Glitter Queens' Blog Hop - Halloween

Welcome to Glitter Queens' Blog Hop!  So nice of you to stop by again.  Are you ready for some spooky inspiration?  Creep along with us to see all the amazing projects the Glitter Queens have waiting for you. Be sure to share our posts with all your friends.  It's a great way to get everyone in a ghostly mood!

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.  I always send  handmade Halloween cards to the kids and "kids at heart" in my family. 

The base card is cut from 12 x 12 Very Vanilla at 11½ x 5½, scored at 3 and 7¼. The pumpkin die from Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits was perfect for the tea light portal.   I love the ghosts floating skyward from behind the pumpkins.  

I think my second project turned out really cute!  I could not make the popcorn balls small enough fit a Stampin' UP! treat holder; so, I got creative and made a box using Simply Scored Tool,  Designer Series Paper, Layering Circle Framelits and ribbon.  

I love the peekaboo windows that make the popcorn ball visible to the recipient, yummy!  The popcorn ball is wrapped in plastic wrap which I pulled through the top of the box after cutting semi circles in each corner of closing flaps.  The protruding plastic wrap keeps the box closed nicely and I like the look!

Visit my blog for Saturday Spotlight this week where I will be sharing the recipe for these awesome popcorn balls.  Very quick and easy to make. My hubby said they were the best popcorn balls I have ever made.  LOL, I added more butter this time.

Creep along to Susie next and all the other Glitter Queens.  You will be sorry if you miss anyone!  Thanks for stopping by. See you next month.  Have a wonderful, spooky Halloween!
