Do You Believe in Magic???

...you might after you see this new set by Alicia for Gina K Designs-- Feel the Magic!
When I first saw these images I was immediately drawn to the adorable witch...she is so cute and I knew I wanted to make a little treat bag featuring her.


I cropped the original image of the witch (she is sitting on a mushroom in the actual stamp) and I had her sitting on a cauldron (that I just cut from designer paper) instead. Since I wanted to use these little eyeball chocolate crisp candies inside---I thought having her sit on a cauldron working up a spell would work well. (Who knows what she is planning on turning a bunch of eyeballs into anyway??!!) The set comes with a cute little star wand so I took that idea and just made it larger (so it wouldn't get lost in the busy design) and used a punched star covered in glitter for her wand.

I used my treat tote tutorial to make this pouch. I just made this a bit wider to accommodate the large window. I put the eyeballs into a clear envelope before securing them inside and then I re-used the mesh bag the candies originally came into to add to the inside of the window. (I cut the mesh bag open and then adhered it to the backside of the front opening.)

Materials used: Stamps-Feel the Magic (Gina K Designs); cardstock-white Pure Luxury (Gina K Designs); Copic markers; stickles-purple and gold (Ranger); designer paper--Stampin' Up, Halloween paper pack (Recollections); circle punches (Stampin' UP); star punch (SU!); slit punch (SU!); scalloped circle punch (SU!); Spellbinders Nestabilities dies; crystal stickers (Mark Richards); hemp; orange ribbon (May Arts); (candy).


Boy, my kids are gonna be so happy to see this posted---- they have been patiently waiting to eat those eyeballs!!!

That netting is a perfect embellishment for your project, very creative. Oh, and your baby is so cute. I have 3 more years until I send mine off to school and I'm not sure it'll be easy. Why do they have to grow up so fast?
