In honor of the Halloween Rejuvenation Challenge the designers at Graphic 45 are going to "treat" you to a fun design team blog hop all this week!
Each day you'll see a sneak peek of a fantastic Graphic 45 trick-or-treat bag designed by the design team members. Make sure you hop along each day, September 26-30! Today you will visit:
Gloria Stengel - YOU ARE HERE!
Edited to add: I will draw ONE winner from my comments to win my card, shown below, and a small prize pack - to help you make your own bag! (Sorry the treat bag is the property of Graphic 45 and not up for grabs!) I will draw the winner on Monday, October 3. Leave a comment to win!
Here is my treat bag, which I originally created for Summer 2011 CHA. Each team member created a bag, and Graphic 45 had them all displayed in their booth at CHA. I am so happy that we get to show them to you this week as part of this FUN blog hop! I think you will be amazed at how creative the team was with simple, brown paper bags!
I went with a traditional black and purple scheme, my favorite Halloween colors!
I covered the bag with Magic of Oz paper, and then created a flap using the Spellbinders™ Grand Calibur and LF-161 Grand Labels die templates.
I covered the sides of the bag with images of the witch, in more yummy purple. This is Wicked! paper.
The tag is made using Spellbinders die template S4-318 Fleur De Lis Squares. I love how the edge has a Gothic look to it when cut from black cardstock.
The best part of the bag is my house...which fell on the witch! I covered a chipboard house with paper, then accented it with Imaginarium Designs chipboard, a Graphic45 metal tag and chipboard, and a bingo number. I witch must live at #31, right?! I fussy cut the witch feet out of the paper and stuck them under the house. Wicked funny!
I also created a matching card:
I love the Graphic 45 stamps! This witch is so fun to color. I sat one day and colored a bunch just to use on various projects!
I used some lace, flowers, and pins to keep the vintage look alive!
