Frightful H&M Blog Hop - With Blog Candy!

Hi Everyone - I am so excited to welcome you to the H&M Stamps First Design Team Blog Hop!

All of the design team members (listed at the end of my post) have created a fall theme craft for you to be inspired by.

And to add to the excitement each of us is offering a free H&M stamp set just for leaving us a comment!!

For my craft I created two treat containers for Halloween using the Fright Night Set.


First up is this cute acetate box filled with creepy eyeballs (the chocolate, peanut butter and caramel filled kind!! Yum! ) (Edited to add: I got these at CVS. ) You can see instructions for this box here. I used a different pattern for the top and bottom than in the instructions - I just cut a 3 inch square and scored it 1/2 inch on each side - like the top on the 3x3 box on a Splitcoast Weekly Inkling seen here. I thought it came out a little neater. I put eyelets on the punched holes on the cover to add sturdiness and tied knots on the inside ends of the ribbon. The cover slides up the ribbon when you open it.


And my second treat holder is a simple origami fold (or diaper fold) using a 6"x6" piece of designer paper. See the tutorial for it here. It's easy peasy to make - use any size square of double sided designer paper to make the size treat holder you want - and it folds up in just a minute. I tucked a little Kit Kat bar inside mine and attached the sentiment right to it. (It's Fright Night Every Night!!!!)

Now for the fun part - my gift to one lucky commenter is the Sweetly Stamped set by H&M Stamps seen below! How fun is this set with the ever popular cupcakes, cake and pie stamps and these super sentiments to make your cards a snap! Leave me a comment here and I will pick a random number winner on October 7th !


Every one of the Design Team members will be offering their own choice of an H&M Stamp set and you can enter on each blog (only once per blog though please!) so you have 10 chances to win a set!

Please hop over to the other Design Team members below to see what fun creations they have to show you!
