Sorry about the lack of creativity for the last several days. There just wasn’t enough time in the day to get it all done. But here is a cute project that I made for a scrapbook retreat I went to on Saturday. This was one of the Make & Takes that they could create at my table. The other was the 6×6 scrapbook page I showed last week.
This was inspired from an email advertisement that came from one of those craft stores. And this was a quick and easy project to make.
Whisper White card stock – 8-1/2″ long and 3-1/2″ wide. Score at 4″, 6″, 10″ (that should be right – you can adjust to make the base smaller if you want). The top flap is punched with the scallop border punch and stamped with the bats from Googly Ghouls. Add a strip of the Houndstooth & Herringbone Designer Series paper on the side. First I stamped the Boooo on the bottom of the front panel then punched with the wide oval punch. Add googly eyes on top. Fill a cello bag with candy (I did use the small cello bags that Stampin’ Up! used to sell – I’m not sure why we stopped carrying the smaller sized bag) then staple the bag between the front and back and the flap over the top. I even had Orange staples!
