Gnomes & Halloween – They Go Together Like…

Candy Corn and Dry-Roasted Peanuts? Caramel and apples? What are your favorite Halloween combos? I created these treat bags from the Stampin’ Up! Peekaboo Treat Bags and the Gnomes Dies:

I cut a bunch of Gnome parts out of Granny Apple Green, Crushed Curry, Basic White, Pumpkin Pie, and Gorgeous Grape. The paper for the hat is from the Celebrate Everything DSP. I also cut some tags using plaid pattern from the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Papers. I started combining the different parts to make several fun Halloween Gnomes, one for each Peekaboo Treat Bag!

I attached the gnomes to the plaid tag, and added a bow made from Parakeet Party 1/8″ Metalic Woven Ribbon. I attached the whole tag to the bag using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Before attaching, I used some Snowfall Accents Puff Paint and the heat gun to make the gnome’s beard come alive! Love it!

Finally, I constructed some little Candy Corn candies. I took a panel of Basic White card stock, and attached strips of Pumpkin Pie, Basic White, and So Saffron cardstock, butting each up next to the other. From there, I was able to cut out a bunch of candies using the coordinating dies.

The dies make the cutest gnomes ever!

And of course, the dies coordinate with the darling stamp set, suitable for use all year long, along with the adorable papers! Here’s the entire suite collection:

Before filling, I used a Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad to stamp a fun greeting from this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit. The Peekaboo Treat Bags come in White and Kraft, and are the perfect size for all kinds of spooky treat! Here are a few that I made!

See below for a list of all the products I used to make these fun bags!
