Halloween Bag




Good Monday Morning Peeps!! How was your weekend? Ours was good, good but still HOT!! I am ready for some cooler weather how about you?

Today I have a fun little box/bag to share with you. I made this bag along with my BFF Angie Kennedy Juda, she did a live Ustream broadcast on Saturday at noon, I missed the live broadcast but you can replay the video, there is a link to it on her blog. I really don't know her, so she is just my pretend BFF, but I know if I knew her she would really be my BFF!!!! LOL!!!

The bag is so much fun, you do NO cutting on this baby!!! just scoring and folding!! You don't even have to use any adhesive if you don't want, I did, of course because I am just anal that way!! I changed my up just a bit from hers, I used pumpkin pie card stock and the DS paper is from a retired Halloween pack. The little witch on the front is from the Greeting Card Kids stamp set. She is stamped with black stazon ink onto shimmer white card stock. I colored with my aqua painter and ink pads. The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. I had originally stamped the greeting directly under the little witch on the shimmer card stock, but messed it up so decided to cover it up by stamping onto a separate piece and using my word window and modern label punches. The main image is matted with basic black and added to the bag with some foam tape.

I used the oval punch to add a "handle" to my bag. Now if you do this be sure to punch this before glue together, because you need to punch through three layers of card stock and you know that isn't possible, ask me how I know!!! LOL!!! I already really knew that but I had to try right? I added some black striped ribbon to the top!! So stinkin' cute huh?

Thanks for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
