MCT Halloween Hustle Day 5

Welcome to our last day of "Halloween Hustle"! I hope you have gotten lots of inspiration from Emma and the My Creative Time design team this week! Don't forget we have daily giveaways. Check Emma's blog to see what today's will be!  Also, if you missed out on our sale last week! Well....for this weekend ONLY, starting now and continuing  thru Sunday 10/27/2013 @ 11:59pm PST you can use the code OCT2013 to get 20% off your entire order in Emma's store HERE!  Remember she told you about making a "Teeny Tag Holiday" stamp set? WELL....wait no longer, it will is available TODAY  in her store HERE!

For my project today, I put together a treat bucket for my sweet little neighbor Julien, who is just 17 months old.  His parents used to do something like this for my son Eric when he was little, so I'm excited to continue the tradition!

I found the fun felt bucket at Target.  It came with the bat on it, but the top looked a little plain to me. The My Creative Time Stitched Party Dies were the perfect solution!  I used the banner die and cut a bunch of black felt banners, with the bows in turquoise.  A little hot glue adhered them to the bucket, and it was a quick and easy makeover!

Since Julien is a little young to eat candy, I picked up a box of animal crackers and dressed it up with some fun K&Company Halloween paper from my stash.  I added an adorable little bow made with the  MCT Small Stitched Scalloped Bow Die.  The circle sentiment and little pumpkin were made with the  All Around Holidays stamp set, and they work perfectly with the Scallop & Stitched Circle Dies.

I found this funny little guy at Target too.  He needed a tag, so I pulled out my Stitched Round Tab, Arrow & Tag Dies and added a fun sentiment from Fright Night.  Hopefully little Julien will like his treats!

  22. The felt bucket was a super find and the felt banner looks beautiful. Animal crackers are a perfect idea and you decorated that in such a pretty little manly way! The skeleton sock monkey is too cute and funny. You had a successful trip to Target I would say...and you did an awesome job decorating everything up.
