I didn't sell very many, but I think they'll make cute little treats to give out on Halloween! The first item I made was the peppermint patty spider...I've seen these several places, but my inspiration came from Dawn's Blog...I just love the super-cute projects she posts! The one shown on her site was made with punches but since I was making 40 of them and didn't want to cut out 100s of shapes, I decided to use my good friend, the Cricut. Here is my result:
I used the scallop (blackout) circle from the Storybook cartridge for the body, and the parenthesis from the Opposties Attract cartridge for the legs. I cut mini circles to back the googly eyes and cut mini red paper noses as well. The peppermint patty is hidden between the scallop circles!
The second item I made was the Sesame Street character play-doh. I got the idea from Kerry's Blog and fell in love with these little guys!
They were as simple as cutting a tag from Storybook, folding it in half and attaching to the baggie with glue dots. Then I made the sesame street guys using the same scallop circle as the spiders, and added various sized circles for the facial features. A little ribbon added some color to the tag.
The third item I made was "Ghost Poop"...hah! I found this little poem online and came up with this design myself:
I again used the tag from Storybook, folded it in half and then glued it to the bag with glue dots. I printed the poem on cardstock, matted with purple cardstock and attached. I tied a ribbon around, then cut a ghost out of patterned paper and matted with a larger purple circle and adhered it with a foam dot. That's it! Here's the poem:
I hear that you've been playing tricks,
So listen here's the scoop...
I'm running short on candy treats,
So this year you get Ghost Poop!!!
