Back to the Holiday at Hand

I admit it; Christmas is my favorite holiday, so I tend to get carried away with making Christmas things, dreaming about making Christmas things, and just in general diving headfirst into the whole holiday spirit.  Can't help myself....with or without the mistletoe, I'm obsessive compulsive in the holiday mood!

However, we do still have two holidays that come first, so today I'm sharing some little Halloween treats.

  • These were so quick and easy to make!  Start with 2-3/4" x 4" cardstock.  You can get 8 of these out of one sheet of CS.
  • Score the short side at 1/4", 3/4", and 1-1/4".  
  • Rotate and cut a slit 1/2" from each side (from the 1/4" score line to the 1-1/4" score line).  
  • Fold as shown and slip the candy in.  
  • Add a DSP mat and decorate as desired!
Apologies for the blurry photos.  I have a new camera and haven't figured out the settings for the best quality yet.  Apparently the settings that worked for my old Nikon don't do it for my new Nikon.

Update on my mom - it doesn't look like the cancer has spread to the ovaries, thank God.  Your prayers and well wishes have been most appreciated!


  1. I love these! I am always looking for a quick and easy project for my club ladies, and this is perfect!

  2. These are so cute!!! Love them!

  3. Love this - it is a perfect little sweet treat to share with someone! tfs!

  4. These are adorable! I can even see dropping one of these on each desk in my office just for fun. Great work.

  5. Hi there--I love your blog. Your cards are amazing. I too am addicted to paper arts and have been stamping for several years. I just started a blog and I hope that when I get it going more that it will look as good as your. I will be back often to follow your work. My blog is Harpo's Cards but like I said there is not much on it yet.

  6. Fabulous! I just wish I had time to make some... Maybe next year!
    So happy to hear that you mom's cancer hasn't spread! That is definitely an answer to my prayers. Will continue to keep you in them...

  7. This is such a do-able project! Love them all!

  8. These are so stinkin cute Cindy. TFS!!!! Following you from the SC. Bev
