Something for Halloween

Happy Friday!!
Hope you all had a great week and a wonderful weekend ahead of you!

It's time for another challenge over at Stamp Something. Our theme this week is

Something for Halloween

I decided to make some Halloween treats for this challenge, as I need some for the school and didn't want to wait until the last minute to start.

I made some matchbooks treats, they are holding a fun sized M&M baggie.

They are super easy and quick to make.
Here's is where I got the idea and directions from: Stamping with the stars.

I used some Bo Bunny and The Paper Company Designer Paper and black card stock from stampin up. The spider was made using a cuttlebug die. I used a white gel pen to add some eyes, and some stickles glitter for some dots on the back. I really wanted to cover those spiders in glitter but my son didn't want any glitter on them and I am using these for his class so I left it off. I adhered the spiders to scallop circles using pop up dots. The band just slides off the matchbook. Oh, and the flourish is a stamp by stampabilities.

Lots of fall and halloween challenges going on these weeks in blog land, and thanks to Karen from Feline Playful I found it easy to play along in all these challenges.

I hope you get a chance to join us this week. Our sponsor is Bunny Zoe and as always there is a fantastic prize up for grabs.

And if you happen to use a Penny Black stamp, don't forget to enter it in this months Penny Black @ All Sorts challenge, as the theme this month is Fall. Lots of prizes up for grabs there.

Have a great day,
