Happy Halloween!

For this week's Blogger's Challenge, we had to use the Halloween theme! Well, I haven't made a card as I'm not a big Halloween "celebrator", but I did make 75 Teacher Appreciation favors this week for the Middle School PTO! Check them out! No wonder I didn't have time to get anything else done!


I used the new Candy Wrapper Die, stamped it with the Wicked Cool stamp set, and punched out a bat with the new Bitty Bat punch. The ends are fastened with Halloween-themed brads that I picked up from a LCS a few years back. ( I filled the favors with Hershey's kisses in case you're wondering!)

The photos below show a couple of other favors that I did -- I also purchased some self-adhesive foam accents for some of the wrappers that you'll see below. All in all, I had at least 20 hours into this project, with a great deal of the credit going to a good friend of mine that is recuperating from a major surgery, so she welcomed the projects to keep her busy! Thanks Grace!



Now, if I had unlimited time and card stock, I'd probably try to do this for the neighbors too... oh well! That doesn't look like it'll be happening!

Thanks for stopping by!
