Here's another Silhouette project for ya'll. I am always curious the sizes some of the boxes/envelopes/3-D cuts make. Thought I'd try one out. This little Halloween treat bag is cut at the maximum for my machine. Holds a couple cavities worth of candy, which is impressive. Are you anything like me on Halloween night with the rationing of two to three pieces of candy per trick-or-treater at the beginning, yet shoveling huge handfuls into their bags by the end? This is definitely an end-of-the-night hand out. :)
I wanted to make the spider web stand out more. See on the original cut that it is part of the bag?
Ungroup your bag, copy/paste just the spider web part, and then create a circle around it. Will cut the black part of my little treat bag. Like I've said in the past, ultimate versatility. Check out the Silhouette blog today for a download giveaway.
Other supplies: Hero Arts stamps and Cuttlebug tag.
Onto the cookies! In my perfect Mom world, I would like to have a cookie recipe a week that I make for the kid(s). Lots of seasonal stuff. Each week would be different, so 52 different awesome cookie recipes. Like I said...perfect Mom world. I may be overreaching a bit. Those weeks that Oprah is good, the kids might have to just deal with a bag of Oreos from time to time.
Seems like I have a recipe for October if I ever intend to go through with the crazy plan. Ghost meringues (see photo above) from the cookbook I bought a few weeks ago. I was planning on giving them out to neighbors, but decided they are too good to share. Chocolate eyeballs and cotton candy tasting meringue are a delicious taste sensation. Besides, Hank is crazy about them. Must be the whoooooo, whooooo, whooooo sounds I make as I fly a ghost cookie through the air to him:). Mixing and measuring isn't a time drain, but they do take two hours to cook. Totally worth the effort when they turn out this cute.
I wasn't going to type up the recipe because it was copyrighted, but I found somebody who already did it for me:). How about I just link over and let her take the heat if there is any? Enjoy and go get some baking done!:)
