Spooktacular Layout and a Paper Bag Card

I have a few more things to share with you using the Noel Mignon Ghost Story kit (only ONE left!). First, is a layout I did of my daughter in her Narnia White Witch costume from last year. I really love how even though her costume is white and blue, by using accents of orange, black and green the layout still has a Halloween feel to it.

I love to make cards using paper lunch sacks, especially during the fall where the Kraft color compliments the colors of the season. Use pinking shears to cut the bag a little smaller for a square card.
Inside, adhere a piece of cardstock to write your sentiment on.
These are also really fun for invitations. Utilize the opening in the paper sack by tucking in additional information about the party or add a slip of paper with directions to your house.

I actually used paper lunch sacks to create Christmas cards one year. I decorated the front, added a picture on the inside, and then wrote a short newsletter that I tucked into the paper bag opening. They were easy and were an adorable variation on the standard Christmas card.

Have fun creating!
