G’ morning everyone!! Today’s the big day!!! Our Life Preservers Crop!! There are so many fun games, challenges, and make N takes for inspiration! Stop by and say Hi!

Here is my challenge:

What's a party without friends!? I hope you don't mind, but I've invited Danny Dracula, Freddy Frankenstein, Matilda Mummy, and Wanda Witch.
My challenge to you is to create a layout in honor of our friends. It does not need to be fall or Halloween related...create whatever theme you like. However, in honor of our friends your layout must contain the following:

Danny Dracula - Red (Danny's favorite color. It does not need to be the dominate color. Danny says jsut a drop of blood...I mean color is fine!)
Freddy Frankenstein - brads or eyelets ( they remind Freddy of his bolts!)
Maltida Mummy - Ribbon or trim
Wanda Witch - bling or glitter (Wanda says even witches like a little glitz when going out over the town!)

And here is my example….don’t you just love these Collage Press papers?! My favorite!!







For my make N take, I created these fun little treat bags! (again with some awesome Collage Press papers!) These would be fun for neighbors and coworkers!





Directions:You can use any size square, depending on what and how much you want to put inside. A 12x12 is large enough to put several things in, and 6x6 is perfect for a gift card. I made mine 8x8.

Step 1: cut a square from double sided paper ( I cut mine 8x8)


Step 2: fold in half to form a triangle




Step 3: bring bottom left corner up until straight across and fold




Step 4: bring right corner up until straight across and fold




Step 5: Bring one layer of the top point down and fold




Now, you should have a pocket that looks like this:




Step 6: Decorate!!
