Today I have a really cute and fun project showing you how to dress up a plain old lunch sack into an adorable Halloween treat bag. I have added some yummy popcorn pumpkins that I made with marshmellows, butter, peanuts and candy corn. Yum Yum!
For this project I used the following supplies
- lunch sack 10 1/2 x 5 1/4 x 3 1/4
- Brew HA HA digital kit by Jan Hosford
- double sided tape
- black Stazon ink
- transparency sheet
- Sizzix Big Kick
- Nestabilities scallop rectangles
- 7 x 5 1/4 cardstock
- Stampin’ Up! stamp set Web Wishes
- Studio G clear stamp set
- HP Premium Presentation Paper
I first measured my sack and created specific sizes to fit it on the front and flap of the sack. I printed them out on HP Premium Presentation Paper and cut them out. To create a window in the sack I used my Sizzix and the scalloped rectangle nestability.
Then I cut a rectangle in the lunch sack slightly larger than the black star paper.
Now cut out a piece of transparency sheet slightly larger than the rectangle in the lunch sack. Use Stazon ink to stamp image on transparency and apply double sided tape on to the transparency and tape to inside of bag.
Sponge edges of remaining paper with ink. Fold long strip of paper, sew and glue to sack. Cut out chipboard and glue paper. Stamp image on smaller paper and glue to chipboard. Trace the shape of the clothespin on wrong side of paper and cut out, stamp and glue to clothespin. Add ribbon to top of clothespin. Score flap of sack at 1 inch and 2 inches. Then glue papers to flap and add rhinestones and clothespin to top of sack.
To make a platform for your treats in the sack score a 7 x 5 1/4 piece of card stock at 1 inch on all sides. Slit on the score lines on both sides and glue according to the pictures below.
Insert to inside of your treat bag and add some yummy goodies!
