Welcome to the CJToo Halloween Blog Hop!


Welcome everyone to the CJToo Crafty Halloween Blog Hop!! 
Tracy at Craft Junkie Too and the wonderful designers are sharing their spooky but crafty Halloween projects and ideas!  You should have arrived here from Shawn's Fireside Crafting Room, but if not.....check out the lineup at the bottom of this post.....start at Tracy's site!  There's just 8 of us!  And don't forget to leave us comments for your chance to win some blog candy along the way.


For my crafty Halloween project, I created these cute and fun little treats for Carley's class at her daycare!  Hoping the parents won't hate me too much, but I found the cutest idea out there in the blogworld (and it's killing me that I CANNOT remember from who so I could give the credit! UGH!) of a S'More treat!  I started these treat bags by taking graham crackers, mini Hershey's bars, and the Ghost Peeps and putting them in a Ziploc bag.

Then, I cut 7.5" by 5.5" pieces of cardstock then scored them in the middle.  These were the bag toppers.......I folded down the Ziploc bag and cardstock, stapled it, then of course decorated them.

On the back to cover the staples, I simply cut some different coordinating color strips, then printed and adhered some simple S'more directions for the microwave. I thought everyone knew how to make a s'more, but it's possible someone doesn't! :) I also used one of my Michael's $1 stamps on the back.



On the front, I used my Creative Memories tag punch to cut out the sentiment "Hope You Have S'More Fun! Love, Carley" which I printed on my computer.  I thought the font was appropriate......it was called "Jokerman".  :)  I also used glittered Halloween brads to attach the tags to the strips of "ghost" paper then adhered that down.  I used pop-dots to adhere some glittered candy corn stickers to the front as well for a finishing touch!


And here are all 14 of them I made!  :)  I'm sure the teachers will want one too! ;)

  One side note......I didn't even use my Cricut!   Gasp!  That's a rarety for sure! :)  But I really thought these treats turned out super cute! And they weren't that hard to make either!  I hope you enjoyed your visit on the CJToo Crafty Halloween Blog Hop!

Have fun and hope you are inspired!! :)
Happy Halloween!
