Luxurious Treat Bag Duo

It's a Halloween Week of sorts at 

We were asked to use the Luxe Bronze and Black papers and accents in creating our projects.
I've used a blend of the colors to make these two totally different treat bags!

To get started, you will need a 6″ X 12″ strip of your favorite Luxe paper. 
Place the piece face-down onto a score board (or use a paper trimmer); turning the 
piece vertically (lengthwise), score at 1″ and 5″. Turn the paper horizontally and score at 5.5″ and 6.5″. Fold the paper in on all of the scored marks. Cut the paper at the 5.5″ and 6.5″ marks just up to
 the vertical score lines; you will have two small flaps on each side. Fold in and glue to one of
 the longer flaps. Use a quick dry glue or strong double-sided adhesive to secure the flaps together.

For the sweet and prim Luxe jack ‘o lantern, I used a 4.25″ scalloped doily die and a 4″ round die.
 I layered the two pieces together with foam adhesive and secured to the front of the striped bag. 
His nose is simply a bronze chipboard heart that I cut into a triangle. His little grin is one of the 
black Luxe brackets from the alphabet stickers. 

The tag on the handle was made by die-cutting a 2″ circle from the Luxe black star paper
and then adding bronze sticker letters. 

Mr. Batty can be dressed up in so many ways! For the wings, I cut a design from the black
 chevron paper that measures approximately 3.5″. Next, I scored the wings at each of the points 
of the chevron pattern. The outer parts were scored up and the two inner sections were scored 
down to create a fan-folded effect. Add the wings to a paper doily with foam adhesive.

 For the body, I used a 1.5″ oval punch and a 1″ circle punch and layered them as shown. 
For the eyes, I applied two small black Luxe rubons to adhesive pearls. His nose is one of the
 punctuation symbols from the bronze letter stickers. I wanted to give him a little extra whimsy, 
so I attached a small chipboard heart to the top for his ears. 

To each bag, I glued in a white chenille stem for the handle. You can also punch small holes at each
 side and string through wire, ribbon, etc. Tie on coordinating ribbon and your unique and 
one-of-a-kind treat bags are ready to go! You’ll surely be the most remembered stop in the neighborhood!

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!

Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
