Bitty Boos Too Treats


Oh, I just couldn't resist this set, Bitty Boos Too.... especially since you can get it for 30% off until the end of September! Practically free baby!! I love Halloween stuff, but it needs to be quick and easy or it just doesn't get done.

These little matchbook candy holders are fun. I've done them for Valentine's Day too. The kids always love them and they are very easy. Just toss the matches (or put them all in a zip lock bag and put them away for emergencies), cover with some designer paper (don't forget to add a bit of paper in the inside bottom so when you take the chocolate out, it matches). You can cover the candy bar too! This set is perfect for those sweet little treats. Use the 3/4 inch square punch to punch out your stamped image. Then, cut a piece of Only Orange 1 x 1, then use the 1 1/4 inch square punch for the black. Add some ribbon and you are good to go. I took the inside box part out and rubbed the ends in the basic black ink pad, but you can add some paper there too if you want.

The card is also really easy. Cut your card stock 4 1/4 by 8.5, score at 4 1/4. Trim 3/4 off the end. Cut your designer strip of paper 1 x 4 1/4 and add to the inside edge. Use the slit punch for the closure. I had to add a Jumbo eyelet.... because I'm addicted to them.

Here is the recipe:

Stamps:
Bitty Boos Too, All Holidays, Flannel Plaid (my favorite)
Paper: Only Orange, Basic Black, Whisper White, Creepy Crawly DS Paper
Ink: Basic Black, Only Orange, Pumpkin Pie (background ink)
Other: 3/4 Square Inch Punch, Jumbo Antique Brass Eyelets, Crop-a-dile, Black Gingham Ribbon, Scor-Pal.

These little snack size popcorn pulls have been around forever, but they are fun and easy too. Especially with the Creepy Crawly DS Paper!! Just pull on the ribbon and up comes the popcorn pack! Always a big hit. You can do the same with regular size Hershey bars... or any size candy for that matter. Kids always freak out and think you are magic when they pull on that ribbon.

Fun stuff!! Now, hurry and take advantage of those 30% sets before time runs out!!

Have a super day! Thanks so much for all the nice comments... you are all too sweet!
