Halloween treat bags - Larissa

Halloween treat bags - Larissa


Goodmorning, I am Larissa from Car-d-elicious and today I am posting a new project on the blog from Gerda Steiner designs. This time I made 3 halloween treats bags.I made the bags from white cardstock with the Thinlits treat bag 663096 from Sizzix and decorated them all.


I used the same image on all the treat bags. I have used the sweet Peeking pumkin kitty from Gerda Steiner designs. The only difference that I decorated them all in a different way and I also coloured each cat with a different colouring medium.


For the first treat bag I coloured the Peeking pumkin kitty from Gerda Steiner designs with my Caran d'ache Museum aquarelle pencils. I stamped the image first met black ink and then I embossed it with clear embossingpowder. I have fussy cut the image.


On a piece of design paper from the Black and white dots paper pack from My favorite things I used the Distresser on the edges of the paper. Then I tied white ribbon around it and glued everything on the treat bag. I used foamtape to adhere the image on the treat bag. 


For the second bag I decided to colour the Peeking pumkin kitty from Gerda Steiner designs with the Zig clean colour real brush markers. I really love the bright colours! 


I have glued a strip design paper from the Black and white stripes paper pack from My favorite things on the treat bag. I have die-cut the orange cardstock with the upper edge from the Thinlits treat bag 663096 from Sizzix. I have die-cut the word BOO from orange cardstock with the Mini alpha number & dies from CC designs (retired) and glues those letters next to the image.



On the last bag I coloured the Peeking pumkin kitty from Gerda Steiner designs with the Altenew watcolour 36 pan set. I have glued design paper from the Designer sheet mega pack Tartan bright colours from Card deco on the bag. I stamped a sentiment from the set Too cute to spook from Reverse confetti on orange cardstock and then I have die-cut it with the Flag it die collection from Clearly besotted stamps. I glued the banner with foamtape on the bag.


I have put a little bag with halloween candy from Haribo in every treat bag.
