CottageCutz Witches Brew Lunch/Gift Bag

 It's that time of year!  What am I talking about?  Well, Halloween, of course.  Don't you love the bright colors of the season.  On this project for CottageCutz, the papers are just "screaming" color and fun "spooky" images.  Sure to "thrill" even the most "squeamish"  Trick or Treater!
 This is a decorated lunch bag with a little bow handle at the top.  Now I never had girls, but if I did, I would have used something like this for her to carry her lunch to school in on Halloween!!! lol  Better yet, I was thinking about how someday I might have a grandchild and this would be the perfect little gift bag to place some treats in to give as a gift.
 Isn't this a darling die?  It's called Potion Bottles and they were so fun to put together.  They are popped onto a panel that was created with a Martha Stewart Spider Punch around the Page.  This is actually a flap that comes over the top of the bag and has a Velcro closure.
This image is Midnight Witches Brew.  It was cut on black cardstock and black glitter is what is making it sparkle.  The little Tea Time Doily is the backdrop for that creepy spider.  And yes, I did scare myself with that spider!!!!  I don't care for spiders AT ALL.  I punched that baby out and was really intrigued by how it pops up at the legs-not so intrigued when it got tangled up with the paper and flew up when I moved.  I jumped a half mile then laughed at scaring myself with the darn thing.  We have spiders this big and bigger in the south.  I will be sure not to leave any punched ones hanging around!!!!lol
The flower was created with some black lace netting that was on hand and a recollection orange bling piece was added to the center.  The sentiment is a K&Company from my stash.  Quick and easy if you need a gift bag for someone special or want to surprise a loved one with a great lunch bag!  Thanks for visiting today.  I really appreciate it.  Here are the dies I used:

HAHa about the spider scaring you. I am sure I would have jumped a mile and screamed, too. They are the scariest things to me. I guess it is all those legs that spook me. This is the coolest bag and I love the flower you made and was thinking if the bling was red instead of orange, it would make me think of a black widow. Eeeeeeeeeek!!! Another cool project, Carol!

After just looking at your winter wonderland card and now this one, I have to say you are on a ROLL! This lunch bag is the cutest thing I've ever seen. I'd use it to give my grandson a Halloween gift! This bag is just a hoot! And that spider would freak me out too! Fantastic job!

Carol! I am never disappointed visiting your blog because there is always going to be something unusual, fantastic, and utterly imaginative revealing your dear finger magic. LOL Love the tule in black, and all your incredibly colorful additions which are contrasted with black. Your spooky lime green is a perfect complement with the white backdrop for the great witchy die cut! BEAUTIFUL LITTLE GIFT BAG, CAROL! (could you hear me exclaiming? LOL) hugs, de

I can just imagine you with a little girl - she would have so many fun things you had made! Everyone would be so jealous! This is wonderfully fun and so creative! Your mind is so amazing. You can take a lunch sack and make it look like it cost $2O! Wow! Fun stuff. Hugz - millions of them!
