Halloween Gift Sack

I made this gift sack for a workshop I had recently. When I went to see what challenge Pals Paper Arts was having this week (anything but a card), I knew this is the project I would use.

  • I started out with a white paper lunch sack that I cut down to 6".
  • I adhered Old Olive 5 1/2 x 6 1/2 card stock to the front and back of the bag. Be sure to fold down the bottom of the bag so that it can open when you are finished.
  • On the front, I layered Rich Razzleberry 5 1/4 x 6 1/4 and then Cast-a-Spell DSP 5 x 6.
  • For the bear, I used the new Build-a-Bear dies in the Stampin' Up! mini catalog. The colors for the bear are Close to Cocoa, Basic Black, Very Vanilla and Cast-a-Spell DSP for the shirt and hat band. I used some Soft Suede around the edge of the broom to make it look used.
  • The sentiment is from All Holidays and is stamped in Rich Razzleberry on Whisper White. I punch out the sentiment with the Word Window punch and layered it on two Old Olive pieces I punched out from the Word Window punch. The larger background piece is from the matchbox die and is done in Rich Razzleberry.
  • The handle is a 7 1/2 x 1 piece of Old Olive and is attached to the bag with silver brads.
  • Done!
I hope you enjoy this project and be sure to stop by to try the challenge for yourself. Thanks for visiting.
