Halloween Treats

This year at the Stampin' Up! Convention one of the demonstrators showed us how to make the cute little Candy Wrapper die long enough to put a full sized candy bar. I was super excited about this and couldn't wait to try it out.

Well it took me a couple of months but I finally made one. When planning for Stamp Club this month I knew I wanted to do Halloween stuff and what is better than a cute way to give candy. Last Tuesday I waited for the UPS man to deliver my SU! order and when I heard him pull up I was so excited, I waited and waited for him to knock but he never did and then I heard him drive off. What in the world! I grabbed Malachi and put him in his car seat and chased after the UPS man. I know, crazy huh? When he finally stopped and I asked about my package he told me he didn't have my package and it must have ended up on the wrong truck. I was so bummed. My Halloween DSP was in that package and I knew that I wasn't going to have time with in the next couple of days before club to work on projects.

I had no choice other than be creative, so I made my own Halloween paper by stamping images from the Spooky Bingo Bits Stamp Set. I made two candy wrapper boxes because I wanted everyone to see the difference in size. I ran by the store and the butterfingers just looked so yummy so I bought a couple of them to fit in my boxes. Now only one of them made it in the samples and the other one lets just say, it was delicious!
