Quixotic Paperie - What Big Eyes

Hi!! Well it's that time of year again.... seems every year coming up to Halloween and Christmas I get an overwhelming urge to make treat bags and boxes, lol. Today, for my Quixotic Paperie DT project I took the whole Little Red Riding Hood bringing food to Grandma idea and made a Treat Bag featuring What Big Eyes from the Susana Loves Stamps 'Eyes' collection. 

I stamped my image out onto Make it Colour blending card with memento black ink. I coloured her up with copics and Touch Twin markers and trimmed her. Then I set her aside while I prepared the bag. Using coordinating inks I stamped a background and then some leaves. The Seeds packet image, Goodwill sentiment and the leaves are from Waltzingmouse Stamps. I used Touch Twin markers for the leaves. 

I cut out some kraft tickets using MFT Die-Namics ticket strips die, then I stamped my sentiment onto it. I layered up the leaves and adhered the sentiment ticket with 3D foam dots. Then I glued a metal watering can onto the ticket. Once I had the bag completed I folded the top down twice and punched 2 holes using my crop-a-dile and threaded some gingham ribbon through it.
