A little Halloween "Popper" Treat!

Here is one of the little Halloween "Popper" Treats that everyone attending my upcoming Halloween Treats class will be making!  What a fun little treat it is to fill with some of your favorite little candies,  treats or money!  (Everyone will be making 2 of this little popper at my class.)
stamp set:  'A Little Something'
card stock: Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Basic Black
designer paper:  Happy Hauntings
ink:  Basic Black Archival
other:  1 3/4' Scalloped Circle Punch, 1 1/2" Circle Punch, 2" Circle Punch, Envelope Punch Board  Dimensionals, Glue Dots, 1/4" Cotton Ribbon, Glue Dots

How did I do this-
  • With a 6” X 4 1/2”
  • With the scoring board and the short side at the top, score at 1 ,2 ,3 &4”
  • Fold on score lines using the bone folder
  • Use your Envelope Punch Board and line up (using the long 6” side) and put the edge at 1” mark…PUNCH & then flip the paper over and place that back at the 1” mark and PUNCH.
  • Fold down to the next score line and do the same….go to 1” PUNCH  & flip & punch and do it again until you have completed all folds.
  • Using a piece of Tear and Tape, place it of the ½” piece in the middle – fold over to seal. 
  • Use a glue dot on each end to secure. 
  • Pinch in the sides and tie a piece of ribbon around each end!
Our life is crazier than ever this week!!  We all have a ton of stuff on our schedules.   I ended up having Masen all afternoon & evening yesterday, so it was late last night when I finally got to start stamping.  Thankfully I had good mojo!  My cards for this weeks classes are super cute!  I can't wait for everyone to see them.  

The guys worked in the shop until the wee hours of the morning too, getting the stock car ready to leave for Nationals, so they didn't get hardly any sleep either.  

Then Nathan remembered early this morning that he had some holes in his racing pants that had to be fixed- as they are inspected at just what I wanted to do early this morning was mend his racing pants, but I got them done.  Lucky he has a mom that lives close by & knows how to sew.

I'm off to pick up the 3 boys & then Masen will be arriving again about 8 this morning, as Nathan & Sarah are headed to IMCA Nationals for the rest of the week.  Deke is off early to chore & then he is headed out to Mount Pleasant for a morning meeting & an afternoon meeting for 2 different boards he serves on.  

Tonight Brayden has a football game, so we'll be going to that.  I"ll then be burning the midnight oil cutting card stock.  Hopefully Masen is a good sleeper when he stays all night at G'ma & Papa's.  He has been here a few nights late, but has never stayed all night.  He will be here with us for the next 2 1/2 days- day & night. 

Hopefully Nathan has good luck this week & comes home safely & with the car all in one piece.  None of us are able to go up to watch him we'll have to keep updated with text messages from Sarah on things.  Brayden's Papa Mark Sheetz & Nathan's friend Josh are both going to Nationals with them too.  

Gotta run.....I hope you have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!!
Happy Stamping!!
