Chic n Scary Pillow and Bags

I love Teresa Collins and with Halloween coming up soon, I thought I would re-show these fun projects using the Teresa Collins Chic N Scary cartridge.



I had seen this pillow (retails for $44) on Home Accents Today and got an inspiration to make a similar pillow using iron on flocking material and a pillow and velvet pillowcase from Ikea.  My total cost was $14 (pillow, case and iron on flocking material).  You could probably do it even less expensively if you used regular fabric and some heat 'n bond.



In the Fall 2011 Stampin Up! mini catalog, I saw kraft bags made with a spider cut out and thought, "Hey, I've got a cut like that on the Chic and Scary Cricut cartridge..." so I decided to make these bags.  I added in the corner web, also from the cartridge.  These make such quick and easy treat bags for a Halloween party.  They went together very quickly!




Don't forget we are giving away the Cricut Hoot 'n Holler cartridge this week (one of my favorites!):

How can you win?

1) Leave a comment below - Love or hate owls?  I love them - especially these whimsical ones!
2) Subscribe or follow the blog.  That's it!

Winner will be announced on Sunday, September 9, 2012 and has two weeks to claim prize.  Allow 4-6 weeks to receive.  We ship everywhere!

Don't forget we give away (at least) a cartridge a week (OR some excellent stamp sets, paper sets, who knows) so you want to be sure and subscribe!

I love owls! Would love that cartridge too. : ) Super cute idea with the pillows and the gift bags. Wish I could have a few more hours in the day to get all the projects done that I'd love to do. Maybe when my kids are older.

Such cute sacks!! I like owls! Living here on the bluff above the creek that we call Hoot Owl Ridge we often hear them even in the house calling to each other. Sometimes they are so loud we can hear them when the TV is on!

Like owls just haven't had a need for them in my scrapbooks. If I win the cartridge I'll have to try to incorporate them on some of my pages. Thanks for the chance to win!

Whooo doesn't love owls? We live out in the country and get to listen to them any night we have our windows open. I love birds in general so I really like the pillow.

Just love those adorably spooky bags and love owls. Have you ever seen the movie of a young teen trying to save the owls that burrow under the sand.

Susan C said...

Love the owls. They make me smile... I can see where different expressions would fit different occasions.

Also like the spider & web bags. How SIMPLE! I think sometimes we forget a project need not be elaborate or complex to be cute and appreciated! :)

Love the pillow idea.... that would make a great gift for a girlfriend and you could personalise it to her likes. Well done!

The post should have been labeled chic pillows and scary bags. Great projects. Owls - I like them but probably not love.

JMCPhillips said...

LOVE the treat bag - so creative!!!
Thanks so much for the chance to win the owl cartridge - I am just starting to embrace the owl trend. We are finally seeing really cute owl images, and I am loving them!!

GTNana said...

I really like Owls..they were very popular back in the 70's/80's weren't they? (Like Mushrooms use to be!) Really like the gift bag idea for Halloween! I made a fab buy at Micheal's recently on some black bags, so I'm going to use your idea but maybe add 'ghosts' to my black bags? You are so creative! TFS.
