{One last Halloween post}

I love giving food gifts---baking is something I can do, so I enjoy sharing it. The usual recipients of these gifts are my children's teachers. Thursday night I decided I needed to make them some of my (mom's) famous brownies (it's actually Texas Sheet Cake, but my kids call it "mama's brownies")---I think I've shown it here before. I did a search and I haven't put them up here, so I'll include them in another post sometime---they are truly yummy and only 35-45 minutes from start to finish! Anyway, I hadn't done any stamping and I had lots to do that night, so I whipped up the "brownies" and then used my 2009 Halloween Tags to make these super fast---I love glassine bags for quick presentation of food gifts---the bag can handle something greasy without making a mess. You just slip the brownie in and then close it and add a quick embellishment. These tags took me about 15 minutes and that included cutting out the ghosts---Punches are my friend---they make everything faster. :)

I stamped the tag with black ink on colored paper and punched them out using the 1 3/4" circle punch. Then I punched out a bunch of scalloped circle punches. I used the small and large oval punches for the sentiment. So quick~

Papertrey has several tag sets and they are all this quick and versatile---I highly recommend them~
Enjoy your evening! Caitlin and Carson are coming over tomorrow night and we are going to try to find a date for the wedding---yippee!!
