You would start out with a square or rectangle on the paper for the house, right? Then you would add a triangle on top for the roof, is that how you would draw a house? That’s how I did it, and still do!
That is exactly the pattern for these envelopes. But use more of a rectangle than a square for your base. It’s that easy.
Toilet paper rolls and glow sticks? Well, yes, if you want to scare all of the cute little trick-or-treaters. Of course you do. Just hide them in your bushes, shrubs and trees, and watch as your glowing eyes terrorize the neighborhood.
