This week's blogger's challenge was Halloween. Fitting, huh??? lol!
As I mentioned before, my daughter is on a pee-wee bowling league. Unlike regular bowling leagues, the kiddos do not rotate lanes or the teams they bowl with. It isn't that competitive, thank goodness! My little one has always bowled on lane 1, which is a good thing....a wall on one side makes half of the distractions. LOL!!! Anyway...wondering where I am going here???? I always try to make some kind of treat for her team on the team on lane 2 for the Holidays.
I found these little cups at wal-mart 5/$1.00....what???..... .20 cents each???? I had to get them! I was pondering many ways to give them a halloween treat...this solved that problem! So I bought these cups and filled them with candies. The one little boy on lane 2 has a little brother that doesn't bowl. I doubt he eats candy yet, my daughter didn't at that age....so I made him a treat cup with animal crackers and stuff like that.
Aren't they cute? I was happy how they turned out. I made a personalized tag for each one.
I started with a layer on whisper white and stamped "to: from:" from the Holiday Collection Artwork stamp set that will be in the Country Living Promotion beginning in November. I stamped it in pumpkin pie. I also stamped Happy Halloween from All Holidays in pumpkin pie. I layered the tag with pumpkin pie as well. I punched the two top corners with the tag corner punch. Did you happen to see the bat on the tag????
I made that out of punches to coordinate with the little bats on the cup. The body is a 1 1/4 circle punch. The ears are one point from the large star punch. I colored the eyes on with a white gel pen. The wings are a large oval punch. I then punched one edge of the oval punch with the 1/2 inch circle punch to create the wings. I adhered it all together with tombo momo multi adhesive and mounted it on stampin' dimensionals to the tag. I punched a hole in the top of the tag with the 1/4 circle punch. The cup is in a cello bag. I wrapped black polka dot ribbon around it and through the hole in the tag to tie a bow. The ribbon isn't stampin' up....I have no idea who is the manufacturer....I had it in my ribbon box, off the spool.
Happy Halloween to each of you!!!!
