September SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month's set is called Thriller!  This is a fun Halloween set which includes 9 stamps and has fun holiday sayings.

If you have come here from Misty Jackson's Blog you got a taste of the talent represented in this hop! We have over sixty Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations, using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products. It is simple to hop along - just click on the link at the end of the post to move to the next one!

Here is what I made this month:

I used a clear card to make this little treat bag for Halloween.  You can stuff with candy or some other goody for the holiday. 

I kept the outer film on the clear card until I had all embossing and scoring completed to protect the card from scratching.

Here is a detail shot:
I ran a clear card through a cuttlebug with an embossing folder.  Then I sanded the embossed image to give it a frosty look.

I placed the card opening up and then scored each side and the bottom 3/4".  I then folded into a box, made a couple snips along the sides to fold the sides in and adhered the bottom with glue dots.  A hole through the each side at the top was room to string ribbon through for my bag handle.

Inside the bag is tissue paper stamped with various images from the SOTM set and this bag is ready for Halloween Treats!

Remember, the September SOTM is only available until September 30! Contact your CTMH Consultant to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!
