I got a hold of Martha Stewart’s new Handmade Holiday Crafts book and these were in there… so cute!! I asked a couple of friends to come over (I call them my “committee” but they don’t really know that I consider them my permanent helpers. Don’t tell them or they will stop taking my calls) and we hammered these out in a couple of hours. They are just a double layer of 10 inch circles cut from tissue paper (Martha uses crepe paper but that’s not readily available in big sheets and I didn’t want to have to order anything. Tissue paper worked great). Fill the circle with goodies, wrap up and secure the top with tape. We used masking tape and then went over it with floral tape for the stem since floral tape is my new nemesis and doesn’t stick very well. I then created some little 2″ tags in Photoshop, printed and tied them on. I can’t wait to see these all lined up in the teachers’ boxes!
We also made our Mummy Juicebox Army I talked about for the upcoming class party. Instructions can be found HERE. We used white duct tape that we ripped in half lengthwise instead of white electrical tape. I LOVED making these, by the way. So easy and you can’t mess them up. I squealed at each one’s cuteness upon completion.
I also finished making these Rice Krispie Ghost Pops for the party as well…
Super easy using the pre-made Rice Krispie treats. I just squished the tops of them a little to round them out. Instructions found HERE.
I adore checking things off my to-do list.
PS If I ever come to you and ask “Why is my son so screwed up? Why does he hate me? Why is “mom’s blog” a dirty word to him?” Please point me back to this…..
In my defense, I wasn’t “feelin'” the green shirt for my Halloween treats… I have no explanation on the face thing though.
