Halloween Sweet Treat Holder Class!

With Halloween almost just a month away I thought I would give you some ideas on some of the treat holders I have made in the past along with a couple new ones I found!  These treats are perfect for passing out to trick or treaters, to use as class treats for your children, to use at Halloween parties for favors or as a simple treat to place by your dinners for your family as it gets closer to Halloween!







Witch's Shoe using file from SVG Cuts
My Heart Stamps from SVG Cuts here:
http://svgcuts.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=324

All I did was cut the file, assemble the shoe, ink the edges with white ink, glue the spider on the top of the shoe and fill with hershey kisses!  EASY!!!                                        











This wrapped Hershey Bar was made using stamps from Close To My Heart that I got from Gerriann Reeves Armstrong here on her blog:

http://gerriannarmstrong.ctmh.com/

I used stamp sets D1490 Backdrop-Charmed holidays
and C1509 Magic Potions Holiday

I embossed the wrapper with stamp set D1490
Stamped C1509 and cut it out and adhered it with a 3D stamp dot so it would POP and glued ruffeled black lace on each end!  EASY!





I will be posting pictures of what we will be creating as I make them... in the meantime here is a kit of supplies that I have available for you to purchase if you are interested.  You will receive one versamark pad for embossing, 1 container of Ranger Black Embossing Powder, 1 set of My Minds Eye Lost and Found Clear Halloween Stamps set of 9 stamps, 5 packages of Glitter Stickers with 2 Glitter Packets in each package, and 1 package of Jolee's Boutique Witch's Buttons (16 per package)  All of this with Priority Shipping Included for $30.99!












I have another kit with some Awesome Bottle Caps and Images along with the Mixed Media Inks from Clearsnap that Donna Salazar made!  These ink pads are sooooo awesome!  They are SUPER JUICY and easy to apply.  I use a make up sponge to apply them to my projects using these Mixed Media Inks.  Here is what is in Kit #2:  A package of 12 Halloween Colored Bottlecaps, 65  1 inch sticker embellishments for the bottlecaps, 2 Mixed Media Inks by Donna Salazar- Black and Jasmine(White).  All shipped to you for $19.99.

PRIMA The Sweetest Thing Layout

Who doesn't LOVE Prima and all their GORGEOUS papers, flowers and other embellishments?!??!

This layout was made using the Songbird Collection and was inspired by Stacey Young:




The colors of these collection are so soft and perfect for a baby layout!  Because this project uses so many 3D embellishments; flowers, clay tiles, chipboards, gems and more; it is the perfect layout to put inside a shadow box or other 3D Frame.



 


Genie Stones, Clay Tiles and Flowers adorn this handmade paper banner....




Chipboard Embellishments, Pixie Vine, Chipboard and Flowers are scattered along the side of the    picture....



                                                         



The tool to distress the papers that I used can  be purchased here for $14.99:
