Halloween Treats!

I just love Halloween! I thought these would make the cutest little treats. I started out with a small piece of black card stock and used the corner notch punch on all four corners and a hole punch on each end. I Then attached it to the bucket with orange grosgrain ribbon tied through the holes. For the scallop, I used the SU scallop punch on pumpkin pie cardstock, then the small hole punch to punch holes in all the scallops. I stamped the spiders from Batty for You on white cardstock using black and pumpkin pie markers to ink them. I had to stamp this a bunch of times... the letters on the wording on these stamps are so close together I kept getting too much ink on them and then they would look smooshy, but i finally got results I was happy with. I punched them out with the circle punch and layered them over the scallop. Then I attached that piece to the bucket with a dimensional dot.

For the inside I put candy in small cello bag, tied with pumpkin pie grosgrain and black gingham and used the Halloween stamp from the Party Punch hostess set stamped on white. Then I used the two sizes of tag punches to layer it .

Here are some close-ups of the two designs I did:

stamps: Batty For You, Party Punch
paper: pumpkin pie, whisper white, basic black
inks: pumpkin pie, basic black
other: grosgrain and gingham ribbon, corner notch punch, scallop punch, 1/16" hole punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, tag punches, cello bags, candy
