Little Halloween bits and pieces!

Happy Saturday to you all! I hope you're enjoying your weekend. Mike and I are currently kidless! We just finished dropping off the girls at my parent's house for the night. We're planning on going out to dinner and couldn't be more excited! I love my girls but sometimes you just need a brake! Before I delve into my fun little project today, I just want to say that the recipe Stacy posted yesterday is delicious! We fixed them last weekend and they were a big hit here!

Now, on to my project. These little Halloween tags started out several weeks ago when I picked up three different $1 stamp sets at Joann's. The tiny images were too cute to pass up. That afternoon, I stamped two of the pumpkins and the Jack-O-Lantern. I practiced coloring the images in and cut one of them out. Just as I started to cut out the second pumpkin, Landry woke up from her nap, which = craft time OVER! Fast forward two weeks to when I made this Halloween garland. I got a bit overzealous with the 2" kraft colored scalloped squares and cut too many out. So, there they sat for days, in a pile, on my table. Fast forward one more week. I had no inspiration, no idea of what I wanted to do when I saw the half cut pumpkin on my table. I decided to finish trimming it out along with the Jack-O-Lantern. As I was trimming, the scalloped squares caught my eye. So, I played around, stamping, embossing, stitching and embellishing these cut little Halloween tags, using tiny bits and pieces of Halloween goodness!
Here's a close up of one of my two favorite tags. I heat embossed the cauldron and covered up the bubbles with little gems. Then added a bit of punched patterned paper, some twine and a True Black Vintage Button.

Finally, my favorite tag. I simply heat embossed the witch and added a bit of trim from my mom's trim bag and a small piece of black grosgrain ribbon.

There you have it! My little Halloween bits and pieces that just came together, by accident! Hope you all have a nice evening!
