The Great Pumpkin Day is coming!

Well, I guess this image blurred a little bit! So much for getting a clear picture on the scanner! Anyway, I did a quick little treat for the preschoolers at church and daycare. I wrapped a little notepad in Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry and then stamped the Halloween image from the Sweet Treats for the bottom part. I used a glue dot to hold on a set of Halloween crayons and finished it off with some jute and the center of the stamped image. The next two are pins that I made for the daycare workers. I used the curly label punch as the base and then a few hole punches and paper snips to make a Frankenstein and Dracula. Hopefully they weren't too scary for them! I also covered each with 2 layers of Mod Podge just to keep it from being too flimsy to wear on a shirt.
And here is the bag that I sent all of the worker's pins in. I used a white paper bag and covered the front with a 6 X 6 inch piece of black cardstock. I used the Whisper White and Old Olive craft ink to set the Baroque images on the background. For the pumpkin, I just glued a bunch of wide oval punches together and snipped a little stem for it. Finally, I used the Movers and Shapers Curly Label to punch the Old Olive paper and put some stampin' dimensionals under it. For a little ending touch, I added a few Boho Blossoms to the corner.
And one last bag that I made for my little niece, Brinklee. I found a few board books to send her for Halloween, so I used the Build-a-Bear pumpkin outfit to make a sweet and simple bag for her as well.
