More Halloween Shopping at BFC

Although I thought that I had exhausted my Halloween creative urges, I took a look at the new Martha Stewart punches and I could not keep them out of my shopping basket. The new larger more realistic spider will be good with the web punch and the large skull punch I plan to use with the confetti bones. The Martha Stewart spider web felt ribbon roll and cupcake liners quickly went into my shopping basket because I can think of so many ways to use them. (Maybe the liners will actually be used for cupcakes or muffins but I like the graffic look of the design and the translucency of the paper so I will probably incorporate them into cards or treat bags. Hero Arts now has cute single clear Halloween (Christmas and all occasion stamps, too) that come with rhinestones so I had to buy a few of those. Oh, as I do every year, I picked up a several packages of Dress It Up decorative Halloween buttons because they are a great way to embellish my crafts with minimal expense. (The shanks can easily be cut off the buttons if you want to glue them down. The 12 x12 paper in the background is from American Crafts. At first I thought they were odd colored but now I like the subdued look because they will allow the embellishments to stand out. I still have a couple of weeks to make treat bags in time for Halloween, but I better get going. Hope you'll get going, Ben Franklin Crafts for all your Halloween craft supplies.
