Time for a little blog candy...black and white with a pop of color!

Last day to enter to win this fun paper, ribbon and button blog candy.  Leave a comment on the original post.  Just comment what your favorite pop of color is when using black and white. I will be announcing the winner on Monday’s blog post.   Good luck everyone.

Speaking of candy…do you have your treats made for Halloween?  If not I thought I would show you two that my team made at our September gathering. Both are quick and easy and they would be perfect to give to teachers, co-workers, trick or treaters, and maybe even the UPS guy when he delivers my order next week. 🙂

Cookie Cutter Skeleton makes this package of bones the perfect Halloween treat. www.stampandembellish.com

  • Saw these adorable candy bones at the dollar store and knew I needed to design a treat holder just for them.
  • You know me…it has to be quick and cute,  It’s made with a folded piece of card stock with a hole cut in the center of the front side.  I used one of the scalloped ovals from the Layering Oval Framelits.
  • The Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set and Coordinating punch make decorating a snap.
  • I used the Hand Held Stapler to close the top making sure the treat was stapled along with the card stock.  This product is only available while supplies last.  So if you’ve been meaning to purchase one…now is the time.

Cookie Cutter Halloween clear box of chocolate

  • Now for really quick!  Put together a Clear Tiny Treat Box, fill with candy and decorate!
  • This time I used the vampire, colored him with a Pumpkin Pie Marker.
  • Use the Halloween Night Washi Tape around the bottom of the box
  • Tie with some Halloween Night Baker’s Twine and add a little tag if so desired.

With A Happy Heart
