Whimsical Wednesday Blog Hop!!!!

Hello everyone and welcome to the Whimsical Wednesdays Blog Hop! If you came here from Chloe, then you're in the right place. If not, you will want to start at the begining at Whimsical Wednesdays so you won't miss a thing! There are a TON of great prizes up for grabs! Here is the list:

1. Trendy Twine:  Original Sample Pack

2. Trade Fish Designs:  Rest In Peace Stamp Set

3. Prairie Bird Boutique:  One bundle of Shabby Crinkle Ribbon-you get to chose the bundle.

AND FOR THE GRAND PRIZE.....
The grand prize for the hop is from PSA Essentials. It is a stamp package valued at MSRP $75.00 and includes the Stamper Body, A Peal and Stick Stamp Set, One customized stamp, and an Orange/Black Inker. In order to be eligible for the blog candy you must leave a comment on each blog and then go back to Whimsical Wednesday at the end of the hop and leave a comment.

O.K. now on to my projects! I bought all these cute mini Halloween anti-bacterial gels at Bath And Body Works and thought these would make such cute treats for a friend, sister, mom, ect. It might not be candy, but what a nice treat this would be. I found this wonderful tutorial on how to make the box's HERE. I did change the pattern a little. Instead of using a punch for the hole to hold the gel, I just cut out a square. The punched hole wasn't big enough to get the bottle into. For each gift box, I made a matching card to go with. I am going to list the supplies for each set. All of the crinkle ribbon is from Prairie Bird Boutique and all the sentiment stamps are from My Craft Spots Happy Haunting set.

Dracula:
$1 Draculs stamp from Michaels colored with Copic Markers
Nestability Lacey Circles and Lacey Squares die
Fiskers Oval Punch and Scallop Oval Punch
Paper is from Recollections Midnight Magic stack

Witch's Shoe: (This is not my original idea! You can find a great tutorial HERE on how to make this shoe)
The shoe was cut from Happy Hauntings
SUPER thick black glitter paper
Crinkle Ribbon
Scallop Scissors
Martha Stewart Drippy Goo Punch

Ghost:
Ghost stamp is from Peachy Keens Halloween Mini's set colored with Copic markers
Nestabilities Lacey Circles and Lacey Squares Die
Crinkle Ribbon

I hope you all enjoyed my projects and I didn't overload you too bad! LOL! Don't forget to leave comments on all the blogs and at Whimsical Wednesdays to qualify for the great prizes! Now you're off to the super talented Shelly!
