Avery Elle–Pick N Mix!


ETA:  I added the step-by-step instructions below.

Happy Fri-YAY, friends!!

I’m on my way to the airport as you all are reading this post!  I’ll be picking up two of my crafting girlies for a fun (and hopefully sunny) girls’ weekend!!  There will be lots of crafting, and drinking, and laughing, and drinking, and crafting!!  Does that not sound like so much fun?!!  So I hope you’ll  forgive me for this drive-by post!!  Popping in quickly to share a super fun and easy Halloween treat bag that I created using the new Pick N Mix Stamp Set from Avery Elle!

Cute, right?!!  This project features the Pick N Mix Stamp Set, the coordinating Pick N Mix Elle-Ments, and the Scalloped Banner Elle-Ments, all from the Fall 2015 Release

Here's how I created it:

  1. Using the Scalloped Banner Elle-Ments, die cut the scalloped banner panel from Mimosa Card Stock,  and the pierced banner panel from white card stock.
  2. Trim strips of orange gingham and black and white polka dot pattern paper and adhere them to the white panel; trim off the excess with your scissors.
  3. Stamp the candy bag and candy corn images from the Pick N Mix Stamp Set using Tuxedo Black Ink onto white cardstock; die cut them using the Pick N Mix Elle-Ments.
  4. Color the candy bag and candy corn with Copic Markers.
  5. Stamp the sentiment from the Pick N Mix Stamp Set onto the white panel.
  6. Adhere the candy bag and candy corn to the white banner with foam squares.
  7. Wrap black and white baker's twine at the top of the white banner and tie into a bow.  Adhere the white banner to the yellow banner with foam squares.  Adhere the candy bag and loose candy corn to the white banner with foam squares.
  8. Fill the treat bag with goodies (I got the treat bags at a local party store, but I found some similar on Amazon HERE.) and fold over the top to loosely seal in the contents.
  9. Trim a strip of cute Halloween paper (I used a scrap from my scrap bin) and adhere it to the top of a small clothespin.  Use the clothespin to attach the banner to the treat bag.

I’ve listed the products I used below.
