Halloween Bat Pouch

I used discontinued Stampin' Up! items to make this pouch, but I have so many and don't want to part with them, especially if they're halloween related. :)  I used a glassine envelope, rub-ons and the bat punch.  Oh wait... I used the adorning accents edgelits to create the scallop along the top and it's not discontinued. :) The inside of the pouch has a piece of designer paper and sticks of gum.  

Bone Appetit Jar

Mason jars seem to be all the rage and I'm ok with that, I think they're great!  My Halloween jar was made with the apothecary accents framelits, spider web folder,    1 3/4 circle punch and the monster munchies stamp set (a must have stamp set)!!

Eat, Drink & Be Scary

Don't you think this would make the cutest treat for a kids Halloween party?!  I found these little orange drinks, peeled off the label, then used black stazon with an old retired Stampin' Up! set to make the face.  Candy corns aren't my favorite but they look so cute inside the 1 X 8 cello bags.  I think these would be simple enough for each party goer to make their own, and they'd have fun doing it!

Wicked Card

Look how fun and cute my witch skirt turned out. :) It's made with the scallop envelope bigz.  I originally planned on just the envelope but thought it needed more color.  I love the way it looks on the card!  To make the skirt, I cut a second envelope closure in black paper and layered a piece of black tulle ribbon between the two pieces to give the skirt a little ruffle.

Trick or Treat Pillow Box Wrapper

The pillow box die makes a great little wrapper for a small candy bar and the glimmer brad gives it the perfect amount of sparkle.  Imagine all the different colors you can use for this treat.

Halloween Boot

I made a boot similar to this last year and still love the idea, so I changed it up a bit this year.  I thought it would be cute if the treat was the witch's leg. :)  I made two boots and glued them together leaving a pocket for the treat. You're treat needs to be something a little flat and wide enough to look like a leg.  I used a package of gum and wrapped it in striped designer paper.  Love it!!

Celebrate Today

It doesn't take much to get me excited. :) When I first saw these straws all over the internet, I fell in love with them.  I finally found them for a reasonable price at Michael's and had to have them, especially because they came in Halloween colors!  I know you're supposed to drink from the straw, but it's so darn cute, I'd hate to ruin it. :)

Cupcake Birthday Class

It's all about cupcakes!! :)  These are the projects we made last night.  I just love the bright colors.  We didn't actually make the cupcakes.  I made them as a treat for the class, but the party hat was so darn cute, I had to include it in the picture. :)

Frightening Feline Favor

Sure... it's not your typical Halloween colors, but it's cute, don't you think? :) Besides not being the typical Halloween colors...when would a cat have a butterfly as a bow tie? :)

Birthday Drinking Cup

These drinking cups are everywhere.  I found a plain one and embellished it with a flower rub-on and  little birthday banner.  It has plenty of room to fill with birthday treats, or this is the perfect time of year to change the banner and give it as a teacher gift.

Toxic Treats Container

Here's another way to use the petite purse bigz xl die.  I cut out three seperate dies to form this little container.  You have to cut off the front section of the purse in order to glue it all together and you'll have to cut a piece of cardstock to fit in the bottom for stability.  I folded down two of the top sections of the purse and left one up so I could put the toxic treats stamped image on it.  What a fun Halloween treat!!!

Summer Smooches Window Frame Purse

Another purse made with the window frames framelits. :) I'm not one to use this much color, but I should more often, because I like it!

Turtle Baby Bib

Isn't this a sweet little card? I made it with the scallop circle bigz.  The two inside circles are 3" and 3 1/2" and the kneck area is cut with the 1 3/8 circle punch.  Sadly the Fox and Friends stamp set was discontinued, but there are plenty of fun new stamps you can use.

Everyday Enchantment Petite Pocket

The large apothecary accents framelit makes a perfect belly band to wrap around the petite pocket. With a gift card tucked inside, this would make a great gift for a friend.
