Do you want a trick or a treat?

 Today is the day for the next STAMPOTIQUE DESIGNERS challenge which is to make a trick or treat bag/container.
 Here is my trick or treat pouch. It is folded from book pages (I stick three together for extra stength) and then stitched with a sewing machine.....the stitching went a little wonky but I think it adds to the look....well, that's my excuse anyway!
 Add CHOCOLATE!!

I picked up this cute skull bead at a recent bead fair.

That pumpkin cube just keeps calling my name! They are so, so cute...ok, that's probably not the correct adjective! Great treat bag ... I always aim for wonky stitching, then I always achieve the look I'm aiming for lol

Your bag is fabulous. I'd never have thought of using book pages. Your 'wonky' stitching is just great - the wonkier the better as far as I'm concerned!

Sue, this is totally fab! I love how you have used book pages as "fabric" - too kewl! It's neat how the stick people are the same height as the pumpkins - creates an interesting scale!
