Our DT brief for this week was a 3D Halloween project using at least 2 backing papers
Well who does not need a bag to put all there goodies in? And what better way to see your lout than with an acetate window?
There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Card Making Tutorial
To begin I printed 2 sheets of the orange Halloween paper onto 2 sheets of 210g card stock. 1 sheet of the green paper and 1 sheet of the purple paper with the castle silhouette.
Using my Scan n cut canvas workspace I designed a template for my bag which included an acetate window.
This was cut using the orange card. I had to do this twice as I managed to cut the back piece back to front.
Once cut I scored all the folds and glued the green paper, over the handles. The handle space was then cut back out using a craft knife.
An acetate panel was secured onto my window and 2 layers of black ribbon were glued over the join between the orange and green. I only used 2 layers as the ribbon was very thin and you could see through more than I liked.
The purple silhouette paper was glued onto the inside of the back panel and the remaining green paper was glued onto the inside side panels.
The bag was glued together using double sided tape and glue. My rationale was I felt that glue would be stronger but needed to hold it in place while it dried.
2 different pumpkin images were arranged together and resized to a height of 4 cms. My Winnie image was resized to a height of 9 cms and both were printed and coloured using Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers.
These were fussy cut out
and were adhered onto the front panel with double sided tape.
A green and black bow were tied together and glued onto the black ribbon and nuvo drops were spotted over the acetate
