Guest Designer & FREEBIE Challenge

Spooookkkkyyyy .... it's freebie time at Dude Time Doodles !
Not only do you get to get Billy Bat for FREE you will also have a chance to become a Guest Designer for a month! Make your way over to DTD for all the details on how to enter and while you're there, make sure you check out the Dudette Design Team's spooookkkkyyyy creations.
As I do every year, I create some sort of treat bags for my son's class. I'm afraid this will soon be coming to an end as I'm not sure if I can get away with it when he hits Grade 5, boo hoo.

I thought Billy would be cool for Grade 4 so I colored him up with my Copics, applied glossy accents to his eyes, red gem for his necklace, attached some ribbon and found Dracula brads in my stash that works quite well! The bat paper is by Funky Hand.
Of course, the most important thing is the candy. I used small plastic ziploc type bags from the dollar store and filled them up with some goodies. I make sure to punch thru the top of the plastic bag before putting it all together then fasten it up with the brads.

You know, the sad thing is that the kids (well, mainly the boys) don't even pay attention to the wrapping, they just wanna get to the candy!
I will be entering this treat "bag" in the following challenges:
Pile it on - Layer It
Lollipop Crafts - Eyelets or Brads
Scrap-Creations - Unique Fold
Ribbon Carousel - Get punny
Fab 'n' Funky - Bingo (Digi, Ribbon, 3 Layers)


  1. Billy looks awesome in green and purple! Great coloring! The kids will love receiving your fun creation.

  2. What a fun idea! I remember those days of making goodie bags for my son's classes. Your shading and colors are fantastic.

  3. Fabulous coloring, Michelle! Love him done in all that green and purple. What a perfect match the brads are! Great sentiment, too. :-)

  4. Oh wow! Love the treat bags! Billy is a cute image to use! Great coloring and shading.

  5. Great little treat bag! Shame it won't be fully appreciated by the recipients although I have no doubt they will appreciate the contents!
    Great work

  6. Love the treat bag - and know all the kids will too! Very cute!!!

  7. Your treat bag is a hoot! Love it! And you're right, the kids tend to gravitate towards what's inside every time! (Tape a couple of quarters on the outside, and they might pay more attention to the packaging! Heehee!)

  8. Hi Michelle
    Wonderful Creation!!!
    Thanks for joining us at Lollipop Crafts this week.
    Good Luck!

  9. This is such a great project!! Thanks for playing with us at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations.

  10. that's adorable, it's a shame you won't be able to make them next year. I bet that 5th graders would really still want them. Maybe you can make them for some of the special kids that come trick or treating (do you do that in Canada?)
    I love the bat paper, it's a great Halloween project. thanks for playing with us at Pile It On.

  11. OHHH! Super cute--perfect pun! LOVE that Dracula! THANKS for joining in the fun and playing along with us over at the RCC!! And thanks for getting punny with me:)
