Witch's Broomstick

Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year! I had first seen these cute broomstick gift bags last year while browsing the internet and I have been wanting to try one myself ever since. I followed the instructions from Martha Stewart's website here. I made the tag with two older Papertrey Ink Halloween stamp sets. The witch and circle scroll on the 'moon' are from Spooky Sweets II. The witch was stamped first in black ink and then stamped over that with Versmark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The bats are heat embossed on True Black cardstock and then cut out and attached to black wire so they would appear to be flying around the moon.

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies (all Papertrey Ink, unless indicated)
Cardstock: Stampers Select white, True Black, Summer Sunrise, Raspberry Fizz
Stamps: Spooky Sweets and Spooky Sweets II
Ink: True Black, Versamark
Other: Marvy scallop circle punch, raffia, black craft wire, paper lunch sacks, twine, stick
