Hello my crafty friends! It's another week of Crafty Secrets goodness! And a treat! I am getting my Halloween treats together for this whirlwind weekend starting today (Thursday) and ending Sat. night! It actually started last night w/ our town's Halloween Parade. Oh my there were some cool costumes! Two girls dressed up like they were on a roller coaster! And every so often, they would bend over and bend back screaming like they were really on the ride! What imagination!!!!! Someone else was actually dressed up as a door! Ok! My kids dressed up as a knight, a princess and a dragon. We even decorated the stroller! I had (paper)fire coming out of the front window, however, weather doused those flames! I'll post pictures on Friday before Trick or Treating!
Ok, back to my project! So, if you follow my blog, you know that I post something for ABC Toys and Crafts every Thursday. Well, in preparing for Thursday's craft of the week, I thought and thought about what I could do. I'm tired of making cards all the time. People need to see other stuff! And my husband had purchased a whole tub of Double Bubble Bubble Gum for my cousin for her Halloween treat. Well, she's only 8, there's no way she's eating a whole tub of bubble gum! Plus w/ all the other candy she's going to get! So, I decided to make a treat box for her and just give her a PORTION of the bubble gum! Then, I get to keep the rest! LOL!
So, I made a 2-5-7-10 box out of acetate and decorated it. The image of the little witch is from Halloween Fun by Crafty Secrets. As well as the spider web. Can you see it? I used StazOn for that, and I think my pad is drying out. :( The top of the box features two Marth Stewart punches that you can find in the ABC Toys and Crafts store, along w/ Halloween Fun; the spider web and bat punches! They are awesome! And what's so cool about the spider web punch is that Martha came out w/ a corner punch to complete the look! How nifty is that?!
Well, now that I have inspired you to go to ABC Toys and Crafts to get those punches: www.abctoysandcrafts.net you better get over there!!!!!
Have a happy and safe Halloween my friends!
Have a STAMPTASTIC day!
