Spooky Bag

I've had a bundle of these lovely white paper bags with handles since I first joined Stampin' Up in 2003! Not sure about you, but I have a bad habit of holding onto some of my supplies, waiting for 'just the right project'!

However, I know that another big move is in the offing, and I've decided I need to streamline. I've been using up lots of pretty paper and designer cardstock for my rubber stamping classes; and the other day, I decided it was time to liberate some of these bags.

During class, the gals each made a bag, which features lots of dies and punches. To start with, we used the sweet Stampin' Up owl punch, which is sitting in an iridescent moon. I also used a Tim Holtz Sizzix house die, which looks great as a silhouette of black haunted houses. A piece of dark blue cardstock was the background, and the star stamp came from SU Jack of All Trades. Pretty black and white ribbon pulls the final look together.

Perfect for a Halloween gift bag or trick-or-treat bag to collect candy.
