DT post by Marlene - Ghostly Greetings Paper Sack

Hello Everyone!

This is Marlene from ScrappinCookie!

I'm here today to share with you a FUN way to package up a quick and easy Halloween Treat plus a Card. Also PERFECT for this week's My Craft Spot Monday Challenge #72 - A Treat For You! For FULL details on the challenge, please click HERE.

I started by folding a Bigger Bitty Bag in half and sewing around the edges to make a double-pocket paper sack.

I embellished the paper sack with a scallop border made with my Cricut and some of My Craft Spot's "Midnight Black" Crinkle Ribbon. I also tied some "Orange Licorice" Trendy Twine.

The small tag was made using the "Large Circle" and "Small Circle" dies from the "Tiny Doilies" Metal Dies. I then stamped the tag with the "Have a Boo-tiful Night" Sentiment from the "Best Witches" Stamp Set.

The "GHOSTLY GREETINGS PAPER SACK" was then filled with a matching card and two pieces of candy. For the card's sentiment, I used the "Stampin All Around" Stamp Set  centered with Ghost made with my Cricut. The sentiment was then layered onto the "Larger Circle" and "Scalloped Circle" from the Tiny Doilies" Metal Dies.

The candy pieces were wrapped in patterned paper and tied with some "Mandarin" and "Black" Trendy Twine - available HERE - with a tag made from My Craft Spot's "Tiny Tags" Metal Dies.

I hope you have enjoyed my "GHOSTLY GREETINGS PAPER SACK" and have inspired you to use some of the amazing My Craft Spot products and use the stamps in creative ways.
