Mummy Bag Tutorial

As promised (and I am early) here is a tutorial for these cute Halloween Mummy Treat Bags. They are pretty easy but in case you need a little help I have pictures.
First you will need:
-a white paper lunch bag
-1 inch strips of white fabric
-1 piece of white cardstock
-hot glue
-googly eyes

1. Start by cutting 3 and 3/4 inches off the top of your bag. You could make your bag the full size but that takes more fabric and time and I like the proportions of this size better.

2. Next cut 2 pieces of cardstock 3 3/8 x 7 inches.
3. Open up the bag and glue the cardstock to each side to make it stay open and give it more stability.
4. Now take your fabric strips (the longer they are to start with the quicker the project will go) and
begin wrapping them around the bag (one at a time) securing with hot glue. Don't be too neat while doing this-mummy's are not wrapped perfectly. Continue all the way around the bag to the bottom.
5. Next fasten the eyes, tucking them in under one of the layers of fabric. Then take another fabric strip and wrap it around slightly over the top of the eyes.
6. To add the handle I put some eyelets in the sides of my bag first. This is not necessary because a handle could just be hot glued right to the bag. This does make it a bit more sturdy.
Then I threaded a piece of ribbon through each side and tied the end with a knot on the outside of the bag.
7. Finally I wanted to make my mummy look a little bit aged so I used my Sepia ink pad and brushed over the bag here and there lightly.
8. Then to add a bit more cuteness I added a couple of extra halloweenish ribbons to the handle and that is it. One cute little mummy!!
