HALLOWEEN " Popcorn Mini Pouch"

As I was making up Halloween goodies to send to my family, I couldn't help but think to myself, "This would be a great idea to share in my post this month."  So, here goes:

Using assorted paper lines, I created two mini book/card albums, a card, and a pouch to hold a popcorn mini bag and one of the mini books.

The stickers by Simple Stories - Take a Hike - I had actually originally bought these for another project.  Yet when I saw the sticker that says, "Shh... did you hear that?", the first thing that came to mind was telling ghost stories while camping, and I knew I should use these stickers for my Halloween goodies.

Using one 12 x 12 sheet by Fancy Pants Designs - Oct 31 paper, I made the pouch, added the stickers by Simple Stories, and stamped and cut out the ghost, bat, and moon using Lawn Fawn - Happy Haunting.  I then added an eyelet, hemp string, and a bottom to hold it closed.

On the first mini, I made a pocket using the fence.  I then added a Tag and Polaroid that I stamped.  It can be colored, or you can just place your favorite photo over the stamped image.

In my previous Be SPOOKTACULAR post, I mentioned that the mini card album would be a nice activity for a children's party at this time of year by just using the stamps and then leaving it for the children to color.

Using this idea and placing your favorite photo in the Polaroid, along with your thoughts of the night would make a great memory keepsake for years to come.
