happy halloween treats!

I created this little tin using Close To My Heart goodies (you may have seen it on my mom's blog last week!) I collected up quite a stash of these tins when they were on clearance at Target last year. Below, is another one I did last Halloween. (Or maybe the year before? Funny how the years run together!) For this latest one, I used black StazOn ink to stamp my pumpkins face. It didn't stamp QUITE perfectly, so I used my secret weapon . . .a black Sharpie to fill in the spots that weren't quite inky enough! (Shhhhh, don't tell!)

On the BOO treat can, I embossed the word "boo" using white embossing powder. (supplies: Unity Stamp Co stamps, and assorted ribbons)

The only problem with these adorable little treat cans is that I am forced to indulge in too many of the TREATS I purchase for the cans!!! I have some ghost Peeps that I bought to do some sort of cute project with . . .but if I don't make something soon, the Peeps will be gone. And other than the few pumpkin Peeps in today's project, the rest are GONE. (I had some help from Mr. B, my little sugar monster though!)

The next challenge. . .Halloween costumes for both boys. There are lots of cute crafty costumes out there to make, but what Mr. B really wants, is to be Superman. And his mama is not really interested in the $25.00 costume at Target!!!!

Have a great day!

Those are really cute. But I totally understand the dangers of having that candy around when you make those!!! It is one of the reasons I buy candy I don't like to give out on Halloween.
