The weather here in Minnesota has been amazing - still in the 70's but the humidity is gone and you can just feel the cool crisp air! I LOVE FALL and everything about this time of year!
Now you might be easing into fall like most, or diving in with decorations already and stocking up on Halloween candy... like me. haha!
I usually don't get all into Halloween, but now that I have a son in kindergarten, I wanted to think of ideas already for his school treats. No one in his classroom has any food allergies, so we are able to send anything! So I purchased the Spooky Fun bundle from the holiday catalog and made some fun treats to share with you. Well... share in a viewing sense. Sorry you can't have any treats to eat!
This bundle is a really fun one! I actually thought of just buying the edgelits because I love the tree and fence, but you really do have a great set to pair it with! Here are the treats I made:
These cute Petite Cafe Gift Bags are perfect for a chex mix, popcorn.. any kind of munchies! :) They are food safe too!
These Clear Tiny Treat Boxes are awesome too! They are tiny but you can certainly put enough candy in them to make it worth it! Wrapped in the two toned baker's twine, these boxes are a hit!
If you remember the skinny 1x8" cellophane bags that SU! used to sell, you might remember that not much fit inside other than 1 pencil or some m&ms. The new 2x8" Cellophane Bags are wider and can hold bigger pieces of candy (and a few more fun pencils).
These are quick and easy to assemble. You get 50 in a pack which should cover a classroom or two of schoolmates.
Have you noticed the new twine on these Halloween treats? The Halloween Night Baker's Twine comes in a 2 pack (25 yards each) of Basic Black/Basic Gray and Basic Black/Pumpkin Pie. Here I paired the Black/Gray with Perfect Plum Solid Baker's Twine.
My favorite treat that I made are these ghost sugar cookies. I had made these cookies for our friend's daughter's 5th birthday party on Saturday and decided to make some ghosts with my leftover dough and icing. The adorable tags are made with the Tags & Labels Framelits.
I tried to use each "scene" from the stamp set and saved the gravestones for the ghost cookies.
Isn't it cute??
Last but not least, I wanted to show you a card that you could make with this set too. This could be something you send to a friend, or a grandchild, maybe even your neighbor?
I just love the tree and fence! So glad I purchased this bundle. It has a lot of fun options for Halloween but the fence and tree could go beyond just Halloween. I will share another "non-Halloween" card with you later this week to show you! :)
I hope you enjoyed all of these projects. If you would like to get a head start on your Halloween treats, I would love to help you with any SU! need.
Stampin' Up! just released to items on their clearance rack and new special deals start tomorrow (the others end today!). There is a TON of great items on the clearance that I know will not last long!
If you would like to order through me, please use hostess code SM4QQ3KS at checkout. I would love to send you a small thank you gift!
Have a wonderful day!
