With Halloween right around the corner, the CSS design team is offering up our best ideas for making the holiday "no trick" and "all treat."
For my first offering, I've taken snack-sized sandwich bags and filled them with yucky-looking popcorn - perfect for the year's spookiest night. I made a kettle-corn topping for the popcorn, but dyed it green in some spots before baking the whole thing in the oven. The kids refused to try it at first, I had to tell them to close their eyes and take a bite - hee. Its sugary sweetness won them over in the end!
I used the new comic book background, in orange, but masked out a spot to stamp the critter-in-costume (using the new "little critter dress up" set.) Some spooky black shading completed this first treat option.
build-a-critter" owl shape twice for each treat...er.... pouch. Then, mustaches, fangs, and mummy wraps for all! I die-cut all of the fashion accessories (from the new "build a critter dress up dies") and glued them on, along with a set of large, beady, googly eyes.
I sewed around the edge of the treat....er.... pouch, and, before sewing it up completely, stuffed it with treats.
The kid who gets the treat will have to do this:
Yup, ripped right into my mummy (thank God I spelled that mummy and not mommy...) and found some yummy tootsie rolls and halloween lollipops.
