Happy Saturday Everyone and it's time for another Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential Challenge! Are you ready for this one??? Today's challenge is TREAT CONTAINERS! How much fun is that!! Be sure to pop on over to the challenge blog for all the details and be sure to check out the other Diva's blogs (listed on my sidebar) for some amazing creations. Some ladies have even done tutorials or linked you to a tutorial. Thanks Ladies!!!
Now, on to my creations! Keeping in mind I need a LOT OF PRACTICE with these types of projects ... please be kind, LOL!!! The idea for this first Treat Container came from my own imagination (such as it is, teehee). I used a Giant Eagle Quart size storage zip top bag for my base container. Using a strip of cardboard covered with Halloween paper, I've made a flat bottom for inside the bag (see insert). Using my SU Top Note die, I created the topper then simply attached these adorable chipboard Halloween characters (gift from my friend Terri Snode, Terri's Cards 'n More) for decoration. A very SIMPLISTIC container but I have no doubt my grandson will LOVE it!!!
For my 2nd creation I went looking for more STRUCTURED help. A friend recently sent me an email with a link to Dawn's Stamping Thoughts blog and there I found TONS of creative ideas! While looking through the list, I noticed she had a Movers & Shapers Treat Holder video. I viewed it and used it as the basis for my Snicker's Holder here.
The papers I have used are from the Debbie Mumm Harvest & Holiday pack purchased at JoAnn's and the bat is another diecut chipboard given to me by my friend Terri. I've used Nestabilities Classic Ovals and Scallop Ovals for the window on the front, to expose the goodies available inside. The Snickers bars are inside a smaller zip top bag that I had in my stash from something I've purchased along the way (can't throw ANYTHING away you know, teehee)!
Well, that's it for my creations ... NOW IT'S YOUR TURN!!
