Halloween Treats, no tricks!

I couldn't ever play a trick on the Ronald McDonald House of Marshfield and these treats are headed there: I hope this bouquet of treats brightens a moment or two for the families staying there!


Stamps: Spooky Bingo Bits
Paper: Frightful Sight, Basic Black, Basic Gray, Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black
Accessories: Simply Scored, Sticky Pages, 1" Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, 1 3/4" Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Dimensionals, Cello Bags 1" by 8"

I've been making these all morning and am glad to have them ready to send off in the mail tomorrow. I found it easy to make a bunch of these with the Simply Scored. I just placed my 12 x12 paper on the top, and scored every 1/2 inch. Lickity split! I then cut 1 1/4" Inch strips and turned them into lollies! I have two tips for you--

Tip #1 Make a paper ramp for your candy. It's much easier to put it in with a shoe horn-type paper folded into a V.

 Tip#2: Use a circle punch to punch out a circle of sticky pages to adhere to your lolly center. It will never separate with that much hold!

Happy Stamping!
