An Oldie, but a GOODIE . . .

Hi, all my crafty friends and family!!!

How is everyone doing this fine Fall day?   Pretty good here.  The weather has actually been nice the past two days . . . low to mid 60s during the day and 40s at night.  Not too bad . . . plus, it's been the weather to get a Salted Caramel Latte from Starbucks.  I have been "patiently" waiting for it to get cool enough for me to have the warm drinks from there . . . okay, not so "patiently". lol

Anyway, today I want to share a project I did for PaperTemptress .last week  . . for some reason it didn't post here on my blog like it should have, so I'm adding a comment or two to update it and will get it posted here shortly.

The project I did is an "oldie but a goodie" project . . . candy bar covers.  It's one I've done many times over the past couple years and give to friends and their children.  I especially LOVE to make them during the Halloween season . . . plus, with this one, it helps me use up some of my smaller PaperTemptress scraps.  


This is such an "easy, peasy" project as one of my on-line friends would say. Just take a 6x6in piece of patterned or solid-colored paper and wrap around a regular size candy bar (I used Hershey's Milk Chocolate) and then decorate it.  

For this project I used my bat punch from EKsuccess and punched four (4) bats (two for each candy bar since I layer them for more definition) from my scraps of Onyx Mica/Metallic paper from PaperTemptress.  Then layered them and added googly eye. The sentiments are some a friend from my LSS had leftover . . . and VOILA! I was done.

I've also used orange paper to make it look like a pumpkin or strips of torn white paper inked to look like a mummy . . . and I just did another using Green Ruche paper from PaperTemptress to make Frankenstein.  The possibilities are endless. I've even done this on mini-candy bars.  So cute in a little candy dish. :)

Hope you have been inspired to do your own fun candy bar covers 
. . . have a GREAT day!!!

Till the next time I'm up in the night.
