I’m using the Tim Holtz Ideology Abandoned  Paper Pad along with the Ephemera packs to create these spooktacular trio of treat bags.

These Ephemera pieces were so much fun to mix and match!

The bags have layers of trims at the bottom for texture and detail.

Coordinating polka dot ribbon bows layered with vintage buttons at the top of the bags helps to give a consistent look.

I created the handles with handcrafted tinsel topped crepe fringe.

Each bag has a paper rosette with a scalloped glitter accent and a piece from the Ephemera pack.

There’s a small doily on each bag and a larger image from the ephemera pack creating a great background for the embellishments.

These bags are great for gifting a treat….but they are equally ideal to use as seasonal decor.

These chipboard sentiments are layered over the flowers and are accented with Onyx Ice Resin glitter shards.
