Pearl City Make 'N Take

Hope you're all having a great weekend!!! Just wanted to share the project we did at the Pearl City Ben Franklin this morning. A little favor to get you in the Halloween mood (Can you believe Monday is already September???). Start off with one of those little wooden spoons...I traced the spoon on a piece of colored cardstock, cut it out and glued it onto the spoon. Then I stamped, colored and cut out some Halloween images and glued them onto the spoon. I covered everything with a coat of Mod Podge to give it a nice finish...tied a ribbon and glued on some paper fall leaves. Here's a look at just the spoon:

I used two sheets of 6-1/2" x 6-1/2" tissue paper, filled it with 5 Hershey's candies, stuck the decorated spoon in the center of everything and wrapped the whole thing up with some wired leaf garland.

Stamps used: #701 (Pumpkin), #703 (Ghost) and #704 (Happy Halloween).

I think I'll try a Thanksgiving card now since I have all the fall leaves out. Check back tomorrow...or maybe later tonight (it COULD happen!!!)
