Jeepers Creepers Goodies for a Teacher

I'm back on Halloween, although I do have another birthday card to make for this month. These goodies are for my daughter Gabrielle's fifth grade teacher, the card you see is a pocket card and super easy to make and after searching through my box templates I found this tote and thought that it would be big enough to hold more than two pieces of candy. Both of these projects have minimal stamping but were a lot of fun to make!

The tote uses one sheet of 81/2 x 11 piece of card stock, if you place your paper horizontally and score 41/2 inches on each end (this will leave you with 2" in the center) and then turn your paper vertically and score 1 1/4 inches on each end (side flaps) and then cut at the 2" section from the outside edge into the center of your box so that you can fold in the side flaps and tape after decorating. I hope these directions are clear, once you get making one you'll see what I'm talkin' about.
Supplies: Batty for You, Itty Bitty Backgrounds, Circle punches, Scalloped circle punch, Tab punch with brad in center to help hold handle, Ribbon, Corner rounder, Creepy Crawly designer paper, Tacky tape, Googlie eyes and pop dots. Colors: Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Whisper white.
