Halloween Card & Treat Bag

You know those GEO Dies I was ooohing and aaahing about? Well I did use some on one more Halloween card and then made a treat bag to sort of match. The large die cut is GEO Die #8 and small is GEO Mini #3. I attached the big one to the card with PopDots , then the mini to that one with PopDots and the added the little cute ghost with PopDots. I like to be able to see through the lacey designs.
Below is a side-ish view to show the "popped" effect. I used a double layer of PopDots between the 2 GEO Dies diecuts. Some how I think they seem to have an illusion of spinning, maybe because these remind me of a pinwheel.
Here is my list of ingredients: (everything with a * can be found at )
Glue Dots*
Geo Dies*- Lg. #8 & Mini #3
Cardstock is Best Creation 6x6 Glitter pad called "Happy Haunting"* (all of those patterns!)
Circle stamp is JustRite*, colored with colored pencils
"Happy Halloween" stamp is from StampingScrapping Designs, the "Holiday" set*
Ribbon & Buttons are from my stash

Now a few pix of the treat bag I made. I have 5 grandkids so I think I'm going to need to kick it in gear and quick make 4 more! The bag topper is a Sizzix die cut. The die plate is called "Treat Bag Toppers"*. So easy! It has the cute scalloped edge and 2 little holes near the top for ribbon or string. I stapled it on the bag and then added the decorations. The die plate has 3 sizes of toppers, small, medium amd large (I used large) as well as hearts, ovals and a fancy label. The toppers punch out as a square and have a line to show where to fold them in half. The other toppers are different shapes...even cuter!
My other ingredients (besides the candy!):
Vintage Black Twine*
Witches hat, face & feet, from the "Best Witches" set from StampingScrapping*
(and the "treat" sentiment)
"Spooky" sentiment is from the "Holidays" set, also from SS
