Whipper Snapper Tag Time!

OK! I'm back in the Halloween frame of mind! I bought me a bunch of Brach's candy corn today at Wal-Mart, YIPPEE!!! They finally have their Halloween candy out, I got caramel candy corn, carmel apple candy corn and the regular candy corn......mmmmmmmm.......dang, I better snap out of it, if I eat all 3 bags, I'm in trouble, geeeeez. Oh, I found these great napkins too, cool, huh?! They had some really cute Halloween stuff, I had to control myself, LOL!ETA: I have received some questions about the dimensions of this tag card, so, here they are!
I cut a 12x12 piece of orange cardstock 4 1/4" x 12, score every 3", fold it closed accordian style. At the top of the tag card find the center at 1 1/2", draw down at an angle 2" on each side from the center mark, cut with scissors to form the roof top. Decorate to your hearts content!

I just had to make a tag card out of Anna Wight's Whipper Snapper Designs sets, Hocus Pocus and Spooky Expressions. Those smiling gouls are just so stinkin' cute, they make me smile! I paper pieced the images, stamped them again on white cardstock, cut out the smiles and glued them on. I added some Martha Stewart yellow gold glitter on a few of their teeth. I punched the scalloped ovals and stamped them with some of the sentiment stamps for the background.

I put Glossy Accents on the candy and then I sprinkled them with SU! Dazzling Diamonds glitter for some sparkle.
I used my Crop-a-dile and set some SU! (retired) large purple flower eyelets at the top of each tag and I tied the ribbon through the eyelets.
The little black bling is gemstones by Hero Arts. I used my Copic markers to color everything that needed coloring!
I put the tag on my candle holder to take the closeup's, I had the perfect light!

I'm so happy to say
I hope your weekend is magical!
Thanks for stopping by!
