Pals September Blog Hop - "Halloween and Fall"



You've likely hopped over from Jeanne Norris at My Creative Impressions, I'm stop number TWO on the Pals Hop and I'm glad you hopped in!

I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for Fall and Halloween paper projects from the Stampin' Pretty Pals! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you'll be back on track!


My project for this month's Pals Blog Hop is a Halloween-themed treat favor. I began with a Frightful Sight designer series pattern that was die cut in my big shot using the Top Note Die. I cut it down the middle length-wise, then inserted each side into a folded Old Olive Top Note die cut.I wrapped just the front with a Basic Black 3/8" grosgrain ribbon and knotted it.

I added the sentiment from Grateful Greetings using Stampin Write markers: Basic Black and Cajun Craze. My tags are Jewelry Tags that are decorated with a tiny pumpkin from one of the prints on the Frightful Sight designer series paper and "Boo!" from Tiny Tags stamp set. They aretied on with Linen Thread. The left side of the treat cover has a punched out spider (Frightful Sight) that is set off-center of a Basic Black mat.



Inside is an individually-wrapped, chocolate dipped Biscotti! YUM.

I hope you enjoyed looking at my project! Please hop along for more inspiring ideas from Melanie Collins at Oops A Daisy, stop number THREE on the September Pals Hop! Thanks for "hopping" by!
