Frankentreats, Anything But A Card Monday

I've had this tube for quite sometime now just waiting for the right project to come along.  It was some kind of mailer but today it became a Frankentreat for Halloween.  All it needed was a cool holder!

 I began with a sheet of 8 1/2 x 8 1/4 inch  card stock.  Starting with my 8 1/4 inch length, I made a score line at 2 inches, 6 1/2 inches.  I then turned my paper and made a score line at 4 1/2 inches and 6 1/2 inches.  
For the insert, I started with  a piece of card stock measuring 3 1/2 x 6 inches and scored 3/4's of an inch on all sides. I then used a circle punch slightly smaller than the dimension of my test tube and punched a hole in the middle of the insert.  I then made small cuts to the inside of the circle.


(See diagram below project for cut aways) 

Now to add my image.  I chose to feature two Bugaboo images on this project.  Halloween Window- Frankenstein and the Frankenstein image from Mini Set-Halloween Blocks.  A few glittered bats, some ribbon and washi tape and my Frankentreat was complete,  all it needed was some chocolate.  Dark chocolate!  Wahahaha!!!!
