Today's Guest: Heather from A Muse Studio

Hello! I'm Heather, Creative Director at A Muse Studio, and I'm thrilled to be sharing a super fun, super simple Halloween party favor with you today here at Eighteen25!

Every year I look forward to fall: chilly weather, gorgeous leaves, apple cider donuts, and Halloween! And every fall I make a lot of Halloween treats and party favors! I'm particularly fond of this one because it comes together really fast, with only a few basic papercrafting supplies!

Here's what you'll need:


cardstock (I used A Muse Studio Lime, Pebble, and Onyx Petite Polka Dot)
stamp (I love using our Web Background)
ink
die cut circles
(I used Nestabilities Classic Circles Large, but you could also use a circle cutter like the Circle Scissor Pro)
strong adhesive or glue gun
miniature peanut butter cup candies
optional - small bat die cuts (I used A Muse Studio Bat Trio Die Set)
optional – glitter for bats (I used A Muse Studio Diamond and Onyx glitters)


Here’s the how …

1. Die cut large circle and stamp. (You will get two “hat tops” from each large circle.)


2. Fold ends of one half circle until they overlap. Keep folding until there is only a small opening at the top and the base will fit a miniature peanut butter cup (it should be a little snug, but not tight and a bit of the candy wrapping showing).


3. Using strong adhesive or a glue gun, adhere folded edges together.

4. Adhere “hat top” to candy

5. Cut small circle and adhere “hat top” to small circle!


It really is THAT easy!

If you want to add an additional decoration to the hat (like the bats), something small works best. I also like to add glitter – everything’s better when it sparkles a little, right? *laugh*

Thanks so much to the girls at Eighteen25 for having me today – it’s been so much fun! I hope you'll stop by the A Muse Studio Blog and check out some of the other fun Halloween projects and party ideas we’re sharing this month!
