Booooo! Halloween is rapidly approaching and I am posting a Halloween craft each week as part of Terrorific Tuesday. This week, I want to share with you this paper bag that I decorated to use as a Halloween gift bag or a trick-or-treat bag. In addition, this will make a cute Halloween lunch bag for you or your children.
I started with a plain gray gift bag. The spooky haunted house and the bat are die cuts using Halloween dies by Brenda Pinnick for Sizzix (available currently in craft stores). Other supplies needed are – black Sharpie pens(felt tip and thin tip), glue stick and black, white and yellow cardstock. Optional – I used crystals heat set with a wand for the cat eyes.
Draw ghosts and cut out. Draw and cut out black top hat and cat from black cardstock and a moon and window light from yellow cardstock.
Arrange haunted house, cat, moon, bat, and ghosts and glue. For the ghosts, glue the bottom point areas so that the tops can stand out from the bag. Glue the cat except for the tail.
Draw the word Boo and small bats.
If you are carrying a bottle of wine to a Halloween party, you can use the same design on a wine bottle bag, just spread the design elements more vertical.
I hope each of you is enjoying a nice fall and your preparations for Halloween festivities.
