Frankenstein Halloween Treat Bag - Just Adorable!

I was actually doing a completely different
project when I chanced on the video tutorial of this super cute Halloween bag and I immediately decided to make them for my adorable nephews, Dustine and Dj (5 years old and 17 months old, respectively) who I'll be taking to a Halloween party on the 31st. They look soooooooo cute in their super heroes costume that I bought for them.

The inspiration for my Halloween treat bag is the Frankenstein box made by ChicnScratch on her video tutorial,

My version is much bigger than the one she made. She made 2 bags out of an 8.5" x 11" card stock. The finished size of the bag that I made is 8" x 7" x 3.5". I used 2 different colors for the front and back of the bag, each piece is 11 inches high and 10 inches wide. The folds on the sides and bottom of each piece are 2 inches. Instead of completely overlapping both pieces together as shown on ChicnScratch's video, I overlapped the front and back pieces only by half an inch, just enough to glue the pieces together, to have more depth to make the bag more spacious. For Frankenstein's hair, I used a grass design from the Silhouette store called Grass 1027 which was one of the free 50 files. I did a little tweaking that's why it looks different. For the mouth, I used the free shape of the week from the online store (pumpkin). I added the screws on his temples. They initially looked like his ears so I moved them higher. I took a close up shot so you'll get the idea on how to attach them. The allowance for the fold was already added to the shape. Instead of just drawing the mouth and the scars, I created cutouts. For the eyes, eyelids and the nose, I followed the way ChicnScratch did them. I used a one inch wide black ribbon for the handle instead of the same card stock so it will be stronger and will last longer.
