TREAT word album!

I had to get a little festive for Halloween with a TREAT word album!

OKAY! Now that you've seen all those photos... here's some of the details of what's what.

For the pumpkins, I used the 1 3/8" circle punch and large oval punch. I hand folded them, and on some I used the Versamarker Pen to draw over the creases, or around the pumpkins, and I used hemp twine for their stems. The treat bag is the 1 1/4" square punch, with the "Trick or Treat" part of the Trick or treat, scary and sweet stamp, using VersaMark. I used hemp twine again for the handles. The tootsie roll inspired "sweets" are made from the 1 1/4" square punch. I wrapped the square around a pencil to give it some bend, then rolled it into a tighter roll, and used Sticky Strip to hold it down. For the edges of the sweets, I used the same square punch and snipped off a corner to make a triangle, used sticky strip again to tape it to the sweet, and snipped a frayed look on the edge. On the last page, I made the leaves using the 1 3/8" circle punch. Punch the circle once, then put the circle about half way into the punch and punch again. The tombstones are made with the Designer Label punch. I punched them out, and trimmed off the sides, then used VersaMarker pen to make the RIP designs.
