Bring in the Clowns...

I made the clown for a Paper Doll Swap earlier this year... I had two left over and thought I could put it to good use for a Birthday Card for my Father-n -Law.  I love when I have things like this already made and stashed away for emergencies!  We forgot his Birthday... so I needed to make a card ASAP!!!

I can't believe Halloween, my favorite holiday is about here and gone!  I didn't make as many cute thing this year, been busy!!!  The Hersey candy bar wrappers were a cinch to make, and very affordable!  I embossed the fronts using my only Halloween cuttle bug folder, and the spider cut from Doodlecharms!  Happy Halloween!!

Altered Cup

This cup was screaming for Vinyl... I used Gypsy Wanderings and cut the words and butterflies... I had cut out additional words and butterflies, but, I thought maybe this was enough...the cup wasn't big enough for everything I wanted to slap on it... hahahaha... I bought the cup at Jo Ann's with a 50% coupon...very easy to make- I think they would make great personalized gift...what do you think?

Pumpkin Boxes

Using Happy Hauntings- I cut out these pumpkin goody boxes... I cut them at fit to page, which came out to be 8".  I stamped the face since the face for it, was a little "scary" to cut out... and didn't look like any pumpkin I had ever seen before, so these are a little "friendlier" and I didn't have to glue tiny pieces!!!  I put a ribbon around the box, not to keep it closed, as I used the red tape for them, but I felt they needed a little something...

Made these halloween treat bags using Paper Doll Dress Up and Plantin Schoolbook for the box.  These were fun to make!  I love the PPDU/EDPD cartridges... I love the halloween characters on that Cart... better than Happy Hauntings!

Oldie but "Goodie"

I still think one of the easiest and cutest party favor is the "sour cream" container!  Very easy to make, and requires very few materials.  I have made plenty of these and varied them depending on the party or occasion.  I made these for Halloween, with some of last years paper, and filled them with bite sized candy.  A tag would be very cute on these too, but since the paper was so "fun" and busy I left them plain.  Thanks for looking!

"Coffin" up some fun today!  I bought Happy Hauntings cartridge mainly for this cut...I will say, the 3D boxes are tough to size on this cartridge.  I cut it out at 7-1/2" top and bottom, along with the liners for the inside.  I cut a Spider from the same cartridge at 4-3/4 and used my Irock for the first time today to add a little bling.  I embossed the top of box with the Spiderweb folder.  The boxes will be plenty big to put 4+ fun sized candy bars inside them... I hope!  Thanks for looking!
