There's not much time left!

Happy Friday! I'm always happy for Friday to come along, but today I'm feeling a bit stressed! I'm having a Halloween Party, okay, my kids are having a Halloween Party tomorrow night! I just went to the store to pick up some wonderful treats to snack on and prizes for best costume and games. Hmmm... I wonder if I'm missing anything:

Let's see... we got the invitations out earlier in the week:

I made sure to decorate:

I even made some fun little treat containers for the kids:

I have my costume ready... I think I've got it all covered. I just have the pesky feeling I'm forgetting something! I know what will take my mind off of that! I'll share with you how I made my treat containers! You're going to get a kick out of this! Any ideas what they are made from?

Take a closer look:

Here is the front

Here is the back

Still don't know? I bet you recognize this:

Yes, I did it! The ultimate in recycling! I used a toilet paper roll! All you have to do is lay something heavy on it to flatten it. I used a box with paper in it, but anything heavy will work!

After a couple of days you have the perfect treat tag container!

Cover it with paper and embellish to your heart's desire! You can even make a few of them and turn it into an album! Your friends will get a kick out of it when you tell them what it's made from!

I know what I forgot!! I forgot to tell you that I used Echo Park Happy Halloween for everything I made for my party! I mixed in some Queen & Co., Petaloo and Basic Grey from my stash as well! Now I've remembered everything!

Have a safe and fun Halloween and don't forget to enter our Prima Flower Giveaway!

Happy (Halloween) Weekend!


  1. Wow!! You've been busy!! Love it all! That banner is awesome! Quick tip: you can run the tp roll through your cuttlebug or any embossing machine, it flattens it pretty good and alot faster
