Eclectic Ellapu Challenge #53 - Inspired by a Movie

Hello Crafters!

Jacki from the purple team over at Eclectic Ellapu has chosen a pretty cool theme this week. Inspired by a movie is a great theme and I took advantage of the holiday that is just around the corner (Halloween) and chose The Wizard of OZ for my project. Now, I have also up-cycled this project. The bag below came from my eye doctor's visit. I love the bags we get from them (I get four new ones each year!). There was a sticky label with the doc's logo on it that I removed then decorated the bag to fit our theme this week. Take a peek:

I just love Graphic 45 and their Wizard of Oz paper was just the ticket for this project. As this was in my stash for a year or so, I am keeping with the promise to myself to use up the products I have.

These "stamp" images were distressed and popped up on the upper portion of the bag. Had to add a little glitter in a couple of places.

The group picture was distressed as well and backed with black tulle. I used hot glue to attach the tulle (that I scrunched as I went along) and foam tape and hot glue to attach it to the bag. I then added a little red glitter glue to Dorothy's shoes and the Tin Man's heart.

At the bottom of the bag I added black rose ribbon across the width with hot glue and used foam tape again to attach the distressed witch stamp.

I hope you like my project this week. But don't stop here. Get on over to Eclectic Ellapu and check out the rest of the DT's awesome projects. We would love to have you join us too! And don't forget, only a couple more days for the treasure hunt before the big draw. It's not too late to join up.
So what are you waiting for?

Happy Crafting!
