Playing With Paper Blog Hop!

Hey Folks!

Welcome to the "My Favorite {CTMH} Things" Blog Hop!  Today our theme is Fall or Halloween projects!

Our Playing With Paper team is sharing artwork featuring some of our favorite products from CTMH.  If you have come here from Brittany's blog, then you are on the right path.  If not, start from the beginning with Jayma's blog and work your way through.  :)

Today I have created a candy dish for Halloween.  I used the Moonlight Workshop on the Go (G1051) and the Perfect Fit - Halloween (B1413) stamp set as well as the Cricut Artiste (Z1790) cartridge to cut the dish.


I started by picking the paper I wanted to use out of the Moonlight Workshop on the Go.  Once I cut it out, I scored the lines where appropriate and glued the dish together.  I then used the stamp set that comes with the Moonlight Workshop on the Go to stamp a spider on each lip of the dish.  I added Skittles to showcase what the candy dish would look like.



From there, I used Perfect Fit - Halloween to stamp the sentiment that would stick out of the dish and adhered it to a toothpick.  I think this added to the project a lot.



Although a simple project, I think your guests will really enjoy a couple of these dishes around your house filled with different candies to munch on throughout the party.

Now, hop on over to Jennifer's blog for your next spot.  I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop!  :)  Here's a list of individuals participating in case you get lost along the way.
