The Last of the Halloween Treats!

Hi, Dear Friends! I'm actually doing a lot of stamping but it's all Design Team stuff so I can't share it just yet! (it will all start on 11/4 so be sure to come by!) Wait 'til you see what Claire's coming out with next!!!

For now - I wanted to share a few of the treat containers I made for Halloween to sell at my church fair this past weekend that I hadn't posted here yet.

Decorating or making containers is one of my most favorite things to do - as you probably know if you come by to visit me at regular intervals!!

I got these cute little jars at JoAnn's for $1.oo each! They are about 2"x1" and I filled them with bat droppings (malted milk balls in this case!)

The stamps are Waltzingmouse - Wanda's Pantry and Midnight Feast.

Next - I totally, shamelessly copied these fun little houses from Steph I absolutely loved them when I saw them on her blog. (Thank you Steph!!!)

The template is Claire's and is available free at Waltzingmouse (Claire decorated it as a Gingerbread house). How clever of Steph to see a haunted Halloween house in it!!

I made mine so the bottom opens (didn't glue the tabs) - and I slipped a little bag of candy corn inside. The stamps are from Midnight Feast.

And finally - I got these fun pails at Target last year for $1 each (I almost forgot I had bought them - I had put them in my attic and found them 3 days before the fair!) So I quickly decorated them up!
The stamps are from Wanda's Pantry - the bats are Spellbinders, the ghost is Sizzix, the web ribbon is from Sharon's Stamp Simply Ribbon Shop and the saddle stitched ribbon is PTI. I drew eyes on the bats with a silver marker. (I know - bats don't have eyes - but they look more spooky with them!) So there you go - are you in the Halloween spirit now?!!! You've still got 2 days to make something!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
