Now to my project. I made quick and simple Halloween treat bags. I used Samantha's Booti-ful Cameos stamp set (that you can win!) and the coordinating Spider Web Background stamp.
 

To make the bags I stamped three pieces of 3.25"x6" cardstock with spider web background stamp, distressed the edges and adhered them to small gift bags from Target. 


I then stamped the cameos in black ink on white cardstock, stamped the witch/pumpkin/skull in orange in the center, cut out only the inner shape of the cameos and layered them on the top of the cameo image stamped in orange.


I didn't plan to use Silhouette for this project but couldn't resist the cutest bat that comes with the free October cut file. I ungrouped the shape, selected the shape with the bats and clicked on "Release compound path". After that I was able to select the bat shape and delete everything else. The original shape is 1.9" wide. I resized it to 1.6" and 1.3" locking the aspect ratio and cut out all three sizes. 


I added the bats to the bags with black pop dots.



Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Halloween!
