Frankenstein Treat Bag {Paper Smooches SPARKS}

Hello, hello!

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  It's been rainy and chilly here in Northeast Ohio- perfect fall weather for staying inside and getting my craft on.  :) Today starts another Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge and this week is Anything Goes.  I was channelling my inner Dr. Frankenstein when I created my project this week and fashioned a monster from Paper Smooches dies.

I started with one of those cute kraft gift bags that are 3 for $1.00 at the craft store (in this case, Hobby Lobby), and I covered it with some fun polka dot paper from my stash.  Next, I die cut a tag from white card stock using the Tag Stitched Die and I die cut and adhered Boo from the Halloween Icon Dies. I tied the tag to the bag handle using some black and white baker's twine. 

I used a bunch of Paper Smooches dies to create my monster face. I put together the graphic below to show which dies were used where.  A list of the dies I used and links to the Paper Smooches store is below. 

What I love about projects like this is that they truly show how versatile dies can be when a little imagination is used.

Paper Smooches Products used: 

I added black enamel dots to create the eye irises and I adhered the nose with a bit of foam tape.  If you have any questions about how I created the Frankenstein's monster, just leave me a comment and I will get back to you. :)

Ready to play?  You know the routine!   You have until 11:59 PT on Saturday, October 25th to link up your take on this week's challenge to the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog for a chance to win a $30.00 gift certificate to the Paper Smooches store. Woot woot!
