Thanks to Stuart for sending in this picture complete with this description.

During the mid/late 1970s Smith’s Crisps sold a corn-based productcalled Horror Bags. These were crisps that came in different shapessuch as claws, bones or fangs, etc. The packets always had offers onthem to send away for different things like games, t-shirts, etc, andthe kids went mad for it. Well, I did at least. For a while Horror Bags came with a free small plastic item in eachbag called a Creepy Clutcher, and there were I think, 5 to collect.The Creepy Clutcher is a small thin plastic item that was meant to actas badge or maybe use as a bookmark, as I did with my original one.The ‘hands’ push out to clip/clutch onto anything thin enough.
