Do you Boo?

Hi! Welcome to another round of blog hopping with the Glitter Queens.  Most likely you're visiting me first from Dawn's website.  She is our upline and a constant source of inspiration and support.  This time around we are featuring some fall holiday projects.  I'll be using 2 stamp sets for Halloween projects.  They are Batty for You and Sweet Centers.  I'll give more in depth measurements and directions after the hop is over but if you have any immediate needs please leave a comment.  Be sure to leave a comment also for a chance to win blog candy (see post below).
This first project is a door hanger.  If you have nice neighbors you might be familiar with being "boo-ed".  This door hanger features a sweet centers cup filled with orange tic-tacs.  The orange ribbon is currently on the clearance rack...which reminds me I need to get some more :).  The bottom medallion is from the frightful sight DSP.
Here is the back of the hanger.  The mechanism to pull it up and get the tic tacs out plus a pocket to hold an extra treat.   I picked up these certificates for a free frosty at Wendy's.  You get 10 certificates for a dollar.

My next project is a matchbook card featuring a jumbo paperclip bookmark.  I love making these bookmarks and they are great gifts for school friends if you are trying to stay away from giving out candy...or in my house you're afraid to buy too much candy ahead of time...I love little candy:)
Well I hope you've enjoyed this first day.  Please be sure to come back tomorrow for 2 more "spook-tacular" projects.  Be sure to leave a comment for your chance to get your hands on those fantastic big buttons.
Now make sure you head off to Dee's place and see what fabulous projects she has come up with.
If you lose your way make sure to stop by all the Glitter Queens

  8. Great ideas. Being boo-ed sounds like fun. In May we, as kids, would make May Baskets, filled with goodies, hang on someones door, ring bell, run, and hope its a surprise.
