I know everyone is getting into the Halloween mood so this house is perfect for you. I don't know about you but I prefer "cutesy" to scary. Maybe because we live in a rural area and unless my husband is home with me at night I hear every noise and bump in the night. I was looking for a cute Halloween treat bag on Pinterest and found many templates but then I had a real "DUH" moment----use your Gift Bag Punch Board silly!!!! The "upstairs" I downsized from coloring pages to fit my bag. I made the medium sized bag and cut my cardstock 6 x 11. I have provided the template and punches on a pdf for you. The oval windows are made using Stampin' Up's retired oval punch. The smaller oval windows are the "legs" from the Cookie Cutter punch. The door is from Stampin' Up! retired Label punch. The small circle window is the 3/4" circle punch. Also, after you cut out the templates for the "upstairs" fold a piece of cardstock in half and place the top of the "upstairs" template on the fold line to get a front and back. Secure the upstairs to the bag with tear and tape. The ghosts are made with the wing of the retired bird punch. I also stamped Basic Gray with the Hardwood Stamp on the bag to look like wood siding. I sponged all the way around with Memento Black Ink. Don't forget to add your candy before securing the bag!!! You don't want to disappoint the kiddos!!!
