I have been working off and on for a week on the Close to My Heart Cricut Spellbound Halloween Party Kit. This has been so much fun! The kit comes with everything you need to make a banner, 8 party favor bag/boxes, 8 cupcake wraps and toppers, and 8 drink wraps except for ink, glue and anything extra you want to add. This is a very picture heavy post :)
This is an overview picture. The sun decided to go behind some clouds so it's not the best. Directions in the kit say to embellish as desired, so I did :)
And here is a picture of the banner. The kit comes with orange and white twine from Close to my heart. But I did not like the way it looked with the black. So I used my Trendy Twine instead. This banner has the Orange Licorice Twine that is orange and black--goes perfectly with the banner colors! I also added Frosted Lace Stickles around the starbursts under the boo; orange marker stitching around the owl circles and colored in some of the owls; white marker accents on the letters. If you click the picture, you can see more up close and the whole banner :)
Here are 2 of the 8 treat bags/boxes. The directions call for you to use the same orange twine that the kit comes with for both. But I did not like the orange/white with the gray bag. So I used Gray Licorice Trendy Twine and it looks so much better! Then I used the same Orange Licorice Trendy Twine from the banner for the orange bag. I added stickles and orange iRock gems to the orange bag and white pen accents and clear iRock gems to the gray. All stamps shown come with the kit--a full set of stamps!
Here's one of the bottle wraps. The only thing I added was a matching twine bow.
And here are the cupcake wrappers and toppers. I pop dotted the bat on, but other than that, nothing was added. I love the pins that go in the cupcakes. And yes, I made cupcakes just so I could show off the holders :) My daughter said I could probably have found something fake to take the picture with, but where is the fun in that?!
You can order this wonderful kit through me--just click on the Close to My Heart link to order yourself, or send me an email and you can get a discount! There is still paper left over and I will have a card up with some of that extra pattern paperfor my Trendy Twine monthly post tomorrow :)
