"Try It Different" Tuesday: Another Halloween Witch

Last month, you saw the card I'd made using 11116MC Halloween Witch HoneyPOP Clear Set (drawn by artist Tammy DeYoung) in this CHA "sneak peek" post:


On Sunday, Tina Covington showed us her adorable version.

But she didn't stop there! Here's a fun Halloween goodie bag decorated with the same set:


Because Tina placed the broom upright in the witch's hand, she cut the honeycomb shape just a bit smaller than the original pattern stamp.

She also used 11103SC Beautiful Borders HoneyPOP Clear Set to create a pretty embellishment along the top of the bag:


The bag itself is actually made from an A2 size (4 3/8" x 5 3/4") envelope. Tina used an envelope template to form hers from patterned paper.

Then she sealed the flap closed, trimmed a little off one of the shorter ends, and scored 1/2" inward on the other three sides. The bag is formed when you fold on the score marks.

Here's a nice little photo tutorial of the process from The Glue Gun Girl. Have you tried making this bag yourself?
