A Halloween Pez Treat

Did you see the cute Valentine's Day Pez Holders that Amy Rohl made on Pinterest?  They are just the cutest, here is a link to her blog, Ink About Me, so you can check them out.  I spend way too much time on Pinterest, but there are worse things that one can be addicted to!  

I found these Halloween Pez Dispensers at Target, or as I refer to it, my second home!  I couldn't decide which one I liked better, so I ended up buying a few different ones.  

The pattern is basically the same one I made for the Wizard Lollipop/Cake Pop Holders.  I made it just a little bit smaller so that the scallop circle would fit nicely underneath the Pez head.  The sentiments are from the JustRite "Witch Way To The Treats Set".

I Only Have Eyes For You

I love Halloween, I love Halloween candy, and I love making Halloween candy crafts!  I made these I Only Have Eyes For You tags to match with those scary chocolate eyeballs I found at Target.

The sentiment is computer generated.  I used Nestabilities to make the tag layers and some paper punched eyeballs provide a little extra scare!  I also added some washi tape flags and baker's twine from the Halloween Mini Embellishment Kit to dress up my tag a little.This is one of those projects that started out as a clean and simple tag, but I kept thinking "Oh, this would look cute, I think I will add this!".

I put the eyeballs in a mini paint can.  On the top of the can, I adhered a circle of matching paper and some of the tiny button spiders that are also from the Halloween Mini Embellishment Kit.  I tied a tulle bow on the handle and decided that was it, it was finished!

Wizard Lollipop/Cake Pop Holders

My brother-in-law is a huge Harry Potter fan.  I've been busy trying to perfect my cake pop recipe/decorating skills, so I decided to make some lollipop/cake pop holders.  This led to some Harry Potter inspired cake pop holders.  I'm going to surprise him with this special treat.  I've had several flat tires on my bicycle this summer, and he has always been there to come "rescue" me!

A combination of paper punches and my Cricut, I was able to make these little guys.  I am very pleased with the way they came out and I can't wait to show Ted!

Teacher Pails O'Fun

It's never too early to start your holiday shopping/crafting for your favorite teacher!  I decided that my favorite teacher needed a Pail O'Fun to put on her desk.  This size is perfect, not too big and not too small, to hold everything she and her students need to get through their day.

To complete this great gift, I made a pretty, but simple card, to let her know how much she is appreciated.

Ready to get a jump start on your gift giving, hop on over to my Etsy shop to pick one up today.  Don't forget that I also have a digital version of the pattern for the Pail O'Fun also available for all of my fellow sewing friends.

Stamps:  My Favorite Things-Talk Nerdy To Me and Papertrey Ink-Vintage Picnic
Paper:  Bo Bunny, Recollections, Nennah
Ink:  Memento and Versafine
