Isn’t he precious??? I had lots of fun making these little Boo Banner Bags!

Here is what you will need: Build-A-Banner Simply Created Banner Kit, Cardstock, Sticky Strip, Sponge Daubers, Ink, & Ribbon.

You need to pick one of the three styles of banners you would like to use (banner, point, rounded), any of them would work fine! You will then use your template to color in. I used the Chevron Template and used Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango for a candy corn look! Then then took the black and colored in the word BOO. You will then need to take any type of ribbon to make the handle. I used the fabulous Chevron Ribbon because it’s super fun (and messes with your eyes if you look at it too long). Trace your banner onto cardstock so you can create your backing. This is where the points and banner tip work better than the rounded one for me because I can cut lines but when it gets to rounding, I am not as smooth! 😉 You will then line the sides and bottom of the cardstock with Sticky Strip, peel off the red backing, and stick to your banner! I added stitch lines with my Basic Black Marker and the eyes for the Boo were created with Whisper White, Crushed Curry, and Basic Black circles (the white line was created with my Chalk Marker)! I hope you try these adorable bags out! I loved making them! I’m thinking about doing Christmas ones…..HoHoHo or Santa or Snowflakes…..Mmmmm endless possibilities!

Happy Sponge Dauberin’
