Hey Crafty Friends-
I am so excited to be guest blogging for My Craft Channel today! For those that are new to my blog WELCOME. Glad to have you hop on by. For today's post I decided I am done with Summer and ready for Fall. Bring on sweaters, pumpkin pie, and holiday crafting I say! With all the great new products being released, I was inspired to bring you a Happy Halloween Party idea. Let's get started.
Here is a list of all the supplies I used for each project:
Trick or Treat bag- Cricut, CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, DCWV Bewitched stack, Tim Holtz Seedless Preserves Distress Pad and applicator, sheer plum ribbon, Orange Licorice Trendy Twine, black flower, Crystal stickles, purple gems, foam dots, Fabric Tac, black tissue paper
Cupcake Stand and topper- Lifestyle Crafts Cupcake Stand Die set, Sizzix Big Shot, DCWV Bewitched stack, Tim Holtz Ripe Persimmon Distress Pad and applicator, paper doily, Orange Licorice Trendy Twine, Stampin’ Up postage stamp punch, toothpick, purple gems, Fabric Tac
Spooky Candle- Flameless candle, DCWV Bewitched stack, Tim Holtz Ripe Persimmon Distress Pad and applicator, Stampin’ Up scalloped border punch, Orange Licorice Trendy Twine, Crystal Stickles, purple gems, foam dots, Fabric Tac
Now on to how I did it!
Cut the bag on page 23 of the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge at Fit to Page size. Fold and glue together to build the bag. Ink all the edges with Tim Holtz Seedless Preserves Distress Pad. Cut the Trick or Treat card from the DCWV Bewitched stack and attach to the front of the bag using foam dots. In the top left corner of the bag attach a double bow made from the sheer plum ribbon, glue black flower in the center of the bow then a glue a double bow made from Orange Licorice Trendy twine under the flower. Adhere purple gems to the other 3 corners of the bag and apply stickles around the trick or treat.
Cut 4 of the stand bases, 1 support circle and 1 scalloped circle top from the Lifestyle Crafts Cupcake Stand die. Ink all the edges with Tim Holtz Ripe Persimmon Distress Pad. Glue the 4 base pieces back to back to create the full base. Glue Orange Licorice Trendy Twine down the base to cover the fold lines. Embellish the edges with purple gems. Glue down support circle then glue scallop circle on top. Weave Orange Licorice Trendy Twine through the paper doily and glue it to the stand top. The topper is made from an owl image punched from the DCWV Bewitched stack using the Stampin’ Up postage stamp punch. Edges are inked with Tim Holtz Seedless Preserves Distress Pad. Purple gems are added for eyes and double Trendy Twine bow is glued to the bottom. Attach to the toothpick.
HERE ARE A FEW PICS SHOWING HOW TO PUT THE STAND TOGETHER
Last but not least is the Spooky Jack o Lantern candle
Cut a strip of paper from the DCWV Bewitched stack, punch with Stampin’ Up scalloped border punch and ink the edges with Tim Holtz Ripe Persimmon Distress Pad. Add crystal stickle dots between scallops. Glue strip around candle then glue double strand of Orange Licorice Trendy Twine on top. Cut spooky Jack o Lantern tag and attach to candle with foam dots. Embellish tag with purple stones and crystal stickles to the Jack o Lantern face.
