Note Holder

I am starting on my Christmas Gifts and made some really easy note holders.  I purchased the base at Hobby Lobby.  
I stained the block with walnut stain and tied a piece of ribbon to the top (stampin up).  For each side I cut a 2" square piece of SU designer papers.  For this side I used the large heart punch and the heart die cut (stampin up).  
For this side I used the bird punch (stampin up)
For this side I used the butterfly die cut (stampin up)
For this side I used the Tim Holtz flower die

Best Witches

I made these boxes for my husband to give to the girls at work.
I made the box by cutting an 11"x 5" piece of green paper.  I scored at 1 1/4" from the edge of each long side and scored 4 1/2" from each short side.  For the hair I cut strips of black paper and crimped.  I free hand cut the hat and used the window punch (stampin up) for the band and distressed with white paint.  For the eyes I used the 1" circle punch for the white portion and the green eyelids.  I glued on black strips of paper and cut the eye lashes.  For the inside of the eye I used the Owl Punch (stampin up).  For the mouth I used the label punch (stampin up).  The nose was the window punch.  I added a green pearl for the wart.  The "Best Witches" stamp is from Stampendous.

Senior October Craft

I made Oh Frank boxes last year and revised them and used them again.  I pre made the boxes and punched all the details ahead of time.  I made every piece into a sticker so it was easy for the seniors to decorate their boxes.
The changes I made this year was adding the ears (tab punch) and for the hair I just cut black paper with decorative scissors.  For box sizes see my previous post "Oh Frank".

Easy Halloween Treats

My mom wanted to make some Halloween treats to give to her friends at work.  I designed a super easy project that was easy to assemble.
I used Black card stock for the base 2 3/4"x 4".  I folded in half and added a layer of halloween paper (the Paper Studio) cut at 2 1/2" x 1 3/4".  I created the message on a Word document and punched them out using the large label punch (stampin up).  I added a punched bat (stampin up) and stapled to the top of a treat bag (stampin up).  We filled half with pencils and half with M&M's.  It only took us about an hour to make 80..... She is very proud of the way they turned out.

Halloween Treat Bag #3

For these treat bags I used the Tim Holtz Rosette Die (thanks Rona) I rubbed black around the edges.  I punched a 2" black circle and added a scalloped punch tag I designed in MDS and glued on a spider.  
Happy Halloween!

Halloween Treat Bags #2

For these treat bags I used Stampin Up MDS to create the tags.  I printed the Happy Halloween and punched with the oval punch.  I layered it an orange scalloped punch and glued goggly eyes onto the spider.  I purchased the boxes at Joanne's.  

Halloween Treat Bags #1

I found free clip art on the internet Free Clip Art "Happy Halloween"
I created the Label in Word and added my company Logo.  I cut the ghosts
with my Cricut (Paper Doll Dress up).  I distress the ghosts, glued them to
a clothes pin and added a plastic spider.  They came together supper easy!
