Halloween Gift Bag

Hey, everyone! Roree here with another Make It! Monday project. Today I am sharing a gift bag I created for Halloween using corrugated cardboard, a gesso-painted patterned paper, and embellishments.

First I started with a piece of cardboard I cut from an old mailing box. I cut it to 4 x 5″ so that it would fit the front of my gift bag.

I peeled back one of the covers to reveal the corrugation on the inside of the cardboard.

I used a sanding block to clean up the corrugated cardboard.

For the moon, I cut out a 4″ circle from patterned paper. But instead of using white cardstock, I decided to use a patterned paper. I really liked the chevron pattern on this patterned paper, but I thought it would be too busy. So, I painted the patterned paper with White Gesso from The Crafter’s Workshop.

I painted it just enough to lose the orange but still see a hint of the chevron pattern.

After the paper dried, I adhered it to the cardboard panel and decorated it with embellishments from October Afternoon‘s Witch Hazel collection.

I then adhered the finished panel to my bag.

I hope you enjoyed today’s Make It! Monday project. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a Happy Halloween!

    Good Morning Roree,
    How very cute and creative. I always thought I should buy a scrimper but you changed my mind.
    Thank you
