Well eventually I think my life might calm down
from all this craziness eventually.
Yes I still have family with me,
but I have escaped one Mad house (!)
and gone to look after my Grandma
for the weekend while my Parents are away.
Aww I love her to bits and there is nothing that
I wouldn't do for her.
So for this weeks challenge I had to get it all
finished quick sharpish.
I went to my weekly card class,
yes.. with my suitcase in tow (haha)
then jumped staright on the train.
For all you die hard crafters out there,
you will understand the need
for crafting before all else.
Anyways to get on,
this weeks Theme at Glitter n Sparkle is:-
This week I decided because it was so close
and the Theme is Halloween
I would make a cute little
Trick or Treat bag.
To start off with I used an empty ear-bud carton.
First of all I cut a strip of Plain Black Card
and on top of that I layered a nice
Red String Ribbon (my stash),
with double-sided sticky tape.
I then bent it over and Glued it into place
(using UHU Glue),
to make the handle of my Bag.
I then cut a length off an A4 piece of
Shiny Red Paper (my stash),
slightly wider than the container
and again glued it to the inside.
I then turned the over hang over the top
and glued into place.
Next using a Plain Red Card,
I cut a length from A4,
the same width as the container
and glued that around the outside,
(making sure that it covered the
overhang from the inside).
Using an X-Cut Bloom die-cut
on the same Plain Red Card,
I chose one slightly bigger than the bottom
of the container and glued into place.
Using the Sizzix Circle #2,
I die-cut out a circle to fit inside the container
from Pearl Black Paper (Ross Paper).
Then using 2 of the Sizzix Circle die cuts together
I die-cut out a circle rim to go
on the top of the container,
(also in the Pearl Black Paper).
To use the Digi Image I had so much fun.
The name gave me an idea that I just had to do.
So to start with
I coloured it in using my Promarker Pens.
Then I cut out the Image and
backed it onto some more of
my Plain Black Card.
I then Decoupage it up on the Body and the star,
But the Head I had to make special,
so I set it with a Mini Card Spring
( Docraft Papermania),
and now it "Bobbles" about.
And to finish it all off,
I added some Holographic Gold Glitter
to the Star and Swirl,
some Holographic Silver Glitter
to the Trident,
some Red Glitter
to his Cape and Horns,
and some Black Glitter
to his shoes, hair and other highlights.
(The chocolates I added and had to fight hard to keep, just so I could take a picture.)
I'd like to enter this in the following challenges :-
