Halloween Treat Bags with Peek A Boo Shaker

Halloween is around the corner, so I wanted to share a quick and easy way to create some Halloween Treat Bags which have a surprise element using the Peekaboo Windows and sequins from Pretty Pink Posh

My main goal was to create something fast and easy to add to the Halloween treat bags which I filled with some candy and thought these cute little tags would be perfect for family and friends at work. 

Here, I pulled out the Stitched Essentials 1 and used all three tags from the collection using some white card stock. Keep in mind, I die cut the tags as a solid piece. Next, I grabbed the new Peekaboo Windows and placed them on top of the tags where I wanted the windows. Added some acetate behind it.

For the base of the tag, I die cut three more solid tags and stamped inside using the new Halloween Friends set along with the Coordinating Dies which makes it easy to cut them out. Plus, this set has so many cute images that I love. 

For me, I love using fun foam to create shakers, so I ran all three tag dies again, but with the white fun foam. Once again, I placed the Peekaboo Windows on top of the foam to run them through the die cutting machine. I love how it cuts out beautifully. You can use foam mount tape as well to create the shaker.

Since the Peekaboo Windows create a score line on top, I used a craft knife to cut out the remainder leaving me with a view. At this point, I decided to use several sequin colors starting with 4mm Tangerine4mm Sugar Plum Mix, 4mm Mossy Green, and a touch of 4mm Sparkling clear sequins.

As I was playing around, I thought these Autumn Seed Beads would be great to add as a shaker element since I love the way they shake inside. Added some twine in various colors to each tag to add some more details.

To add these little tags, I pulled out the Stitched Labels 1 and cut it in half to glue on top and bottom of the shaker. This way, I could place the tag onto the treat with some mini cloth pins.

Since I was opening and closing these Peekaboo WindowsI wanted a way to keep the panel closed until the person received it. Therefore, I added some foam mount tape under the center of the bat and under the left wing only. 

This way, the right wing is used to keep the window closed until the party opens up for a little surprise. 

Again, these were fast and easy to make and can't wait until they receive their Halloween treat bags along with their little surprise element and help from these Stitched Essentials 1 die and Peekaboo Windows from Pretty Pink Posh
