Halloween Bagalope

Every year I try and make something special for the neighbor kids and my kids' close friends for each holiday.  Last year I made Witch's Broom Favors (Martha Stewart) and those were a big hit! This year, I am going a little smaller with a Bagelope (instructions HERE).  I used a standard letter envelope and cut the top with pinking shears.  The flap was stamped with a star background stamp.  The bat was embossed in black on orange paper and then cut out.  Simple, but sweet.

One down, about 15 more to go.  Good thing I have about 5 weeks, because right now I am battling a sinus infection and this is it for today.   Have a great weekend!

  4. We don't celebrate Halloween much here in Australia, although we have had one family come knocking the last couple of years for treats. Your bagalope looks fab and I'm sure your neighbour's children love them
