Trick or Treat! - Suzanne's 3 boxes, 3 bags, 3 cards and 3 tags

Hello Crafty Friends!
The spooky fun continues!
Today Suzanne is getting ready for me to knock on her door and say "Trick or Treat!"

The spooktacular October 'trick or treat' kit from Aunty Vera Scrap and Craft is so much fun to create with.  I've been having a HOOT of a time playing with the wonderful patterned papers and matching ephemera pack from My minds eye, the scarecrow die from Tim Holtz and the Raven Background stamp from Stampendous.

For this project I made 3 boxes, 3 bags, 3 cards and 3 tags

3 boxes 

The boxes have all been cut using a die from my stash and the beautiful 'trick or treat' patterned papers from My Minds Eye.

Fold all the crease lines and assemble the boxes

The three assembled boxes

There were three small tags in the ephemera pack so I used these to go with my boxes

They fit beautifully inside the box between the handles

I then added some stickers I had picked up at a de-stash to the front of each box.  They are the perfect size to add a few treats to.

3 Bags

 The three bags I made are just simple small white treat bags.  I used some orange tissue paper and the raven background stamp from Stampendous and a few of my own stamps to stamp on the paper and then mod podge this onto the white bags.  

The beautiful raven stamp and some orange tissue paper

I stamped a raven for the front of each bag and used my other stamps for the back
Below you can see the front and back panel of tissue paper for each bag

I used mod podge to adhere the tissue to the paper bag.  It is important to use the correct ink if you are going to use mod podge to adhere it to the bag.  I used Black Ranger Archival ink.

The tissue paper needs to be trimmed all around.  Be careful not to cut the bag.

3 Cards

 The three cards that I made were all fun to make.  The first card I made was a shaker card.  I used some black glitter paper for the frame of the shaker and purple glitter paper for the background of the shaker.

 I used some of the patterned papers for the background of the card

The ephemera pack from My Minds Eye included a witch that I used inside the shaker.

I die cut many spiders and covered them with kindy glitz to go inside the shaker

Number 1 card finished.

The second card features the scarecrow die from the October kit

I die cut the grass out of green and placed it on top of the other die cut

I cut out a small circle and placed it on the top of the card and inked all around it with dusty concord distress ink to form the moon

 I placed a die cut of a graveyard from my stash onto the bottom of the card

I cut another hill for the front to give some dimension

I added a tree behind the gravestones and then used foam tape on the scarecrow to give him some dimension

I also added a ghost, a jack-o-lantern and the birds

 I placed this on a piece of the patterned paper and then a black card base.

 I used distress ink for the front of the third card

 I cut the white border off of the haunted house from the ephemera pack 

I die cut the graveyard, tree and bat to add to the card 

I added all of these pieces to the card front and a sentiment from the ephemera pack.  I placed the card front onto a piece of patterned paper and then a purple card base 

Here are the three finished cards

3 tags

The first tag is a large one so that I could use the scarecrow die on the front. I used a black tag background and some of the patterned paper on the front 

I die cut the scarecrow and used my crazy bird stamps and dies to add two birds and a jack-o-lantern to the tag.  The sentiment is from the ephemera pack in the October kit

I also cut the graveyard to add to the tag

and used the trimmings from the October kit to finish it off. 

 Tag number two is a small tag and features a jack-o-lantern that I had in my stash that I have added a witches hat to and placed it on one of the patterned papers.

 Tag number 3 features one of the witches from one of the patterned papers and I cut the words 'trick or treat' from the ephemera pack to use as the sentiment.

On all three tags I have used the trimming from Tim Holtz

This tag above also has some of the black bird washi from the October kit on the bottom

 I hope you enjoyed having a look at my Halloween projects.  Here are some photos of them all together
