Spooky Halloween Treat Holders

Here are the treat holders I came up with using the Two Tag Bigz Die.  I am happy with the way they turned out and they didn't take me all that long to do - YEAH!.  I will give you step by step instructions on how to create these cute little treat holders.  I may just have to make 18 more for my daughter's kindergarten class.

Step by Step Instuctions:
1. Grab your Big Shot & Two Tags Bigz Die.  
2. Take a piece of Whisper White card stock (size 3" x 4-1/2") and position it over top of the bigger tag that is positioned towards the bottom of the die (the tag that has the score line in the middle of it).
3. Next sandwich the die and whisper white card stock between the two standard cutting pads (plexi-glass pads) and run it through your Big Shot.  You will need to do this 2 times as we need two of these tags to make one Treat Holder. 
**If you need to make more than one treat holder, you will need to do steps 2 & 3 over again.  Because the tag that we are using has a score line in it we can only do one piece of card stock at a time.  If we do more than one the score line will end up cutting that line instead of scoring it.
4. Next take the stamp sets you want to decorate the front of your "tag treat holder".  Below are the instructions and supplies on how to make the Bat Treat Holder....

To make the Bat Treat Holder I used some stamps from the Wicked Cool stamp set.  This is a great Halloween stamp set.
5. Lay your Whisper White Tags down on your table.  Take the bat stamp, ink with Basic Black ink and stamp on the upper left side as well as on the bottom right side of both tags.  You will need to apply ink on the stamp each time.  Set aside
6. Next let's add some sparkles to the bat in the top right corner.  Take your Bitty Bat Punch and punch out a piece of Basic Black card stock.  Take your VersaMark Pad and cover the punched out Bat with it.  Make sure that it is all over the bat.  Next sprinkle Heat & Stick Powder on it.  (This is the very first time I have ever used Heat & Stick Powder!) Heat with a heat gun.  You will notice the heat & stick powder becomes gooey & clear.  Next sprinkle the punched out bat with Black Glitter.  I used the Black Glitter from the Fine Galaxy Glitter collection.  That stuff is amazing.  If you don't have any be sure to get some through me. :)  Next you are going to want to heat the bat again so that the Black Glitter stays in place.  Voila a sparkly bat.  Isn't it gorgeous!
7. You will see in the image the Scallop Oval I used is sparkly too.  I did the same process for the Scallop Oval as I did the Bat.  Once you have finished making your Scallop Oval sparkly set aside.
8.  Ink Spooky stamp with Basic Black ink and stamp on a piece of Whisper White card stock.  Punch out using 1-3/4" x 7/8" Oval Large Punch. (To me it looks like the medium oval punch if you look in Stampin' Up!'s Idea Book & Catalogue on pg 203.)
9. Adhere Spooky punched out words on top of the sparkly Scallop Oval punch out.  Flip over and apply 2 Stampin' Dimensionals, peel the backs off and position it in the middle of one of the Tags.
10. Flip the Sparkly Bat over, apply 2 Stampin' Dimensionals, peel the backs off and position it in the top right coner of the same tag.
11. Next fold both tags at score line.  Apply some adhesive to the bottom of one of the tags and position it over top of the other bottom of the other tag.  Apply some pressure so that the two tag bottoms are secure.  We are almost finished.  
12. Next put a Halloween treat inside and secure the 2 holes at the top with something.  I used an orange circle rhinestone brad from Stampin' Up!'s Circle Fire Rhinestone assortment.  You can use ribbon or linen thread, a button...whatever you want.
