Boo! Howl-o-ween Treat

The other item I made this week were some bags for my kids for Halloween. They are kind of a trick AND treat bag with both chocolates and plastic bats and spiders inside, hehehehe.
It was hard to get a good, full length shot of this as it was made from a full 12x12 sheet of patterned paper. The bag itself was made using the giftbag punch board and following the score lines for the large bag. While the paper was obviously larger than the board, and thus score lines didn't go right to the edge, you can turn it around and line things up to finish each score line, use your paper trimmer or the stampin' score to finish off the score lines, or just not worry about it and carefully fold along the bits that are scored then continue the fold to the edge (just make sure things are lined up at the edge nice and square). Being owl fans I had to use the fab owl image from the Howl-o-ween Treat set for their bags. The sentiment is literally hanging by a thread, being attached only in the middle behind the owl layers so it will swing around on it's silver thread.
