Happy Halloween - Classroom Treats

Happy Halloween!! 

Each year, I make treats for my kids classmates, this year is no different.  For my son's classmates, I used out Chevron and Polka Dot Tag a Bag Gift Bags.  I stamped the top with the Halloween Street Single Stamp from the Holiday Catalog, taped them shut with the extra closure strips from the Pumpkin Pie Goodie Gear and added a die cut ghost from the Fun Fall Framelits Set.

Halloween_street_bags

I also made these Candy Corn Rice Krispie Treats.

Treats

For my daughter's friends, I used the Pumpkin Pie Goodie Gear from the Clearance Rack and some refill kits for the September Paper Pumpkin Kit.

Lastly, for my friends who work at my son's school, Tag a Bag Gift Bags with the Candy Corn Punch Art. Photo Tutorial and supply list for the Candy Corn can be found HERE on my blog.

For All Things - Burlap Vase

For_all_things_burlap

Used a snippet of our Burlap Ribbon to create a vase for this card.  Stamped the leaf image in Soft Sky and then added the leaf sprig over it with Cajun Craze.  Snipped the sides and bottom of the burlap ribbon strip and stapled it to the top card layer.  I covered the staple with a bow made from our 1/8" Gold Ribbon.

Bright & Beautiful Swap

This was my Holiday Swap for the Controlfreaks, I used the Bright and Beautiful stamp set along with Soft Sky and Lost Lagoon ink and card stock.  The small grouping of stars is from the Project life Point and Click Photopolymer stamp set and I stamped them with the Silver Metallic Encore Pad. 

Bright_ beautiful_CFThe greeting was stamped in Lost Lagoon on a strip of Whisper White.  To flag the end, I used my What's Up Punch, see photo below.

Bright_ beautiful_punchCF
SequinsFor some added interest, I applied snowflake sequins from the Frosted Sequins package found in the Holiday Catalog and put a dot of Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details in the middle of each one.

I love these sequins so much that I used them on my Founder's Circle swaps, see it HERE.  For that swap, I applied 600 sequins with our Liquid Glue. :-)
