Serendipity Stamps Blog Challenge - Scor Pal Project

Hello!  Hope everyone is having a fab week!  I'm enjoying the silence after a busy weekend.  Today I've got a neat project featuring Serendipity Stamps.  Mary is always trying to keep the design team on their toes and this time she challenged us to create a Scor Pal project.  She's even going to give away her old - gently used  Scor It to one lucky winner randomly chosen from the DT blogs!  So LEAVE A COMMENT!!   Oh and the sale this week?  Free Shipping for all US orders over $10 from October 3 - 10.

For inspiration she directed us to the Scor Pal web site to pick a project.  Since it's October I'm thinking Halloween and I'm always craving chocolate so I thought a candy bar wrap was just the thing for me.  I hope it stays around long enough for me to give away to my sister - I know she will love this! 
You don't need a Scor Pal to try one of these projects - I have a Martha Stewart score board I picked up at Michael's.  My candy bar was a little bigger than this design was meant for - but after I made one with scrap paper it was easy to adjust the template to the bigger size bar.  (Go figure - I thought everything was getting smaller!).   I dressed up the outside with a bow and and easy to color nostalgic image of some trick or treaters!  I like how the fancy oval frame has little stars - they look like they were just meant for the little cowboy on the left!   
Here's a close up of the inside of the candy wrapper. I fussy cut the ghost and used pop dots to adhere him to the trick or treat sentiment.
And here is the finished package ready to give.   I added a little tulle to the end - to make it a little fancier.  A whole spool is really inexpensive (about $6 for a 6" roll that is 120 feet long) and you only need a little to make an impression.  I used about 10 inches, zig zag folded it and then folded that in half like a fan and then tucked it into the end of the bow.
I hope you'll hop on over to the other design team member blogs and see what they came up with for this challenge!  Just click on their names listed below to jump to their blog.  I know you'll be blown away by the awesome projects they've made!

Fabulous Jeanne - love this! That plaid ribbon is divine and I love the little trick or treaters on the outside and then the cute ghostie on the inside. Brilliant sentiment heehee! The chocolate bar fits in there so perfectly - beautifully made x

Cathy Weber said...

Jeanne, that candy in the beautiful wrapper will never hang around long enough to give to your sister! Although, the wrapper is so pretty, who could even take it apart? I love that beautiful bow and the netting, the cute trick or treaters is an adorable scene, I can picture something similar in my head with my three kids years ago. Great job today.

Love this Jeanne! I want every stamp you used! Uggg. You made me like the outside better than the inside and that is hard to do.

Gorgeous plaid ribbon and tulle!!! Did you add pearls to the bow....I am sooooo.....pearl incompetent....they look fabulous! Wonderful setting for the image...adorable! If you lived in NY things are getting smaller....I think they passed a law that public places couldn't sell a sugared drink over 16oz....really? Loved your son's pic in all his finery!!!

I dream in chocolate Jeanne and this project just makes me happy. However, that bar wouldn't make it to the pretty cover package. I'd gobble it up lol. Love this project and your vintage Halloween images. Your ribbon and bow is stunning! :)
