Haunted House Trick or Treat Bag Tag

I shop the after holiday sales and bought this craftsmart Haunted House Happy Halloween stamp at Michaels reg $1.50 for 80% off and the ribbon reg $1 for 80% off.

Made this Tag using Cricut cartridge Create a Critter 2. Heat embossed the craftsmart Haunted House Happy Halloween stamp with Recollections Blaze embossing powder. Stamped Hero Arts sentiments "BOO!" & "Happy Haunting" on tags I punched with Stampin' Up Tag punch. Distressed the Trick or Treat Bag Tag and the SU tags using Tim Holtz paper distresser. Inked the distressed edges of the HA stamped SU tags. Added ribbon to the tags and attached to Trick or Treat Bag Tag.

The photograph does not do the heat embossing justice.
