Trick or Treat in a Candy Corn Bag

Are you ready to have your socks knocked off?  This project that I am about to share with you was also demonstrated on stage at Convention in July and I was so excited to see that Amy included it as one of the make & take projects for our meeting this month.


OMG!  RIGHT!  I mean, whoever looked at that little bag and thought “Candy Corn” is a freaking’ genius!  How’d she do that?  Well, it is really pretty simple.

  1. Cut a piece of card stock to use as a mask and cover approximately the top 1/3 of the cellophane bag.
  2. Using the mask to protect the white top part of the bag, open the Crushed Curry ink pad and drag it across the bag until it is covered in ink, then take a paper towel and wipe off the excess ink.  (Don’t worry about going too far down with the Crushed Curry ink since the next color to be used is darker.)
  3. Move the mask down to cover the Crushed Curry portion of the bag and repeat step 2 with the Tangerine Tango pad.
  4. I turned the bag over and did the same thing on the back side as well.  Once you wipe off the excess ink with the paper towel, the bag should be dry.

Once decorated, these little bags can hold a bag of mini Oreos and pretzels — or a whole bunch of Candy Corn!

If you would like to make some of these goodie bags for your Trick or Treaters, here are the Stampin’ Up! products that were used in the design of this 3-D project (simply click on any of the product pictures and you will be magically teleported to my demonstrator website where you can place your order — it’s easy peasy):
