Ghostly Gifts


Good Morning!  Just a quick post today to share with you the little gifts my daughter will be giving her classmates for Halloween.  I prefer giving pencils over candy because I figure the kids will be getting enough of that on Saturday.  I made 2 1/4 tags and used my favourite Carved and Candlelit stamp set (retired) and sentiment from my new but well used Grateful Greetings set.  I used inexpensive scraps and white paper.  I glued black tabs around the pencil first and then glued that tab between the two layers of the tag.  It took me about an hour and a bit to make 17 of them....while I was surfing ebay.  So what do you think?  I'm sure kids would rather have candy but I think parents (and teachers) will be grateful for something different.

  1. Great gift idea, Laural!! The tags are so pretty!!! You can totally use the idea for napkin rings as well (just by changing the sentiment). TFS!!
