Halloween Gift Bags.

At the weekend I made a couple of little Halloween gift bags for Poppy and Oliver. I don't think they're really old enough for Halloween but I'm sure they'll like the chocolate buttons inside. I got the measurements from Splitcoast Stampers and they're really easy to make. I might even make more for Christmas.

I won some Halloween stuff from Lols a while ago  - thanks Lols you know how much I love House Mouse! My prize was the House Mouse stamp plus orange paper, black paper, ribbons, velvet brads and spooky felt shapes. I've just kept this quite simple as Poppy is nearly three and Oliver 11months so probably the sweeties are the main attraction.

One of the bags is made with a House Mouse image and the other with  Penny Black image. I love both images.

I used :-
Images :- House Mouse and Penny Black.
Sentiment :- Penny Black.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Martha Stewart punch.

I've found some Halloween challenges I'd like to enter :-
Simon Says Stamp :- Halloween.
Easy Craft Projects :- Halloween.
Fussy and Fancy :- Halloween.
Everybody Art :- Halloween.
Cupcake :- Scary Creatures.

Just a quick post as I need to get a start made on some DT work as I'm off babysitting at the end of the week and I don't think crafting and grandchildren mix very well. I'm hoping to get some commenting done and visiting my favourite blogs.

Thanks for looking and if you feel like leaving a quick comment that would be really nice.
