It's Halloween, a time for fun, a time for treats, for everyone! The eyes were created with circle punches and the nose was a punched heart. This card is easy to produce for a Halloween party.

I came across this great idea from Paper Smooches to create a 3-D effect for banners. First decide what length you want your banner to be. Next use a score pal and score each end of the banner. Notice the score lines are 1/4 inch apart. I really like this idea!

Many of us has heard the saying, "Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat." Today's project is a cute bag with a pocket holding the gift tag. Of course the Boo Bites (chocolate) are inside.
Challenges I participated in: Get Inky #14 Fall Colors (W), Imagination-Crafts Challenges #4 Halloween (W), Lawnscaping #67 Pattern Paper (W), Make it Monday #161 Anything Goes (M), My Craft Spot #114 Trick-or-Treat (M), Stamp & Create October Challenge Fall/Halloween (M).
Today's card is called a "Flap Fold" card. I created this Halloween card using this cool fold. I love the way this card came together using paper, stamps, glitter, a foam bat, rhinstones & a embossing folder.
Would you like to create this style of card? Here's a link to a video showing you how.
I love when you buy one punch but, come up with other ways to use it use it. Today's post is highlighting the SU Decorative Label punch. I came across these and wanted to share with my crafty friends! If you know of other ways to use this punch please share the link in a comment post.

I love anything Halloween. Do you have punches? Do you wonder what you could make with all of them? Well this post is for you. Start by gathering your SU punches: wide oval, large oval, small oval, scallop oval, circle, owl punch, modurn label & bat punch. The stamp set was SU "Halloween Bash". To make the cut out on the card, frist measure in 3 inches from the right side. Next, measure down 1 1/2 inches from the top of the folded edge. You will be cutting off the right corner. This is a card I would not mass produce!

Halloween is just around the corner. I enjoy many Halloween activities; carving pumpkins, going to haunted attractions and all the wonderful food (carmel apples, candy corn, etc.). Today's project has the scary season in mind. I created this reuseable treat holder out of a empty Crystal Light container. For added drama paper and punches were used. The spooky owl was created out of SU punches.
