Monster Munch Treat Wrap Tutorial

For today's challenge at My Creative Time, I created this little monster treat wrap.  The wrap was created using the MCT Tag Dies.  The super cute greeting is from the MCT All Around Halloween stamp set.  If you haven't been to Emma's site, you REALLY need to head over there.  Her greetings sets are so wonderful and the wide array of cutting dies are fantastic!

This little "bat creature" looks kind of like a friendly Sesame Street monster, don't you think?


Supplies Needed:
Nestabilities Ovals die set
Big Shot (or other die cutting machine)
1-3/4" Scallop Circle punch
1/2" Circle punch
Word Window punch
Kaisercraft Candy Lane 6" paper pad
Shimmery White card stock
Basic Black card stock
Pumpkin Pie ink pad
Melon Mambo ink pad
Basic Black ink pad
uni-ball white gel pen
Black zig pen
dimensionals

Assembly Instructions:
Step 1
Die cut 2 ovals (2nd from inside) out of pink dot paper.  Starting on the outside edge, punch the 1/2" circle.  Continue across, punching with the 1/2" circle to create the bat wing.  Repeat for the other bat wing.  Sponge the edges of finished pieces with melon mambo ink.

Step 2
Die cut an oval (2nd from outside) from orange print.  Punch a word window from orange print and cut in half.  Sponge edges of orange pieces with pumpkin pie ink.  Punch 1-3/4" scallop circle from pink print and cut into 3 scallop wedges.  Sponge the edges of 3 pieces with melon mambo ink for feet and fur on top of head.  Punch out 1/2" circle from pink print for nose (optional).  Die cut 2 ovals (smallest) from shimmery white cardstock for eyes.  Punch two 1/2" circles out of black for eyes.


Step 3
Glue legs onto body.  Attach wings onto back of body with dimensionals.  Glue pupils onto eyes and add white highlights.  Attach eyes and nose with dimensionals.  Draw mouth with black pen (tip: use a die cut oval and trace the lower edge for a uniform look).  Attach feet to bottom of legs with dimensionals.  Attach fur to head with dimensional.

Step 4
Die cut 2 tags from green stripe paper (or other print of choice).  Score at 1" from the scalloped edge on each tag.  Add sticky strip to 1" section on one of the tags.  Attach the tags end to end.  Tape a fun size candy bar or small treat bag on inside of candy wrap.  Stamp greeting onto green print paper (tip: for rounded end, I slid the paper into an oval punch from the bottom side).   Punch a small hole on end of tag and thread a ribbon through the tag and holes on top of tags.  Tie close.  Attach monster with dimensionals.
