I made a Halloween treat bag and a matching Halloween Tag for my project.
I started with a 6 1/4'' x 6 1/4'' envelope. I sealed the envelope and then cut off the fold at the top allowing for the opening. Then I scored the three sides with the folds at 1/2''. To create the decorative edge I used E8-001 Classic Scallop Edgeabilities® from Spellbinders™ and then I inked all the edges with Old Paper Distress Ink.
The pattern paper is from the Creating with Vintage Patterns CD from Crafty Secrets and I inked the edges with Dusty Concord Distress Ink.
I used some of the images and chipboard pieces from Crafty Secrets Halloween Vintage Postcard Kits to embellish the treat bag.
I layered the papers, chipboard pieces and a few Halloween die cuts as shown. Then I added green trim and black lace to the top of the treat bag. I added some Purple Rhinestones along the scalloped border and then I added some glitter for a little sparkle and filled the treat bag with some yummy chocolate!
To create the tag I started with a piece of Simply Smooth Ivory and stamped several images from the Costume Cuties Stamp Set from Crafty Secrets. Then I inked the edges with Old Paper Distress Ink.
I used Copic markers to color the images.
I layered the papers, added glitter and rhinestones as shown and then I added green trim and black lace to the top and bottom of the tag.
In this picture you can see some of the sparkle from the glitter.
