I was out of town on a crafting retreat this past weekend. It was a nice get-away, but I didn't get as much done as I normally do. Sigh.
I DID however create a fun treat that my boys can help make for their classmates for Halloween!
I used the September My Paper Pumpkin kit: the orange sequins, the tangelo ink, the skull & crossbones sticker, and the tree stamp for the blood vessels in the eyes, card stock: black, tangelo and vanilla, staples colored green with a Blendabilities marker, the computer for printing the words on the tangelo card stock, a sponge and white craft ink, and adhesives: glue dots and SNAIL.
See the supply list below for exact products linked to my online store. The Paper Pumpkin kit – Boo-tiful Bags – was from September, but if you are or become an active subscriber (by clicking here or by purchasing and redeeming a prepaid subscription), you can order this kit as a refill kit right now (without the stamps and ink). Your eyeballs wouldn't look blood shot, but they'd still be spooky!
I want my boys to help me make these, so I did most of the work. I punched out all the vanilla and black circles, stamped all the "blood vessels", printed and cut the orange and black card stock and prepped the staples, candy and stickers. This week while we are decorating our house, I'll pull these supplies all out and we can get it done while they are in the decorating spirit.
I'll have to be sure to get extra candy, though. My boys need a little bribery to create with me. They love to be outside, and the weather is supposed to be pretty nice in the coming days.
The black card stock measures 8-1/2" x 2-3/4". You can get 4 from a full 8-1/2" x 11" sheet. We'll be putting Mike and Ike Mummy Mix candies in ours, but any flat "baggie candy" should work.
