Boo! Treat Bag Holder

Hi there! Here are the step by step photos I promised for the treat bag I made last week.

Side View. All the images are from Asela Hopkin's new set, Boo!

I used some little clear bags from Michaels and put a few Hershey's Nuggets inside.

I cut a piece of Pure Luxury Vibrant Violet cardstock to 3.5 by 11 inches. Then scored at 4, 4.5, 5 and 9 inches.

Folded and creased at shown.

I stamped the banner from Boo! and colored with Copics, starting with YR07.

Added YR04.

Filled in with YR12.

I did the other two letters the same way, then colored the spiderweb section with V06, Vo4 and V01. I did the lavender the same way as the orange, starting with the darkest color and getting lighter.

After coloring, I trimmed around the image, leaving a small white border.

Then I adhered the banner to the top flap (the two inch section). I left extra space above the image to allow me to punch holes for ribbon later.

Then I trimmed the flap around the bottom of the banner, leaving a small border.

After trimming the flap, I added a piece of Scor-Tape to the inside, just below the fold line.

Adhered the bag with the Scor-Tape.

Cut a piece of Pure Luxury White to 3 by 3 inches. I masked off the moon with a 1 1/4 inche circle, then sponged Memento Cantaloupe.

Sponged Memento Tangelo.

Sponged Memento Lulu Lavender.

Sponged Memento Grape Jelly.

Removed the moon mask and sponged a tiny bit of Cantaloupe so it wouldn't be so bright.

Stamped the house/tree with Stazon Jet Black.

I inked up just two of the three bats and stamped.

Adhered to the front of the treat bag holder, layering with Pure Luxury White and Sweet Mango.

The pumpkins were colored with Copics, starting with YR07.

Added YR04.

Filled in with YR12.

Used YG25 on the stems. After coloring, I cut out the image and adhered it to the front of the treat holder.

I punched two holes at the top, in the space above the banner and placed a ribbon through them, tied with a bow.

And here is the finished project. Thanks for stopping by. I hope your day is great!
