Crafty Secrets Design Team Blog Hop!

Happy Friday, ahhhhh, my fave day of the week! To top it off some of the girls on the Crafty Secrets design team are having a blog hop today, YIPPEE!!

We're to make a project or unusual shaped card using a stamp set we haven't used much. OK, this is a stretch, but, I love the Halloween Fun set and I only get to use it once a year, so it's not used much, right?

I decided to make another treat holder, this time I got the idea to use one of my ginormous tags from eclecticPaperie. I couldn't find them in their store, they may be out, but you could contact them and see if they have any.

I took the ginormous tag, it measures 8x4, and scored it at 2 1/2 " & again at 3" from the bottom.

I covered it with my Earthy paper and then I tied the twill around it to hold it closed. I left it opened enough to put candy inside. I embellished it and tied ribbon at the top so it can be hung on a door knob. Super easy! Wouldn't these be cute for your co-workers or special trick or treaters on your list?

Go on over and check out the other designers blogs to see what they have come up with, you'll be glad you did!
It's September 25th, it's my birthday, it's also my twin HB's birthday. We are the same age too, but, I won't tell ya that Smiley from
