August Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!



It's that time again at Papertrey Ink! Time for the monthly blog hop! For the month of August, we are encouraged to turn a plain old brown paper lunch bag into a papercrafting work of art. For this challenge, I made a halloween treat holder using cardstock and a lunch bag. These are super fun to make, and could be used to hold a bunch of different fun things! Obviously nothing big or bulky will fit (not with the dimensions that I used anyway), but there are still tons of possibilities! How about using one as a gift card holder? Or maybe to hold a pack of baseball cards for a little guy? Or some cute hair bows for a little girl? A mini bag of microwave popcorn? Some Silly Bands? FUN! :)

This has been on my "to-try" list for awhile now. I came across this video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56tgRKEw5Dg

I used one of my favorite images from the Tiny Treats Halloween set from PTI. Isn't he SO cute?!?!

Here is the outside all folded up:



And here is a look inside... a pack of gum fits perfectly...





Supplies:
Stamps: PTI Tiny Treats Halloween, PTI Polka Dot Basics
Cardstock: PTI Stampers Select White, PTI Summer Sunrise
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, PTI New Leaf
Copics: YG11, YG17, RV10, YR12, T1, T6
Other: PTI Mat Stack 4 Die
