Surprise goodie bags!

It´s Friday again and my turn to inspire you at 2 Cute Rubber Stamps.
This time I wanted to make something where I could use the same image for different occasions, so I made these bags and I dressed them up turning them into Halloween, Birthday and Christmas bags. The image I chose this time is Kitty Surprise and you can find it at Heidi´s store, here. Isn´t it cute???!!!
I colored the images with colored pencils and used scraps of cardstock and patterned paper to decorate the fronts of the bags.
To make the Halloween one I used a traditional color combo: yellow, orange, gray and black. I used gold glitter glue to frame the patterned paper (from Jaime) and cut it with edge scissors, I took a piece of black ribbon from my stash and attached it with a staple.
I applied black glitter on the bow and I glued a witch hat sticker on the kitty´s head. I cut the image and placed it with foam tape.
To turn it into a Birthday bag I cut with edge scissors a piece of paper from my stash and traced the border with crystal glitter glue after gluing it on the front. I made a hole on the top and tied a piece or blue ribbon with a double knot.
On the image I glued blue glitter on the bow, crystal glitter glue on the dots of the box and a finished it with a rhinestone. Cut the image and placed it with foam tape also.
And the last one is a Christmas goodie bag. I cut the patterned paper (from Summer Driggs) with some card wiskers (from Mel), glued it to the bag and edge it with white puff paint (that I puffed after it dried), and I used a tiny clothespin I had for ages to close the bag.
And on this one I used red, green and silver as color combo, so I glued silver and red glitter on the box and I placed the kitty with foam tape for dimension too.
I filled the bags with candy, but you can put whatever you like: candy, trail mix, yummy cereal, chocolates, small goodies, or buttons if you have a crafty friend! the possibilities are endless... They are very easy and you can make them in no time really!
