Creepy, Crawly Halloween Card

Hope your Halloween celebration is as festive as this guys!  Happy Halloween! 🎃

Skull Pouch

Why not take one small treat and make it look like so much more? Create a simple pouch out of a 6" x 6" piece of cardstock then add shredded tissue paper as the filler. You can embellish it as much or as little as you choose. Now that small treat doesn't seem so small after all. 😉

Scary "Treets"

Scary "treets"! Play on words, what do you think? You know...tree..."treets". 😏 I guess that's beside the point because the only thing anyone cares about is the candy bar inside! Am I right? 😊

Eat, Drink & Be Scary

Because I have such a love for all things Halloween, I purchased a die that allows me to make these great spider web cupcake wrappers. It's too bad I don't love making cupcakes. 😆  I guess I'll have to think of other creative ways to use it. 😀 Any ideas?

Mummy Bag

This little guy, or should I say gal is a sweet little addition to my striped Halloween bag, especially with her jeweled eyes and orange bow. I used my Sizzix, Bag w/Scallops to create the bag.  Because the side pieces on the die are separate from the front and back piece I was able to use two different types of paper. I've always thought with so many pieces it made the box more cumbersome to assemble, when all along I should've thought it gave me more options. "If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."- Wayne Dyer 😊

Trick Or Treat Baker's Box

Why did Stampin' Up! have to retire the Baker's Box Thinlits? It's adorable, easy to assemble and holds plenty of goodies. 😋 I just love the bright colors on this box, don't you?! I especially like the little bit of sparkle on the tag.

Trick Or Treat Card

Everything on this card was suppose to be used on other Halloween projects, but for one reason or another didn't work out. Lucky for me, they all came together to create this great little card! Love when that happens!

Spider Bag

As festive as this little bag looks, it kinda creeps me out! The spiders are spooky on the bag, but that's as far as I prefer to be spooked by spiders.  How about you? 🕷

Boo Treat Tube

This turned out cute and was fun to make. I used a 1 1/2" x 4 1/2" piece of polka dot paper and scored it at 1/2", 1 1/2", 3" and 4".  I used my 3/4" circle punch to create two holes for my treat tube to slide through.  I used letter dies to create "BOO", but you could use stickers. It definitely needed the black and orange twine and ribbon to make it pop. I think these could be made for Christmas by substituting the colors and changing the word to "JOY". 

Bloody Good Halloween

This bloody good treat couldn't be any easier.  I created a fold over top for the cello bag. The blood drip was created with my Martha Stewart, Drippy Goo Edge Punch and red paper, then a small "Happy Halloween" stamped image to bring it all together. 

Witch Gable Boxes

I've heard about fun witch parties women have for Halloween.  I hope to have on or be invited to one someday.  In the meantime, I created these sweet witch boxes that would be great for one of those parties or to fill with treats for friends, neighbors or co-workers.  You can find them in my Etsy shop.

Halloween Crate

Isn't this mini crate bright and cheerful?  All you need is a gable box and a paper straw.  You simply cut the front and back handle pieces off the gable box, leaving the two sides.  I punched a small hole in each side for my straw to slip through.  Each gable box style is a little different, so you may not need to punch the holes.  Don't you think this crate can be designed for any holiday?

Eeeek Treat

More Frights & Delights!  Here's the second alternate project I made with my September 2018 Paper Pumpkin.  I had leftover Yummie Mummies Chocolates from my previous post (Coffin Treats) so I placed a few in one of the spider web cello bags, then sealed it closed with tape.  I punched a hole in each end of a tag topper, wrapped it around the cello bag and tied it closed.  The eeek and bat fit nicely on top.  I added rhinestone eyes to the bat for a little sparkle.

Coffin Treats

I only get to use my coffin die during Halloween season, so I always plan on creating a little something.  When I stumbled on these Yummie Mummies Chocolates at Dollar Tree I knew they'd be perfect for my coffin die and they were! The die creates a coffin box, but I altered it to create a treat pouch. Spooky cute, right?!

Truly Thankful Gift Bag

I used several papers and a couple different sizes of leaves to create a sweet fall bunch, then attached it to an embossed bag and bag topper. The sentiment on the tag is from the September 2015 Paper Pumpkin, Wickedly Sweet Treat stamp set.  I sell the embossed bags and bag toppers in my Etsy shop.  You can find the link in my menu. These would make the sweetest party favors for a Fall or Thanksgiving table.
