More Tunnel Cards and the
Best of Pinterest Pins

My Halloween cards are based on the tunnel card idea presented by Frenchie Stamps and my previous post HERE. They are so fun to make! Two versions are shown below:

Second Version:

Hello Stamp:
Pennant Parade by SU

Tree Stamp: 
Home Is Where the Haunt Is by SU

Bird Stamp:
Branch Out by SU

Bat Punch:
Martha Stewart

I free-hand cut a mask for the lower half sponging on the inside panel and made a smaller version for the mask on the outside oval.

Here are a few more favorite pins this past week that I'll be making for Thanksgiving giving:

Peppermint Patty Sunflowers or whatever flower you want or wedding circles.  Mints come in bulk from Costco.  I've made/sold a bunch of these in different designs.:

Very Best of Pinterest Pins

I LOVE this versatile favor and mini tote box from Pinterest that will hold two fun size candy bars or a small gift.

Dawn has a wonderful how-to video for this box, too.

I had fun making several fall and Christmas versions:

The "sweet" oval is raised with foam squares
and was the oval punched out at the box top.

On the next version, I added a little flower to the tag:

It turned out to be the perfect touch!

My coworker, Donna, gave me several Halloween 3D stickers and stamps and they were the perfect thing for my Halloween Kit Kat boxes:

...and several made by my talented neighbor, Ava:

Thank you, Becky! You are so kind to share your designs!

Ava also made these projects with me:

We had fun making a batch of these jars for our neighbors! I have since found out that the marshmallows dry out after a few days in the jar and they also make the Bugles soft, so leave those out ^_^

Here are a few more fall gift jar ideas:
