- Crepe Paper (party streamers, I found mine at Dollar Tree) cut off about 1.5 feet
- Thread and Needle
- Two Sided Tape
To begin, thread needle and begin first stitch. I don't mess with knotting the thread, instead I just tape the end of the thread to the crepe paper. Start stitching about 1/4 of an inch from the edge. I usually stitch with about a half inch between each stitch.
Begin to bunch the crepe paper together as you stitch.
Once you have scrunched the crepe paper to your desired look hold the thread in place and put a small piece of two sided tape over the hole and end of the thread.
Cut the thread and crepe paper and apply one piece of two sided tape to one of the edges.
For these Halloween treat bags I put some liquid glue on the very edge of the crepe paper and dipped them in glitter. Then I layered cardstock tags and stickers.
I hope you learned something new, and will try it soon. If you do, I would love to see what you create. You can either post it on your blog and put the link in the Mister Linky below, all I ask is that you mention my blog and provide a link to it on your blog post. If you don't have a blog post the picture in my flickr group by clicking here and I will add it to the post. Join our flickr group and you may be featured on my Friday Favorites Post.
