A treat for the teachers... Cricut of Course :D



I wanted to make a little treat for the teachers at Lindsay's school, so of course I turned to my cricut and my favorite cartridge Paper Doll Dress Up. I hardly ever use that cart for the dolls, alhtough they are cute! It has so much stuff on it and I dont think I can sing it's praises enough!

I also used Tags, Bags, Boxes and More, I have had it awhile and it is a great cart for little bags and boxes but I dont use it much so I was happy to dust it off.

I cut everything in the bag on Real Dial Size, which like the witch's shoes for the shirt, is super important becuase if you dont use RDS you item will be something itty bitty!!

It is important to note that the owl, love that owl, is from Storybook, as is the font on the front! I honestly bought that darn cart for the owl, don't tell my husband that.

I used a lot of stickles and ink to give everything more depth.

After I cut out everything and gussied it up I attached them to wood skewers that I had painted black, then I poked them in a floral brick in the bag. Tucked in some tissue paper and loads of candy for the teachers.

I am going to pop it in the teacher's lounge and they can take a piece of candy if they dare!

Here are some close up pics!



I think this Jack-o-lantern is freakin' adorable!

I layered 2 witch's pots, one cut in purple and one in black. I stickled the purple for frothing bubble effect and added the cut little frog!




That mummy, he is hidden paper doll and he really should be front and center! You can also see my owl, oh how I love him!





Just another all over glance!



This skeleton is hidden in PDDU as well and I think he rocks, I tucked him in a Dracula coffin!

I hope the teacher's like it!!
I couldn't have done this without my trusty cricut, which Lindsay now wants to use, can't say that I am onboard for that :D

I think it's safe to say that you will be the talk of the school!

Michelle I absolutely love that treat basket. I might copy you and do something similiar at Christmas for the teachers at Lauren and Paige's school.
