Still more Halloween treats

Edited to add: please click here for triangle box directions.

Halloween is all about candy and treats, so no wonder I've been absolutely obsessed with making a whole bunch of different treat holders. Tonight it's a triangle box and this was so easy to make! All you need is a 3.5x8.5 piece of pumpkin pie card stock wheeled with the arachnophobia wheel in basic black ink. Fold it up, tie it closed with some striped pumpkin pie ribbon and black gingham ribbon, tie on a tag made with the East, Drink and Be Scary stamp set from the Holiday mini and you're done! How much fun would it be to hand these out to the little munchkins on Halloween?

And speaking of Halloween and treat holders, I have a special October offer to all my Chicagoland readers who love Halloween and stamping as much as I do -- a traveling Halloween workshop. Here's how it works. You gather together your friends, neighbors and family for a fun stamping activity. You decide the combination of quick and easy Halloween treat holders and/or cards you want everyone to make, for a total of 6 projects. Each participant has an option of paying $10 to make the 6 projects or making one project of my choice for free.

Anyone who wants to make the 6 projects must register and pay in advance, but if they place an order of $75 or more on the night of the class, a $10 credit will be applied to their order, so the class will be free! On the night of the class you and all the participants can place orders, though no one is obligated to do so. You will serve as the hostess and will receive all hostess benefits from the purchases made that night. And, as a special October bonus, if sales on the night of the workshop are $350 or more, you will get to choose a stamp set from the fall/winter catalog sampler brochure free over and above the regular hostess benefits.

This is a great way to introduce your friends to stamping through a great class at a fantastic price. But you must act quickly, as I only have a dates in October when I can stage the traveling workshop. Contact me to reserve your workshop date today!
