Here is my CANDY-licious project...


While I was making this tag I was reminded of all the fun times my sistar and I had on Halloween.  We loved to dress up.  Usually we were 'Hobos.'  We would rummage through our father's old suit coats, then add some fabric patches with gaudy stitching (to be removed later), smudge up our faces and draw exagerated features, then it was off to the streets.  When we were pretty young my mother had gotten us matching Peter Pan pajamas.  These doubled as our Halloween costumes.  When I got older my hubby and I dressed up as a dog and a cat, respectively.  We called ourselves the 'Party Animals.'  Our costumes were complete with streamers, party horn, hat and noise maker.  We won the costume contest that year.  If you are dressing up this year I hope you have a great time.

Here are the details of my project:
Tag Size:  4.5"
Tag:  ELEGANT EDGES, pg 46, Heart2-s, cut @ 4.5" using Oblong and Shadow features.
Boo:  SIMPLY CHARMED, pg 58, Headstne cut @ 1.5" using Word feature.
Candy:  SIMPLY CHARMED, pg 62, Candy, cut @ 1.5" + Layer 1 and Layer 2.
Cardstock:  The Paper Company (White), DCWV (Ghosts & Goblins Cardstock Matstack - Glitter Lime Green, Deep Orange, Purple and Light Gray)
Patterned Paper:  DCWV (The Halloween & Fall Stack - Candy Border)
Ink:  Tsukineko (Momento - Tuxedo Black)

Like the Halloween tag. Especially like the use of the candy pieces on the BOO sentiment. Thanks for sharing the details on how to make. I'm going to CASE your tag since I have those Cricut cartridges. Great to be part of PDE DT. Happy Halloween. Hope you get lots of treats.
