Halloween Monster Treat Bag

You may or may not know it, but I love paper crafting! This little treat bag I'm showing you today is one I made a few years back when I was full swing into paper crafting.  I even have a paper crafting blog if you want to visit it.  Link to the right.
Isn't this a cute monster?  My sweet friend Regina Easter over at The Cutting Cafe' created this little guy for a fun set of digi stamps called A Bunch of Monsters.  If you haven't visited her online store, hurry on over and tell her I sent you!
This little treat bag is made using an old book page and I've added the little one eyed monster for a perfect Halloween treat bag!  I printed him onto some fun Halloween paper and cut him out with scissors.

To make the treat bag:
Using one page from your old book (my page measures 6x9), trace your scalloped edge using a template or freehand it then cut it out.  Lay the page out flat on the table long ways and bring both sides toward the middle evenly. Crease the sides flat and then turn up the bottom edge about 1/4 of an inch. Carefully glue the center back seam and the bottom edge.  This creates your goodie bag.  Decorate and fill!  I got my idea HERE.....Pinterest of course!
This is one of the sentiments in the set and of course its perfect for this cute little one eyed monster.  I printed it onto my printed paper and then cut it out with my oval shaped Nesties.  The scalloped oval is cut out of thin cork.
I printed two of my monsters.  One on the printed Halloween paper and one on plain white card stock.  I cut out the eye and the mouth and colored the tongue with one of my dark orange Copic markers.  I used foam tape to pop up the eye and mouth.  He's so stinkin' cute!
I used a few Halloween charms I had in my stash to decorate the white Hemp Cord I tied around the bottom of the treat bag 3 times.
I also had the shredded paper in my stash and added that to keep the candies hidden until that special someone looks inside!

It doesn't have to be done all at once.  It is a slow process in the works! C-ya next time!
