Today I'll be walking you through how I made the bag topper. The card I made also uses the same techniques and supplies as the topper, with the exception of the diagonal striped background, which is embossed with Glow in the Dark Embossing Powder by WOW. Wow is right! It really glows in the dark!
The colors I'm using on today's projects were inspired by this Sea Coral Glitter Sequin Mix. While it's not normally a Halloween mix I thought it still worked well with the holiday. Plus I'm so in love with these glitter sequins right now I couldn't resist!
Bag toppers are the perfect way to dress up a Halloween treat, and this one is very easy to make. I first started by cutting the largest of the Stitched Rectangle Dies from Kat's collection. The shorter side of the rectangle is the perfect width to fit a standard sized cello treat bag.
I folded the rectangle in half and used the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Border Die to cut through both layers, creating a decorative edge along the bottom.
Next, I cut two of the witches skirts using black cardstock. I used one for the front, and the other to finish off the back. Before adhering them together I sandwiched some double sided adhesive between the two layers to give the inlaid stripes on the stockings something to stick to.
Next, I used the Witches Skirt Die to cut some orange glitter cardstock. I trimmed away the skirt and buckle pieces and adhered them to the front of my main piece. The way this die is designed makes it easy to know right where to clip those pieces apart.
After adding the glitter pieces to my witch, I attached it to my scalloped topper. I finished it off by adding some bakers twine, along with the word dies that came with the set. I filled the bag with candy and my project was complete. What a fun treat to give to your favorite little goblins on Halloween. I hope you enjoyed today's project showcasing the Witches Skirt Die by Cheery Lynn Designs. Happy Halloween!
