ABC...Anything But a Card

I am excited to finally share with you all the fun things I made for Lucas' 1st grade Fall Party as I have been very busy over past couple weeks getting it all together. The challenge this week at Cooking It Up With Katie was perfect to showcase my items! Our challenge this week is "A+B+C= Anything But a Card" and we are sponsored by Gingerloft.  You won't want to miss the amazing projects the DT gals came up with for thsi challenge.

First up are my little Frankie and Dracula treat sacks that were created using my Cricut and
CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge. I inked everything and added the mouths and stitches.  These were a huge hit with the kiddos, I hid them around the classroom and they had to find my Halloween friends!

Next meet my cute new Halloween gal pal Candy Corn, LOL!!!  I created this sweet thing using my Cricut and Mini Monsters cartridge.  I then added her to a small plastic container, cut a hole in the front, and she was perfect for a little candy corn relay race.  The kids used pancake spatuals/turners to scoop the candy corn up and run down to put in the container.  This was a riot as they thought race and took off, candy corn went flying everywhere, then they caught on this was a race of skill!  

 Also in the photo I created some bookmarks the kids could color by stamping Halloween images and adding a little ribbon.  Each of the treat sacks also had cute little kraft tags stamped with same images I used on bookmarks and Happy Halloween sentiment from Lucas on backs!

I am entering these projects in the following challenges:
Stamp Insanity-Tricked out Treats
Pixie Dust Studio- spooky
