No Tricks....Just Treats....

Hey there, Peeps!  Happy Tuesday!
It's been crazy busy around the Suit House so I haven't been able to get to my blog.  But.....I'm baaaaaack!  :-)

I have another Halloween 3D project for you today.  It's simple but really fun.  I hope you like it.

Here it is....


It's my broom!  Ok, not mine....hee hee but it's a "broom" nonetheless.  This one is made using 2 brown paper lunch bags.  Open one of the bags all the way up and cut down in strips towards the bottom until you get to the bottom edge, leaving the actual bottom of the bag intact.  For the second bag, open it up completely and then cut strips all the way around the top edge about 1 1/2" down.  Place the second bag inside the first and fill it with whatever treats you'd like.  Mine is filled with candy corn.  

Cut a stick or tree branch approximately 16" long.  You will then insert it about 2 inches into the inside bag. Gather up all those strips from the outside bag and secure them together around the stick/branch using linen thread or ribbon.  I used Linen Thread (#104199).  Then you can decorate as you wish.  I made a cute little tag for mine using a new stamp set from the Holiday Mini called "Out on a Limb".  It's such a cute set!  Here are all the images in the set....

Out on a Limb - Wood Mount  123822    Clear Mount  123824


I made a tag using Very Vanilla card stock.  I stamped the little witch and tree limb and colored them with my SU! markers a bit.  I used the "Happy Halloween" greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes and then sponged the edges with Basic Black ink.  I added just a smidge of the 1 1/4" black/white grossgrain ribbon and a sparkly Glitter Brad for a little added bling.

Here's a little closer look....


These would be great to give to a neighbor or maybe a co-worker.  I know I'd be thrilled to get one!  If you'd like to get your very own "Out on a Limb" stamp set....visit my Online Store.  There are SO many cute creations just waiting to be made....by you.  :-)

Stay tuned....I have a darling card made with this same stamp set that I'll be sharing.....very soon!

Have a magical day!
