Teacher "gift"card and candle

As promised this week I will be featuring halloween goodies. Since I have 3 little ones in school I have plenty to make!LOL! This is what I made for the teachers. I found these cute black candles at Michaels on mine and Mamas shopping trip. Its called witches brew and smells like black licorice. I will not eat the stuff but I love how it smells!! I made a band for the candle with green galore and tangerine tango. I added the sentiment "Happy Hauntings" around the band above the yummy ribbon I also found at Michaels. I colored the picture image from H & M's fright night w/copic markers and added the bat punch covered in crystal stickles. For the "gift" card I found on Kirstens blog! So cute! I stamped the bookcase image and colored w/copics. I also added the bats and sentiment "snakes, snails and bats" b/c the inside reads...special ingredients mixed with a little bit of boo! Now for the gift card which I have to explain b/c I forgot to take a pic and its already getting dark here! If you click on the link above it will take you to Kirsten blog and she has a pic of the inside of hers....anyway I found these sour gummy bats at the dollar store and they are orange and black so I put some in a baggie and attached to the inside of the card and theres still a place for you to write a special note! I will post a pic of the inside in the am. So I have 6 of these to give to teachers! I have one made so far!LOL! Guess I better get busy!LOL! J/K! They are super easy! Have a great day! I'll be back tommorrow to show you what Im making for the kids to give out in their class....and dont forget Wed is the blog hop!!
