Stampers Dozen Blog Hop - Halloween

Welcome to another Stampers Dozen Blog Hop and THANK YOU for stopping by! I hope you are getting lots of inspiration from everyone to make your Halloween cards, treats and decor.
I was inspired to make a candy holder because I don't send many Halloween cards. And, quite frankly, I have very few Trick-or-Treaters come to my house. The basic directions for this candy holder can be found HERE on  and I have added photos of my project in progress here too.

Score a 6" x 7" piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2"
Add Tear and Tape to the flap and inside edge as shown below.
 Before taking the backing off the tape, make the ribbon slot at the top of the holder by lining up the slot punch in the center of the center panel and in the center of the right panel as shown.

 Once you have the two slots punched, fold over and align the holes then put into slot punch and line it up as shown below.  Basically, you will be extending the slot on both sides.

 This is how it will look after you extend the slot on both sides as seen above.
For the belly band, score the 2.5" x 6" piece of DSP at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2" as shown below.
 Stamp the cute owl and wand (from Howl-o-ween Treat) with Archival Basic Black ink and cut out with the Boo to You framelits. Cut the "BOO!" out of Basic Black cardstock with the same framelits.
 Thread 19"-20" of ribbon through both slots and even up the ends.
 Insert a candy bar, between the ribbons, down into the pouch, pushing the ribbon down in with it.
 Tie a knot and bam! there you have it. The owl is dimensionaled onto the belly band. The googly eyes, that my friend, Carol N. gave me, were added with mini glue dots.
 Whooo wouldn't love to get this is their Trick-or-Treat bag!?!? 

That is all for today. I hope you will use your creativity to make a few of these for Halloween. Now it is time to move along to Patty Chenail's blog by clicking the "Next Blog" button below.
