Bagalope Boooooo!

Hello!  I have the cutest little bag to share with you guys today!  It is a bagalope and is made from an envelope!  Have you seen these cute things around?  This would make the most fun little candy holder for a little treat for someone of if you give out candy at Halloween these would be fun to make!!  Here is the one I made:

I used an A2 card sized envelope and sealed it shut.  I scored it on both long sides and then across the bottom at 3/4".  I ran the whole thing through the Chevron EF and then stamped it and colored it.  I cut off the sealed end that wasn't scored to give my bag an opening.

 Open the whole thing up and flatten the bottom.  This will give you two pointy pieces.  Just crease the score lines good and glue them flat against the bottom of your new bag! I punched two holes on the top and inserted the ribbon.  You would want to put your candy or goodies in before this step!!

I stamped the little piece of candy and fussy cut it.  I folded a small strip of paper accordion style and glued the candy to one end  and the other end behind my scallop circle to give it a bouncy little spring!

This is the back of the envelope/bag.  These are so easy and fun to make!  You can use any size envelope.  Just be sure to score them all at the same measurement.

The Details:
Stamps: Halloween Hello
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White
Ink: Early Espresso, Pumpkin Pie and More Mustard markers
Punches and Dies: 1  1/4" Circle, Scallop Circle and Chevron EF
Extras: Dimensionals and White Gel Pen

You should try one of these!  They really are a lot of fun to make!!  

It is all rainy and dreary here again today!    Makes me want to snuggle up with a good book and a giant cup of tea!!

Enjoy the rest of your day!  I will be back soonest with more to share!
