31 Days of Halloween - Day 19

Hello bloggers! We're well into the Smeared Ink 31 days of Halloween Blog Challenge and if you're working your way around in order, you've arrived from Sarah’s blog.  If you're lost, keep calm and get your bearings using the blog roll over there on the right.

This treat bag is made using Stampin’ Up! cotton paper in Cucumber Crush.  Cotton paper has  has been described as – well, weird.  It’s very smooth and lightweight and you’d think it would be quite delicate and translucent.  In fact, it’s surprisingly robust. 

The bag is just big enough to hold a small treat - mmm...chocolate buttons....

I cut the bag using the SU mini treat bag die (but it wouldn't be too hard to make something similar with a score board and a craft trimmer.)   The eyes are punched circles of whisper white and basic black and I cut Frankie’s fringe (basic black again) with my fringe scissors. His eyelids are a punched circle of Cucumber Crush card cut into halves.

The treat holder inside is just a piece of Cucumber Crush card, cut with a Lots of Labels framelit (I do love this shape, it’s so elegant) and stamped with the “Boo” from the Cheer all Year set using – guess what ? – Cucumber Crush ink.
Apart from that. I just drew his features with a fine marker and he’s ready for Trick or Treating! 

So now, it's on to Lisa F’s blog to continue the hop.  I'll be back here tomorrow - see you then!

Crafty Hugs,

Keren
