Halloween Treat Bag & Giveaway

Happy Sunday everyone… hope your all having a lovely weekend and the weather is being kind wherever you may be…

The sun is shining here and the sky is blue .. and my wee shed at the top of the garden is toasty warm with the sun streaming in through the window…

Today I have been concentrating on making my October Design Team Challenge for Wild Orchid Crafts..we were challenged to make a halloween treat bag.


Supplies used:~

  1. Glassine Bag
  2. Black Textured Cardstock
  3. My Minds Eye 12 x 12  Mischievous Patterned paper collection pack
  4. GT-00027 100 Grit German Glass Glitter from Wild Orchid Crafts
  5. GR-00018 1/2″ Black Gingham Ribbon (WOC)
  6. SP-00041 Deep Red Rhinestones (WOC)
  7. Scor Tape and Hot Glue
  8. Black Chipboard Spider from Deb (think its a Tim Holtz Die)

Here is a wee Photo Step by step for you 🙂

Take a glassine bag and line the edges and centre with Scortape


Remove the adhesive backing strips and place the glassine bag face down on the reverse side of the textured cardstock


Trim off the excess, then score the top (open end) to create a closure/flap


Stick down some spooky halloween paterned paper, pick out some ribbon, choose any embelishments, then stick them all down


I already had the spider ready and glossy accented down the glitter glass


then all that’s left to do is fill your treat back and tie a bow in the top to close / seal the bag 🙂
