Blog Candy Coming Soon

I've been thinking about having a Ben Franklin Craft Club 'blog candy' lucky drawing for awhile. With Halloween on the way I thought it would be the perfect time to have my first blog candy giveaway. It will start in a few days and the winner will be announced on Halloween. Sometime during the week I will give the specifics and show you the blog candy. The photo you see here shows the gift card holder (the BFC gift card will be part of the candy) and a treat bag with some of the blog candy in it. I had fun making the shaker gift card holder. It was easy to do because I used the Sizzix ornate frame to cut a frame of black foam and one of black cardstock. A piece of acetate was sandwiched and glued between the two frames. The confetti bones (MS) were placed on top of the holder before the windowed frame was glued down. I was able to locate and purchase only the web corner punch (MS)( I guess the side web punch sold out.) so I punched the boo design (MS) on each side of the cobweb. I think it was a happy improvised solution. One thing that I liked about the boo paper punch is that it is designed to punch a long strip but has hinged side wings that fold in making it compact unlike the other Martha Stewart strip punches. If time permits I will write up the instructions for the gift card holder. Oh, the topper for the bag is actually a MS cupcake liner. There were also cute owl Halloween cupcake liners in the same package with the witch ones. Okay, please visit this blog again some time this week so you can find out how to enter the Halloween blog candy lucky drawing.
