I am excited that I get to be the first one to share some ideas with you! Our teaching days will focus on little things you can use on layouts or make with your scrappy supplies. There won't always be this many ideas in one day...but I just couldn't pick only one thing to share!
There are so many different ways you can create cute little treat holders. I finally decided on two different holders you can hang from a doorknob and one you can toss into bags on halloween night. The doorknob holders would be fun to surprise your children, neighbors or co-workers. The best part is that you probably already have everything you need to make these in your scrappy stash!
Black Cat Treat Bag
Scraps of yellow and pink
Something to trace a circle (like a plate)
Circle punch (2 sizes if you have them…if not, you can still do it with one)
Black ribbon and a large needle
1. Trace and cut a large circle from a sheet of 12x12 black cardstock.
2. Draw a “peace sign” on the back of the circle to divide it into thirds. Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be perfect.
3. Cut along the lines you just drew.
4. Roll the papers into cones and glue together.
5. Punch out two yellow circles for the eyes. Reinsert the circles into the punch to create the cat’s eye shape.
6. Create the black part of the eye the same way.
7. Punch a nose for the cat from the pink cardstock.
8. Poke three holes on each side of the cat’s face for the whiskers.
9. Using the needle, draw the ribbon through the holes to create whiskers.
10. Add a couple of black triangles for the ears and a ribbon to hang it from a doorknob.
11. Don’t forget the candy!!
Halloween Door Hanger
Cardstock or Patterned paper
Scoring tool (optional)
Extra embellishments as desired
Circle cutter or something round to trace
1. Cut a strip of paper 5” x 12.”
2. Cut a rectangle 5” x 7” and score/fold it 1” on three sides as shown.
3. Glue the smaller rectangle to the longer one.
4. Cut a circle out of the top of the longer rectangle to hang on a doorknob.
5. Embellish as desired.
Simple Candy Goodie Bag
Plastic sandwich bag
Cardstock-black, orange and white
Black ink pad
1. Cut a square of black cardstock the width of your bag.
2. Fold the cardstock in half.
3. Create a ghost template by drawing one in pencil and cutting it out.
4. Trace and cut out your ghost on white cardstock.
5. Ink around the edges of the ghost with black ink.
6. Use die cut letters or stickers to create the “boo.”
7. Fill the bag with candy and staple the folded over black cardstock onto it. Try to plan where you will be gluing your decorations so you can cover up the staples.
8. Glue the ghost and letters to the black cardstock.
I hope you enjoy these ideas! If you make any of them, we'd love to see! Just link us to your creation in the comment section so we can all ooohhh and ahhhh over your work. Have a wonderful Wednesday!!
