YNS Challenge 53: Halloween!

It's all things Halloween for YNS Challenge #53, and in honor of that Karen would like to offer up a free YNS Halloween digi to everyone who would like to participate in this week's Halloween challenge. All you need to do is email her (, let her know you'd like to participate in challenge #53, and she'll send a digi to you--how cool is that?! In addition to that, you can also win EEK the Bat cling stamp by playing along as well as the YNS blinkie to display on your blog! Finally, yours truly is YNS53 challenge hostess, and I'd like to show you a really quick, easy and cute Halloween treat bag idea for you to try!

Here's what I used to make these treat bags:
  • 3 3/4 x 6 inch glassine bags
  • YNS Spooktacular stamp set
  • 2 1/2  x 3 inch piece patterned paper
  • 1 3/8 inch circle punch
  • staples, mini clothespins, etc.
  • Stamp desired Halloween image on lower edge of glassine bag and set aside to dry.
  • Stamp sentiment on lower edge of patterned paper (2 1/2" end) and notch a banner edge with scissors.
  • Punch circles from desired patterned paper or cardstock.
  • Fill glassine bags with desired treats and fold top edge over about 1/2".
  • Fold stamped banner and punched circle over top edge of bag and staple to secure.
  • If using a mini clothespin, staple bag under the punched circle; adhere circle and attach clothespin.

This is a great way to use up scraps of patterned paper and cardstock, so have fun with these! Be sure to hop on over to the YNS Blog for all the challenge details along with everyone playing along with more yummy Halloween samples!
