trick 'r treat swap

For Christine's Trick 'r Treat Swap, we were to hand make at least 2 of 3 items (or all of them). 2 were to be Halloween treats, and 1 was supposed to be a Halloween trick.

I loved what Christine sent along to each participant:
This is what I sent (again, 2 treats and 1 trick):
My first treat was a chunky Boo! book:

For my next treat, I made a Spooky tag banner and sent along a skeleton knickknack with it.Finally, for my trick, I covered a little wooden coffin with skull paper, silver paint, and a few ghosts.
Inside of the coffin I put a little screaming monster.

I uploaded a video of the monster.

  2. Jessica....I received your chunky "boo" book and I love it. You do such beautiful work and I can't wait to fill it with some halloween pics and memories!! It is currently being displayed on a vignette on my kitchen table (and looks fabulous there!)
