Fall is such a fun time of year, the leaves turning colors, the crisp cool air, and little monsters creeping out to play. Yes, Halloween is on the way! have some spooky fun by leaving a little surprise on a neighbor or friends doorstep, the trick is to not let them see you! Leave a treat and the poem below with the picture and watch how fast the boo travels!
I used this candy tin that I saved to make a extra fun surprise. ***TIP*** take a double look at that tin, box, bottle, or container before you throw it away. You never know what might end up being the perfect shape and size for your next project!
Thanks to the great inspiration over at splitcoast stampers for this spooky Frankenstein idea, and Angie at http://www.chicnscratch.typepad.com/chic_n_scratch/page/2/ I really enjoyed looking at all her cute monster creations!
Just cover your tin with green cardstock. Add a strip of hand cut hair, punch some eyes using a 1 3/8” & 1” circles. Pop a nose up using a 1” circle punch and lastly hand draw some cute stitches and mouth. Fill with candy!
This cute monster can easily be adapted to many types of bags, buckets, and baskets. he would be super cute made just out of a small green paper gift bag.
Now add these instructions and print out this cute sign and have a great time giving out some boo’s!
It all started with a little BOO
A knock upon the door and off they flew!
Halloween is almost here, the leaves are flying by
The pumpkins are ripe, there’s a moon in the sky!
We came by the light of the moon
to bring you this fun surprise.
Put your BOO sign in your window,
and pass on the fun! You have been BOO'd!
Please keep it going by following these directions:1. Enjoy your treat.2. Place the BOO sign on your front door or visible in a window.3. Within 2 days, make 2 copies of this note, make 2 treats & 2 BOO signs.4. Secretly deliver to 2 neighbors/friends without a BOO sign.5.
