Crafty McBoo

So this is about the easiest Halloween craft ever made. I know I saw these in Martha and various other places so I'm not sure who gets the credit but they are easy and quick and oh so cute.

Halloween "crackers." These don't actually crack but you can go here and order supplies to make the real thing. So mine are filled with miniature candy bars which are in abundance at this time of year. Most of them are toilet paper rolls but I did resort to cutting up a wrapping paper roll when I couldn't justify unrolling brand new TP. ;)

The tissue they are wrapped in is from the Martha collection at Michael's. When I bought it a few weeks ago it was $5 for like 12 pieces. I just picked up a second box on sale for $3 to save for next year. It's the perfect size, no cutting needed! I just stuffed the tube, rolled it in the tissue, taped it shut and tied the ends with ribbon.

Then I printed out vintage images I purchased at the Vintage Workshop and attached them over the tissue seam. Voila! Cute, easy and seriously hard to give away. :) These would be great as party favors, too. I think I'll do them at Easter for our Sunday dinner. With bunnies and chicks, of course. :)

So now that I've got THAT out my system, what's next?

Christmas fabric projects! Bring out the pinking shears!

I wondered where you got that cute paper! I figured some fancy place in NYC--never guessed it would be Michael's! LOL I may have to see if I can tuck some away for next year. :)

PS--LOVED the innards. Yum!
