Melanie's Class Halloween Treats

I've been busy making my granddaughter some Halloween treats for her preschool class.

These are your basic matchbook that has been enlarged to hold a snack size M&M's. You could eliminate the ribbon on the bottom but since I'll be mailing these to another state I wanted to make sure they stayed together. There are 30 Halloween treats to be mailed.

The wrapper’s measurements are:

9 1/4” x 3” Orange card stock
scored at: 4”, 4 1/4” and 8 1/2”

After cutting the card stock and scoring I ran the matchbook (that was folded so it would fit) through the spider web cuttlebug folder. The stamp that I used is from a very old SU! set...sorry can't remember which set. I used SU! scalloped circle punch and the corresponding circle punch for the spider image. I colored the spider's eyes with an orange gel pen. Also used SU!'s white gel pen on the scalloped circle.
I love how it turned out and I hope Melanie enjoys handing these treats out to her preschool friends.

Thanks for stopping by!

Post-It Stands

A few more post-it stands for my craft shows. Stamp set is from papertreyink and the designer paper is from Michael's (sorry can't remember which paper company). Acrylic stands I found at WallyWorld for just under one dollar. Ribbon used in my projects is from a large ribbon order from JKM ribbons. These stands are very easy to do and I hope they are a good seller.

Thanks for stopping by!

Teacher Gifts

I have a few teacher gifts today...all have been inspired/CASED from Kerry. When I'm stuck for craft show ideas I visit her blog...she has the best items.
I'm in the midst of working on craft show items. Actually my first one is tomorrow, Saturday October 8th., and of course I'm still working on a few items. lol I will be doing a total of 7 shows this holiday season. I have shows the last three Saturday's in November and the first three Saturday's in December. I will be quite busy.

I just love this stamp set from PaperTreyInk...perfect for teacher gifts.

Thanks for stopping by!
