Last year at Halloween I dressed up my back garden all spooky like and invited all the local kiddies in for a pretty handmade bag of treats and a scare :) I feel this year I will get just as many little dressed up callers as last so I thought I would make a start on the goodies I plan to handout.
Last years bags were time and stash consuming I can't really afford a big spend out on Halloween papers this year, so I spend a good few hours looking at tons of pins on Pinterest and found these little darlings. I haven't got a clue who made these originally as the Pinterest link is to a passworded website that I am not a member of.
I sorted through my scraps box and found all the colours of cardstock I needed along with six sheets of A4 brown card.
Digging out my trusty Bigshot (the first ever real tool I bought way back in 2004) and the wonderful Top Note dye from Stampin' UP (gifted to me by a beautiful friend)
I cut 24 Top Notes out of the brown CS
and scored them all width ways, down the centre point. The black line you can see on my score board was so I could easily lines up the Top Note points to the same score line.
I then selected a range of punches
and punched out 50 of each size circle and just a whole ton of hearts.
My first Owl face......... I was a little heavy handed with the glue, but it drys clear so no probs.
I had made a whole stack of them in no time at all.
Here they all are waiting for the end of the month. I do think I might have to make a few more as I have a feeling 25 won't last me very long. But as the only thing I have had to spend out for so far is the tin of chocolates (and they are half price at the moment) I think I can manage to make another batch.
