Halloween Purses!

Here are some Halloween purses I CASED from the Stampin' Success Magazine. They use the Petite Purse die cut for the Big Shot and were designed by Missi Roeber. So cute!

I had kind of overlooked these - saw them and thought they were cute, but then a Club member got really excited over them and wanted to make some. She had some questions as to how they were put together so I decided to make a set to figure it out. Sure glad I did - they are quick and easy to put together AND they are soooo fun!

The bat is my favorite. It uses the 1/2" and 3/4" circle punches for the eyes, and the extra large oval for the wings. I cut the 'scallops' of the wings out with the 1" punch. Also, the purse itself is embossed with the Spider Web Embossing Folder.

The pumpkin purse is Pumpkin Pie cardstock embossed with the Stripes Embossing folder. Pretty easy - cut triangles for nose and eyes and cut the large oval in half lengthwise for the mouth and snip out some 'teeth'. The stem is Old Olive embossed with the Square Lattice Folder and I added some curly Q's with a thin strip of cardstock shaped by wrapping around a toothpick.

Frankenstein is embossed with the Lattice Square Embossing Folder and the edges are sponged with basic black ink. Next time I make Frankie I will not emboss it because it's such a condensed pattern it makes the purse kind of floppy and difficult to work with. Frank's hair piece is just cut out of Basic black cardstock and adhered to the purse flap. You may want to cut part of the purse flap shorter so the hair doesn't hang too low and cover up his eyes. Leave the tab in place if you cut part of the purse flap so you can close it.
This bag is made from the Halloween Ghoulish Googlies Designer Kit from Stampin' Up's Holiday Catalog. I embossed the cute little glassine bag with the Spider Web Embossing Folder and used the Apothecary Accents framelits to cut a background layer for the tag. Kind of looks like a headstone or tombstone, dont' you think?
