I used a holographic gift bag found at my local dollar store and I made sure to keep a large border around my pattern paper to showcase the holographic pattern. I didn't want to cover it up because it's the main focus of this bag flip!

Mini Bag Flips/Loaded Envelopes | Halloween Happy Mail Series

Hi Ghoulies!
Welcome to episode #2 in my Halloween Craft Series for 2017!
For today's tutorial I created 4 adorable mini bag flips or as some may call it loaded envelopes. I used my New October Nights Papers for 3 bags as well as some Jeepers Creepers Elements to decorate.
                            
I couldn't resist playing with my Spooky Pastel collection and created a 4th bag with some scraps from the Spooky Pastel Mini Album I made. For this bag I decorate the back side too. 
You can watch how I put all 4 bag flips together in this video tutorial! Make sure you scroll down for some close up pictures too!

Hi Ghoulies!
Welcome to the first instalment of my Halloween Craft Series for 2017, Episode #1!  Woah, that's a mouthful but in all seriousness, i am SOOOO EXCITED to start off my annual craft series early so i can get as many bootiful projects out for your inspiration before Halloween arrives!
Project #1: Spooky Pastel Mini Album
Spooky Pastel Mini Album | Serena Bee's Halloween Craft Series 2017. https://shop.serenabee.com
I created this adorable mini album for someone in mind but i can't say right now because i don't want to spoil the surprise. I used a Lori Whitlock cut file from the Silhouette design store to create this mini album. I absolutely love this cut file because you can also make it into a happy mail flipbook and fill it up with goodies for your penpals!  I am definitely gonna be making more with this purpose in mind.
I used the new Spooky Pastel Paper Collection as well as cards and elements from the Spooky Pastel 2016 Collection 
Now watch the tutorial to see how I put this Spooky Pastel mini album together:
