Spooky Treats

Each Halloween I create a little something to put on my team's desks at work for a treat. Nothing too spooky mind you, just a little fun.

This year was easy-peasy (which I need because I make 15 of them!) with the help of Tiny Treats Halloween and the matching Mat Stack 4 die (Papertrey Ink) and a great template from Waltzingmouse. Did you ever see Halloween look so colorful and fun?!?!

I think this one is my favorite - I LOVE the googlie eye!

I'm making a batch of white chocolate popcorn to put in little bags that will go in the treat box, but here's a look at one filled with little candy bars.

To keep the tag on the front stiff, I glued the paper to white cardstock (you could also run it through a Xyron machine, which would be easier, but mine is in a box somewhere. *sigh*), let it dry and then cut the die. The little image is attached to the circle with foam tap, as is the circle attached to the die. The circle is stamped on white cardstock and die cut with a circle Nestability. I masked the strip where "trick or treat" is stamped and then highlighted the rest of it with various inks, and a blending tool (Ranger). This kept the strip white so the words really pop.

Papers were Echo Park, My Minds Eye, and a few misc. scraps left over from past Halloween lines.

Thanks for stopping by!
