Spooky Treats for Trick or Treat!

I'm so happy that it's Wednesday! 
 If I stand on my tippy toes, 
I can almost see the weekend from here!
Another reason to be really happy that it's Wednesday, 
is that it's time for a brand new challenge at
This week our challenge is 
Spooky Treats!
I had the best time making my very first treat basket with 
Fresh Brewed Designs
and  my Stampin Up  top note die.
There are three mini Snickers bars tucked inside!

In this picture, I just pulled them up so you could get an idea of what this little basket will hold.
The snicker bars are no longer in the basket because I ate them!
I really couldn't help myself.
Fresh Brewed Designs "My Monster" digi stamp colored with my copic markers
SU Top Note Die
scalloped oval nestability
Sizzix tag die
I used all scrap papers on this project
The cupcake ribbon is old too and I'm so sorry that I couldn't find a brand on it.
The thin orange stitched ribbon is a-muse
I embossed with my SU dot folder
I cut out two top note die shapes
then I cut out two -2 3/4" by 3"  inch wide stripes of paper for the two
sides and  one 3 3/4" by 3" wide for the bottom.  
I creased and folded the 3" wide strips at one inch on both sides. 
Then I cut out an additional 1" wide strip for the handle
I really should try to do some tutorials with pictures or video in the future.
The thing is, it's late and I just got home from a mandatory workshop that I needed to attend for my childcare/preschool and truthfully, I'm really tired.
So.....I hope to make this basket again and take pictures of each step along the way for you to follow along with.
By the way..........Have you checked out all of the absolutely adorable Halloween images that

  1. Another Awesome Post filled with wonderful information, smiles and giggles, and a BEAUTIFUL project! Fantastic creation. I love the papers and the ribbons. I know what you mean about being pressed for time too! Most of the time I do not think of doing that or measuring until after the fact.. then it is too late :(

    I love your spooky sweet treat bag! My Monster looks sooo happy to be showing off those yummy sweets. I think you need a refill to keep you going from day to day though! This can be your secret stash holder :D hehehe
