Spooky Treats

Hi There,

Glad to be back again this week. Did you see all those "tag" ideas from last week over at Creative Critterz Imagination? You're going to want to drop in for a visit all this week too. . . Goodie Bags is our theme.
I went with the test tube holder. Directions can be found here. These small test tubes purchased at a Children's Learning Store and I also bought larger ones at Michaels in the Martha Stewart section. For the larger test tube containers my cardstock was cut 4 1/2" x 12".

I printed my own batty paper on my Imagine for just one of the containers, the rest is purchased pattern paper. Can you identify the cartridges? The polka dot orange is from Bubblegum Stripes. I wanted to make the paper more Halloween so used Cricut Craft Room to place bats from Happy Hauntings onto the pattern paper.
CCR I believe is now open to everyone to try. All the bugs have not been entirely worked through yet but if you want to give it a try and are patient it can do some pretty neat stuff. I've posted a video at the end explaining how to create your paper.
Scalloped circle from Easter 2010 and I used a circle punch for the others.
This is what the piece of cardstock looked liked after I was done printing.
Still trying to get the hang of doing videos.
For more test tube ideas please visit me over at Ink-spirations.
Have a great Monday!
