K-cup Favors

We had a Halloween pot luck at work and I thought these cute K cup favors made such a great "adult" treat.  Since I wore an office-friendly witch costume (purple blouse, black slacks, striped stockings and pointy-toe shoes!), I thought it only fitting to bring a witch-themed treat :)

I used the tutorial here for the holders.  The 4 oz coffee cups came from Webstaurant Store.  I just bought the white ones and then covered them with coordinating paper.  The favors are simple to made and the cups are the perfect size to hold a K cup.  These held a Great Value brand pumpkin spice cappuccino.  They are really good!  The patterned paper is digital paper from the Pininkie Etsy shop (here).

I stamped, embossed, and cut out Inkadinkado Witching Hour stamps and glued them to the holder. The sentiment is computer-generated and cut out with a Spellbinders die.  The tiny "happy halloween" is also stamped and embossed.  The sentiment is computer generated and cut out with a Spellbinders die.

It's a tradition in the Jackson household to watch Hocus Pocus every Halloween.  I try to do something a little different every year to announce when we'll watch.  This year, I made this little holder for Jenna because I knew it would make her laugh:

Here's a close up of the image and sentiment:

Hee hee!  It was perfect!  The image is a digital stamp, Skelly Gossip.  The patterned paper is digital paper from the A Scrap of Time Etsy shop (here).

 An inexpensive skeleton stamp set from Michael's created this happy little skellie barista:

I made one just to celebrate Fall using this precious Lemon Shortbread digital stamp (here) and fall leaves digital paper from VMIDigiPapers Etsy shop (here):

The image is colored with copics then I masked it off and sponged the background with Colorbox ink.

These little favors are so versatile - I cannot wait for Thanksgiving and Christmas!  Have a great weekend :)

Halloween Treat/Petite Places - Spook Manor

I have just discovered these tiny houses from Papertrey Ink.  They are called "Petite Places," and there is a whole collection of buildings to include this adorable and not-so-scary haunted house, "Spook Manor."
They make adorable jar toppers but first, here are some photos without the plastic dome

The tiny trick-or-treater in his ghost costume --cuteness overload!  There are coordinating stamps sets to go with the dies so you can create the house and then add accessories. I put the bats on strips of craft plastic so they could "fly" above the house.  I also created a tiny black cat for the fence:

I used a paper punch cat on Shrinky Dink film and shrank it using my heat gun!   

They make the most adorable gift toppers for jars and candles.

I found the candles at TJ Maxx. Isn't this just the perfect adult Halloween treat!? 
Have a great week!
