Let's go Batty!

Ok, so I'm aware the title of this post is cheesy, but oh well - I like it!  Since Halloween is just a week away (Where has this year gone?), I thought I'd kick off a week of fun Halloween projects and cards.  I told the kids in my class at church they could come by my house while trick-or-treating next week if they want, so I decided to make up some goodie bags for them and for my niece and nephew.

I used the fit to page feature and cut this on a 12x12 sheet of paper using Life's A .  I love this long triangle box!  It's just fun.  I used some bat paper I got on clearance at Hobby Lobby last year.

I tied the top the box closed with the green ribbon.  The top cuts with two tiny holes so you can tie it shut or even attach a ribbon to make a handle.

I cut the scalloped circles from Elegant Edges.  I used an embossing pen to write the sentiment and then embossed it with white powder.  The little bat is a sticker by Sandylion from the dollar spot at Joann's.  Isn't he cute?  Only as a sticker though, not in real life!  I don't do bats.  Ick.

I am off to work now, so I wish you all a happy and peaceful Monday.  I'll be back soon with more Halloween fun!
