How to: Trim kraft cardstock into two pieces measuring 8.5 x 5.5" then fold them in half so that the folded size is 4.25 x 5.5". Crease each folded card one more time, about 1/2" to the right of the fold. Nest one card inside the other, adhering the layers together between the two creases, forming a "spine". Punch two holes in the spine of the "book" with the Crop-a-Dile and tie black ribbon through the holes. Adhere a glittered tag to the front of the card and layer a wood veneer bat and "Happy Halloween" banner die cut over the tag. Add an orange brad for a punch of color. Cut 3 x 3" squares out of three different Haunted Hollow papers and cut the squares in half on the diagonal, creating triangles. Ink the edges of three of the triangles and adhere them to three 3 x 3" squares of white cardstock. Sew just inside the edges of the patterned triangles with black thread. Add stickers to each of the patterned triangles. Write your greeting in the white area of each block, and adhere one square to each left "page". Add die cuts and a tag to two of the right pages and finish the final right page with a photo of a previous Halloween. Then all that's left to do is put it in an envelope and make somebody's day!
