If you follow my blog, you know it has been awhile since I have posted anything - and awhile since I have made anything. My sweet mom, Ruth Ann Matthews, was admitted to the hospital the last week of September and passed away September 30. We miss her dearly. She loved papercrafting and making cards and we enjoyed stamping together! She especially liked making little gift packages and treat bags and would have enjoyed this fun little bag.
A quick little Halloween treat bag, this design has no stamping! I used Bo Bunny's Fright Delight 6x6 and cut out one of the little dressed up skeletons on one of the patterned papers for my little tag. It is mounted on another pattern in the 6x6 pad, and then cut out with Spellbinders Petite Scallop Circle dies. I added a little bow with Orange and White Baker's Twine. A cute little paper doily from Wilton and some Kaisercraft orange rhinestones finished the look.
The Polka Dot Bitty Bag makes it so easy and fast and is a generous 6 1/4" x 9 1/4". I wrapped it with 1 1/2" Black and Orange Gingham ribbon, which has a nice, flexible wired edge for shaping. The Prima Pom Poms in orange added a fun texture and some glittery chipboard letters from my stash made a fun finish.
