Happy Halloween

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Hello all my crafty friends! I hope your all having a great week!
 It's hard to believe we are closing in on October, this year has gone fast!
 I have another Halloween project to share with you and then ....I will be working over the weekend trying to get ready for
Winter Stamp Release Party that will begin on Monday!!! Yippee! 
Trust are gonna LOVE the new product!

So, for today I have made a fun paper sack Halloween Treat holder. I started with a lunch bag, folder it and adhered the sides down. I then cut Halloween pattern papers, inked the edges with TH spiced marmalade and then sewn in place using my sewing machine:)
I cut a black panel and used a MS web punch for a cute border, stamped and heat embossed the sentiment which is from My Craft Spot's Spooky Treats stamp set. I also found this cute little clothespin that I thought needed a home:) Cute, ha? 
I then wrapped on some twine from my stash and added the cute tag. The tag is from the Jar Basics Metal Die set and the sentiment is from the Spooky Treat stamp set.
The jar is from the Jar Basics Metal Die set, stamped with the coordinating Jar Basics stamp set. I added some distressing ink, some zig zag stitching with my sewing machine and stamped on the little spiders with the Jar Full of Halloween stamp set. 
I stamped on the sentiment with the Spooky Treats stamp set and popped it on the doily and scallop from the Tiny Doilies Metal Die set. 
I also enclosed a couple pull outs-one for adding a message to which has a fun skeleton on the front of it. It was cut at 4 " from the Artiste cartridge and the skeleton at at 3".
The tag is cut at 3 3/4 also from the Artiste cartridge, the sentiment from the Best Witches to You stamp set. The chevron ribbon, twine and skittles from my stash.
Thank so much for stopping!! Hope you enjoyed my project today:)
