Candy Bar Wrappers

Who wants chocolate?  Here are some candy bar wrappers that I made tonight.  The papers are from a Recollections pack from Michaels.  The "Witch Way to the Candy" and the "The Boo Crew" stamps are Cardz TV stamps from my wonderful friend Mary over at Cardz TV.    She is taking pre-orders for three new stamp sets!  Can't wait!  The "Have a Spooktacular Halloween" stamp and the "Just Batty About Halloween" stamps are from Michaels. (last year)  The ribbons are from Michaels as well.  I have been having so much fun making Halloween cards and candy boxes and it's only September 29th!  Hope everyone had a great day.  Please leave me some love.  If you are not a follower yet, please become a follower.   I would love to have you!   Thanks for stopping by

Halloween Candy Boxes

Here are some Halloween treat boxes I made.  The papers are from different Recollections packs.  The ribbons are from Michaels.  The stamp is from last years $1 stamps from Michaels.  The spider is a Studio G mini punch.  The box is from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More.  They were cut at 3 1/4 inches with the Blackout feature on to fit the length of the Hershey mini bar.  I found there was room on the side so I put a couple of Hershey Nuggets.  They all fit perfectly together.  I love them!  I'm thinking of making about 30 for my daughter's 3rd grade class.  Hope everyone is having a great Monday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Halloween Door Hanger

I know Halloween isn't for a while but I wanted to try a large Rosette.  It measures about 8 3/4 inches in diameter.  The paper is from a Studio G pack I found at Walmart for .97!  (Thanks for the info Mary!  She had a video of the great things she found at Walmart by Studio G and all the things were  .97!  Ribbon, stamps, paper packs & more!)  Anyway, the scallop circle and layers were cut from Elegant Edges at 6 inches.  Hello Kitty is from the Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge, and all layers were cut at 2 1/4 inches.  The sentiment is from Kristal Andrews new stamp set Winter Wishes that I won in a giveaway!  (Thanks SO much Kristal!)  The little bats are from a Studio G mini punch for the  .97 bins at Walmart.  In the bottom picture I added little black and purple bat confetti.  I think I will make one for fall next.  Here's a link to Kristal's blog:  They are so much fun!  Hope you all are having a safe and fun Labor Day weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!
