Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | 12 Weeks of Halloween – Week 12
Today is the final instalment of this year’s 12 Weeks of Halloween series, I hope you’ve enjoyed the ideas that I’ve shared and today’s project or rather projects are for the last-minute makers – my hand is up, that’s me, over here 😉
I have three quick and easy projects to share with you that have been around forever, but still look impressive and are a great way to dress up any treat to make it look just a little more special.
Here’s a group shot of the three different types of treats I have “spookified”. There are witches brooms, sour cream containers and simple lollipop wraps. All these holders use minimal supplies that can easily be substituted for what you have on hand and will have the kids smiling – well, my youngest was anyway 🙂
The witches broom is simply a stick of chocolate coated liquorice (I used the Darrell Lea ones) wrapped with a piece of 2-1/2″ x the whole length of A4 Crumb Cake cardstock.
I scored the cardstock at 1/2″ on the 2-1/2″ side, applied Tear and Tape down the length and cut up to the score line using some fringing scissors – you can do this with regular scissors it will just take a little longer.
I adhered the cardstock firmly around the liquorice tied some Vintage Crochet Trim and Jute Twine around the tops for a simple decoration and finished them off with a punched sentiment from Spooky Cat adhered with a glue dot.
The sour cream containers were made from a piece of 4″ x 6″ Spooky Cat DSP, which means you can make 6 from one 12″ x 12″ sheet. I adhered Tear and Tape along one short and one long side and removed the backing.
I joined the short edges together to form a cylinder and then closed the other taped edge. I simply stapled the other edge closed and covered the staple with two strands of the Jute Twine and added a glue dot under the bow to keep it in place.
A punched cat from the Spooky Night DSP and a sentiment from the matching Spooky Cat stamp set finish off my little containers.
The final treat holder is this trio is a super simple lollipop holder. I have ordinary Starburst Sucks in these ones and what I like about these is that I can make them fit any occasion with a simple change of cardstock and a couple of embellishments.
There a lots of different ways to make these but mine use a piece of cardstock 1-1/2″ x 6″ scored @ 3/4″, 2-1/2″ & 4-1/4″. I punched a hole in the centre of the 3/4″ score line for the stick, folded the holder around the lollipop and adhered the small flap at the front.
I did add a glue dot under the lollipop for extra security but this is an optional step.
The decoration is all from the Seasonal Chums Bundle and I used Momento Black ink for all the stamping and just mixed up the cardstock colours for a Halloween feel. This one is definitely the quickest of the set and a bag of lollipops is an inexpensive way to make a lot of super cute treats 🙂
I hope you like today’s quick and easy, last-minute lifesavers. They’re a great way to use up scraps and magically turn everyday treats into one of a kind, super special seasonal ones – perhaps a little exaggeration there 😉
I’ve really enjoyed this year’s series and hope you have too. I’d love to hear your comments on what were your favourites. I won’t be having a Festive Friday version of these this week, I’ll save that for my 12 Days of Christmas series next month, but I will have a Festive Friday project 🙂
