Cricut Basics,Halloween Treatbox & Halloween blog CANDY!


Good Monday Morning!    Blog Candy Alert!

Today I want to share a fun treat bag for the new challenge over @ Paper Playtime AND
I have some Halloween blog candy!

Pin It

Stamps: SU! background (Sanded)
sentiment - CG
Paper:  SU! cs, K&Co dp
Ink: Memento ink pad
Other: green shredded plastic, floss, buttons,
Cricut - Plantin Schoolbook (bag, page 80)
(blast & shadow,  page 75)

This is very basic Cricut cuts, using a cart that probably came with your machine.
  • cut two bags @ 3 1/2"  
  • blast & frame @ 1 1/2"
I simply fit one bag inside the other letting enough of the inside bag exposed to attach button eyes. The blast/mouth is on an Action Wobble so it wiggles a bit!   The sizes of the bag can be adjusted for the candy you want to use, mine fits a Hershey candy bar! yum!

Paper Playtime has switched things up a bit....so EVERYONE can easily play along!
