Halloween Projects~~~

This "Halloween Goodies" line is just too cute. I must admit to an affinity for smiling ghosts...it goes with my love of happy snowmen;) So...here is a new layout using Cookbookin's "Halloween Goodies" papers:

I found this fabulous new recipe online for ABRACADABRA Hats! Is that just a fun name or what!?! They are super simple to make; just a can of Crescent rolls, some pizza sauce, a dash of herbs, a few pepperoni and YUM!

I also whipped up a quick treat can for the upcoming month of October where our neighborhood has the sweetest tradition of Boo-ing one another. You sneak a bag, box or can of Halloween treats onto your neighbor's porch at night, ring the doorbell and HIDE! The point is to NOT get caught. Then, that neighbor "boos" or "spooks" another neighbor. It goes round and round until everyone has been spooked! {The treats include a little ghost sign to hang on your door to let everyone know you have received a "BOO!"}
So...really hoping none of my neighbor are reading this post because here is my "Spooky Can" for this year.
I simple lined one of those plastic paint cans from Michael's with some of Cookbookin's super cute "Ghostly Night" paper {WHAT a PERFECT name}, then I cut a circle from "BOO-ti-ful Night" to cover the top of the lid and finally I tied lots of colorful ribbons onto the handle.
Design team member Joanne made these ADORABLE treat boxes with "BOO-ti-ful Night" paper!
These treat bags can be filled up with candy or money =) They can be given to the kids in school, handed out to friends and family, used as party favors...the ideas go on and on!

Joanne has kindly supplied directions on how to make these little cuties:

Black Cardstock
"BOO-ti-ful Night" paper
1 1/8" circle punch
1 1/2" scallop punch
White gel pen
Lace Trim

Cut the designer paper to measure 4x6, add adhesive tape to all four sides (the side of the paper that will not be showing). Adhere the two short sides together and then pinch the bottom sides together, leaving the top open to put the candy in. Once you put the candy in, pinch the top to seal it, going the opposite direction of the bottom. Punch an image of the ghost from the designer paper with the circle punch and punch the black cardstock with the scallop punch. Adhere those two pieces together. Take the white gel pen and jot dots on each of the scallops to add interest. Using a foam dimensional pop dot adhere it to the front of the treat box. Glue the lace trim around the edge of the bottom. Punch a hole at the top point of the treat box and tie your fibers in a knot then you're done!

Hope this inspires you to get scrapping and don't forget to get your entry in for the sketch challenge, projects are due by the 30th.

Be back later this week with a couple Halloween cards:-)
