Cookie Cutter Halloween Treat Pouch

September 2, 2016 No Comments

Labor Day Weekend is here.   Football season has begun.  School is in.  And while it is not “officially” Fall, these things make me willing to look to creating for Fall.  The 70 temperature today doesn’t hurt either.

There are so many reasons to do something nice for another person but my personal favorite has to be “just because”.  And “just because” creations can take on any theme you care for.  Since I’m feeling a little Fall-ish today, I went with a theme that can carry you through right up to Thanksgiving.

I’ve used the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set

Cookie Cutter Halloween Treat Pouch from theartfulinker.com

and created this little treat pouch.

The pouch is made from a 6″ x 7-1/2″ piece of Cajun Craze cardstock.

With your cardstock in the landscape position, score 1″ in from one end.

Then turn the cardstock to the portrait position and score at 2-7/8″ and 5-3/4″.

Next, you’ll trim the end of the pouch with the 1″ score as shown.

The easiest way is to fold on the center score line and cut both end pieces at one time.

Then, add Tear and Tape to the 1/4″ tab.

Fold the opposite side over and adhere it to the tab.  Burnish along the seam with your Bone Folder and your pouch is almost finished.

Tip: The front of the pouch is smooth rather than the side where you can see the seam.

Tuck the back 1″ tab up into the bottom of the pouch.  Then wrap the front tab to the back and use a piece of Tear and Tape to adhere it to the back of the pouch.  This leaves you with nice clean lines on the front.

I’ve stamped my scarecrow from Cookie Cutter Halloween in Crumb Cake on Very Vanilla cardstock.  After cutting it out with the coordinating Cookie Cutter Builder Punch, I used a Blender Pen and inks to color him in.

To make the ink available to the Blender Pen, just squeeze the front and back of the closed inkpad together gently.  The contact transfers a little bit of ink to the inside lid of the ink pad and then you’re ready to color.

To finish the pouch, I added a 2-3/4″ x 3″ piece of Garden Green cardstock to the bottom front of the pouch after cutting it with Fringe Scissors.

Then a 1-1/2″ x 3″ piece of Crushed Curry was cut with the Fringe Scissors and tucked in the top of the pouch (it’s just on the front side so that it’s easy to get the treat in and out of the pouch).

A 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Chocolate Chip makes the scarecrows post.  After adding loops of Linen Thread, the scarecrow is attached with Dimensionals.

The pouch holds a personal size package of M&M’s in your favorite flavor…or there’s.
