Trick or Treat!

Can you believe Stacey's last post?! WOW - there are just the best festive ideas!

I'm in a phase right now where I'm really trying to use older supplies, and my little trick or treat project today is no exception. The halloween papers in Paper Salon's Spice collection are so fun that it's tough not to use them!

I'm busy planning what little goodies to send my niece since I won't get to see her trick or treat this year. I decided this card would be right up her alley. I cut the squares with Spellbinders Nestabilities. The stamp is from the most adorable Hero Arts set. I simply colored the image with some Prismacolor pencils, added a little paint and rhinestones to make a great focal piece. For the rest of the card, I did some quick, decorative stitching and applied some Black Stickles on the edges. Since my niece is 5, she will definitely appreciate a little added bling!

This was fun & easy to make - it's a tube of M&M Minis covered with paper! I think I may end up making more of these for my son's class. Once again, I used my Nestabilities for the top circles, and that same Hero Arts set. A little colored pencil, ribbon and voila! A cute little treat that's sure to please!

Thanks for sharing part of your day with us! Happy creating! ~ Jennifer
