Boo ...

More Halloweenie goodness today - in treat form!

I was playing around with "cool" color combintions (as opposed to warm combinations like red and orange) the other day and landed on purple, grey, and blue.  Not really a traditional Halloween combo, but I think it sets a great tone for a spooky forest and a cute sparkling ghost. 


I do love that little ghost, he's so stinkin' cute.  You can also see in this shot that it all comes together on a great little brown paper bag!

This shot gives you a better look at how it all comes together: I trimmed the top of the bag to make it even, then cut cardstock to match the height and width of the bag.  After that, I cut another piece for the back, adding a bit more length to make the flap that folds over on the front to close it.  Attach the cardstock to the back and front of the back, a bit of ribbon to tie it all together, attach the stamped bit, and you've got one easy peasy, totally cute treat bag! 

Dontcha' want to make a ton of these?  Eeep!

stamps: too cute to spook, spooky boo day, darling dots background (a muse studio)
cardstock: heather, sugar, sky (a muse studio)

Look at you!!! TWO IN A ROW!!! I can just see you enjoying yourself immensely! And, that, my friend, makes me smile! :)

That is just too stinking cute. Love the idea for the gift bag as I use gift bags a lot. Love purple and gray combo. I'm going to have to try it.
