Halloween treats with Cheesecloth!

This week Papertrey's Make It Monday challenge was to use a fabric stabilizer to help you make fabric die cuts.  Well, who would want to do that?  Being the planner that I am, I wanted to do something for the coming holiday, but what?  If only I had cheesecloth.  Someone gave me a ghost die cut a couple years ago for Christmas and I can't say it had ever been used.  Sometime I forget some of the stuff I have, especially when I receive it off season and then don't use it right away.  Anyway, I happen to remember that I do have cheesecloth sitting in a jar, left over from a project one of my littles did a couple years ago.  Now, where was the stabilizer?  Surely I have some, but where did I put THAT?  I head to the closet where most of the sewing stuff is and it turns out that at some point I bought heat-n-bond.  Why?  I don't know.  I didn't find the stuff I thought I was going to, but I can use this.  Finally, I can try and get this project started...

So I get these oh so adorable cheesecloth ghosts die cut.  Now what?  Well, Halloween treats are always a hit around here.  I already have so many things planned what else can I do?  Aha!  I have glassine bags I bought years ago and then didn't know what to do with.  So let's make this work.  And it did! 

Here is the final product.

So much fun!  Now I just have to make a few more so everyone around here gets one.  And with all that stuff I forgot I had - heat-n-bond, cheesecloth, dies - I am putting this up in the Forgotten Things Challenge at Our Creative Corner.  I'm also putting in over at the Anything but a Card Challenge over at Gingerloft Challenges.

Thanks for looking!
