I know there are a lot of you who are super prepared & had your halloween treats made weeks ago, but I bet there are a handful of you who might put things off (like I do) and might need some last minute creative inspiration!! Tee-Hee! I actually made these last month, believe it or not, for my Open House, but put off taking pictures because I had also made some Thanksgiving & Christmas things that I wanted to show you in one swoop, but alas, those projects haven't been completed yet, so I wanted to show you these things while there was still a slim chance of these ideas helping someone out! Without further ado...
Halloween Hershey Bars
I was able to use a 6x6 piece of the Cast-A-Spell DSP to wrap around a standard Hershey Bar. I put two strips of Snail Adhesive side by side across the full edge of the DSP to make sure it would stay stuck! I did a belly band on the first card & used the Sizzix Two Tags Die to make the "spooky" tag on the second bar. I'm not normally a scary, spooky kind of Halloween gal, but I was making these for my Open House and for a couple of ladies who wanted to do a Halloween Treats class. While I was making these, my then 8 year old daughter walked in & said "EEEEK...Why are you using skeletons? You should be using pumpkins!!" Well, at least these skulls are smiling...right?? If you don't like the wrapper sticking out on the ends, the tuck inside very easily.
Halloween Kit Kat Bars
I LOVE making these wrapped Kit Kats! They are just so cute & VERY EASY to make! I made some last year at my Open House, and you can see them PLUS a quickie tutorial on how to make them by clicking HERE . I also have a link to Diana Gibbs' blog where I first saw them!
Halloween Votive (aka...Candy Holder)
This is really TWO gifts in ONE! First, you get YUMMY candy corns in a cute container, and THEN, when you've eaten all the candy corn (about 2 minutes later), you can then use this as a little votive holder! How cute!
I've had a lot of fun using the Spooky Treats Rub-Ons on these projects!
I hope these projects have inspired you to pull out the Cast-A-Spell DSP (that you bought just after the new catalog came out) & make some fun projects! I have a few more Halloween things to show you tomorrow, so stay tuned!! Erin
