Miss Kate Cuttables - Halloween Trick or Treat set:
*Witch - using print 'n cut feature of the Cameo
*Trick or Treat title - die cut paper piecing

I adhered the witch with foam squares for dimension.

The Trick or Treat title was adhered to a jumbo Popsicle stick and put in the bag.
Perfect height for it!

Orange and Purple tulle from Amazon.
Gotta love Halloween Candy!
