Jack O' Lantern Treat Bag

Wow two posts in a week I'm on a roll! I just love Halloween, I won't be able to stop myself from making creepy crawly creations! As I mentioned in my previous post, this one's all about yummy treats! I made this super simple Jacko treat bag for my guests that are attending our small Halloween/Davian's birthday party, I still have a couple more to make!

Now, if you do not have a diecutting machine to cut your bag shape you can always look it up online, I found this great site with a nice variety of printable templates you can either print directly onto your cardstock or trace and then cut manually.

I'm trying to make these as simple as it gets given the number of guests I'll be having over, but you can always embellish to your hearts content! These cool mini alphabet stickers are all the rave these days, check 'em out over at the store they're from My Little Shoebox!

The evil looking pumpkin was a cut taken from my Quickutz library, and what I did was cut it twice first in black heavy weight cardstock from American Crafts and then again a second time with an orange sheet from their Earth Tones pack.

I then layered and then glued the whole piece onto my bag with pop dots. I finished it off by adding a shadowed-like effect to my diecut by coloring it in using various markers.

Hope you've enjoyed today's project, so fun and easy even the wee ones can do it! Until next time happy crafting!
