Halloween is over, but it doesn’t mean the season over for the Spellbound collection. So I have created a few brown paper bags with a mix of the Spellbound collections and a few pieces from last years collection Golden Days.

These treat bags are nice little gifts to say thank you. We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving here in Norway, but there is never the wrong time for gifts. Hostess gifts and other gifts are nice to have whenever you are invited over.

I used my Cameo to cut out leaves. I used the Internal offset feature to cut out a bigger and a smaller piece of the leaves.  Then I pierced holes and stitched with a sharp orange thread for some extra contrast.

Just the two leaves weren’t enough so I wanted to make it even more interesting. I used a fabric leaf, a gold ephemere from the Golden Days collection and a few other pieces from the same collection. I just used my printer for the text Thank you.

For my other bag I went with slightly different colors, but in this one I also used a square ephemera piece in the bottom.  From the Golden Days collection I also used a paper clip. I wis I would have hoarded these. I really love them.

FOr the text I cut it out on a watercolor paper and then I cut it out in a shape from an old template that I have saved. I loved this one old ephemera I had in this shape and traced it so I could use it for later.  It’s not always about the look, sometimes it’s just the shape that I love.
