31 Days of Halloween - Day 9

This blog post contains goodies I received for free from some of my favorite crafting companies.

Hey there everyone! I'm back this week with another project in the 31 Days of Halloween Hop with Stampendous

Last week I used this stamp set to create a background card with a hint of Halloween -- check it out here. It was so subtle if you didn't read between the roses you wouldn't know it was a Halloween themed card! Hint - this set can be used any time of the year!

This week I have a Stampendous Sugar Skull treat bag to share! I'm also using Whisker Graphics products from my wonderful stash that was given to the Stampendous design team on our last collaboration with them (here and here).

Once I was done putting together the sugar skull focal piece I did giggle a bit as it reminded me of a Shakespearean ruff, so I affectionately call this a Spookespeare Treat Bag!

Hop along with Stampendous today for more inspiration!

Here's how I made this project!

Supplies: (Links provided are affiliate links with Amazon, they send a few pennies my way at no cost to you. Some company links are provided as a non-affiliate option.)

  1. Stamp with black in onto Mixed Media White Paper the skull and on lime cardstock with black ink a ribbon banner and sentiment. Die cut with coordinating dies and color.

Add glitter around the outer edge with liquid glue and lavender glitter from the Spring Micro Glitter Kit.
  3. Glue the sugar skull to the rosette and glue onto treat bag. Glue on the lime banner.
  4. Cut a lime cardstock to fit inside the bag about 2-5/8 x 4 inches and attach fringed lime tissue paper to the back of it, cover with more lime cardstock if desired.
  5. Wrap with black licorice twine and tie in a bow.
  6. Add Dot Sparklers around rosette.
  7. Fill with goodies and enjoy!

  1. Awesome treat-bag, and so pretty!

  2. Love Spookespeare treat bag.
    The ruff at the top is a fun
    idea. I guess I didn't really
    read the wording on your
    roses card - just added what
    I thought should be there.
    Clever hidden gem.
    thanks for sharing.
