Just Treats!!

Hi all...Frances here!!! *waving madly* I am just dying that I am posting right to the Bo Bunny blog. Yep, it's all me, and I am a bit nervous. I have a tendency to be a Chatty-Kathy. No, really, I do...and a bit random. But today, I am going to be on my best behavior. Anyhoo, I am the mommy of 4 kiddos, with the oldest being 9 and the youngest turning 4 on the 30th of the month. So needless to say, I appreciate a simple crafty project that makes me look like I got it together. And if you know what I am sayin', I have the perfect Halloween treat project for you. Here are the deets...

1. Gather your supplies. (Bo Bunny Whoo-ligans Patterned Paper (of course), Whoo-ligans Embellishments, trimmer, corner rounder, Tombo Adhesive, border punch, scissors, and Halloween Treat Bag Template (see below).

2. Print Halloween Treat Bag Template on a piece of cardstock and cut out. You may have to resize it to get it the right proportion.


3. Using your favorite Whoo-ligan's patterned paper, trace template and cut out.



4. Fold patterned paper toward the center of the small square.

5. Using your corner rounder, clip all of the outside corners.


6. Using a really tough permanent adhesive (I used Tombo Mono Roller Adhesive), glue flaps to the back of the treat pocket.

7. They should look like this...


8. Embellish to your liking and add treats!! Here are a few of the ones that I created...

Supplies Used: Whoo-ligans Dot, Whoo-ligans Batty, Whoo-ligans Boo, Whoo-ligans Combo Stickers, 12" Whoo-ligans Chipboard, Whoo-ligans iCandy Dimensionals 3D Cardstock Stickers, Bo Bunny Double Dot Ribbon, and various Bo Bunny buttons.
See...easy!!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend. And if you give this a try, I would sure love to take a peek...tootles!!
