Trick or Treat!

It's time! We're all ready and I promised I would show you how we dressed up our candy.

This process has to be quick, easy and inexpensive. We started by using the Silhouette to cut ovals from cheap thin white cardstock and scoring them. Then we stamped eyes and a mouth (using Paper Smooches Shadows set - notice that the eyes are slightly different sizes - I put all 3 ovals on one block, so that I only had to stamp each ghost once). Kate stamped the Hero Arts sentiment in orange and then we glued the back to the front, around the full-size nut-free candy bar.






Here they are all ready to go. I hand out full-size candy bars only because it helps me keep count (yes, I'm one of those people!) I have little ones as my back up stash in case we get more people than we expect.


Here's Kate and our little friend Trinity, ready to head out into the rainy, windy but unseasonably warm night!

I hope you all have a fun time - stay safe!
