Halloween may look like it’s over but it’s not what it seems. If there is candy in your house, stuff still on clearance at the store, and pictures on your camera ready to be printed… it’s not yet over. Take advantage of all the clearance sales going on.
I found this 8 pack of Halloween themed coasters in the dollar section at Target and knew what I was going to make with them…. a few mini albums of Halloween.
Cut some cardstock down to size (these coasters were an easy 4 inches x 4 inches) and corner rounded the edges. I used my Crop-a-dile to cut through the chipboard coasters and the paper. Tie some ribbon (loosely so the book can open with ease) through the holes to bind the book together.
Next decorate and add pictures! You can use lots of scraps since the album is only 4 inches.
My daughters are loved by many and received lots of Halloween greeting cards this year… I quickly eyed their stack and knew they would make cute embellishments. These epoxies were made from a card the girls got in the mail.
I am going to keep my eyes peeled for more themed coasters from them, these were too easy to make!
Hello my name is PJ and I’m a sucker for the Dollar Spot section of Target! Who isn’t? You can find just about anything in that section for your holiday needs. Right now, it’s full of fun and fabulous Halloween themed items! I’m always trying to find new ways to dress up treat bags for my kids to take to their classes. I swear their is a secret competition between the moms in the classes to see who makes the cutest/coolest goody bag! Well, here is my latest goody bag creation. I got the bags at the Dollar Spot section of Target. They came in quantities of 4 per package. I then just added some plain cardstock borders that I punched out with various Martha Stewart Halloween punches. I also used those border punches to make the rosettes and lastly added some tulle and twine that I had lying around.
Halloween treat bags are officially being made, and what a great feeling that is. Candy isn’t always first on the list at Halloween, occasionally it takes a backseat to baked goods. You all know that the normal kraft bags show grease spots or basically any spot once you put food in it. Wax bags or glassine bags come in handy for baked good items. I made these bags because I knew they would be the perfect size for brownies, a slice of banana bread, cookies, coffee cake slice… ok you get the picture.
I am notorious for buying paper so I can cut it up and use it as embellishments. The tickets… cut from a 12×12 paper, the Frankenstein head? Cut out from a 12×12 paper, The witches wart circle? Yep, you guessed it cut out from paper. Do you see a pattern here?
Everything on this treat bags was cut out or stamped. Super easy, super simple, totally doable.
Now get to creating!
Halloween is one of the holidays that I am slightly obsessed with. I have no idea why…other than I love orange. You would think that I celebrate this holiday year round with the amount of crafting supplies that coordinate with this holiday. I cannot help myself this year. I am adding to my ever growing, one time a year, collection.
To the top of the list goes…
I have to stop myself right there… but aren’t they so cute? My goodness!
