WeR Halloween Gift Bag w/ HA Embossed Cat Tag & PaintBrush Broom

Got creative on this Halloween Gift Bag & goodies. 

Used WeR Gift Bag Punch Board to make the gift bag. Made the bag Medium size. Made the handle using strips of black & orange. Embossed the orange strip with a Tim Holtz embossing folder for the word 'HALLOWEEN.' Attached handle with 2 black brads.

Heat embossed a Hero Arts cat stamp with Zing metallic pewter embossing powder. Stamped HA sentiment. Cut the sentiment tag out with a Spellbinders die. 

Made a witch's broom using a foam paint brush, the kind that Michaels sold for 5 cents each at the Grand Opening I went to last mth. Used Martha Stewart Fringe Scissors to cut the black cardstock for the broom, wrapped it around the foam brush. Added ribbon.

Added candy.
