Spooky treat bags

The theme at A Gem of a Challenge this week is Spooky and each year I make some little trick or treat bags or boxes for the local ghosts and ghouls who visit on Halloween.  Last year I made pillow boxes, but this year I've made some little gift pouches to fill with treats.  After all, I wouldn't want a 'trick', right!  We have to keep these spooky visitors happy, you know!

The template for the pouch was actually a 'tea pigs' packet that I opened up, and scanned into my computer, then resized it to fit an A4 page.  I then converted it into a transparent png file so that I could insert digi papers, and some text into the various sections.  I then could print it out as a whole flat template, pre-coloured, and ready to cut, score and fold.

I then glued it together and popped on a couple of colour-coordinated embellishments; a small bow and some liquid pearls in the corner.

The image, a spooky little girlie with her trick or treat lantern, was printed separately, layered onto purple card, and stuck onto the front of the box.  Finally I've Stickled up the image panel and box edges to the max to glam it up a bit!

Hi Annette - I so love these little treat bags. Purple is one of my fave colors. I'm not sure what "tea pigs" are but, I'm guessing they are a cookie or "biscuit" as you all call them in the UK. Great project!
