Fall Treat Bag Topper

Fall Treat Bag Topper

It’s that time of the year! It’s Fall Y’all. My fall treat bag topper is the first in a three-part fall series.This week I’ll be celebrating fall week with the Celebration Tidings bundle from Stampin’ Up!  I found the Pumpkin Pie Pretzels at my local Dollar General.

My fall treat bag topper was created with Mango Melody cardstock (one of my new favorite colors) and the Plaid Tidings DSP. I’ve got a little secret to share. October 1st, that fabulous DSP will go on sale. Be sure pick up a couple of packs for all your fall projects.

Because I cut the labels in different sizes, I was able to layer them up for my custom made fall treat bag topper. All you need to do is fold it in half and voila, you’ve got yourself the easist project ever!

Next, just stamp your tag, cut a few little sprigs and pop it onto the topper. You’re ready to gift this to your hairdresser, nail tech, kiddos teachers, postal delivery person and so many more that touch your life. Just a little somethin’ somethin’ to show you care and appreciate them.

Here’s how the magic happens.

  • Bag topper – Mango Melody CS – 5 1/2″ x 7″, cut with the largest label die from the Celebration Labels die set.

Need a little gift for a teacher, your nail tech, hairdresser or postal worker? The mini coffee cups are a very generous size and are sold in packs of 8 cups with lids, and they are food safe. Wouldn’t it be cute to fill one with mini marshmallows and the other will hot cocoa mix?

Swing Fold Gift Card Holder

Swing Fold Gift Card Holder

I love it when a project serves double duty. Today’s swing fold gift card holder does just that. It’s a Christmas card and a gift card holder all in one. But wait, there’s more! It’s a fancy fold on top of that.

Swing Fold Gift Card Holder, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

The swing fold has been out there a while. But, this time, we’re going to use that to our advantage. By pulling one side to the right and other to the left, voila you reveal the gift card holder.

Pretty fancy, right? Because I used the Gift Wrapped bundle again today, that stinkin’ cute bow is a quick and easy embellishment for your swing fold.

By adding a little Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and one of the Glitter Star Ornaments, I was able to make this gift card hold a little more special.

I don’t know about you, but I’m over the moon excited that we are fast approaching fall. It’s my favorite time of the year. That’s why I chose the Autumn Goodness bundle for my October 2020 WOW Class to GO! 

Autumn Goodness, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

As soon as I saw the Autumn Goodness bundle in the Aug-Dec Mini Catalog, I got all nostalgic. If you didn’t already know, I’m a farm girl. Grew up on a farm, still live on the land to this day. Fall is one of my favorite times of the year because that’s orange harvest season.  Here I am under one of the grapefruit trees in my Dad’s orchard.

Autumn Goodness, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

The little wheelbarrow in the Autumn Goodness bundle reminded me of the little blue wheelbarrow my Dad has had for years. How many times in my life have I pushed it? Too many to count. Now you see why I just had to choose this bundle for my October 2020 WOW Class to GO!
