31 Nights of Halloween - Night 28

Hello everyone!  I hope it's a Happy Monday!!!

Sue here today with a spook-tacular project to play along with the wonderful 31 Nights of Halloween!  This is the best event of the year!  There are heaps of fa-boo-lous Halloween inspiration and prizes to be won!  So - stick around until the end of this post to see how you can enter!

I have used one of my favourite images Goth Girl Clear Stamps by Deb Davis (Amped2Stamp) and the boo-tiful new paper pack Hocus Pocus.

I thought it would be fun to make a little treat bag!  Here are some quick instructions.

Create a 10cm x 30cm strip of black card and score and fold it horizontally at 13cm and 17 cm.

on both ends - make a mark on each side 8cm up from the fold and a mark halfway across the top at 5cm.

Cut the ends into points, punch a hole and round them slightly.  Cut a piece of designer paper to fit to the outside of the box when folded, as shown below.

Create a 13cm x 13cm rectangle of black card and cut it in half diagonally making two triangles.  Score the triangles 1cm in from each edge.  Cut a piece of designer paper the same size and then trim it to fit inside the triangles.

Fix the longest scored edge of the triangles to the back of the stripey panel.

Then fix them across the front of the panel with a row of glue dots along the bottom edge.

So - I'm a muppet because I completely forgot to take a pic of the triangles folded and fixed across the front of the stripey panel but hopefully you can get the idea from pic of the finished treat bag!  Please feel free to contact me if you want me to explain further!

I decorated the bag with strip of black card, a skull die cut from the Dracula's Coffin Die Set and a sentiment from the Goth Girl stamp set stamped and heat embossed onto a Tombstone Tag Die.

I stamped and cut out Goth Girl (with my Scan n Cut) and coloured her with Copics:
Skin E04, E21, E00, E000
Hair BV04, N4, N6, N8 100
Clothes V17, V15, V12, R17, RVV, G28, G24, G21

Finally I fixed her to the finished gift bag!  The 'gift' is candy corn in a cello bag which is fixed to the back panel of the bag with Glue Dots!  I have to say that sentiment is just PERFECT and sums me up most days!!! (:

  1. I'm going with my first ever scary movie (keep us older folks in mind) and it was called "The Birds". It scared the bejeebers out of us kids. Oh it was deliciously frightful back then. It's probably rate PG now. [Bunny]`

  2. Goth Girl is too funny! Love your treat bag!
    Scariest movie ever for me... Psycho. It traumatized me! Still gives me the creeps!

  3. delightful project - thanks for the tutorial.
    I don't know about you but clowns really scare me so I'll have to say 'It' is the scariest movie for me - arrgh!!

  4. I LOVE the fancy folds. And the SCARIEST.... hmmm... I don't watch Scary movies but I have heard the SAW series is terrifying! And I see commercials for this new one called Countdown which looks horrific

  5. This is so cute! I love her expression and that great sentiment. :)

    The Exorcist scared me so bad the first time I tried to watch it in a theater that I ended up leaving soon after it began. It was several years later that I forced myself to sit and watch the entire thing. To this day, just the music can give me goosebumps.

  6. The Shining was scariest for me because it was about a regular family, and what can potentially happen. The man going after his family to MURDER THEM was very scary. They kept trying to get away, like in a nightmare, but here he is!! I am not scared of monsters, ghost or other silly stuff like that. Those things can't happen. Horrible things that really CAN happen scare me.

  7. BOO-tiful gift bag!
    Thank you for sharing your SPOOK-tacular tutorial :)
    "The Birds" and "Psycho" are definitely scary, no matter how many times you watch. I confess, the trailers for "It" were too scary for me, so I haven't watched it, yet. Some that always creep me out, but I still watch them each time they screen, are Pet Sematary (I know the spelling is off but so is the film...), Ghost Ship and The Fog, nothing like a good scare to get the adrenalin flowing and a good twist to keep you guessing.

  8. I don't watch horror movies.
    I think the scariest I have
    seen is The Shining.

  9. Oh wow! Your project is totally awesome! Thanks for your step by step tutorial!!!
    I'm 37 y.o. and when I was very young with my brother saw Alien.... OH MY GOD!!!

  10. Love this, Sue! Beautiful coloring and fun design!

  11. This is just gorgeous and so fun!! I will have to earmark this
    to make some for next year's trick or treaters.
    I have always had the bejeebers scared out of me whenever I
    watch the original 'Halloween'. That dude is very scary!!!
    And I 2nd Arianna above … 'Alien' is also just as scary!

  12. Love this cute project...especially with those papers. Jeepers Creepers is pretty scary.

  13. Does it get any scarier than the original Halloween? For more current fare, check out "As Above, So Below". Sooooo creepy! Another scary one is Jeruzalem. By the way, this card is adorbs! Terri Burson

  14. Absolutely the most creative card I've seen this season! Saving your instructions!

  15. Replies
    1. Didn't see question there..
      Scary movie for me is saw.

  16. this is great, such clever design, I love it.
    I would choose The Shining, uffff ...

  17. I really like how you did the step by step photos to go along with the directions! So helpful for my old mind! She is such a cute and ditzy looking young goth gal! Great colors too! Scariest movie ever...The Amityville Horror! I did not like the blood dripping down the walls or the flies.... UGGGH! But the Shinning is pretty close to with the dead lady in the tub and then the twins and little Danny saying REDRUM! Happy Halloween!

  18. This is just the coolest project Sue and great step-by-step too! The Exorcist, The Shinning, Halloween are some of my all-time favs. When I was a kid there was a movie called Phantasm that scared the poop out of me! HAPPY HALLOWEEEEEN!
