Creepy Coffin Bottle Bag with G45 and Petaloo

It's blog hop week for Graphic 45 and Petaloo... two of my very favourite companies! Be sure to pop over and check them out for more great projects by my teamies and your chance to win some fabulous swag (seriously, their stuff is gorgeous!). On to my project...

I love Halloween. Perhaps part of that love stems from the fact that even grown-ups can play along and enjoy spookiness. Here I’ve created a gift bag that is just the right size for a bottle of something deep dark and red. Perfect for a grown up goodie bag or hostess gift.

Yep! That wine was made by Mr. Pixie!
The bag was created with two large coffin shapes, 12” tall, cut from An Eerie Tale > Gone Batty. The sides are strips of paper 3.25” wide with additional ½” flaps on either side that adhere the front and back coffin shapes. The bottom of the bag has a double layer to ensure the precious cargo remains safe.

For the handle I’ve attached a length of wide Fancy Trim from Petaloo. This is secured to the front and back of the bag, the ends hidden with embellishments like An Eerie Tale Tags & Pockets, An Eerie Tale Decorative Chipboard and Petaloo’s Burlap Blossoms

I’ve added some Alphabet Sticker Staples to spell out RIP to finish it off… because I’m spooky like that ;)

Don't forget the back!

Now get out there and make yourself something spooky.
