Halloween Treat Bags Graphic 45 Style! Giveaway

Welcome to the Third Annual Fiskateers ORANGE Blog Hop!  If you're hopping along, you should have come from Jennifer's blog, A Secret Vintage.  For a complete list of participants and the beginning of the blog hop go to the Fiskateers Blog.  The Fiskateers is an online community of all type of crafters and is sponsored by Fiskars.  As you progress through the hop you will find a myriad of projects focusing on many of the Fiskars tools and products along with some incredibly talented crafters.  There are many giveaways along the hop as well as giveaways by the Fiskateers Leads. 

What says Orange better than a bit of Halloween!  I used Graphic 45's Happy Haunting Halloween paper collection and some of my favorite Fiskars tools to create these treat bags for 3 of my grandchildren.  (click on any photo for a more detailed look)

I used my Fiskars Trimmer to cut a base to work on.  I created a scalloped edge to the bag and paper with my Fiskars Scalloped Sentiment Border punch.  The punch had no problems going through all the layers of the bag with one punch. All my detail cutting was done by my number one go to tool, Fiskars Micro-tip, Spring Action Scissors.  I don't leave home without them.

A fun owl for Little.  She loves owls.  I saw a mini book that did NOT intent to remind me of an owl, but it did.  I cut out the owl and clocks.   I made the "spooky" tree with Fiskars USX Woodland Tree Shape Template.  After I cut it out I embossed it with a wood grain embossing folder by Sizzix and added a bit of Ranger's Snow Cap Paint Dabber. I cut the words out with my Fiskars Wavy Blade for my Trimmer

I applied Glossy Accents around the outer and inner circle and dusted it with Diamond Dust

This treat bag is for my oldest granddaughter Amber.   The haunted house was created with a Sizzix die.  I added a few creatures with Fiskars Limited Edition Squeeze Punches Hoppy for You (frog) and Night Owl.  I glammed up the Night Owl with a bit of Martha Stewart onyx fine glitter on it's eyes. I put the frog through Fiskars Paper Crimper for dimension.


I loved cutting out the "good" witch and adding a bit of glam to her boa.  I coated the boa with Rangers Glossy Accents and coat it liberally with Martha Stewart's garnet fine glitter.

I'm really "batty" over my granddaughter Hannah!  This was so much fun to make and simple.  I found the instruction and template at Paper Crafters Library blog with guest Graphic 45 designer Jim Hankins.  He was creating a treat box but with a bit of Fiskars know-how I made it into a fun bat that I will attach a surprise to later.

The bat with the wings closed.  I found if you leave them closed overnight they are really great to stay folded.  The tag and brad hold the wings in place.  Just swing the tag downward to open the bat wings.
 

The oval of the bat body is made with Fiskars Oval Cutter.  I have had a lot of requests to create a tutorial on how to use the Fiskars Oval Cutter...which you can get from Michael's Arts and Crafts.  The Oval Cutter is even easier than the Circle Cutter by Fiskars.  I don't plan on making a tutorial because there is a great, detailed, tutorial on YouTube by Lyn Dwyer , Lead Fiskateer Ambassor in Australia.  Click!

After cutting the oval I embossed it with a Sizzix embossing folder.  The eyes are large black brads with Glossy Accents and Maratha Stewart's Garnet Fine Glitter.  

Giveaway
I have a Fiskars Jenni Bowlin Special Edition Main Street border punch to giveaway to one commenter.   Imagine using this for your Christmas Cards, winter scenery, etc.  Very cool.  I'll annouce the winner of the Random.org drawing on Monday right here.  Make sure to check back.
