I created my bag using a green lunch bag that I purchased at a local party store, added some patterned paper to the front and back of it, and a mat from the 6x6 Glitter Paper Pal Happy Haunting collection. This mat worked out perfect, because I wanted to add a Haunted house theme, and this gave me a background that was perfect for this. After adding the mat, I rummaged through my Halloween embellishment stash, and found the cute little haunted house, and all the extras from a variety of different packages. To finish it off, I added some lace on the top, and bottom of the design paper.
What's in the bag?
Inside the bag, I added this witch's boot that I made using a pattern from the Silhouette studio, and my Cameo. I added some embellishments that I had in my stash, then filled it with goodies. Some of the things I wanted to include in the bag wouldn't fit in the boot, so I just put them along the side in the bag.
The second swap for this month that I made was a Halloween tag for the "Twelve Tags of 2014" swap that is going on at LSH.
I made the base of the tag from a tag template that I had. I used solid black for the back, and the polka dot patterned paper for the front. The Happy Halloween cat piece in the middle, is from a file from the Silhouette studio, Halloween Black Cat rocker card. I only used the front part of the card, then added a few little characters that I cut out of one of the papers from the paper pack that I got the mat from for my bag. I found that this paper pack had a lot of cute little things I could use for different projects. I found the "beware" sticker on the top in a collection of other stickers I had, and added a spider brad, and ribbon to the top.
I sure hope my swap partners enjoy what I have made for them as much as I enjoyed making them.
