Altered Halloween Gift Bag

Altered a Kraft gift bag using Lawn Fawn stamps. Stamped LF the Bear in Bee costume & Candy Corn, colored & fussy cut out with scissors. Stamped LF trick or treat bag onto Kraft packaging paper and fussy cut it out. Stamped LF sentiment and cut out with a Stampin' Up punch.

For texture I used burlap that I embossed with a Honeycomb embossing folder and distressed with Tim Holtz Distress Inks & ribbon and tied on tulle & ribbon to the gift bag.

  1. Super cute, Melissa! Love that little costumed bear!

    Did I read somewhere that you are going to have a Halloween challenge on your blog? Are you giving out any details in advance? I have a few Halloween cards to make but I'd like to hold off and support your challenge if the timing works out. If it's top secret until the date, than that's fine too, I'll just go ahead with posting my cards as usual.

  2. Wow, Melissa, another cute creation! What a sweet little scene you have created. Thanks for joining us again at CRAFT Challenge! Brenda
