Quick & Easy Heat Embossed Halloween Tags

These quick and easy Halloween tags are just the thing if you find yourself in need of some last minute treat bag or party favor embellishments for the spookiest holiday of the year! All you’ll need to make a big stack of these are blank gift tags and some basic heat embossing supplies.

Tips : A powder tool really comes in handy for heat embossing projects, especially if you’re embossing on darker paper, as is the case with this project. The powder helps minimize static electricity and helps prevent excess embossing powder from sticking to your paper or cardstock, so you’ll get a much cleaner final embossed image. In addition, you can use a small, dry paintbrush to loosen and remove any additional excess powder before heat embossing.
