(Top 3 Winner)
Several years ago, someone made a candy bar holder to give out to the kids for Halloween. They used heavy cardstock & wrapped it around the candy bar & then decorated it. I thought that was a great idea but I wanted to use my pretty paper, which is not substantial enough to hold a candy bar. So, my brain went into overload & I dug through the trash (eww!) & found an empty toilet paper roll, ( I knew it was down there somewhere!) I flattened it, covered it with my DSP & then decorated it. I have made a gob of these since. My friend Debbie, @ The Paper Garden, has put a new twist to it. She put a bag of candy in it & then tied a bow at the top. Cool! Here is mine. The kitty was inspired by Ellen from Blinkin', Thinkin' & Inkin'. Somewhere, I saw someone leave the face off, so that the cat appeared to be looking the other way. I love that. It looks so real.
So, here's the recipe:
Cat- lg oval (head), word window (body), 5 petal flower (ears & legs), Lg Heart (tail), Slot (collar), whiskers (hand cut).
Pumpkins- 3/4" circle (Stem)- jewelry tag- cut at diagonal (Leaves)- 2-Step Bird wing.
(Grass)- scallop border (Moon)- 2-1/2" circle (Bat)- Bitty Bat
DSP- SU! Rich Razzleberry
Bags- SU! Medium Cello Bags
