Haunted House Treat Bag by Valerie

Valerie Mangan went to town with a paper bag and Halloween stickers, and created a spooky treat bag that's sure to please!

Valerie says, "One of my favorite parts of Halloween as a child were the houses that would give out little treat bags filled with candy. I let that memory inspire my project; a house-shaped treat bag, haunted by ghostly Peeps!"

"I built my house from a small paper bag (approximately 4 x 6") with a flat bottom. I slid a narrow cutting pad into the bag and cut out the window, which I then filled with a transparency, embellished with a sentiment sticker."

"The roof of my haunted house is a folded piece of black cardstock, layred and scalloped. The banner and the 'trick or treat' sentiment are from the We've Got Your Border - Halloween sheet. The Happy Haunting sticker seemed only appropriate!"
