Halloween Blog Hop ~ Day 2

Welcome Back!
I am so glad you returned for another day of ghostly, but delightful projects. Yesterday was eerily fantastic since there were so many creative ideas and only one theme...Halloween. That is what I love about the arts! You never know what you will get,  you become mesmerized, and you always want to go back for more.

Here is my project for today...
Candy Containers

These message bottles were purchased at Michaels. They were regularly priced at $3.99, but I used a 50% off coupon. My daughter found them in the kid's craft department.
The bottom detaches so you can fill each plastic container with a special treat. The piece of cork did not even need to be removed from the top.
I used self-adhesive ribbon to seal the two pieces together. The final piece was the pumpkin from the Doodlecharm cartridge which was attached with a piece of orange or black ribbon. I used an edge punch (see below) to make the slits to weave the ribbon through.
My daughter wants to give these "Sweet Treats" to her teachers. I am hoping they enjoy!

I have 2 more goodies for a lucky winner (which will be announced on Monday, October 4th). I wanted to add some cool Autumn colors to the treat bag.
Thank you for visiting, becoming a follower and leaving a comment. I truly appreciate you and all the comments. I love crafting and wish I could do even more!
Be sure to visit Dorcas at 4 Crafty Angels next for a frightenly terrific project.
Stay Creative,
Georgiana  : )

  51. I think it is very kind for your daughter to think of her teachers. She must be given a pat on the back for her caring jesture. Teachers are often forgotten and need a token of appriciation. Kuddos to you and your daughter. Great idea.
