Ghost Pins for SSS Wednesday Halloween Challenge

This week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is Halloween or Halloween Colors. Since I made all my Halloween cards already, I got creative and used my dies to make cute Halloween Ghostie pins to wear! I created a sandwich to make the felt sturdy so there is a piece of card stock between the 2 pieces of felt. For the back I cut holes thru the felt to push the edges of the pin back thru to hold it more securely.

Ingredients: PTI Felt, Ghostly Greetings (die); Wiggle Eyes, Pin Back

PTI October Blog Hop

It's blog hop time with Papertrey Ink and this month we are making tag sets!! Yeah!

I put together a set of 5 tags featuring PTI's In the Meadow dies and Stylish Sentiments: Holidays.

My tags use a technique Laura Bassen did here.  The snowman was the hardest for me because of the die layout but this was a fun technique I must try on a card (maybe a whole set!) soon! I also sprayed these with Calico Shine but it's a little hard to see.

Ingredients: PTI In the Meadow (dies), Stylish Sentiments: Holidays, Tag Sale Dies #1, #3, #4 and #5; Doodlebug North Pole pattern paper; MS Twine; Studio Calico Mr. Huey's Calico Shine Spray Mist

Halloween Treat Boxes

I just adore My Favorite Things' Paper Bag Treat Box die and Peek-a-Boo Die-namics so I am using both for my little halloween treat boxes for my co-workers.  They were very easy and fast to put together.

For the bags with the spider web, I added some vellum to the inside for stability.  I'll put some candy inside a little baggie in each with a to/from tag.

Ingredients: MFT Paper Bag Treat Box Die-Namics, Peek-a-Boo Die-namics; PTI Halloween Prints pattern paper
