Halloween Bookworm Bookmark Treat Bag and Halloween Contest

 Here is the second version of a magnetic bookmark treat bag.  Like the last one, I used cardstock with kraft paper inner core so that the words could be embossed (with Sizzix folder) and sanded to highlight.  I had two jokes going on with this treat bag.  The mouse in the worm costume seemed perfect to portray a bookworm on a bookmark. Funny? The other humorous (well, I think it's funny) part is that because the back of the bag looked like a tombstone, I added a die cut (Spellbinders) wrought iron fence and the embossed word, 'forever'. The stenciled moon (Viva creme paint) was the finishing touch on the spooky back which contrasts with the cute front.
 The old House Mouse Halloween set also had mouse footprints so I couldn't resist stamping them on the back of the bookmark. As with the last bookmarks, the magnets were taped between the layers of paper. Okay, this is probably the last of my Halloween projects for this year.  I think I am ready for trick-o-treating.  Oh yes, Contest time!  If you can guess how many trick-o treaters came to our house last year I will send you some cool prizes. You have until midnight Oct. 30, 2014 to send in your guess by commenting on this post.  If you win, you will have to send your mailing address to my email address. The first one to guess the right number or the closest guess will win. Good Luck!

Loved all of your Halloween projects. I was kind of lazy this year, so I'll have to keep the "inspiration" until next year. Have no idea on the number of trick o' treaters, so I'll just guess 31. :)

Really like the magnetic bookmarks. My guess is 139 people.
