A Fun Halloween Treat

I'm posting this Halloween treat and a few photos to jump into some last minute challenges.  I've mentioned before that the ladies at work got together and decided to encourage one another with small gifts and treats throughout the year.  We're each assigned one person to specifically bless, but usually end up blessing the group.  These treats were made for just such a purpose and handed out this week at work.  

The orange piece is cardstock cut at 3.5 inches wide and then I used my stitched rectangle die to cut the window.  I scored the piece a .5, 4.5, and 5.5m to create the "envelope".  I folded the first score mark and cut the 1/2 moon shape with a 1" circle punch.  This provides the hole for the treat bag to fit through.  A swirl stamp on the front with black ink created something interested as a backdrop for the tag.  The tag was from a Michaels seasonal kit and I used black modeling paste through an extremely old Sizzix stencil to create my creatures on purple cardstock.  I fussy cut them out since I didn't have a matching die (no such thing back then!).

A little black and white twine and some candies and this treat was ready for sharing.


I just couldn't resist the opportunity to share my friend Kyles fun Halloween creature.  She works at a school library where they are having a pumpkin engraving contest.  Meet the Grouchy Ladybug.  Her take was from a children's book.  I think it turned out fabulous.

I'm going to enter my treat in the following challenges :
