Keep Your Pants On!!! Weekend Project

I was looking at some more of those cute Bag in a Box bags and I thought I would try to make some Scarecrow Pants using the new Stampin' Up! decorative papers.

You can find the instructions and a sample of the original bag by Stampin' With Di. And I wish I would have followed these instructions instead of the ones I did. These have step by step photos too. The one I had was just instructions and it was a bit confusing. I did tape mine on the inside of the box instead of the outside only because I didn't have pictures to follow!!! LOL

I added a few fun things to mine to make it look more like pants. First I added that black tapered strip in the front to separate the legs. Then I added strips of Creamy Caramel for the straw. The belt is made using a 1" piece of black card stock. I taped it around the top part of the bag. I made the buckle using a piece of Brushed Gold card stock and two square punches.

I cut two 7/8" pieces of the decorative paper for straps and I added two red buttons. It's pretty simple to make. Fill it with fun things such as candies or toys. I think this could even be used for Thanksgiving as well. You could get 2 holidays out of this one!!!

It was very fun to make and it really didn't take all that long to make either!!!

This item was made using Stampin' Up! products. To view more items made using Stampin' Up! products click here.

Wow, love your take off on the box in a bag idea. Are you going to try for Santa also? Ooops, see someone already suggested that. Maybe a seasonal thing. Leprechan, bunny, may basket....

Also, thank you for sharing the website with the great visual tutorial. Fab...
