Halloween Treats and Cool Colors
Just a quick note on how well the halloween M&Ms match Stampin' Up! colors. (Lovely Lilac, Kiwi Kiss, Only Orange and Basic Black). I've been saving these wine bottles for ever and didn't really know what I was going to do with them. They make lovely candy-holder-decorations.
I've just taken crimped black paper and lightly rubbed a silver ink pad over it to give it a metallic-grungy look. Layered on colored card stock, ribbon and super long twist ties (from toy packaging - again one of those things that looked like something could be done with, so saved...). Little medallions were made with the Stampin' Up! "Batty for you" set and dangle from a loop made with the twist tie. Topped with cork stoppers from the craft store and voila! Very cute Halloween themed decoration.
What a great treat to make for a halloween nut you know! The trick will be not eating all of the candy yourself.
More halloween themed crafts in the works...
