Spooky Treats For You Paper Bag Purse

Hi, everyone!
So glad you are here today, 
because I have a fun Halloween treat bag idea 
to share with you!

How about a cute Halloween Treat Bag PURSE?!!

Isn't it darling?

There is a paper bag for the "purse" part.... 

Too Cute By Jessica - Don't Be A Scaredy Cat - Print 'n Cut

Silhouette ID# 61252 - Simple Pumpkin

Pattern papers from stash

Orange Tulle for handle

I overlapped the kitty and the center pumpkin on the flap.

Small magnets were used to "snap" the purse closed.

Here's a close-up of the magnets:

And look at all those goodies inside!
You could even put baked goods in here
since the paper bag is pretty sturdy and strong.

You can buy this stamp set HERE

I love it!
You can make these for any occasion:
Get Well - include tea, cough drops, tissues, chicken soup...
Happy Birthday - stick a cupcake in there!
Christmas - small gifts
Valentines - heart shaped cookies
and on, and on, and on....

Here's the video I watched to learn how to do this:
(NOTE: This is NOT my video! I just found it on YouTube.)

Enjoy your day,
