Halloween Treats!

I've had to slow down a little bit as my pregnancy nears the end!  It will be nice to breath again soon even if it does mean getting up at 2am and then again at 4am. :)

But Jane has two Halloween parties scheduled and so I had to get those ready in case I have a baby.

See the final product and the best thing is that they are super easy and SO cute!

These were created with Stampin' Up (SU) products except for the orange paper twine that I bought at the dollar store!

Here's the list of materials you'll need:

- 1"x8" cellophane bags (SU discontinued but whatever you can fine)
- Punches of your choice (SU small oval & scalloped oval)
- SU Every Little Bit stamp set
- SU Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set
- SU Pumpkin Pie & Basic Black inks
- SU Frightful Sight paper
- stapler, pop dots and glue runner
- Candy of your choice but candy corn looks fabulous!

Here's the quick instructions:

1. Fill the cellophane bags with candy
2. Stamp and punch your ovals (one small oval and two scalloped ovals).  Take one scallop oval and wrap the twine around the top.  Once it looks the way you like it then staple it on the top of the cellophane bag.
3. Take the second scalloped oval and with your glue runner adher it to the back of the scallop oval. This is covering up the twine and the staple.
4. Then put pop dots on the front and apply your stamped small oval.
5. Unravel the paper twine to give it a "antannae" look. I found the paper twine at the dollar store - I am sure you'd fine some out there. Check out the children's craft supplies.
6.  I edged the scalloped and small ovals with black ink to give it a dusty apperance.

Happy Halloween!
