2 Pockets-full of Halloween Sweets


Here is a sweet Halloween package I made for my niece Gabby - she's getting a bunch of goodies during my visit in just 5 more weeks!  For this, I used my Trick or Sweet set by Taylored Expressions and the Halloween Key Ingredients, which are sold separately in the store but are a MUST HAVE since everything coordinates taking your guesswork away when you sit down to make your projects.  I made this little pocket present, if you will with the bellyband around it and when you remove it...
there is a set of hair ties peeking through.
here they are close-up.  I used polyshrink for the charms, coloring them in with my prismacolor pencils and attached coordinating ribbons & bows underneath.  I used E6000 (industrial strength glue) which really holds!!  Gabby has a sweet little hat box full of her hair bows & ties that she picks out when she's getting dressed.  I hope she wants to wear these for Halloween!  I used the sturdy cardboard the hair ties came on that I picked up at the Dollar Tree, covering it with the patterned paper, attaching a tab punch so they can be pulled out easily to keep the hair ties in place.

Next up is a more traditional pocket card also using the key ingredients.  Inside when you pull on the tab punch is...

a packet of pumpkin patch orange pop rocks!  Remember eating these as a kid?  I also remember some old urband legend or old wive's tales about these being dangerous to eat or combining them with a carbonated soda was not good or something. However I never heard of anyone dying from eating them.  Perhaps they are more adult-oriented treat, I think these will go to John instead of Gabby. 

I hope you liked these other ideas for using the Trick or Sweet set.  Don't forget about:
