Halloween Nugget Holder

CASEd this cute little nugget holder from my upline Lorri Heiling and I just ran with it to create some other little versions of the holder.  Thank you Lorri for the great idea!  I can't wait to change it up for other holidays.

I had some extra ghosts and moon's cut out from a previous workshop and thought this would be a great way to use them up.  I also have LOTS of googly eyes and love using them where ever I can.  Seems they are most usable at Halloween time!

Cut a strip of card stock 2" x  8 1/2" and score it at 3 1/2" and 5".  Punch each end with the Scalloped Tag Topper and you're ready to go!

Cover the nuggets with a strip of DSP 3" x 1" and wrap around the nuggets attaching with a glue dot.  I also used a glue dot to hold the candy in place inside the card stock.


Do you see the damage on tis one?  This is thanks to little Miss Kitten who loves to hang around when I'm crafting.  Apparently I made her mad earlier when I scooted her away from a straw that was off limits and the next thing I know, she's chewing on this!  Grrr.... lol  She can be such a little brat!

Oh well, it's not the first time one of the kitties in the house has pierced one of my projects!  LOL

Thank you for looking in today!  I hope you have fun making some of these cute holders.

Petite Cafe Window Bag

Have you spotted these great little Petite Café Gift Bags in our Holiday Mini yet?  You probably have and didn't give them a second though, right?
Well, take a look at this!  Using the Fun Fall Framelits Dies (135856) and Window Sheets (114323) you can make these bags even better!
Want to know how to make this, then keep scrolling.

Begin with the Petite Café Gift Bag (135826) and Gorgeous Grunge .  For this bag I stamped with Pumpkin Pie.

Open the bag and place your framelit inside with a piece of washi tape to keep it from moving around.

Remove the framelit and you're ready to put in your window sheet.

I attached mine with Tombo glue because I figured it would be much easier than trying to pull off the strip from the Sticky Strip.

Here you can see the reflection of the window sheet inside.

Decorate as desired and fill it with your favorite treats!  These great little bags are food safe, so no worries on putting  your food right inside!

Here's one using the little leaves from the Fun Fall Framelits.  I didn't fill this bag, but think how great it would look with some mixed nuts or seeds!  Stamped with Gorgeous Grunge and the leaves from Fall Fest.

Here's a close up of the leaves cut out. 

For this bag, I thought it would be even more fun to cover the front of the bag with the cute ghosts from the Motley Monsters DSP and then cut out the ghost from the framelits set.

I added some googlie eyes instead of stamping them.

Here's all three of them.  I think I'll be making more of these!

Thank you for looking in today.  Have a great weekend!

Gorgeous Grunge Strikes Again

I've been needing some multi-purpose cards to have around that are ready to stamp with a sentiment in a moments' notice, so here is what I came up with.

Gorgeous Grunge strikes again!

Using Flower Shop and Petite Petals along with their punches, these cards came together very quickly and can be used for just about any occasion when I'm in a pinch for a special card.

The card can even be turned up portrait style instead of landscape for a little change up.

Add some pretty sequins to match the In-Colors and you have the perfect little bit of bling!

Thank you for stopping in today to check out my blog.  It's Friday EVE and the weekend is almost here!  If you see anything here you'd like to add to your stamping stash, just click on the picture below and you will be shopping in my store in no time at all!
