What you need to know are the basics- then you can have fun. The containers that are pictured here start with a piece of 5 1/4' x 4 1/4" card stock (you can use decorative paper too). In both cases the paper was run through the Big Shot in an embossing folder. Then you tape up the short side so the paper makes a tube. Use good tape so they don't pop open. Pick one end to tape closed. If you want to add ribbon or some decorative
The Halloween container is a little different in that I punched a hole in the paper before rolling it into a tube, then taped a window sheet over the hole. The rest is all the same, I just changed the decorations. It was so cute filled with Fall color M&Ms and candy corns, but I ate them before I took the picture!
Let me know if you have questions or comments.

I love this card. It is simple and pretty, and only uses the word from a Halloween set. In other words, you don't have to forget about your other stamp sets to make Halloween cards. Change the colors and the greeting and you have a great card for any occasion.
We are making this one at the workshop this week. Let me know if you want to come.

I used the Frightful Sight DSP with Lucky Limeade and Cajun Craze card stock. The ghost is the Owl Builder punch using only the owls body and cutting off his legs :( The spiders are punched out of the paper with the 1" punch then glued to the back of the fold where the ghost are. I also used waffle paper on the back of the front fold to give the ghost a little something to peek around. The only other thing is the words on the paper from several Halloweens ago. They are perfect hidden in the fold behind the spiders.

Look how easy it is to do...
|First you fold the bag on the front so it will fit into the punch.|
|Then you slide it into the punch right up to the crease that begins the side of the bag.|
You can cut the bag any height to get the look you want or to cover your gift.
Thanks for looking.

In case you were wondering about the strange post- or lack of post, it's because I am trying to make this blog way more interesting. I have tons of projects ready to post if I can figure out where to post them! Check back soon for new cards, DIY projects and updates on my life with boyz.
