Happy Weenie Treats

So, here is another little batch of fun Halloween treats. As I am getting things geared up for Christmas, I couldn't resist a couple more little fun TRICK or TREATS.
The bats are made from the new square scallop punch. Slit the center and fold back the ears. Add tiny google eyes for an added pop.
I have one more to post.....stay tuned!! As always, if you need more directions, Just Email me!!!
