  • Craft paper bag
  • Orange Ribbon
  • Sponge or blending tool

 

Step 1

Print the Halloween backgrounds papers and elements from the Crafter’s Inspiration Magazine Issue 15.

Step2

To create a blended ink border, pick up Carving Pumpkin Distress ink using a sponge or a foam blending tool. Working in circular motions, apply ink to the borders, blending towards the centre as you go.

Step 3

Cut 3 strips of different patterns of background paper of 3cm x 17cm. Layer the strips in matt black cardstock.

Step 4

Cut out the “Happy Halloween” sentiment and layer it in matt black cardstock. Run the blade of the scissor along the borders to give it a distress look.

Step 5

Stick the stripes and the banner to the bag top of the bag as shown.

Step 6

Use the circle die to cut the  “Trick or treat?” element. Add foam pads in the back and layer it onto a scalloped circle of purple Centura pearl.

Step 7

Affix the “Trick or Treat?” to the centre of the bag. Cut out the Ghost and the bubble speech from the papers and attach them to the banner’s top.

Step 8

Cut out the three pumpkins from the CD elements and stick it to the bag’s bottom.

Step 9

Finally,  create two little bows with the ribbon and attach them to the bag’s handles. Fill with sweet treats and you are done!

Top Crafty Tip:

Change the look of the bag placing the background strips in diagonal or vertical.

 Happy ‘spooky’ crafting,
