Trick or Treat Favors 2

Just finished making 30 of these cute Halloween treats for my grandaughter’s K class.  Now I need to make another 30 for my best friends luncheon on Friday.  🙂  Thanks to Deb Simonis for the idea.

Trick or Treat Favors 1

Very quick and easy!  8 1/2″ by 2 3/4″ cardstock or DSP.  Score at 3 3/4″, 4 3/4″ and decorate as you like.

Staple at top and then cover with Decorative Label folded in half.

Pumpkin Pie Cardstock (105117), Basic Black Cardstock (121045), Whisper White Cardstock (100730), Tags 4 You Stamp set (Holiday Catalog 131823), Halloween Hello Stamp set (Holiday Catalog 131721), 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch (118874), Decorative Label Punch (120907), and Label Bracket Punch (Holiday Catalog 321153).  *Special Note…use StazOn Jet Black Ink (101406) so you won’t have smudging on the Whisper White.  I used a Glue Dot (103683) to keep the candy in place.

Have fun and enjoy this wonderful season!

Honeycomb Birthday & Card Folio

Brown Honeycomb Birthday

We made this card in our September Class and I was thinking about making gift bundles of cards so I made this Card Folio to store four of these cute cards.

October folio outside

Here’s the cover.  Held closed with Magnetic Discs.

October folio inside

Here’s a view of the inside.  I think it works great and looks good.

This was a great activity for National Card Day!

Butterfly Sympathy

Butterfly Sympathy

Sympathy cards are so important because you want them to show your concern for the person’s loss.  This is a very special stamp set (Love & Sympathy 122797) and I find I use it quite often.
