Halloween popcorn slider

Another Halloween treat to share today. This one is a Popcorn slider. These are really easy to make. You just decorate a piece of card stock big enough to fit around your popcorn. I used the Bring on the Bats roller to stamp mine. Then you adhere the cardstock around the popcorn (but don't glue it TO the popcorn). You also need to adhere the bottom shut. I used some adhesive and then to make it look cute, ran it through the paper crimper just a bit (like 1/2" up) to make the edge look crimped. Then you can decorate the pocket anyway you like. I used the cool Happy Halloween stamp from the set Dark and Dreary.

Then you need to make two slits or holes towards the top of the open pocket for the ribbon to go through. You need a really long piece of ribbon, put it all the way around the popcorn the long way, place the popcorn with the ribbon wrapped around it into the pocket and then put the ribbon through the holes you made, from the inside of the pocket to the outside. then tie a knot in the ribbon. Now you should be able to pull on the knot and have the whole popcorn slide in and out of the pocket. Here's how mine looked:

Super cool, right?
Hope you have fun if you try to make these!

I've done this for candy bars. I like the idea of using popcorn. Thanks for the idea.
