Treat Basket For Your Little Ghouls & Goblins

This is a cute little project that you guys can make for your kids; or give as gifts to adults. I was trying to use up the Halloween designer series paper that I acquired over the summer. I will be making a lot of these cute little baskets to give to my daughter’s friends at school, and some of her teachers.

The materials I used are:

Card Stock – cut a 6 x 6
Designer Series Paper – you need 6 pieces measuring 1 7/8 x 1 7/8

Basket handle (Wisteria Wonder card stock) – 1 piece cut at 3/4 inch X 8 inches
Decorative paper (spiderweb) basic black card stock cut at – 1 inch. by 8 inches

You should put Hershey’s kisses or Chocolate covered raisins to make it look like “witch poop”. The sentiment reads:

THEIR BROOMS FLY SO FAST
THEY DIP AND THEY SWOOP
BUT IF THEY GET SCARED
THEY LEAVE YOU WITCH POOP!

HAPPY CRAFTING!
