Halloween Treats

Hi!  Thought I'd take a little break from Lego and post some Halloween treats I made for some of my kids' teachers. 

I used PTI's Favor it box 6 die and the coordinating Halloween Treats and Sweets stamp set and dies.  I have to admit that this is the set that broke my PTI boycott.  Hehe.  I was doing so well not purchasing from them every month but when I saw this set I really wanted it.  Sooo cute!  Though the box is a bit small I think for stuffing with candy for the kids. 

So for all of these, I used cardstock for the boxes and just used felt for the front to conserve (or hoard) my felt.  Plus I think the card stock makes it a bit sturdier.  Nichole had a project using all felt but after I cut an entire one out of felt, it didn't look like it could keep it's shape nicely.  I stitched some of the features on the cat.  And look more googly eyes!

Here's a spider and skeleton.  A mini hand sanitizer from Bath and Body Works fit in the boxes nicely.  The spider is holding 3 small packages of jelly beans.  See, can't hold much candy.  Well, from a kid's point of view, anyway. 

I'll be entering this in Wee Memories Challenge -- Free for all

I miss stamping and coloring. :(  Still 3 more weeks of Lego practice and prep to go.  I will share the favors and whatnot when I'm done with them.  I think they will turn out cute!

Thanks so much for reading and hope you're having a great weekend!

Such cute projects, Eva! Love how each character is a bit different from one another but still similar! Can't wait to see more projects! I know how you feel about wishing you could craft more. I'm due to go back to work soon after my maternity leave, and I'm not looking forward to less crafty time.

OMG, these are so stinkin' cute! And with matching little taggies, too! You rock, Eva! And I haven't ordered for a while from PTI - except for this past release - to get some dies!
