When I said during Studio Calico reveal that I can't wait to see what everyone "fills" the jar stamp with, a fun idea formed. Why not actually fill it with something? I came up with a simple idea using paper bags which you can use for halloween treats or really any small treat you'll need to think of this fall/winter.

Here's what you need:

Step 1 (important!): Help yourself to some gummy candy to get the creative juices flowing :)

Step 2: Take one of the paper bags and stamp the jar outline on the front. Tip: It helps to pick up the stamp from a flat surface rather than lining it up on the acrylic block.

Step 3: Stamp the jar lid inside of the jar outline.

Step 4: Poke a hole in the paper bag and cut around the inside line of the stamp.

Step 5: Cut a piece of the food grade cellophane to fit inside the paper bag.
Step 6: Use a glue tape on the edges of the cellophane, then place it inside of the paper bag.

Step 7: Through the jar opening in the paper bag, remove the backing from the glue tape strips and press down to bond the cellophane and paper.

Step 8: Sprinkle on some Mister Huey if you want. When the mist is dry, fill your treat bag.

Step 9: Decorate the outside of the bag with washi tape, die cuts and labels. 

… and you're finished! What do you think? They are easy to make and mass produce. If you don't have paper bags on hand, you could play around with envelopes as well or die-cut some with a Silhouette Cameo for example.
