Trick or Treat, Scary and Sweet . . .

     a verse in our wonderful Grateful Greetings stamp set but also the perfect intro for today's entry. As I prepare my children's costumes to go trick or treating, I made a few treats for their school mates and wanted to share with you. (This matchbook treat was inspired by Becky Robert's.) I didn't want to put too much on it because they are going to children and most likely, the first thing they'll do is rip it right open to get to the candy. still has to be CUTE!

  1. Cut basic black card stock to 2-3/4" x 8-1/2". 
  2. Score along the long side (8-1/2") at 1", 5", and 5-1/4".
  3. Fold at the score lines.
  4. Fold the 1" tab up and staple into place. (This will be the flap where you'll tuck the top cover into.)
  5. Cut Cast-A-Spell Designer Series Paper to 2" x 2-3/4"
  6. Layer onto the top of the front flap and close.
  7. Cut Whisper White card stock to 3/4" x 2-3/4". 
  8. Using Old Olive Classic Ink, stamp the verse onto the Whisper White card stock and layer over the bottom front flap, covering the staple.
  9. Punch a scallop circle of Elegant Eggplant. 
  10. Punch a 1-3/4" circle of Old Olive.
  11. Using Basic Black classic ink, stamp the "boo" ghost image onto Whisper White card stock and punch out using the 1-1/4" circle.
  12. Layer the ghost using stampin' dimensionals onto the Old Olive circle, then onto the Elegant Eggplant scallop circle.
  13. Cut a small strip of Old Olive grosgrain ribbon, fold in half to make a "V", and tape to back of Elegant Eggplant scallop circle. Trim edges.
  14. Adhere the entire piece onto the matchbook with stampin' dimensional. 
*Don't forget the candy!*
