It's all about the Treats!

This past weekend I held my Happy Halloween Stamp Camp. We had a lot of fun. This is one of my favorite camps, because it is all about the treats! The first photo I am sharing is of the mini milk cartons we made. One was filled wit M & M's and the other with Candy Corn. The mini milk carton is a die cut available from Stampin' Up and is so easy to put together. Instead of sealing the top we just closed ours with a small binder clip decorated with a little ribbon.

This next little treat holder was made by putting two of the scalloped envelopes from the Scalloped Envelope die together. I got this idea from my fellow demonstrator and friend Pam. She had made this cute little treat holder and discovered that it perfectly fits a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup inside. She punched the envelopes with the word window punch to make the handle and tied together with ribbon. I decorated mine with a 3D pumpkin made with the 1 1/4" circle punch. Simply punch out 6 circles, fold in half and glue together. I just love it!

I have shown this next technique before, but I'm just in love with this slider idea! This treat holder holds a full size Hershey Bar. When you pull the ribbon it reveals the candy. The trick is to hole punch the top center of the holder and place ribbon through it so you have ribbon ends coming out the front and back. Place the candy bar on the ribbon and push down. Now tie the ribbon and voila!, when you pull the ribbon it lifts your treat!

This treat sack turns an ordinary lunch bag into a cute treat bag. The base is a regular lunch sack which I trimmed down and then scalloped punched the edge. Next I added an extra scalloped border in black. The bag was run through the Big Shot with the Spiderweb embossing folder. Neat huh? This is my version of the original made by Kirsteen Gill that I showed back on 9-11-10. Did you know that you can run napkins through the Big Shot and emboss them? Wouldn't some basic black or orange napkins from the dollar store embossed with spiderwebs be the perfect accent to your Halloween party? I think so! Anyway, this bag would be perfect for popcorn balls and a little candy for those special little goblins out there.

Have a great night!
