Gone Batty!

This weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge is Halloween Goodie Packaging!

This project was actually really fun to put together! i don't normally make things for Halloween because i never have use for them, but i think Halloween stuff can be soooo fun! 
This packaging can be used for so many things! fill the bag with whatever you like! popcorn, cookies, candy...or all of the above!
This was also my first time using my Witches Brew Washi Tape on a project of my own!! originally, i wasn't sure how i would feel about it, but i really like it! Its just another fun little toy to play with in my stamp room whenever and however i like! very versatile! 

Here are some things i feel i should point out:
The button on the top is covered guessed it....Washi Tape! What a fabulous idea! got an ugly button? Cover it with some fabulous Washi! just stick it on, and poke through the holes with your paper piercer, sharp scissors, or a pen. The Yellow Striped Tag came from the Tag A Bag Accessory Kit, as did the orange Bakers Twine.  I used the Witches Brew Washi Tape along the top and in a criss-cross on the bottom. 
For the Witches hat, i first punched an oval out of Basic Black Cardstock, then just free-hand cut the top portion. I stuck the bottom of that portion into the oval punch to round it out, then did the same thing with a Pumpkin Pie piece. then i just finished feeding the piece through the punch to make the band. i free-hand cut the buckle out of Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie.  For the bat, i used the body from the Owl Builder Punch, then punched with a small circle punch along the bottom of a scrap piece of Basic Black. I then used my 1 -1/4  Circle Punch to create the wings.  i drew his mouth with a White Gel Pen. 
I really like how this turned out!!
