Well today is halloween so I figured that I better show you a project to go with the holiday. I will admit though that I am not a huge halloween fan, now I know some of you are over the top with the decorations and costumes, which is totally fun but it has just never been my thing,lol! I however do have children who love dressing up and get quite excited for the day to arrive so I might as well use the opportunity to get a little crafty:)
My youngest is in kindergarten this year and she loves making things with me, which I totally enjoy but it has to be something that she is able to do with out a lot of stress on me. You see I am a little bit of a control freak and find the overwhelming need to make sure things are done a certain way so the key is easy projects!
I have always loved baking even as a child and I am sure a lot of us remember baking cookies with our mom or dad and how fun it was to mix the dough and watch them bake. So what could be even more fun then baking and stamping?! Stampin' Up! has these awesome Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps and we just used the sugar cookie receipe that comes with them but added a little orange food colouring to the dough. Then we rolled it into balls and Isabelle "stamped" the pumpkin face from the Holiday set.
Now of course yummy cookies have to have cute packing so we used the premade tags from the Ghoulish Googlies Designer Kit. All she had to do was stamp the images from Googly Ghouls and add the super cute Googlie eyes. We then put them into 4x6" Cello Bags and tied them closed with Lucky Limeaide Baker's Twine. And for an added little treat we also attached a fun bat or spider plastic ring. A very fun and stress free halloween project!
Have a great day,
