Jack-O-Lantern Gable Boxes

Just a quick post before I  have to get ready for work.  I made these gable boxes with the Cricut Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2 Cartridge.  Using my Gypsy and Gypsy Wanderings Cartridge that came already pre-loaded on my Gypsy, I added the Jack-O-Lantern face.  Then, I adhered a piece of clear acetate to the inside of the box.  The box was filled with some yummy autumn mix.

The tag was made with a paper punched spider that I covered with black glitter. He/she is adhered to the tag with some foam tape.

Scary Guys

I saw this great scary guy on Pinterest.  It's from Tracey's blog, you can find it here.  Tracey used a Cricut Cartridge to make this great guy, but I substituted some paper punches and Nestabilities.
After I made my scary face, I whipped up a square 3 inch x 3 inch box and then adhered the face.  I made these for the kiddos, this one is for my nephew, Joe.  Inside the box, there is a little black tissue paper and baggie filled with Halloween candy.  I made a simple tag, added a bat that was paper punched and personalized it with an alphabet stamp.

For the girls, I added some tulle and a crocheted flower.

Laura and Jenny came over on Sunday, and we watched two scary movies before the football game.  Then, Jenny, filled a bag with some horror movies from my DVD collection to watch at home.  She is definitely my niece!  I have a picture that my brother's "lady" took of Jenny and I, the caption reads, "The apple and the tree".  I think that pretty sums it up!

Open If You Dare......

Just working on a few more trick or treats for the family and friends.  These little coffin boxes were inspired by the super talented Karli from Crafting With Class.  She even has a link to the Martha Stewart site to download the template, awesome!
I made the box following the directions.  Then to embellish it, I added a computer generated sentiment, some baker's twine, a few Quickutz shapes and paper punched bats and pumpkins.
Are you ready to see the inside??????

Haunted House

Time for another Halloween trick-or-treat!  I haven't used my Home Made Template from My Timeless Templates in awhile, it's one of my favorites, so I decided to make one into a haunted house.
This template is pretty easy to put together, just follow the directions that are provided.  I used the complimentary stamp set from Papertrey Ink, Home Made.  I stamped/paper pieced the doors, windows, and shutters.  I adhered the shutters just slightly askew to make it look more scary!  Then, I added some homemade paper punched pumpkins, a few Recollections Ghost embellishments that I had from last year, and some paper punched bats.  The spider webs were cut out of vellum with my Cricut.  I made a spider out of paper punches and covered him in glitter to put on top of the roof.  He's kind of hard to see as the roof is black as well, but in person, he's very scary!!  The sentiment is from Savvy Stamps.

Just so know, there is candy in the house!

Little Witch Goodie Bag

I can't believe how long it's been since I posted!  I'm still trying to get settled into my new place and organizing my crafty space.  My creative mojo has been suffering lately, so I go on Pinterest for some inspiration.  But, like everyone else who browses on Pinterest, 5 minutes turn into 2 hours!
Since I love Halloween, I decided to start working on my treat bags for family and friends.  This one I made for my Mom, like you couldn't tell!
The goodie bag was made using a paper lunch sack and the Papertrey Ink Die Front & Center #1. 

For the tag, I added some strips of Carta Bella All Hallow's Eve Double Sided Cardstock to a tag.  Then, a little machine stitching was done around the border.  The spider's web was cut with my Cricut and a little black glitter was added for a little extra dimension.  The Pure Innocence Little Witch was paper pieced and colored with Copics.  She is adhered with some pop up dots onto the web.  A few little buttons were added and she was completed.  I tied the tag onto the bag with some dyed seam binding.
Stamps:  My Favorite Things Pure Innocence Little Witch
Ink: Memento
Paper:  Carta Bella All Hallow's Eve, Bazzill
Misc:  Papertrey Ink Front & Center #1 Die, paper luch sack, glitter, glitter alphabet stickers, rick rak, Copics, pop up dots, sewing machine, dyed seam binding, tag, Cricut, buttons
