Halloween Treat Bag by Gloria

Hello, it is Gloria with you and it is my turn again on the blog! The Design Team received our quarterly boxes, which were chock full of Halloween, fall, and Christmas chippies! (Check availability at the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Store). I decided to do one more Halloween project for you, before it's too late!
What is more fun than a treat bag filled with "not so spooky" treats?! As soon as I saw the NEW Double Sided Ornaments, I knew I wanted to make a fun shaker! I was waffling between a Christmas ornament or an embellishment for Halloween, and the spooky project won!
I filled my shaker with tiny bat and spider chipboard items, spray painted black, and some Halloween sequins. (Spiders and Webs Shape Set, Spooky Shape Set)

Here is how to make the shaker ornament and treat bag.
Locate and prepare the three ornament shapes and the two plastic covers from the Double Sided Ornaments package.
 Select one large web and a small spider from the Spiders and Webs Shape Set. Select a jack-o-lantern, the Boo phrase, and two small bats from the Spooky Shape Set.
Use spray  mists to color the items. Allow the chipboard to dry.
Remove the face pieces from the jack-o-lantern. Cut a 1 1/2" circle from a scrap of black cardstock.
Glue the cardstock circle to the back of the jack-o-lantern.  
Fill one half of the plastic ornament cover with the small bat and spider shapes you prepared. Then add Halloween-themed sequins.
Assemble the ornament by stacking as follows: base piece with plastic cover inserted. Spacer ornament shape. Second base piece with plastic cover. I used glue to attach my layers together. Clamp and allow the glue to dry. 
Score a 6 1/2" x 3 1/2" black treat bag at 1/2" from the top edge. Add a panel of decorative paper, cut 6" x 3 3/8", to the front of the bag. Glue the spider web chipboard to the top left corner of the bag. Glue the assembled shaker ornament to the bag as shown. Glue the jack-o-lantern to the left edge of the shaker. Add the chipboard phrase to the lower right corner of the bag. 
Add a loopy bow made from black and orange plaid ribbon to the top of the shaker. Make two twine bows, one from black twine and one from orange. Glue both twine bows to the top of the ribbon. Add a felt button. Fill your bag with treats and fold the bag top on the score line. Close the bag with two small clothes pins, one black and one orange.

Thanks for looking!
