Spooky Treats!

I was in a Halloweenie kind of mood this weekend, so I thought I'd sit down and make up some cute little decorations and three hours later, this is what I got. And I like it okay, but I mean, do you ever have one of those days that you just can't get anything right? Like you're ready for the scrappy genius gods to bless you, and they say NO! Well, it is the most frustrating thing EVER!

Though I must say, I do love how our dying grape arbor made just about the most perfectest little background ever.

This little treat bag is made from a Creative Imaginations lunch bag, which I must say I never really understood. I mean, it's just a lunch bag right? WRONG! It's a super duper strong, thick paper, stands up to anything lunch bag. So, I covered it in Heebie Jeebies paper from We R Memory Keepers and added some rubons and chipboard from Bo Bunny. I cut slits in the folds down the top of the bag about two inches, folded them over, and edged punched them with a Martha punch and then slapped on that cute little Trick or Treat tag from WRMK. I finished it off with some sheer black ribbon to hold the top closed. I'm thinking it will be great for packaging up neighborhood BOO gifts or as a party gift with some creepy feeling goodies inside.

So back to the subject of mojo-less-ness (yes, that is officially a word now!) and all it's brain-frying trappings. What do you do when you find yourself in this little quandry? What get's you going again?

I work for We R Memory Keepers. Just wanted to say thanks for posting a project made with our new Heebie Jeebies line. Not sure if you know this, but we have a new Website, Facebook page and Twitter. If you don't mind we would love to post about your trick or treat bag on Facebook & Twitter. Let me know if it's okay. Thanks again.
