ABAC Sunday - 'Mummy' bag

My Anything But A Card, (ABAC),  project today is a bag using the new "Petite Purse" die for the Big Shot machine.

I've actually made quite a few little bags now as it is so easy and very addictive but the first one I wanted to share with you is my little 'Mummy' bag that I made for Halloween treats.

I used 'Naturals Ivory' card stock to cut the bag out, then ripped the off cutes and inked the edges in 'Crumb Cake' ink to give the tatty look, and adhered to the bag.  I made sure that whilst adhering the ripped pieces I didn't cover the hold for the closure part of the bag, which was very easy to do.  I also used a long ripped piece for the handle rather that use the one that gets cut out with the die, just to keep the tatty look.

I used brown card stock that I cut with the circle punch from the 'Itty Bitty shapes pack' and added the 'Googly Eyes' that you can either get separately or as part of the 'Ghoulish Googlies Designer Kit'

This was fun to do and I think it's a really cute Halloween project, and these little bags actually hold cute a bit in side, I've put 8 little chocolate "eyeballs" that I got from Waitrose inside, so plenty for own little monster.

If you want any further information on how to make these little bags or would like to buy the bits to make your own, please don't hesitate to get in contact.

Have a great day... xx
