Happy Halloween!

Today's Halloween, and I could have sworn I had already shared this cute treat container with you!  But in looking back I found I hadn't!  So I'm going to post two different Halloween ideas for you today, in case you're scrambling to get ready for tonight's festivities.

This treat container was featured in our demonstrator magazine Stampin' Success, changed up a bit to suit my supplies.  I began with Basic Black card stock, rolled it in a cylinder and adhered both the side and the ends with Sticky Strip.  Before adhering the bottom, however, I punched a hole, slid in a Window Sheet and filled it with candy.  Rhinestones surround the opening for a fun effect.  I used Peach Parfait rather than Pumpkin Pie so that I could use some of our fun Peach Parfait 1/2" Stitched Poly Ribbon for the top.  The zig-zag piece comes from the Tasteful Trim Die and the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  The stripes on top and bottom are Whisper White card stock stamped with Solid Stripes stamp; top one every other stripe is colored in with a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker.  Main image is from Got Treats stamp set and colored direct to rubber using Stampin' Write Markers, then punched out with the Decorative Label Punch and tied on with some White Baker's Twine.

Here are the Halloween bags I made my 3 grandsons for trick or treating tonight.  I simply bought orange gift bags, made a personalized tag and tied them on.

Here's how the whole gift bag looks.

And here's a close-up of the tag.  It begins with Sweet Centers stamp set stamped in Lucky Limeade Classic Ink.  I punched the center hole out with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch.  The Circle Treat Cup is filled with Pumpkin Pie card stock punched with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack circle punch.  Do they look at all like little bitty pumpkins?  That's what I was going for!  I fed Whisper White card stock through my printer and simply typed each boy's name, printed it out and adhered it to the Basic Black rectangle. The Crop-A-Dile punched the hole in the top and I fed through both Basic Black 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon and Lucky Limeade 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon through to tie.  Now I'd better get ready for the party!  Have a spooky night!
