How To Make These Spook-tacular Halloween Tote Bags - Guest Blog by 'Birds Party'

Hi, this is Cristina Riches from Bird's Party, and today I'll be sharing with you how to make these spook-tacular Halloween Tote Bags!

 These tote bags are ideal for trick or treating, or to give out to guests as party favors at your Halloween party!

 Halloween puns are so fun and have been trending on Pinterest since last year, and so I thought I'd incorporate them into my bag designs, but feel free to make up your own text or personalize your totes with a child's name for instance!

 All of my bags designs were created using dies from Catalog 3, and I love how they turned out! I made four designs to give you some ideas and to suit any taste or costume you may be wearing. Hope you like them!
