Spooky Treats to Start September

Halloween is such a great holiday for crafting. Here are a couple quick-and-easy candy treats I put together with my A Muse Studio supplies. Both treats use the "Too Cute to Spook" stamp set. If you would like to purchase the supplies, or some finished treats, contact me!

All products used except candy and staples are A Muse Studio.
"Wonderfully Wicked" Treat:
Stamp Sets: Too Cute to Spook, If You Dare (retired)
Cardstock: Orange, Onyx Petite Polk Dot, Onyx Gingham, Orange Chevron
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Dies: Nestabilities Scallop Circles and Standard Circles
Extras: Halloween Washi Tape, Tombow Adhesive Dot Tape Runner, Hershey Kisses, Staple, Small Cellophane Bags

Die cut small circles using all colors of cardstock listed. Stamp small images from "If You Dare" in black on the solid orange cardstock circles. Use tape runner to adhere circles to bottom of Hershey kisses. Die cut large scallop circle in orange, and score in half. On lower half of scallop circle, stamp cat and sentiment from "Too Cute to Spook". Fill cello bag with kisses, seal, fold scallop circle over top and staple to secure. Place green stripe Halloween washi on tag to finish.

Die cut pyramid box from Orange Petite Polka Dot cardstock. Fold and secure side with Super-Stick Red Tape, leaving pyramid base open. Die cut bat and large scallop circle from Onyx, and small scallop circle from sage. On sugar, stamp ghost and "happy haunting". Color in ghost with BG10 Copic Marker. Round top corners of sugar rectangle using 1/2" side of Corner Chomper. Use Quickie Glue Pen and Onyx Glitter to glitter bat. Adhere onyx scallop circle to pyramid base with tape runner. Adhere sage scallop circle and sugar panel to side of pyramid box where lid attaches (so decorations will face down when box is opened). Use 3d Foam to adhere bat. Loop Silver Cord around base of pyramid and thread through button. Double knot at button to secure, and trim ends. Use glue dots to secure button to box and keep cord from sliding up. Pop fun-size candy into box for a yummy surprise!
