Fall & Halloween Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to your last stop on the Fall/Halloween Blog Hop featuring the Thankful Thursday Design Team!   Hopefully you just came from the super talented Gaby at Gaby Creates.  If not, please head on over to see our hop hostess Jenny at Crazy About Cricut so you can start from the beginning! 

My 3 E's and I have been working on our goody bags for Halloween so that is what I have to share with you today!  I was so proud of my Oldest E when she said she wanted to give all her Kindergarten friends hand santitizers rather than candy this year.  I think her little goody bags make a nice, useful gift for the season!

She of course chose Hello Kitty as the focus of her goody bags!  The "Too Cute to Spook!" and Candied Orange Crinkle Ribbon are both from My Craft Spot.  I found these black paper bags at ACMoore on clearance last year!  I couldn't make bags for as cheap as I bought them!   

Next are the cards Oldest E made to go with her Gift Bags!  Aren't they simple and cute?  She loves this spider stamp!  She used it on her Valentines this year too!

The stamp set and little envelopes are both retired Stampin' Up! items.  The pumpkins are the girls favorite item to make and are super easy! 

Start with 8 circles of your desired size (we used our 1 3/4" paper punch), 4 slivers of green and a strip of brown for the stem. 

Fold the circles in half and adhere together.  Roll up the brown and the greens.

 Once the circles are adhered together slide the stem and vines down the center.

Like I said, my daughters love to make these! 

My last goody bag to share is one that I have been waiting all year to make.  I saw these adorable Halloween tags last year on Tammy Skinners Creative Critterz Blog and I couldn't wait to make them this year!  I bought a dozen of these little black buckets after Halloween last year with the intention to use them with these adorable tags this year!  Middle E was excited about them and chose to fill her goody buckets with her favorite candy corn.  I think they turned out pretty cute!

I hope you enjoyed my Halloween Goodies today and I hope you enjoyed the hop!  Jenny has a fabulous prize available at Crazy About Cricut!  The grand prize for this hop is the beautiful Celebrate With Flourish cartridge. 
To enter you need to leave a comment on ALL the blogs in this hop.  Jenny will be drawing one lucky winner for that fun prize!

But wait, there is more!  I am offering a super fun set of Halloween Bakers Twine from My Craft Spot

Great treats!!! Awesome details. Lovely. I guess the cooler weather is what I like best about fall. I'd enjoy fall a lot more if I knew winter/snow wasn't behind it :(
