I haven't done a Halloween workshop in years, but this year, we have so many cute stamps and papers for Halloween that I just couldn't resist. If you'd like to sign up for my Halloween workshop, it's Tuesday, Oct. 2nd. Cost for the class is $5 for materials plus a $10 minimum order. The projects below are some of the things we'll be making.
|These little nugget holders are not a new creation, but they're one of my favorite go-to items when I need a QUICK, simple treat holder. It's the kind of item that you can crank out in masses! To make this project, cut a 1 1/2 x 6 inch strip of cardstock (I used Sunset or Black). Then, layer a 1 1/4 x 6 inch strip of coordinating patterned paper over it. Score a line across the width of your strip 2 1/2 inches from each end. Fold it up like a triangle. Place a Hershey Nugget in the bottom (I use a glue dot or piece of double stick tape to hold it in place). Punch two holes about 1/4 inch apart near the top of your treat holder--through both layers of cardstock. Tie a piece of ribbon through the holes to hold it together. Add a stamped image to the front of the treat holder. I used the Perfect Fit-Halloween stamp set (B1413, $9.95). I cut the circles with a 1 1/4 circle punch, but you can also cut them on your Cricut. You can order any of these stamp sets on my website: http://christina.ctmh.com|
The CUTE paper I used on these treat holders came from my Spellbound Workshop on the Go Cricut Kit (G1040--$32.95). This kit contains the most adorable paper, an exclusive stamp set, and instructions to make everything I have shown in the photo below--the "boo" banner, treat bags, cupcake liners, soda pop wraps, etc. Plus, I had LOTS of paper left over, so I could make other fun projects!! Note, to complete the projects from this kit shown below, you did need to have the Cricut Artiste Collection (Z1790, $99--and worth every penny)!!! But, honestly, if you like to make Halloween projects, I would buy this kit even if I didn't own the cartridge because it has such awesome paper and a great stamp set!!
|I've seen these M&M treat holders in several places and decided it was time to make one for myself. You can get these 1 x 8 clear bags from a couple of different places. I bought mine from www.clearbags.com, but one of my customers bought hers from www.GTBAG.com. To make the project, just stack M&Ms in the color of your choice (I used their current autumn variety). You want the regular size M&Ms. I thought I could use the Peanut Butter ones because they're bigger, but they wouldn't quite fit. Once you've filled up the bag, then add a topper. Mine is made with the Perfect Fit Halloween stamp set.|
