FCCB 182 - Black and Purple

Happy Monday!  It's time for another fun challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut!!  This week's challenge is a color challenge.  We want you to use Black and Purple as the main colors on your project.

My first thought was Halloween - it is right around the corner after all!!  I decided to make some mini treat bags.

I saw a tutorial on Pinterest for making bags out of 8 1/2 x 11 paper with no cutting, only folding.  Check out the tutorial HERE and some great examples HERE.

I used Create a Critter 2 for all my cuts.  I started with this cute spider wearing a witch's hat.  I found this spider web paper in Paper Studio pad I have and thought it was the perfect background for this little guy.

I think the vampire bat is another cute Halloween image on the Create a Critter 2 cartridge.  And below is one of my favorites - the little owl wearing a witch's hat.

The tags were rectangles of cardstock that i used my corner chomper on to round the corners.  Then I punched a hole and put in a grommet using my Crop-A-Dile.  I used bakers twine for my handles, feeding it through the grommet on the tag when I attached them to the bags.

The back side of the bags are all the same.  I found this image on Create a Critter 2 as well.  I covered the letters in Glossy Accents so it would have a fun shine.

These were fun to make and I'm excited to hand out a few special Halloween treats in them!

Be sure to link up your black and purple creations at Fantabulous Cricut by Sunday evening!  I'm looking forward to seeing them!!
