Halloween Treats


WOW! I have to say THANK YOU!

I got some of my first comments on the last few posts and it really made my daze 🙂

Today’s post is a share project.
I helped a friend two weekends hold a HUGE garage/moving sale. She had TONS of crafty things ( most of which are now in those same boxes but reside in my place ). Some of what I acquired were white wooden baskets. I took a whole box full ( less than 50 cents each! ). They are about 4 inches deep have a handle and are about 9 inches long 6 inches wide. PERFECT for floral center pieces. I found some shimmer paper I had from last year and used my pazzles to cut some ghosts, tombstones and pumpkins. Putting those on toothpicks and then making some sucker covers was easy. Add some ribbon bows and voila! Candy, ribbons and washi tape came from the dollar store. Total spent on boxes about 30$ ( 7$ on candy for variety, foam to fill baskets was 10$, 6$ for ribbons for variety, 1$ for washi tape, 1$ for black spray paint, 2$ for creepy clothe and .50$ each for 6 basket ) made 6 baskets with candies and tape left over for a few cards to match.

These took about an afternoon ( I did premake the cuts for the ghosts, etc. the night before while I was cutting some Christmas card ideas ). They made for great Dr. gifts and would work for teachers or anyone really.

I was making some more of Tracey’s Scarecrow from The Stamping Boutique. They are having a Halloween/Fall sale and a challenge here  http://thestampingboutiquechallengeblog.blogspot.com and came up with this fun card. I used some left over Rare Oddities from Tamra at Country Crafts Creations https://www.facebook.com/tammyscountrycraftcreations?fref=ts
and cut him out. I gave him a green face because I think it’s a scarecrow dressed up as Frankenstein. When I showed the card to my son he said Franky is dressed as a scarecrow. I will you decide which way it is 😛


The bat, pumpkins, web and little guy are all cut out with pazzles, BUT you could print the image then cut it apart, trace and cut him out with scissors. One of the things I love most about this image is how easy it is to use, both to color and cut. The paper is recollections Halloween from Michael’s.

No matter what you are making have fun.

Thanks for stopping in and spending some time here.
