trick or treat

Trick or Treat Felt Bag

Need a last minute trick or treat bag? This one is very easy to make and very cute for any little ghosts and goblins you have around. :)

Trick or Treat Felt Bag CU Assembly

The felt treat bag is very easy to assemble. I cut the felt to size. (in this case, about 5”x12”) Elmer’s Fabric Glue was used to adhere the sides together, leaving extra fabric at the top, to create a flap. Two holes were punched in the top flap and ribbon was run through and tied into a bow. I found that if I placed something heavy on top of the bag while it dried, the sides adhered much better than me holding it in my hands.

Trick or Treat Felt Bag CU Spider

I had to make my favorite spider from felt, using Spellbinders dies, and then I put him on a tag. He’s pretty easy to make, die cut an Inverted Scalloped Circle from felt and then a smaller Standard Circle from the same felt. (Remember felt is fabric, you will probably need to run it through your machine twice.) The legs are pieces of leather trim, glued inside with same Elmer’s fabric glue. And of course, everyone’s favorite crafty item-googley eyes! :)

Trick or Treat Felt Bag CU Tag

To make the tag, the spider web stamp from Hero Arts (Large Web) was heat embossed with purple embossing powder and it was covered in Black Soot Distressing Ink. Then I die cut the cardstock with Standard Tags die #2.

Sorry these Halloween projects are coming in so late. We were in MN with our families for the last 10 days. It was a wonderful time, spent with my in-laws for a few days, and then with my parent’s celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary. We had such a good time! Its strange, it still feels like we live there. It was hard to come back, as it always is. But sleeping in my bed was good! :) Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
