Pick Your Poison- Halloween Magnets

Good Morning!  I'm getting ready for some upcoming kids stamp classes and was trying to think of a fun idea for them to make.   I got out some metal boxes I have had laying around and decided they are going to make some Halloween Pick Your Poison Magnets.  Here's what I did,  easy as pie ladies1  Take your Pick Your Poison DPS and stamp your images onto the paper and cut out.  Now take magnetic sheets that have self adhesive backing and stick the images right onto the sheets.   Measure the inside of your box and add some Pick Your Poison DSP paper inside.  I made a belly band to fit the outside of the box.   The magnets stick nicely right into the box and stay in place so you can see them.

Candy Corn Petal Cone Treat Box

Good Morning Stampers!  Looking for a cute little Halloween treat box to make?  I saw this idea on a website and thought I would try it with our Petal Cone die and it works great!  All you need to do is punch out the die in whisper white, fold all up and
put together except for the bottom.  Now take your double sided Sticky Strip and start at the bottom and do 3 rows of strip all the way around the cone.  Now add the SU! Orange glitter.  Now move the the next layer and do 2 strips of adhesive and add the Gold SU! glitter.  I topped it off with a scallop tag and stamp from the Spooky Bingo Bits set and added a Basic Rhinestone.



Ingredients:
Cardstock:  Whisper White Creamy Caramel, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories:  Petal Cone Die, SU! Glitter in Gold and Orange, Basic Rhinestones, Sticky Strip, Scallop Punch, 1 1/4 circle Punch, 1 3/8 circle punch, Ribbon of choice
Stamp Set:  Spooky Bingo Bits  W- 123944 or C - 123946

Ekk! burlap picture

 Good Morning stampers!  Here's a fun and easy Halloween decoration for you to make....  I picked up the frame at the Dollar Tree and some burlpa from the fabric store and the mini spiders...



Here's how you get started.... take out your Big Shot and the Serif Essentials alphabet die. I have used the word Ekk, so go ahead and punch out your letters.   Take the reverse image and put on top of the burlap.  Starting with some black arcylic paint and a sponge brush and use the letter as a stencil.  Paint out your words and let dry.


Next, take out a sharpie and draw the spider web in the corner.  Add your mini spiders with the Tombow ahesive glue.
Take out the new Dazzling Details glitter glue and add to the web.  Now to spooky it up a bit I took the Silver Foil Smooch Spritz and sprayed it all over the burlap.   If you need a bit more help, there is a video tutorial to purchase below for $3.99

Pick your Poison- Hand Sanitizers

Back with some more Halloween fun today!  I found these anti bacterials at the Dollar Tree.  What I liked is that one is purple and the other is green, perfect for Halloween!   Here's what the package looked like below before I got my craft on.




I used the Pick your Poison Designer Series Paper to decorate this set of spooky Halloween images. 
.



Up close, doesn't the spider look real!  The front label of the anti backterial soap just peels right off. I traced the origninal size onto the DSP paper then stamped all my images and glued them to the front , added some pumpkin pie ribbon.  I also decorated the orginal box.


On this one I made it more cutesy,  not so scary.


Hoep you like them!  xoxo
