  1. Virginia, I LOVE your tut--very instructive for me that likes pictures and marks where to score etc. I've got all this Halloween scraps/paper around and think this will be perfect for me to give to my co-workers! And quick! Thank you for sharing-hoping that you have more up your sleeve!

  2. I full agree; I am so much a visual learner. This tut is perfect and I'm looking forward to more! Thx Virginia!

  3. I've done a treat bag - but had to alter your measurements because I initially printed the image too large. So now I'm also making more according to your measurements - sticking to them! thx Virginia - lots of fun!
