jig collection) and twisted it on the top. This is one spooky broom so I added two scary eyes on it and some spiders too!
The tassel bat is made in black thread. I cut two wings in a black embossed cardstock with my scissors and glued them on the back before adding a “boo” brad on the front.
The tassel ghost is my favorite one! I made a white tassel using thread at the smallest size the Tassel Loom could do. I added the eyes and the mouth with crystal dots. How fun!
And here are the three tassels reunited!
Let’s make the bags now! The Fringe & Score Board helped me shape the carstock with perfect lines! Don’t forget to let some room in the middle using the small ruler. There will have to be about 2 inches on both edges.
Use the Mini Score Board to mark the fold on the paper (they will be the bottom of the bag).
Place the treat bag inside then glue each fringe together with the Mini Glue Gun. Then gather all the fringes in one paper border like this:
Time to decorate each bag with the funny tassels! And voilà!
I hope you had fun joining me today, happy creating everyone and until next time!
