Project Cut Files

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

For the base you need a white A8 sized card. Use a good heavy weight cardstock. Cut Sizes = Ghost cut at 3.50", treat bag & candy (icon) cut at 6" boo (phase) cut at 1.50", cloud word bubble cut at 2", Welded ghost includes ghost cut at 3.50", two word bubbles slanted sized at 2.417 width x 1.917 height, and cloud word bubble ct at 2" used for placement of ghost and cloud word bubble.
First cut all the cuts at sizes suggested, make sure to cut two of the black layer of the treat. Assemble all cuts but the extra black layer of the treat bag.
Place all the mat layers on the card, black card stock layer and printed paper. Add a piece of green glitter paper to the bottom of the card cut at 7 3/4" wide and 1 1/2" height, next I stitched all around. I also stitched and cut the handles off the assembled treat bag. Take a small square of plastic and attach to back of extra black layer with glue where the hole is to be punched for the fastener. Bag hole is punched at 1 1/2" up and 1/4" over.
The lever is cut from plastic, measures 4" long 1/2" wide, holes are punched at 4/16" from end and second hole is punched 2 2/16" from the previous hole. Attach the lever to bag and to the plastic welded cut of ghost using the brads. attach ghost to plastic.
Use fun Foam to pop up the top of your card. I cut it from a sheet I rand through a Xyron. I stacked my foam three sheets high. I then cut it strips of 1/4", and placed accordingly on black bag layer. Use picture posted to place strips. you can trim the lever if it sticks out too much. I attached a thin piece of the plastic on the inside of the foam with super tacky tape, so the ghost would slide easily. Once you make sure the ghost slides well, attach the top of the treat bag.
Decorate the treat bag with some twine, tulle and a button in the top left corner close to where the candy piece lever will be. Then attach the candy on a square of fun foam stacked 6 high. You want it to sit above the bag. I wrote pull me on the candy piece. I also doubled up the candy piece to make it heavy duty for pulling.

@ STUBBLETT, thanks! It is a EK Success - Paper Shapers - Slim Profile - Edger Punch - Chain. You could always use a chain from the jewelery findings section of your craft store. I had some I was going to use but could not find it so I added the paper puncher chain.

Oh, I'm sorry. I forgot to mention how much I love this card and the cut file was great! I'm not doing the pull out part. I'm not that bright! Thanks for your great step by step.
