Haunted Halloween Tags & Advent!

Do you have the Halloween bug yet?  I sure do!  Which means I've been a busy girl on Scrapbook Max making all kinds of cute creations.  In fact, I've been having so much fun making printables, that I decided to open an Etsy Shop!  No worries, though.  I'll still be offering tons of free printables along the way... like the gift tags above!


But... what fun is a cute tag without a treat to go with it?  This week at Target, I found Candy Corn Kisses and knew immediately what I wanted to do with them.  So, when you run grab some for yourself, be sure to pick up square pretzels and M&M's too!


Making them is simple.  Just line a cookie sheet with wax paper and line up your pretzels in rows.  Unwrap your Kisses and put one on top.  Heat your oven to 175 and WARM the kisses on the pretzels for about 5 minutes.  You only want to soften the chocolate, not melt it... so watch them closely or you'll end up with a big gooey mess!  When you pull them out of the oven, they should still be in "kiss" form - but when you  carefully drop an M&M on top and they'll flatten out like the picture above.  Chill in the fridge to re-set; then share them with your little ghouls and goblins!

So... you want my free printable, right?  Ah... but wait.
I'm going to make you work for it this time!

 I am opening my Etsy Shop today...
{YAY... applause, applause...}

With this *MEGA CUTE* 13 Day Countdown to Halloween!
This printable file can be easily framed, mod podged to an 8x10 tile or laminated to display.  Plus, the kids will go nuts if you load it with Candy Corn Kisses!  I think it would also make a fun and easy gift or favor for a friend (and your sister).  The great thing about purchasing a digital file is you buy it once, but print is as much as you want! 

Plus, to all my new Etsy Customers... I'll also email you my Friday Freebie file for the week!

Come on... you know you want both of them!

your stuff is just too cute!! do you print all these things off on a home computer? or do you use that online site that mails you "professional" copies?

Colette said...

I mainly create files that can be printed at home... the examples shown in this post were printed with my regular printer! Easy and cheap!
