Halloween, it’s all about the candy isn’t it? Oh Yeah, but it’s also fun to have something cute to hold all that yummy stuff. This batty container can be used to hold small treats and when empty, can be hung up as a decoration.
Black and white Cardstock
Adhesive, dimensionals, ribbon, 1 inch circle punch
In a photo editing program enlarge the bat from A Lil Spooky so that the wing span is about nine inches wide. Print two of these for use as templates.
Trim the top of the bat as shown.
And use it as a template to cut out the wings from the star paper found in Spook Ville the Kit.
Adhere the star paper onto black cardstock and trim around the wing shape leaving a 1/4 inch border.
Using some type of circle shape (I used a spellbinders circle die) draw around the edge as shown.
Use the head from step 4 as a template to cut the shape from black card stock.
I wanted the eyes to stand out so the parts were cut separately from black and white card stock and attached in layers on to the head using dimensionals.
The head was adhered to the back of the wings.
A 1/4 inch ribbon was attached to a 1 inch circle of cardstock.
Which was then adhered to the back of the head.
The small Icicle Ornament Template was printed on white card stock for use as a template.
Trim the scallop edge off the template and use to cut out the shape from black card stock.
Using one of the triangles from the icicle template as a guide, a tuxedo front was made from the striped paper from the Spook Ville Kit.
Before assembling the icicle, the striped pieces were adhered to the front of the icicle and a bow was made and attached as well. The icicle was then assembled as shown.
The icicle was adhered to the front of the wings and filled with candy corn.
The bat is so Boo-de-licious baby! This would work really well using a butterfly template also.
Have a howling good Halloween!
