Best Part of Halloween? My complete lack of will power!

As if I need a holiday that is all about candy consumption to get me to eat tiny chocolate bars!  I keep that stuff out of my house all year so that I don't eat it (and yet I still manage to get my fill of chocolate) but every Oct. 31 my kids bring home bags of candy to tempt me.   I do my best to tell myself it's for the kids but that does not stop me from sneaking a little chocolate bar or two!

I enjoy eating the candy just as much as I enjoy dressing it up to make cute little gifts for my kids and neighbours.  One of my favorites from this years Holiday Catalogue are these great little muslin bags that I can use to hold a large variety of candy.  These little bags can be decorated to suit your needs and they are adorable!!

Check out my CASE from the Stampin Connection magazine.  I loved it so I had to recreate it, my way.

 I used Halloween Hello Stamp set for this one.  The ink is Black Stazon, Versamark, and Cajun Craze.  I used Heat and Stick powder for the glitter skull and white embossing powder for the sentiment.   I also colours some rhinestones with an orange sharpie and add those.  I'll admit that little hint of black glimmer paper is not SU but I just loved it!

The bag itself was spritzed with black re-inker and alcohol and then stamped with the skull in Black Stazon.
I used a die from the Chaulk Talk Framelits set to create this tag along with the Decorative Lable Punch. ticket duo punch and a couple of circle punches.  Ok that sounds like a lot of work but I promise it was not!
I also created this little witches broom with a piece of black licorice and some of the Witches Brew DSP.  I have seen these before and wanted to give it a try.  The only draw back to this cute little broom is I do not know a single child and very few adults that like Black licorice! It sure is cute though.
