Trick or Treat bag with video tutorial

Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about Treat Bag/Box.

It's so fun to make a Halloween treat bag. I used an old paper bag I had lying around. I've painted the sides and edges black with Black Soot Distress Paint. And two sheets of the Materialize Paper Pack I used for the front and back of the bag.

The Hocus Pocus die cuts (thanks Cathie!) are perfect to dress up this treat bag. The cat I've colored with Black Soot Distress Ink and Black Soot Distress Crayon. Hat I have worked with Fresh Lime Dylusions Paint  and given depth with the Black Soot Distress Crayon.
The bat I started Hickory Smoke Distress Crayon and finished with Black Soot Distress Crayon.


To blend in the green hat into the background, I've applied Fresh Lime Dylusions Paint in some places with my fingers. The Gearhead die cuts (thanks again, Cathie!) I gave a gold effect with Bronzer Color Shine Spray. And some extra depth with Black Soot Distress Crayon.
