Stamp Campin'

I had a stamp camp yesterday. It was a FIVE HOURS. The ladies that came were so exhausted when they left. :) I planned eight Halloween projects. My favorite was my cute little altered cookie box. I wrote about them in my last post. I decided to put those "buggers" to use. You've heard of animal crackers right? Well, these are the same thing, but they are in the shape of BUGS. It couldn't be more perfect for Halloween. Especially for the younger kids who really aren't eating candy yet. Here is the completed project. The sentiment was purchased at my LSS. The CS and patterned paper are from Stampin' Up! I love when such an ordinary thing can become something so darn cute! Of course, to get to the bug cookies the whole thing will have to be ripped apart, but for the time being it gets to sit there looking cute.
To make it, I simply measured the box of cookies and cut the patterned paper to fit. Then, I cut cardstock to cover the sides. I finished it off with a tag and some RIBBON of course.

I also came up with a little covered matchbox. My friend, Tracy Paulk described to me how to make one and I just had to try it. I found a package of 10 matchboxes at Walmart for less than $1. I cut patterned paper to cover it. I used craft ink to color the insert that holds the matches. I then stuck a piece of CS inside the matchbox and then placed a mini hersheys bar in it. It is the perfect
size for just one little bar. They are so quick, easy and FUN to make. I may make them for my children's classes this year!

Yet another project was a simple small Hershey's bar slide. I had finished a different project and had pieces leftover. I looked it and the candy bar slider was born. It is another simple, quick project that I wouldn't mind making for the 50+ students in my two daughter's classes. I cut small pieces of orange cardstock and then scored them in the center. I stamped Aida Cloth BG on them with Versamark ink. On one side of the score line I stamped the spider from Boogie Eyes. On the other side of the score line, I used collage alpha to spell out BOO. I close with eyelets and ribbon and finished it off with filling in Mr. Spider's eyes with my white gel pen.

Here is a pic of each side of the small Hershey's Bar slide.
