So, I'm obsessed with making these things called Showbags. Which are, according to the generally reliable, yet obviously corrupted Wikipedia: "A distinctive feature of Australian fairs and carnivals (known locally as shows) is the showbag, a themed carry bag of commercial merchandise. The bag is usually made of plastic or heavy paper, and is printed with graphics promoting the theme or manufacturer. Showbags were orginated unoffically from New Zealand. They were used as a form of insteading of giving one big gift they were used to give a lot smaller gifts in one bag."
Anyhow, i started making them for my Mr. Sean's Cartoon Club! & i just made one for all of the trick or treaters who came by for Halloween. I made a comic specifically for the showbag, promoting the proper celebration of Halloween. Check it out.
I'm now pressuring for a New Year Showbag to give as gifts.
