Halloween Card and Treat Bag

This was a card design for our church card ministry and I decided to do a treat bag design as well. (That gave me a little more room to add spooky elements, like the spider and paper-pieced pumpkin.) I punched black paper with that Creative Memories punch that does the buckles and little squares. I cut away a section of the grid that comes out of the punch and the great thing is, the more crooked you cut, the cuter the windows are!

I love this palette for Halloween. If you are looking for spooky treat ideas, you've got to check out my friend Barb. She's concocting very creepy crafts in her Craft Cave!

We craft every month on the first Thursday from 7-9 pm and the following Friday from 1-3 pm at Joy Lutheran Church. There are always great seasonal ideas and it's fun and FREE!
