Hello! Mary here on the blog today I am excited to show you how to create a Halloween treat topper. Today’s tutorial is created using the kit Halloween-ish by Tickled Pink Studio. So to start, I opened up PSE 12 and opened a new file to Letter size 8.5 x 11. My Resolution is 300 px and make sure you are in RGB color mode. Then I use the Custom Shape Tool to make a rectangle with the dimensions W: 6.5 in. H: 5 in. Then the fun part comes with looking through the kit and choosing your paper and elements!
I used my Silhouette to cut out all the goodies to make my treat toppers. Here is a tutorial on the Sweet Shoppe Designs Page to show you how to do a Print and Cut. Here is a picture of my page I created in PSE 12 on the mat ready for my Silhouette to cut.
Once you have all the items cut out, fold your paper cut out in half to make your treat topper. Then decorate using the elements that you had cut out. Here are the 3 toppers I made. You can staple them to a sandwich ziplock bag or even to a paper sack.
You can use treat toppers for about any occasion. Since Halloween is approaching I chose to decorate them for the teachers in my son’s classroom and an extra for a friend. I hope you give it a try! It’s so much fun using the amazing digital goodies to create fun gifts for others.
Here is a close up of one of them.
I hope you enjoyed today’s post and found it useful! Happy crafting!
