WM Fanatics Challenge #3 -Halloween

Are you a Waltzingmouse Fanatic? Did you know there is a new Waltzingmouse Challenge site?   Well there is!!!   Its the Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge!   The challenge was started up by two friends with a mutual love of Waltzingmouse stamps who decided to start a "fan" challenge for crafters who also love the stamps (Deborah - from Deborah's Gems and Tara - from Craftilicious).  This is only Challenge #3 (I'm late to the party as usual)  and  this time you are asked to create a Halloween Themed project using your Waltzingmouse Stamps of course!!  I love seeing projects for different ways to use my sets.   
Halloween is always a big deal at my house and it is not unusual for us to get up to 200 trick or treaters if the weather is nice.   I always make "special" little treats for my neighbors, and family. Who wouldn't love a little package of their favorite chocolates all dressed up in a fancy package?    These might look fancy but they were super easy to make.  The little box is a Sizzix die cut that I dressed up with some stamped medallions.  The medallions would look great on any little box or bag.

No bow here - just thread the ribbon through a hole and then tie some twine threaded through a button around the ribbon.  The bitty tag is just tucked under the button with a sticky dot.   Here's the finished goodie bags

 I hope you will check out the new challenge.

Stamps;  Waltzingmouse Victorian Frippery, Hocus Pocus
Dies:  Sizzix XL Bag, Scallop Circle, Spellbinder Standard Circles, Petite Scallop Nested Pennants, Standard Circles
