This month's theme is Halloween! I made Halloween treat bags using some bags I sewed together and Samantha’s Silhouette files.

Halloween treat bags by Daniela Dobson

Samantha Walker Supplies:
a2 card crescent closure halloween webs
border of skulls
Booti-ful Cameos JustRite Clear Stamp Set

Other Supplies:
Therm O Web Adhesive
Clearsnap and Ranger ink
The Twinery Twine
Impression Obsession tags die
Parchment paper

I made the bags out of parchment paper. I cut mine 4 1/4 x 10 inches, then I fold it in half and machine stitch the sides.

I stamped the frame in orange on one bag and a different frame in black on the other one, using Booti-ful Cameos stamp set. Just make sure the ink is dry before you continue decorating the bag.

Step 1 Daniela Dobson

I cut the border of skulls in half and resized it to 4 1/4” and adhered it to the front using 3D Foam Squares.

For the second bag I cut the bottom of a a2 card crescent closure halloween webs and used it as a border. I backed it with black cardstock.

To finish the bags I added twine and stamped a spider and “boo” on some tags. The treat bags are filled with candy corn, my favorite.
