The 1" x 8" Cellophane Bags from the Stampin' Up! 2011 Holiday Mini Catalog were designed for a cute little topper. I plan to do some that way, but for Halloween I went a different route to hold and decorate the Pixie Sticks.
Quite simple but cute. After sliding in three Pixie Sticks I closed the self-adhesive end and tied some 1/4" Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain Ribbon around each end. No fancy bows, just a knot.
In the center I add a 1-1/4" x 3" piece of Basic Black card stock. With the Pixie Sticks in the Cellophane Bag, I laid the Basic Black card stock band on my Simply Scored Scoring Tool and made my score lines. Score lines have never been so easy! Before I would score it, get it wrong and have to do it over and over until I got it right. This time I got it right the first time! Love anything that makes a task easier and saves time! The Simply Scored Scoring Tool is just that.
My cute little pumpkin is from the Stampin' Up! Got Treats stamp set. I inked the stamp with Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink and without removing any of the ink, I used the Old Olive Classic Write Marker to color the stem and vine. The stamped image looks great and my marker seems no worse for the wear.
Starting to get some ideas for the 1" x 8" Cellophane Bags? You get 50 of them for only $2.50! One nice benefit of them not being very big is that it won't cost you a fortune to fill them if you wanted to make a lot for favors or a large scale give-away.
