They are Trick-Or-Treating the Saturday before the holiday this year so I needed to snap-to on getting the treats packed up for the kids. True to a paper crafter's nature, I throw nothing away. I have this bin full of Halloween themed scraps and trinkets from over the years. Yes, there's one for Christmas and Valentine's too... from this I can whip up tags for the treat boxes.
This pile of stuff transforms to backgrounds first. I save the negative images from my die cuts too. They always add interest to otherwise plain backgrounds.
Then come the stickers, trinkets, ribbons and what-have-you. Before you know it, there are a pile of finished tags and a smaller pile of trinkets and trash. The mom's like these too. They add them to their own scrap book pages. They make good bookmarks, although, since each has a pin on it suitable for pinning to your backpack, you'd have to take that off before using it as a bookmark.
