Halloween Popcorn Sleeve

Here is a nice gift you can make for Halloween or anytime of the year.
I am chuckling to myself how shocked I am that I made something without bling!
The first layer (6 x 9 1/2) just wraps around the microwave popcorn bag and you want to adhere it with red sticky tape, so it doesn't come undone. The top is the same as making a card front - but at 6x4 (I think) - instead of 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 - so you really don't have to do much adjusting to your layout. You can use any image or sentiment! I just typed "Just Popping By to wish you a Happy Halloween!" into a Word document and used a cute font (a free font download from Creating Keepsakes). Then I stuck white linen in my printer and printed it out.

Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, White Linen, Black Linen, and Black and White paper by "me and my big ideas" in Mambi from Michael's
Stamps: Hero Arts "Happy Owl-oween" (but, NOT the sentiment...that was printed out on my printer)
Ink: Black Stazon
Punches: Wide Oval and Scallop Oval (Stampin Up)
Ribbon: American Crafts - I bought this at Archiver's and now it is all gone and I could kick myself for not getting two!
Other: POPCORN! (stuffed inside the sleeve)
