A very cute couple who can hold lots of treats and who appear sooo sweet…may I introduce you please to Mr & Miss Monster!

Aren’t they fabulously cute?!   They are goody bags and just perfect for Halloween or a monster themed party…open the flap and inside is a bag with plenty of room to house treats!

I plan to make a bunch for my girls’ classmates for this year’s Halloween treats – they are fun and easy and I think the kids are just going to LOVE them!  And sooo economical too – they use just 1 sheet of 12×12 cardstock and whatever you want to decorate them with…

I came across this idea when I visited an Australian demonstrator’s blog by the name of Carol Dunstan and I just had to make my own version – I resized them and have written a tutorial on how I made them, to make it easy for you to make them too…you can find the link to this at the end of my blog post.

Now Mr Monster is made from Old Olive cardstock – I textured his head by using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder (pg 214) and gave him a dashing look by adding Black Satin Ribbon (pg 191).

Miss Monster is made from Perfect Plum cardstock – I textured her head using the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder (pg 214) and gave her a girly look by using Paper Daisies (pg 188) and a pink Designer Button (pg 186) – I added eyelashes to make her look extra cute…

I use magnetic closures to close my bags – you can find these at craft & scrapbook stores or you could use little velcro circles that you can find in big box stores…the beauty of both of these types of fasteners is that they can be opened & closed many times…

How do you make the teeth?  By using 3 different punches – Word Window, 1 3/8 x 5/8″ Oval and 1/2″ Circle Punches – all of which you can find on pg 202.

The eyes?  I used these Circle Punches – 1 3/8″, 1″ and 1/2″ – again on pg 202 and I added them using Dimensionals to make them ‘pop’…

    These are just too cute! You could use them for birthday parties and all kinds of fun things besides Halloween. I gotta go with the girl – between the eyelashes and the flower in the hair – I guess there is hair (?)- just too cute! Thanks for sharing with us the tutorial too.

    So cute. The kids will go crazy for them. As purple is my favorite color, I must say I like the Perfect Plum one best.

    I love both, but probably partial to the Miss. I have two granddaughters, and they would love them. I have already made the test tube treats. Thanks for sharing all your great ideas. JoAnn
