Happy Halloween!

I wanted to share this little gift basket I made for my neighbors. They always sends little gifts over for us on every special holiday, so I made this for them for Halloween and filled it with some home made garlic/dill/ranch pretzels that I made. I used 2 little treat bags that have black spiders all over them so in keeping with that theme, I added some punched spiders on the sides that were done with a MS punch. I dotted the eyes with a white sharpie.
You probably can't see the tags too well, but I made one for each bag, and then added some tiny tags with tiny eyeballs on them! I dotted them with a pearl pen, and after they dried, I used a black copic to dot the eyeballs! Cute!
I used all retired SU! dp for this and some ribbon from my stash for the handle. If you want to find out how to make one of these, the video is here on StampTV.
Happy Haunting everyone! Have a safe and fun Halloween!
