Happy soon-to-be-Halloween! My boys have their costumes, they’ve planned with whom they will go trick-or-treating (Nick says this is his last year so he has four friends joining him), the house is decorated, and there is a lot of candy in the house (that I keep having to replenish for some reason). The boys carved their pumpkins, too. This year, Luke (my scary movie fan) did NOT make a scary pumpkin. He made his pumpkin into a little house with windows and a door. He plans to put a rock path up to it and decorate it up a little more.
And this weekend we attended the Anoka Halloween Grand Day Parade which we’ve done pretty much every year since my boys were babies. Nick was in the marching band for the Anoka Middle School for the Arts, and like last year played the quads (a set of drums) while he marched. (proud mama here!)
Do you need some last-minute creative Halloween treat ideas. Designer paper and a simple stamped image can be your friend. These two items can decorate your sweet treats quickly.
Products I used… See below for a complete list of products linked to where you can find them in my online store.
This first one is a Ghirardelli chocolate wrapped with a 4-1/2″ x 1-5/8″ strip of See A Silhouette Designer Paper. I stamped, die-cut, colored, and adhered this vampire image from the Spooktacular Bash Stamp Set.
My second one is a cardstock wrap on a slightly larger treat – a Chocolate Sea Salt RXBar. The cardstock measures 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ and is scored parallel to the short edge at 1-1/4″, 1-5/8″, 3-7/8″, and 4-1/4″. It’s decorated with a 4″ x 2″ piece of Monster Bash Designer Paper. I then added a stamped, die-cut, and colored mummy image on the front and a stamped and die-cut sentiment on the back – both from the Spooktacular Bash Stamp Set.
I recommend using Tear & Tape Adhesive to secure the cardstock or designer paper wrapped around the treat.
After Halloween is over, don’t put away the Ornate Frames Dies and Monster Bash Designer Paper. This simple thank you card with a sentiment from the Magnolia Blooms Stamp Set can be given at any time of year. I added a 4″ strip of Black Scalloped Edge Ribbon peeking out from under the right edge of my 4″ x 2″ strip of Monster Bash Designer Paper and added them to Whisper White Note Card. My swirly frame is cut from a piece of Black Foil Sheet. I don’t see “Halloween” at all when I look at this card.
I hope you enjoyed my last-minute Halloween treat ideas and note card! Thanks for stopping by. Wishing you and yours a fun, festive, and safe Halloween!

MY ONLINE PAPER CRAFTERS CLUB IS LOOKING FOR NEW MEMBERS
I’m forming a new Paper Crafters club that will begin mid-November (with orders due mid-month for December, January, February, March, April, and May). And we are looking for 4 more to join us. The commitment is to order at least $25 worth of Stampin’ Up! product in each of those 6 months. In one of those months, you would reap the hosting rewards (free merchandise based on the club orders). And then you’d also be able to get in on monthly product perks that would be sent to you along with your monthly club cards.
CHRISTMASTIME IS HERE SUITE DEBUTS NOVEMBER 1
A beautiful suite of products will be available starting November 1, 2019. This exclusive, limited-time collection includes festive, floral designs and includes many coordinating products. Click here for the informational flyer which shares more details.
EVERYTHING IS ROSY ON CLEARANCE
The Everything Is Rosy Product Medley is now available for 15% off through the Clearance Rack. Everything Is Rosy was our first product medley and sold May 1–31, 2019. After the sales period ended, we found that we have enough remaining inventory to bring this limited-time product offering back—but this is the last opportunity to purchase it.
