Halloween Bright

Yes, this paper is making an appearance on my blog again. I just cannot stop using it and find myself reaching for it more than any other Designer Series Paper (DSP). Whilst on this occasion, I was thinking of Halloween – I didn’t want to go full Halloween and wanted to introduce a colour not often linked to the occasion. So I reached for another fave of mine, Magenta Madness. I’ve already had to top up my Magenta Madness cardstock as I’ve used it that much!

This little pouch was made with trick or treating in mind, we get quite a few visitors each year and always give our little treats or gifts to the children who knock on our door. However, this year we may have to adapt our gifts to suit the restrictions that Covid-19 has brought about – this is where I have introduced the pouch. It is a good size for a pack of small sweeties or a fun size chocolate bar to fit in, but means you can pass them out without others touching them.

I decorated mine with matching Magenta Madness ribbon and a sentiment from the Banner Year stamp set. The sentiment is such a perfect fit for the pouch and looks pretty finished with the Iridescent Pearls.

Do you do anything for Halloween at all? Or is it perhaps an occasion not celebrated by yourselves?

Best Wishes,
