"Poison" by Laura C.

No tricks, just treats to fill up this goody bag!

The base of the project is an apple/produce paper bag (a regular lunch bag would work if you sized things down). The "Green at Heart" collection from Basic Grey is versatile, it can be used for almost anything! It has the "Halloween" purple and green used here. The base piece of purple is 3 & 1/2" x 6 & 1/2" and the green is 4 & 1/4" x 6 & 1/2". These were inked using the inkssentials applicator and foam pads, with Tim Holtz distress inks in Peeled Paint and Dusty Concord and then adhered to the bag. The "poison" label is a new Tim Holtz texture fade embossing folder that was trimmed to 3 & 1/2" x 5 & 5/8". It was inked with the same two distress inks and the edged distressed. This "label" was adhered to a 3 & 6/8" x 5 & 7/8" piece of the purple that had been inked with dusty concord and the edge distressed. It was then centered on the green paper. The embellishment in the corner is made with a 2" x 3" piece of the green (you know the drill, inked and distressed!). I cut out white cardstock using Spellbinders labels 14, inked with both the green and purple, then (after dry!) adhere a sentiment. I used the green letters from the Green at Heart kit to spell out BOO!, applied glossy accents to that, and edged the tag in purple stickles. Once dry, I used foam dots to adhere to the small green piece I had adhered to the bag. Finishing touches....three 1/2" square pieces of green with a pearl brad centered in each (adhere with glue dot to bag) and a matching ribbon to hide the seam.

Love this great goody bag, for special treats, parties, or even just a fun decoration for Halloween!!
