Make it Monday ~ Upcycled Googly Eye Treat Bags

Now that the birthday celebration is over, it's time to get back to regularly scheduled programming LOL!  Many of you thought these googly eye treat bags were cute so I thought I'd share a quick tute.  The thing I love most is that they were upcycled from these mini paper sacks I used for packaging under my old shop name...yes, I am a bit of a collector, but these are so cute can you blame me?

 Here's what you need to create the accordion fold rosettes:
12 x 12 scrapbook paper
paper trimmer
scoreboard and paper scorer (I like to use a stylus)
small bits of scrapbook paper
hot glue gun
paper sacks
scrap paper
googly eyes
bull clips

Cut two strips, 1 1/2 x 12 inches, per rosette. Score the strips every 3/4 inch.
Once your strips are scored, accordion fold each one to look like those in figure three.  Take the ends of each strip and hot glue them together to make one long folded strip.  Then hot glue the other two ends together making a large circle.  Next, form a tight circle, as in figure 4.

Put a dab of hot glue in the center of the rosette and press the small scrap of paper on top, hold in place until dry.  Now it's time to embellish your rosette!  I used a Halloween-themed cupcake liner rosette {see the tutorial here}, large googly eyes,
I adhered the rosettes to the bag and added To some scrap paper, adhesive lace ribbon and a bull clip to seal the bag :)  These would work for any holiday treat bag!

Thanks for stopping by!
