Halloween Loaded Bag / Flip Bag with Tutorial

Hello!  Can you believe it's OCTOBER?  Oh my goodness, where did summer go?  I actually love that the season is changing, the air is crisper and the leaves are turning beautiful shades of autumn.  

Along with the beautiful season changes of Fall, comes October with its Halloween theme!  I'm not  a huge Halloween decorator, my kids are no longer participating in the Halloween events, but for some reason, it's one of my favorite crafting themes!

I've been busy making Halloween Flip Bags (some call them Loaded Bags) for our Swap it! Facebook group.  They are so much fun to make.  I love, love, love the layered look of flip bags and the multitude of textures going on.

Basically, you take a party bag (or make one with your CRICUT, see my video below) and fold it up on the bottom to make a pocket, then stuff it with goodies!

The more stuffed it is and the more layers you can get the better, in my opinion. 

Can you tell, I might be addicted?

Ok, so there's no doubt, I may have gone a little overboard!

But they are so fun!

Here's a quick video and free cut file if you'd like to make one with your Cricut or Silhouette.
