BOO Goodie Bags

Recently I bought the Lawn Fawn Goodie Bag die from for a treat holder for the upcoming holidays. Here are three of the Goodie Bag treat holders I made for BOO Day -- (Halloween):

For the above Goodie Bag I used Pumpkin Pie card stock. Cut out two Goodie Bag pieces to make the bag. Using a pumpkin face die I cut out scrap black card stock. Put the pumpkin face on the center of my bag front using a glue pen. For the two spider web pieces I used scrap black card stock and a glue pen. Those were made using this M Steawart spider punch:

Put the bag together using red sticky tape. Once the bag was assembled I sponged the edges of the bag, both front and back. The greeting "Treats for BOO!" is from the Stampin Up stamp set Mixed Medley. Used circle and scallop circle punches for that. Tied it onto the bag top using twine. Used a glue pen to put the two spider web pieces on the bag front.

This next Goodie Bag is purple and I used a holiday die from Cottage Cutz:

Cut out the Halloween circle die using scrap black card stock. Using purple card stock I cut out my two Goodie Bag pieces. Put the circle Halloween die cut piece on the bag front using a glue pen. For the three small bats I used a small punch from the dollar bin at the craft store. Put the bats on the bag front using a glue pen. Used red sticky tape to put the bag together. Sponged the edges, both front and back of the bag, using purple ink.

The "BOO!" is a greeting stamp from the Stampin Up Bitty Boos stamp set. Cut that out with circle and scallop circle punches and tied this onto the corner of the Goodie Bag using twine.

This third bag is more detailed:

Used Stampin Up black card stock for the Goodie Bag pieces. Once those were cut out I then used the M Stewart spider web window punch all over the page punch on the front of my Goodie Bag piece.  Here is a photo of that punch:

To make the window on the front of the Goodie Bag die cut piece I centered the punch on that piece and used painter's tape to keep it in place. Then punched it out. Since this is a 'window' I did not want any treats to fall out of the Goodie Bag so I cut a piece of clear sheet 2" x 2" square. Put that on the backside of the bag front using thin red sticky tape. For this Goodie Bag I put white paper shred in the bag so that will show the punched window pattern. This photo shows the clear sheet on the window:

Once the clear sheet was behind the window I then used red sticky tape and put the Goodie Bag together. The orange spider web paper at the bottom of the holder is not card stock -- it is one of the shelf strips from Walgreens from their last year Halloween displays that I got for free. I trimmed it to the size I wanted for the Goodie Bag. I wrapped this around the front and back of my bag keeping it on with red sticky tape.

Once that was on I used a bug punch from the dollar bin at the craft store and punched that out of foil black card stock. Put that on the spider web paper using a small glue dot. For the tied on tag I stamped the spider web stamp from the Stampin Up Mixed Medley stamp set and again using circle and scalloped circle punches I punched that out. Tie it to the top of the Goodie Bag using twine.

Here is a photo of all three BOO Goodie Bags:

These Goodie Bags will be nice because they are free standing and will hold enough candy treats for your BOO Day treats. Just fill with paper shred from the dollar store and Halloween treats. TFL and YOLO
