Thrifty Thursday time

Welcome to Thrifty Thursday, or as I like to call it, Friday-Eve! ;) Today is the day we create new from leftovers, scraps, and/or recyclables. Something I truly love doing. This is what I made for today. Halloween trick or treat bags.....don't panic, these are NO-SEW bags! These used to be tee shirts that were in the Goodwill pile. Super simple and really cute!

But, as you know, I couldn't just make the bag; I had to make flowers to adorn it. These black rolled flowers and leaves are from the leftover pieces from the black bag. So pretty!!

The tags, aren't they adorable!?, are made from My Creative Time, Vintage label and Just Tags dies, embellished with the Spooky ghost die and Fun Alphabet letters. Sentiment, spider and flourishes are from the Fright Night stamp set.

Face stamps are by Peachy Keen from the Make a Monster Face Assortment. This sentiment is from the Spooky Starry Night stamp set.
