Tonight I made about 20 of these bags using a nestabilities label die for the bag tag, M & S chocolate ghosts, Poundland 3D stickers and a bit of halloween table confetti for extra bling.
I’m not that thrilled with the way these boxes turned out. I am not too sure if they are embellished a bit too much.
But, there again, they are for children, and as far as they are concerned, the more ghosties and ghoulies the better.
The boxes are made using the Sizzix Bigz XL Shaker Box die. This die is the main reason I sold my Cuttlebug and bought a Bigshot. When I saw it demonstrated at the NEC I just had to have it!
I’ve outlined the boxes free hand - (not to carefully, with shaky lines and dots) and added metallic confetti stars here and there to complete the effect.
The sweetie mice are from Ikea.
