Halloween Treat Bag

Happy Saturday everyone!  Today I'm sharing a treat bag that I am going to enter into the Monday Challenge #21 over at My Craft Spot (make a gift bag, box, or any other container), the Simply Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky (make any party or favor type), and The Paper Variety Thread Challenge.  I recently bought the Mini Monsters Cartridge that I've been really wanting and thought this would be a great time to make something from it.  I also recently bought Prismacolor Watercolor Colored Pencils and used them to color in the candy corn on the tag.  Thanks for looking and have a great rest of the weekend! :)

Materials Used:
  • Mini Monsters Cricut Cartridge
  • Prismacolor Watercolor Colored Pencils
  • Studio G Ink and Halloween Stamp
  • K & Company Halloween Pack
  • White Gelly Roll Pen
  • Twine
