I can't tell you how good it feels to have made these trick-or-treat bags for the kids. For the last three years, they have gone out trick-or-treating with Macy's shopping bags, un-altered. If you think I'm joking, do you see the red star of Macy's on the right in certain people's hands? :) The kids did not mind of course but some of my scrappy friends have ridiculed me for not putting forth any effort! Even our dear neighbors made a comment about these red star bags and mocked me for them, lol.
I didn't even plan on altering these two bags until I finished my Sweet Witch layout below on Sunday. As I was waiting for guests to arrive, I thought to myself... since everything was out already, I wonder if I have a couple of shopping bags that I could use to alter... (The Macy's bags are still full of candies from last year) And voila, I threw these together in a matter of 30 minutes. I don't have a picture of the back, but they are decorated as well. Of course, the kids immediately went on to fight over who gets which bag! Ugh, it did remind me why I let them use boring and un-altered Macy's bags! LOL.
Here are some close-ups of this layout. Isn't this collection absolutely adorable?! Don't forget to check out Doodlebug's blog for non-Halloween projects using Monster Mania as well! Thanks for stopping by! Happy Haunting!
