Sweet Broom Sticks! - My Creative Time September Mini Release Blog Hop

Good Morning!  Welcome to the MCT release blog hop!  You should have arrived here from Cassandra's Blog.  If not, you can start at the beginning here.
Emma has released 3 sets today.   "All Around Goodies",  "Just for you" and  "Just Tags"! 
I have used parts of all the sets on my "broom sticks".  I love these because the children can rip the bottom open to get at the treats!
 





 
Here is how I made these brooms:
 
 First I took a kraft bag (3 1/2" x 2" x 6 3/4")  and cut it into 2 pieces with pinking shears.
 
I
I put my treats inside the bottom part of the bag and "crunched it up and taped it around the pencil.
 
 Next I cut strips from the bottom edge up a little more than half way.  I also cut strips about 1" down from the top, being sure to leave sufficient uncut space in the middle to keep the paper from falling apart.
 
Then wound the "fringe" piece around the bag containing the treat and secured it with a piece of hemp.  I used my bone folder to curl the pieces under a bit.   Lastly I decorated them brooms with the new MCT Releases!!!
 
List of Supplies:
3 1/2" x 2" x 6 3/4" kraft paper bags  -  Celebrate It
Pinking Shears
Pencil and candy or trinkets
Haunted 6x6 paper pad  -  My Minds Eye
True Black, Kraft and Orange Zest Card Stock  -  Papertrey Ink
 YR04 Copic Marker
Jet Black Archival Ink  -  Ranger
10" pieces of Hemp  -  Liz's Paper Loft Boutique
Stickers  -  Jolee's and Recollections
Spiced Marmalade and Black Soot Distress Inks
