MPS - "Make Something Cute" Challenge

Robyn over at posted a ton of challenges this week.  I am having a crafting afternoon today, so I figured this would be an easy challenge.  I went straight for the Mini Monsters Cartridge.  I love that cartridge!!  I may have to try and make something from that cartridge everyday this week.  Have a Halloween craft week!  That would lead up to my "Craft Day" I am hosting at my house next Saturday.  I might even throw in a giveaway.  ;)

Here is my "Something Cute".  I cut the treat bag on pg 77.  I used my Gypsy to hide the contours of the face on the front of the bag.  I cut the lil monster on pg 37 at 3" put some googly eyes and Stickles on him, then stuck him on the front of the bag.  The bag was a perfect size to fit 4 Halloween Oreos in it.  :)

Christmas Cards Cartridge

I was really excited about this cartridge.  I thought it would be a great way to make quick and easy cards.  The card was quick and easy, but I wished they had given more instructions about which layers went where.  I made the card just like the example so I could figure out all the layers.  I think this would be a good cartridge to make a video for.  Maybe it would save someone else some paper.  :)  I cut this card and all the layers at 5" and added some Stickles.

Adult Halloween Treat Bags

Treat bags for the "Big Kids"!! I made these treat bags with the Tags, Bags and Boxes Cartridge and the paper is from the DCWV Halloween Stack.  I cut the tags and the "Poison" label using the Happy Hauntings cartridge.  The "Beware" was a rub on I found laying around.  The cute little bottles were only a $1!  :)

Here is the treat bag

And here is the special treat!
