Transform a Halloween Trick Into a Real Treat With Ribbon!

It is Saturday so it is my turn to post a project! :)
I was so excited when I opened up my latest package from Really Reasonable Ribbon and saw the adorable "Halloween" ribbon of the month collection!
Bonnie has such a knack for putting just the right ribbons together for her sets.

I know you all have "special" ghosts and goblins that come to visit on Halloween. Maybe a special teacher or friend you would like to treat. is a quick and easy way to make a nice sweet gift.
Wal-Mart (and most other stores) have their Halloween candy out already which is great for us crafters. I picked up some little plastic jars filled with different kinds of candy for just $3.00 each! They are a tad ugly but I knew how to make them "gift worthy"!

I made tags, stamped them with some Penny Black stamps, and decorated them with assorted pieces of the September Ribbon of the Month collection. They took me just a few minutes to do and will make some little pumpkins squeal with delight!

You could also use Halloween stickers to decorate your tags instead of stamping. There are some really cute ones in the craft stores now!

Halloween is still a ways off so you have tons of time to do this too.
Head on over to Really Reasonable Ribbon and sign up for their ribbon of the month club.
You can also buy the individual ribbons if you would prefer.
Now through 9/12, Bonnie is giving 10% off by using the promotional code VACASALE in the promotional code area on the first page of checkout.
Don't forget, we are doing a DESIGN TEAM CALL, so if you love playing with pretty ribbons, check out the details HERE.

Thanks so much for dropping by!

If I say "Trick Or Treat" will you leave us a comment?
