Crazy for Bats

Did you notice the little bats on this layout?
Here is a closeup:
 These bats are actually made by altering a butterfly punch. This idea first came from the Pink Paislee blog but it is really simple. I used the small Martha Stewart butterfly punch, but really I think any butterfly punch would work. Trim off the bottom wing from the bottom of the body at an angle.
It isn't exactly bat shaped, but pretty darn close. Try this on your next Halloween project!

Oh my word! That's genius! I was wondering if you had handcut those little guys. I will be adding some bats to my next spooky project for sure!

Cute layout! I myself have gone a little bat crazy! I am normally a skull and cross bones girl, but this Halloween it has been bats all the way!
