CC Fall Blog Hop

Welcome to the Creative Charms Fall Blog Hop!

If you are hopping over from Laura’s Blog you’re in the right place.
If you are just dropping by and want to start at the beginning,
start at the Creative Charms Blog.

I have a Halloween project to share with you. I put together special gifts for my sons’ teachers and created these tubs to hold everything. Each tub holds some comfy socks, candy, popcorn and a Target Gift Card so they can pick up a scary movie if they like. I also included a treat for their puppy. I added some clear wrap, bow & a tag to package it all up.

a closeup:

Once again my fellow SVG Cuts DT member Thienly, inspired me. Check out her movie theme Halloween party here. I sized the popcorn tub down a bit to accommodate the contents.

I used Vintage Jewel Brads, Vintage Halloween Self-Adhesive Metal Frames, & Gradient Gems from Creative Charms.

I used SVG Cuts Summer Blockbuster SVG Kit to create the tub - cut on my Cricut using SCAL. Stamps are from Punkin' Patch Stamps. Papers from Midnight Spell by DCWV.

Are you ready for your Christmas Crafting? How about a giveaway? Please follow me and leave me a comment before Sunday at 6pm. Plus you’ll have a chance to win one of the random Creative Charms giveaways by leaving a comment on my blog.
