August Papertrey Bloghop


The challenge this month is to make something with a brown lunch bag. This is what I came up with

I know it is a bit early to be thinking about Halloween since it is still August but but when I thought about what I wanted to make for this challange the first thing that came to mind was a treat bag for Halloween. It also just so happened that my new Tiny Treats Halloween Set and Mat Stack 4 die arrived just in time to use too.
I started by cutting off the top half of the paperbag. Next created the handles using 2 circle nestabilitie dies then cutting them in half. To decorate the front and back of the bag I attached some black cardstock. After that I attached another piece of Plum Pudding Cardstock that I ran through my cuttlebug using the polka dot embossing folder. Next I stamped the main image from the Tiny Treats Halloween set on the Mat Stack 4 die using Orange Zest ink. When I was done with that I stamped the sentiment and candy corn and colored them with Copics. A piece of Summer Sunrise Twill ribbon finishes it off. These are very simple to make and would make great treat bags for kids parties this Halloween. You could make a whole set with the other images in the set too.
I look forward to seeing what everyone else comes up with now. As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great night!
