Halloween Monster Treats

Monster Treat bags made using the Big Shot and Top Note Die can take on many variations.  Just mix in a few different punches for the face features, sponge a little color onto your cardstock and have fun creating your own style monster.

Both the front and back of the bag were cut with the Top Note Die, but only the front is decorated.  On the back piece I just sponged on some ink for added color.  The hair is a strip of black cardstock also cut with the top of the Top Note Die and then cut into different lengths for bangs.  Circle, square, oval, and word window punches were used for all of the features.  A gel pen added some dimension to the eyes and one monster mouth, and a black marker was used to draw on the green monster mouth.  The bags used for the candy were purchased at a local craft store.  The handle is just a strip of black cardstock and some brads to keep it in place. 

To make today's project I used the following:
Cardstock:  Basic Black #121045, Whisper White #100730, Brocade Blue and Gable Green (Retired)Punches:  Word Window #119857, 1 1/4" Square #119865, 1 3/8" Oval #119863, 1" Circle #119868, 3/4" Circle #119873, 1/2" Circle #119869
Accessories:  Sponges #101610, Uni-ball Signo Gel Pen #105021, Basic Black Marker #100082. Neutral Brads #119736
Ink:  Pumpkin Pie #105216, Old Olive #102277, Perfect Plum #101437
