Welcome! I'm so happy you have joined the NC Demo Blog Hop! We are sharing some Halloween favorites with you today.
There are a lot of great projects so be sure you take the entire hop. I'm going to share a few 3D items for Halloween. Up first is my mummy Hershey bar. This was inspired by Dawn Olchefske.
First of all, I buy my Hershey bars by the case at Sam's Club. They are cheaper that way.
- I made a sleeve for the candy bar. My Whisper White card stock measures 5 1/2 x 6. Score on the 5 1/2 inch side at 1, 1 1/4, 3 1/2, and 3 3/4. I put a row of Tear & Tape along one of the sides, put my candy bar on the paper and wrapped the sleeve around it. Make sure to match the paper up so it all looks neat an tidy.
- My mummy wrap is white crepe paper. I picked that up at the Dollar Tree. I folded the crepe paper in half. I just felt that it was too wide. Adhere the end near the top with glue dots and wrap. Once I got to the bottom I did a couple wraps back up the candy bar, but much wider. Secure with glue dots. I used a sponge dauber and rubbed Sahara Sand ink on the crepe paper. I did this on all sides. Mummies are not clean creatures, you know.
- The eyes are made from Whisper White card stock, 3/4 inch circle punch, and Basic Black card stock, 1/2 inch circle punch. Sponge around the white with Sahara Sand.
- The bat decoration on the straw is cut using the Halloween Scenes Edgelits. Dies, of course in black.
- We need a little decoration. I wrapped both colors of the Halloween Night Baker's Twine around the candy bar and tied a bow.
- Don't you love the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set? I stamped the mummy in Basic Black Archival ink on Whisper White. Allow that to dry a minute or two and punch him out with the Cookie Cutter Builder punch. I used the Sahara Sand Stampin' Write Marker to color in some of the strips of bandage and a little down the left side of the mummy. Adhere with dimensionals.
- The sign is stamped with the Spooky Fun stamp set. I stamped in archival black on to Pumpkin Pie card stock that is 1/2 inch wide. Notch the ends and adhere to the mummy.
- Enjoy the look on someone's face when they receive your mummy!
My next project uses the mini coffee cups. I wish I could tell you how to find these. I bought them from a friend. I'm sure you can google them. I will tell you that you have to buy the lids separately from the cups. I took one of the cups apart to make a pattern for my designer paper. The paper I used is called Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper.
- Trace around your pattern and cut your patterned paper. Adhere to the cup. I used Fast Fuse. The straws were purchased from the Dollar Tree. I did cut them down. The signs were made by stamping in archival black ink on Whisper White that is 1/4 inch wide. Put Fast Fuse down the back and then loop it on the straw. Be careful so that you match the front to the back. Notch the ends.
- I used the Layering Circles Framelits for each circle and scalloped circle using Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black card stock.
- The characters were stamped in archival black and punched out. The mummy was colored as above. I added a red bow tie for Dracula. The skeleton got a bow, too. I added the Trick or Treat bags. I colored the objects in the bag with markers. You will have to cut out the bags with snips, but they are easy.
- Adhere everything with dimensionals.
- Fill with little chocolate candies. Yes, it must be chocolate!
These items were so much fun to make. You are ready to move on to the next hop. My product list will follow the list of blog participants. Thanks so much for stopping by today!
