Spooky-Cute Halloween Treat Bag Toppers

According to the calendar, the official first day of fall will be here on Friday, September 22nd, so I thought it would be fun to plunge right in to Halloween.  Today's project is easy to make and so fun to give!
How about some spooky-cute treat bag toppers to give to all the little ghosts and goblins in your neighborhood.

Here's a snapshot of the products I used.

Here's how I made them:

Cut 10 strips of CCS Gold Glitter Paper that measure 1 1/2" x 11" and score them using a score board at every 1/4".  Fold them like an accordion.    Attach two ends together using Score-Tape

 Press the center down on the back side and adhere a 1" punched circle using 3 large Glue Dots.

Die cut your spooky shapes out of colored cardstock.   I used colors from Basis Cardstock and Pop Tones.  Add color around the edges of the pumpkins using Distress Ink.  Using scalloped circles and nesting circle dies, create a smaller layered medallion.  I used 80Lb Cougar Natural Smooth Cardstock for the top layer and Brown Basis Cardstock for the scalloped circle and then attached the die cuts to the top using Tombow Mono Multi-Purpose Glue .  

Attach the scalloped medallions to the top of the gold medallions using Tombow Mono Multi-Purpose Glue and attach them to wooden clothes pins using a large Glue Dot.

Have fun filling treat bags with candy or other small goodies and clip the bags closed using the spooky-cute clothes pin medallions and watch the little ones smile!
