You Trick, I Treat!

Hello – so happy that you decided to visit my blog today 🙂

I have some fun projects to show you – Halloween of course 😉

Very recently Sandy of Simply Crafty SVGs released a series of K Cup Holders and instantly I started wondering about how to make something else with these. We don’t have K Cups in Denmark (all kinds of other Coffee Capsules though) so what could I put in these awesome holders?

Well change the size of the holes in them and they will fit perfectly for Ferrero Rocher chocolates!

And dress them in Halloween papers – then Voila! Ready to go! Perfect for Trick or Treaters or maybe as a hostess gift.

First of is the K Cup Holder (2 Cup) :

I made this funny and kid-friendly….kind of 😉

I used AC Cardstock in Black, Chocolate, Latte and Melon, red and white pearl paper and decorated with Doodlebug Paper “BooVille” and some Doodlebug Sprinkles that matched.

The little owl whoooo(‘s) missing his eyes, is from the Silhouette Design Store Design ID #31986 (designed by Susie Hildebrandt)

I found the tag and text in the Silhouette Design Store too – Tag: Design ID #31986 (designed by Sweet Afton) and text: Design ID #66686 (designed by Sandi Idleman) I used a white sketchpen to draw on the tag.

I used some red/white twine to tied the tag onto the holder.

Cute right? 🙂

Next I made a little more adult holder:

This is the same holder as before and for this one I used AC Cardstock in Black and Melon, Bazzill Swiss Dot Paper in Green and decorated with Bobunny paper “Wonderfully Wicked” and white and green pearl paper.

The Toads I found in the Cricut design Store (from the Potions and Spells Cartridge)

The label – Wart of Toad – I found online. There are thousands so take your pick! It’s a print and cut label.

I decided to keep using the tag and text from before – just seems so fitting. This one is decorated with some Doodlebug Sprinkles in Matte and matching colors. I used green and white twine for tying the label onto the holder.

Finally I made the Triangles K Cup Holder:

This one is also a bit more adult and so much fun due to the shape 🙂

I used AC Cardstock in Black for this one, white and copper colored pearl paper and patterned paper from Making Memories – “Spellbound” (very old collection)

This holder was of course a bit more challenging to assemble but not hard at all.

This label is also one I found online – those chocolates could look like brains especially without the paper 😀

Of course I used the same tag again and the tiny spider is from Doodlebug. It’s tied with white and black twine.

So I had fun with these K Cup Holders and found another use for them. I can’t wait to see what YOU come up with!

Thanks for visiting today – more Halloween coming up soon 😀

Bewitched Cake Stand

Hello… (waving enthusiastically) … just sneaking in today to show you a very fun project I’ve been working on this last week. 🙂

I got the idea from a friend who showed me this picture:

40684094_241544659753572_7144910669375078400_n

First I thought “corny” but then I kept thinking about it and wondering if it could be made in paper. And….yeah it could!

Roaming through files I found that SVG Attic had the right files for it, so I started building.

I wanted mine to be a Halloween inspired Cake Stand and I gathered the files I needed for this: The 3D Witches Boot from the JGW Bewitched Botique kit, the Sunflower 3D Cake Stand from the JGW Sunflower Sunshine kit and the Cats & Pumpkins Hollow Centers Wreath.

I also made the Mini-Candy Cauldron also from the JGW Bewitched Botique kit to sit on top of the stand – I would have liked a cupcake but just didn’t feel like baking 😉

This is how it turned out:

DSC_0009

It’s made from AC Cardstock in Leaf, Black, Melon, Grape, Carrot and Charcoal along with some Purple Pearl Paper, Gold Foiled Cardstock and patterned paper from Doodlebug’s Collections “Boos and Brews” and “Booville”

I used the stem part from the Cake Stand to make the legs (just made it a bit longer) and added some glitter tape onto for striped socks. Inside the legs are two 3/4″ dowels for support.

The top part of the cake stand is reinforced underneath with 4 platform shaped pieces and the legs are glued unto it with hot glue. I chose to use the Cat and Pumpkin Wreath to place on the top for a fun decoration.

The boots are downsized by 50% to fit the size of the Stand and the legs are glued into them also with hot glue. I added some glas stones into the boots for weight so the whole stand gets more sturdy.

I used twine, various Doodlebug sprinkles and the small patches etc. that comes along with the boots.

For the Cauldron I used gold foiled cardstock for the handle and chose to use the spider tag on which I doodled two small eyes and added a black gem.

DSC_0011

Actually it’s a pretty easy projects when you think about it – it’s all about getting that idea. Thank you Sandy for providing me with it. ❤

Thanks for joining me today – I really hope you like this wacky project. A fun centerpiece on the Halloween table or as decor in the living room….endless possibilities. 🙂

The Candy Gang…..

Hello again 🙂

I just can’t believe all the amazing Halloween projects out there, just waiting to be made. I am really kept busy at the moment 🙂

This time I want to show you my edition of SVG Cuts Candy Gang SVG Kit

DSC_0002

Just like the cute Halloween Lanterns I showed yesterday, these are made of AC Cardstock and Doodlebug Design Paper “Boos & Brews” and “BooVille”. The handles are pipe cleaners and I added a twinkle in their eyes with a white Sharpie.

They are soooo easy to make and would be so awesome for all the cute Trick or Treaters out there. I think I know a couple who will love theses 😉

Here’s some close-ups of each bag:

Thanks for vistiting me again. Please leave me a small comment. I just can’t promise I’m done with the Halloween stuff, because there is still a whole lot out there to be made, but I am starting to think about Christmas….Must. Concentrate. About. Christm…..Ooooooh look Halloween 😀

Too Cute To Spook

Hello and happy Sunday 🙂

Today I want to show you the cute Halloween Lanterns I made from the SDS Glowing Halloween kit

SDS Glowing Halloween

I wanted them to be cute and not too scary as I am giving them to a special Family School that I attend with my youngest son who has ADHD. This school only has about 8 families at a time – mostly Mother and child and is a place where children who has difficulties being in their own school/class can come and get help with these difficulties.

So I made the lanterns with AC Cardstock in Black, Cricket, Blossom, White and Squash along with patterned paper from Doodlebug’s “Boos and Brews” and “BooVille” – these papers are just perfect for this project…..don’t you think?

As I know that the lights in  these lanterns will be turned on and off every day and this might cause the bottom contraption to tear,  I adjusted the bottom slightly to make an easier access for the candle.

Here’s how and what I did on my Silhouette Cameo:

1. I placed the shape (for keeping the candle in place) on top of the bottom shape and chose “release compound path.”

2. Then I removed the square and left the circle in the bottom shape.

3. I then chose “release compound path” on the bottom shape.

IMG_8452

4. I removed the square from the bottom shape and chose “make compound path” on the remaining shapes.

IMG_8455

5. This is what it should look like.

6. I finally cut out the piece along with 4-5 shapes for the candle-holding.

IMG_8457

This way the candle rests on the table and is easily accessible to turn on and off. Should you want to hang the lantern instead, do not use this method as nothing is holding the candle.

I really can’t wait to see the kids reaction to these cute colorful lanterns. Halloween is still a pretty new thing here in Denmark but its becoming more and more normal year after year. Still there is a HUGE lack of Halloween decor and I’ve taken it on as my personal mission to make and bring in more of it everywhere I go 😀

Meet my Mom…..

Today I want to show you the little cutesy 3D spider I made from the JGW 3D Witch kit.

DSC_0002

I made him of Black AC Cardstock and he’s sooo easy to assemble. Otherwise looky here: Needles ‘n’ Knowledge – spider assembly. The eyes are from Doodlebug Design BooVille Shape Sprinkles.

He is just perfect and matches the rest of my HUGE Halloween decor collection 😀

But wait…..what????? EEK!!!! Here’s Mommy…..

DSC_0005

You can make the spider almost as big as you want but I just enlarged her so her legs fitted the 12×12 mat and the body likewise.

They do make a cute pair – don’t they?

And here’s Daddy 😀

DSC_0005

I guess he’s lucky to still be alive as female spiders usually eat their mate after mating. He does look a bit terrified so maybe the danger isn’t over yet 😀

Here’s a pic of the “happy” family ❤

Thanks for joining me today – hope you’re not too afraid of my spiders 😀
