Voting Begins!! And a Yummy Halloween Treat Envelope

HI everyone!

Today begins the week long voting for the Torendi DT. I hope you will visit and vote for me!! : ) For more information and the card I made, visit this post... Thank you, Thank you!!

Now, a yummy Halloween treat envelope!! I saw something similar to this somewhere, but a bit more complex and I thought how simple and inexpensive it would be to make it yourself. It is also a cute idea for kids either in a classroom or party.

Here is the front of the envelope which I decorated using PTI's set of Spooky Sweets II. I really wanted to make this fairly simple so that it can reproduced quickly.

Here is the back of the envelope when it is closed. Again, using Spooky Sweets II, I used the web and spider to complete this look. I cut out the spider and popped it up on the web. I used SU! Scalloped Punch for the base and the 1 1/2" for the main circle.
The envelope is closed using a piece of velcro.

And here is the envelope open. How it is made is below:

I used a 6.5"x6.5" piece of DP, which in this case is an unknown one, and ran my tape along the outer edges and center. I laid a piece of wax paper (Parchment will do too!) on top and trimmed to size. I turned the paper diagonally and folded in the corners and running tape on bottom flap on the edges. I added my small piece of velcro and then proceeded to decorate the front and back. Add a yummy cookie and you are done!! This can be adjusted to fit any size cookie! I know I have seen some serious, yummy, large size cookies at my local store, so it can be a great little surprise for the kids!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peek!! I hope you have a great day!!

Materials used: Unknown DP, SU! Scallop and Circle Punch, Velcro, PTI's Spooky Sweets II, Wax Paper, Momento Ink, Scrap orange cs, Only Orange ink, Purple mini brads
