Today I have the Halloween Bat treat holder tutorial for you. I had given up hope of ever being able to complete this post, but I am trying again. I have had to start over so many times that I was thinking of just skipping today altogether but I persevered! :<) There may be errors in the spacing of the photos, etc. but I am afraid to try to correct anything again as I will find myself in worse shape! So here it is. I hope you enjoy it! :<) I think the old Halloween spirits were having some fun with me this morning!
Every so often I receive an e-mail from Better Homes & Gardens site and this time it had Halloween crafts listed, so I had to check them out. This cute little bat treat holder caught my eye and I had to make one to see what it looked like! You can find the template here:
First I printed and cut out the template - it comes in two halves and has to be taped together. Then I traced it on SU black CS. I like their CS as it is a nice weight to work with and the colors are very vibrant. Their black CS is a very dense black and the best I have found. My camera has distorted the color in the 2nd and 3rd photos for some reason and they look gray so please just ignore. :<) Be sure to trace the score line on the right under the wing (where the treat holder will meet at the back when assembled), the lines on the wings and the eyes/fangs placement on the face. The dotted line on the left is only to line up the two parts.
Isn't it sparkly and pretty! I also have another called Orange Peel and I am going to make a second bat holder from that. I am sorry that I do not know the name of the brand but that is all that is on the back of the paper.
This photo shows the back of the cut out bat with the Iridescent paper glued to the wings.
Thanks for stopping by today! After over two 1/2 hours and many attempts, I am finally able to post today. This took longer to do than to make the bat treat holder! Hopefully tomorrow's post will not be so difficult!!! :<)
Wishing you a good Monday!
