You've Been Boo'ed.

Have you heard about the fun Halloween neighborhood activity, "Booing" your friends?

You can go to beenbooed.com to read all about it, but basically it's a fun way to surprise your neighbors with an anonymous little treat during October.

I am beginning to prepare little treat bags for this fun activity (and other upcoming Halloween activities), and I wanted to make some out of the adorable Glowing line from Authentique.

Start with a 12" x 5" strip of double sided paper (I used the Black Gingham/Orange Brocade piece). Fold it so that the bottom portion falls about 3/4" from the top of the back side.

Punch the edges with the border punch of your choice. Then adhere down the left and right sides to form a pocket.

Begin decorating the front. I cut a 1" strip of the Newsprint paper, notched the ends, and accordian folded to create a dimensional banner. 
 Crumple it, distress the edges, and add brown ink with a dauber to age it. Then run a strip of adhesive along the back to stick it down to the pocket.

 Cut out a spiderweb from the Lace Spiderweb paper, and distress the edges. (Tip: I just use the open edge of a pair of scissors to distress quickly!)

Add dimension and sparkle to the web by applying a bit of Stickles! 

Add on a strip from the Tabloids diecuts under the banner, a piece of twine wrapped around the card, tiny clothespins, and another diecut from the Noteables collection. 
 A stick pin and a tag die cut, embellished with a few Diction stickers complete the embellishments.
 Punch two holes to string ribbon & lace through and simply knot the trimming. Fill with candy and hang on a lucky recipient's door! :)

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and that this helps you whip up a fun few surprises for your fellow spooks this month!
