Haunted Popcorn! Weekend Project

Need something fun for the babysitter or a teacher or someone who can't have candy??? This was not only fun but quick to make too!!!

You will need a bag of microwave popcorn, a piece of glossy card stock cut 7-1/2" x 9", three sponges, three different color ink pads and die cuts.

First I folded the card stock around my popcorn. I used the bone folder on the folds to make them nice and sharp. I set the popcorn aside and proceeded to color the background with the sponges. I used Old Olive for the ground. I just inked up my sponge and ran it across the ground area horizontally. I repeated that process for the other two colors, Pumpkin Pie and Night of Navy.

Then I used my Sizzix Halloween Die Cut and cut out the house. I just love the little bat that came with this one. The words are from another die cut and after seeing it done I wished I would have cut it out of Old Olive or black too. The Pumpkin was just too light. It does show up better in real life but it could have been darker. I glued them on with Tacky glue and a tooth pick. The house and bat I was able to use double-sided adhesive. The letters were just too small for that kind of tape.

Once the glue dried I slid the popcorn in and it was done. SO simple!!! And not to mention fun. This is something that kids can do too!! It's always fun to find kid friendly projects!!!

Thank you for stopping by,
