And now I want to share with you MY ghoulish surprises!
First up is this cute treat bag! I found this paper mache "box" as it was called on the tag in the Christmas aisle in Hobby Lobby. I used the SUPER fun Fancy Pants Halloween paper from the Paper Popsicles store and some Mod Podge to cover the "box". I then sanded the edges and used a combo of Orange Marmalade and Black Soot Distress Ink to ink the edges. The border across the top is actually the Fancy Pants border sticker also available in the Paper Popsicles store! Next I used this SUPER fun digital ghost image by Cheeky Radish and enlarged him to the size of a piece of 8.5" x 11.5" paper. (With a little turning of the image you can get him this large) I then cut a piece of My Mind's Eye Halloween paper to 8.5" x 12" and printed the ghost directly onto the paper. I cut the ghost out, outlined his mouth and eyes with a black glaze pen, and when the ink was dry lightly sprayed the ghost with Pearl Glimmer Mist to give him a little sparkle. Once the ghost was dried I attached him to the front of the "box" and raised the arms with 2-3 foam squares stacked on top of each other. I added 1 foam square under the tail and curled the end of his tail around a pencil to make it pop off the "box".
Here is a close to see a little of the sparkle
And since Hallowen is one of my favorite holidays I have one more quick and simple project for you today! For this treat bucket I purchased the tin Halloween pail in the dollar section of Target. I used my trusty Zip Dry and added Creative Cafe ric rac to the top and bottom of the pail as well as on the handle. I then used cute digital images from Cheeky Radish for the front embellishments that I colored with Copic markers and attached with pop dots. And there you have it a quick simple pail to fill with some yummy treats and give to your favorite trick or treaters!
