Boo Bag! - Use-It! challenge #25 23

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, August 27, 2009 @ 5:19 PM | , , ,

Hi Girls! Do any of you play the You Have Been Boo'd Game in your neighborhood or at work? If not you should! It is a way to have fun with your neighbors / co-workers! (I work in an Operating Room so we all have to change into scrubs provided at work. We have assigned lockers, (aka: our front doors), in the locker-room so that's where we put our Boo bags!) As the winner of the Use-It! challenge #23, I am honored to be presenting you girls with this week's Use-It! challenge #25 project! My Boo Bag! :)

Here are the details: Grab ANY paper bag that you have hangin' around the house & decorate it using a HALLOWEEN theme! Simple right? Get to it & Use-It! then link it to Mr. Linky on the Use-It! challenge site! :) Thanks for looking at my Boo-Bag, I am looking forward to seeing ALL of your creations & I'd love to know if you play You Have Been Boo'd? Be Sweet! Here is mine:

Ingredients Used:

Stamps: SU Bitty Boos

Paper: DCWV glitter & DP paper, SU Certainly Celery, Lavendar Lace, Only Orange, Gable Green, Summer Sun, Kraft, Whisper White

Ink: VersaMagic Pretty Petunia, Mango Madness, Aloe Vera, Key Lime, Midnight Black

Sprinkles: generic white gift bag, chipboard, clear embossing powder & brads, Cricut Tags, Bags, Boxes and More & Base Camp cartridges, Sizzix dies, generic chipboard, Offray ribbon


How to "Boo":

1) Copy the poem (see below) and instructions below it onto a sheet of paper.
2) Print off a sign with a ghost (find a drawing online) and write the word "BOO" on it.
3) Gather treats in a basket or bag.

Drop off the items from the supply list on the front porch of a neighbor. Be careful not to let them see you. The game is more fun when it’s a surprise.

Here's the poem:

"You've Been Boo'd"
The air is cool the season fall
Soon Halloween will come to all
The spooks are after things to do
In fact, a spook brought this to you
"BOO" is a shield from the witching hour
Just hang it up and watch its power
On your front door is where it works
It wards off spooks and scary jerks
The treats that came with crypted note
Are yours to keep, enjoy them both
The power comes when friends like you
Will copy this and make it two
Then others here among our friends
Will give warm fuzzies that do not end
We'll all have smiles upon our face
No one will know who "BOO'd" whose place
Just two short days to work your spell
Or a big zap will strike your tail
And don't forget a nifty treat,
Like something cute or something sweet
Please join the fun, let's really hear it
And spread some "BOO's" and Halloween spirit.

Please keep it going by following these directions:
1. Enjoy your treat.
2. Place the BOO sign on your front door or visible in a window.
3. Within 2 days, make 2 copies of this note, make 2 treats & 2 BOO signs.
4. Secretly deliver to 2 neighbors/friends without a BOO sign.
5. Keep an eye on nearby front doors to see how far and fast it spreads by Halloween.

REMEMBER: Have fun!

Cat is right, this is a very cute project/design! Although we don't really celebrate Halloween down under, I still think all of your Halloween decorations and designs are very cute. I have started a trend in my family to decorate our flat with spooky things! No trick or treating here though. Thanks!
