Halloween Treat Sack

Today I want to share a little paper sack that I decorated to hold some Halloween treats for a friend.

I tried to stamp the broom and witch's shoes right on the sack, but it didn't make a clear impression (I wasn't thinking about the folds of the bag, lol), and I didn't want to waste a bag, so I put it on cardstock instead.  I used an image and a sentiment stamp from Papertrey, Ink's "Friendship Jar Fall Fillers" set.  I used black Memento ink on Stampin' Up! Whisper White cardstock, then colored it with Stampin' Up! markers.  Then I added a couple of other mats.  I thought the spider web paper added a little spooky effect.

I cut this little witchy hat from Cricut's "Create a Critter 2" cartridge.  It was on a cut with a turtle, but I hid him with my Gypsy.  I added a little chalk ink and a flower with brad to the hat and popped it up over some ribbon from 3 Girl Jam. (There's also some of their orange and black ribbon at the top of the bag.)

I punched the sentiment and its mat with my Creative Memories circle maker, then added the flowers from Recollections and brads from The Paper Studio.  I also used some silver bling by Marc Richards.  It was in strips in a package at Hobby Lobby on clearance.  Since supplies always look better when they are on clearance, I picked them up!  Lol!  I cut the pieces apart to just use them one at a time.

 I'm entering this in the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge.  I picked my main colors/theme from this pic from Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #183:

I'm also entering this treat sack into these challenges:

Hope you enjoyed looking--I'm glad you stopped by.  Now did you notice that candy outside of the treat sack??  Those are caramel apple Werther's--the next best thing to real caramel apples--well, kinda!

See you soon!
