Halloween Treat Bags

Happy Saturday friends! I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. I know I am. I have some treat bags to show you today that I created  using products from the store

These bags were a lot of fun to make. The bags I get from work. They are rejects from the stampers who stamp the brand image on them by hand.  Rather than them end up in the garbage, I take them home and use them for projects such as this! They also make fantastic banners. :) 

To color the bags, I used Shimmerz paints. I dumped a portion of my paint container in the color I wanted in a zip lock bag and added water to it. I threw the bag in the bag and closed it.  To get the bag fully colored I rolled and squeezed the baggie until my fabric bag was entirely colored. I learned this technique for coloring bags from the super sweet Kendra Sand. Go HERE for the tutorial. 

After both of my bags were covered with Shimmerz and had dried, it was time to decorate them. I used some of the MME Lost & Found Halloween Collection to decorate one of the bags and some Doodle Twine by Doodlebug for the other along with some acrylic paint, Faber Castell markers and more Shimmerz.

My ghosts were painted on by me. I rarely paint actual images, but I figured it would be hard to mess up painting ghosts.... right? :) 

I hope you've enjoyed my treat bags, and hope that you all have a Happy Halloween this year. Don't eat too much candy!!
