{Gearing up for Halloween}

Yes it is my favorite time to scrap because it is acceptable to start EARLY and work on halloween projects. I don't know why but I love to make things for halloween. 

Unfortunately I have no little kids to make anything for, don't typically get as many trick or treaters anymore but I love all the cute files that are out from various SVG companies and I just get so many great ideas. I guess because I love it so much it comes a bit easier. I took a treat holder file and modified it a bit, created a handle and made these adorable little treat holders. 

It would be cute with candy corn or smarties or something in them. I didn't take much time to decorate them because honestly it was a test cut to see how the file turned out. I love them! They are approximately 4" high and 2.5" wide. I used some Timeless Twine in Tuxedo black and Pumpkin Orange to make some little bows. Stop by the shop to get you a great Halloween Bundle for those halloween projects!! Here is the link {STORE}

Sweet job on your treat holders...cute skull and candy corn files. Your nice fluffy bows of beautiful twine really make them special. I love the Halloween colors. I am all set to make Halloween decorations with this twine. I suspect I will be seeing stamps and dies to use this with soon :D I don't have anyone for candy either but I like to decorate. Great job!
