Trick or treat at Doobadoo

Hi gys, just popping by with a project I've put together for Halloween using some of the fabby Laser paper cuts from  Dutch Doobadoo, I was so lucky as they were part of my DT kit when I got home from my Hols, a nice coming home present that, he he
Links to suppliers are on my sidebar
I've made a lot of Halloween projects this year due to  my DT'S and there are more to come!! so I decided to make a treat bag!!
a little tutorial is below!!!

Items needed

Dutch Doobadoo - Black Halloween  Laser paper cuts - 472.950.001
Dutch Dobadoo - Dutch Mask Art A5 Spiderweb - 470.715.011
Dutch Doobadoo - Dutch shape Art 15 x 15 cm shape - 470.713.100
raffia lace
designer paper
black card stock
distress ink
distress tool
cellophane bags
removable masking tape
cheesecloth (optional)

tape  the spiderweb mask onto the reverse of the bag to hold the mask in place, the bag is smaller than the mask so it holds it on the edges underneath,
dab black soot through the mask carefully trying not to move the mask as it's on a slippy surface, sorry about the pictures they are catching my lights etc,
when you have the desired level of ink on, carefully peel off the taped mask touching only the edges as it will be full of ink, lol

Hopefully you can see it better on this picture, the bag has been left to air dry a little while, the dried very lightly with a heat too, don't hold the heat tool  too close or you will shrink the cellophane then last I put a piece of kitchen roll flat on the top and placed my hand over it, pressing  it lightly to remove any last hints of wet ink, the bag is completely dry now to play with,

Too do the top I drew round the dutch art shape on black card then cut it out, I did the same with the next size down out of designer paper then distressed the edges of both with my distress tool,
Fold both of these in half  and finish off with the laser cuts as desired,
I used some staples to fix my top on my bag after turning the top of the cellophane down and over on itself to keep the contents fresh!!

Hopefully you can see the spiderweb design on the bag!!

Happy Halloween
hugs Liz xx
