TRICK OR TREAT!
Aren’t these scary creatures just the cutest? They’re not only adorable but they hold a delicious chocolate treat. Wouldn’t they make the sweetest party favors for the classroom, coworkers, neighbors and friends?! I hung them on this tree I found at Michael’s and placed them on my entry table ready to hand out to those special trick-or-treaters who show up on All Hallows Eve!
Cardstock: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant
Accessories: Tag Topper Scallop Punch, 3/4″ Circle Punch, 1/2″ Circle Punch, Large Oval Punch, Small Oval Punch, Cupcake Builder Punch, Project Life Journaling Pens, Glue Dots
Treat Holder: The treat holder is made using a piece of card stock measuring 2″ x 7-3/4″ that is punched on both ends with the Tag Topper Scallop Punch. Score the strip of card stock at 3-3/8″ from each end, fold at the score lines then adhere the tag together at the top using Glue Dots. The little slot in the middle of the tag is the perfect size for a chocolate nugget candy which I attached with a Glue Dot.
Faces: The eyes are made using the 3/4″ Circle Punch for the eyeball and the 1/2″ Circle Punch for the iris. I used the Cupcake Builder Punch for the small dots in the eyes. For the witch’s and monster’s eyelids I used the 3/4″ Circle punch cutting the circle in half. The witch’s nose is a 1/2″ circle cut in half with a small dot made from the Cupcake Builder Punch for her wart. The monster’s nose is made using the Small Oval Punch.
Monster: Frankie’s hair was made by punching a scrap of Elegant Eggplant cardstock with the Tag Topper Scallop Punch and fringing the other end with scissors then gluing it on the tag. His mouth and scars were drawn with a Project Life Journaling Pen.
Witch: The witch’s hair was made by punching a scrap of Elegant Eggplant cardstock with the Tag Topper Scallop Punch and fringing the other end with scissors then gluing it on the tag. A few other strips of cardstock were then glued on the edges. Her hat is a triangle with a rectangular strip of paper with two rounded corners made using the corner rounder punch. The hat band was a smaller rectangle with rounded corners. The witch’s mouth is drawn with a Project Life Journaling Pen.
Mummy: The mummy is “wrapped” by using three 2″ strips of Whisper White cardstock that are torn and sponged on the edges using Momento ink then glued on.
Bat: The bat’s wings are made using the Large Oval Punch and the 1/2″ Circle Punch. His teeth and ears are small triangles and I drew his mouth with a chalk pen that I had in my stash.
Vampire: The Count’s hair line was made by punching a scrap of Basic Black cardstock with the Tag Topper Scallop Punch and the 1/2″ Circle Punch. His cape, teeth and eyebrows are made by cutting triangles. The Count’s mouth is drawn with a Project Life Journaling Pen.
