Quick and easy Halloween favors


I love making favors for the kids whenever possible and that's why I love my stamp club that I attend once a month. It's a fun night to spend with friends learning new ideas for cards, scrapbooking and my favorite, favors. This past meeting we made these adorable gum wrappers, and they only take a few minutes to make.

To make them cut a square piece of patterned paper 2 7/8 X 2 7/8 then score at 2 1/2 on both sides, 1 5/8 and 1 2/8 and wrap around your 5 stick pack of gum

Another fun favor that I made quite frequently for the kids was spray painting and decorating a can. I would spend the year collecting cans and then during Halloween I would be spray painting 50+ cans to have one for each of the kids classrooms and the teacher and office help. After spray painting just apply vines and a pumpkin face with puffy paints. Once everything was dry I would add tissue paper and fill with treats.

I have been waiting for you to post Tina! ;) Now do tell....how do you get such a great image when you stamped your lil' spider. I have that same stamp and mine never gets this solid looking on the body area. I must be doing something wrong.
I just loooooove all the great lil' treats I find here :)

Thanks! :) - I can't think of any tricks in my stamping, I think it was a new stamp pad though?

Heather--try stamping with a magazine underneath for a little cush. It helps me sometimes!
