The Great Pumpkin Blog Hop Week #9!

Have you ever heard the saying "You can dress him up but you can't take him out"? Well, this does not apply to my project for today. I am dressing up a chocolate bar and he will be going out!

I stumbled upon a printable pattern from Woman's Day awhile back and had bookmarked it. You know, this got me to thinking....if I could only have a full time job creating in my stamp room all day, maybe, just maybe, I could get all those "bookmarked" projects completed. Are you like me and have a bunch of stuff sitting in a "to create" folder?

Isn't this a cute way to dress up a chocolate bar for a Halloween treat?

And if you would like to print the pattern, click HERE. You will also find one for a ghost and a dracula! So fun!
And if you look at the photo below, you will notice I added a Velcro Dot inside the wing to keep it closed. The other dot is on the outside of the 2nd wing:

He looks so mischievous behind the folded wings with just his eyes showing doesn't he? The sentiment is from the "Monster Munchies" stamp set and I used the "Wide Oval Punch" for the shape:
