Trick or Treat

Welcome back!!!

It's Barbara here with my Tuesday...... er, Wednesday post. I usually post on the first Tuesday of each month but yesterday was the 1st of the month , which  is the beginning of the monthly challenge, so I postponed my post til today. October's theme for the design team is Anything but a Card...... so I want to show you a cute little Trick or Treat bag I made for my post this month..

I used a black gift bag that I picked up from Michael's and decorated it. I have a die that cuts out 3 different skylines and I decided a nighttime skyline would be a fun bag front. Recently I received a spider web die and added that to the scene. A vellum full moon adds to the early evening scene. And, I couldn't resist adding that spider by the web.

I added a single loop bow to this bag. 
This bow is a basic bow, maybe a little less frilly than my ususal bows,
 but none the less it is the perfect accent to this bag.

Just a reminder,

Craft-Dee BowZ is having a Halloween Blog Hop October 10-11. We hope that you will take a few minutes and join us for a fun time with inspiration for your Halloween projects. We have a small team so it won't take you very long to go to all the designers blogs.You could be the winner of the next give away of a Craft-Dee BowZ tool.

See you on October 10th at the hop.

Can I just say -- hmmm, how do I put this? -- WOW!!!!!!! This is awesome, Barb. And the simple double loop bow sets it off to perfection. Love it!

What a great bow!! I will have to try this. It's perfect, Barbara, and a really adorable gift bag, though many a little girl would love to use this on the big night, even if it is a gift bag!!!! :-)
