LOVE at first bite!

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Hello Everyone!
So, are you ready for Halloween?? 
I have a yummy little treat once again to share with you :)
 I had watched Arya the other day and this was a little project her and I did together....well, sort of, lol! She made quite the mess but had a blast doing it and kept wanting to eat the little candies sprinkles...too funny! Arya's daycare facility has a lot of helpers that come to her preschool class each day. So, she will be taking these yummy treats to her daycare Teacher on Friday for her to pass out to all the helpers that come in that day to help:)

Okay, onto the info:
I started with a recycled taller soup can and wrapped it in some fun pattern paper from my stash. I decorated the can by wrapping some Trendy Twines black licorice around it. I found the sweet little ghost at the Silhouette Store and sized them at 2.61 x 1.71. I used the Print and Cut feature (love) on my Cameo since I was in a bit of a hurry to make these, plus I had a helper....a small helper so, easy is what I was lookin' for, lol!
The label is cut at 2" from the Elegant Edges cartridge.  I stamped the sentiment on the label and onto the ghost's with My Craft Spot's Batty For You stamp set.
I filled the can with yummy pretzels that I dipped in Wilton candy melts and sprinkle with sugar candies. I then slipped them into a pretzel bag and tied these adorable ghosts onto them with again black licorice Trendy Twine. They were super fun to make and with the Print and Cut feature, they were done in no time at all! 
 I hope they like them:)

  4. I absolutely love these, Sherrie!! The recycled soup can looks amazing!! Those ghosts could not be cuter!! I love their rosy cheeks!! What fabulous treats these are - they will be so appreciated!! I bet Arya is the most popular kid in her preschool ;)

    I am trying to get caught up on blogging but it's so hard. I know you know what I mean, but it's so hard when you are gone for a few days to just try to catch up. It's a bit overwhelming. I had a great time with my family...I haven't seen my cousins in years and we had so much fun. But I am seriously worn out. I could sleep through the weekend and maybe feel better!! I hope you are doing well my dear friend!! You have been busier than me so I hope you have been able to rest and relax and take time for yourself. Have a great evening!! Big hugs :)
