Halloween Party Favor Weekend Project

Oh my, I just can't believe how fast this month has flown by. I still have LOTS of Halloween ideas to make but I guess I will tuck them away in a box and save them for next year. But I will keep some of them out since I can convert them into Christmas with just a simple change of color of paper!!! Goota LOVE that!!!

These cute party favors are made using the Big Shot die cut "Baskets & Blossoms Bagz" by Stampin' Up! I LOVE using this die cut. I am planning on using it a lot for Christmas "stuff!"

For this project I only used the basket part. I cut out 4 and glued the side seam to the inside of the other edge. Then I glued the bottom and ran it through the crimper about 1/4". I wanted to use it to help set the glue faster and to give the bottom a little bit of a crimp. Stuffing this little favor full is not going to make the bottom pop out on this one!!!

I wasn't sure what I was going to do about the handle hole but after looking at my options (a million of them) I decided to go with the Stampin' Up! "Batty for You" images. I punched them out using the 1-1/4" punch and I taped them on a circle that was punched out using the 1-3/8" punch. And finally I taped that to the scallop that was punched out in Basic Black card stock.

I did glue them to the handle area. I just added a dot on the top and a smaller dot on the bottom VERY close to the rim of the circle. There isn't a whole lot of room there to spare! Be sure to look before you glue.

And then the fun part, I filled each one with a fun size Kit Kat bar!!! The perfect little party favor. You can use these for birthdays and in the scalloped layer you can have each child's name or other party theme images. You can add ribbons, brads, buttons or bows! I didn't because I figured the kiddies would just toss them once they took the candy out!!! I know I would have as a kid!!! LOL

I just noticed that next week is my Blogoversary! I will begin my 3rd year of blogging. Can you believe that???? So to celebrate I will be offering up some blog candy so stay tuned!!

You've gone and done it now. I was able to resist this die figuring it was only good for a basket and once given then what?! Now I begin to see the possibilities. On to my ever expanding wish list. LOL! jmniffer
