The Itsy Bitsy SPIDER....

This Itsy Bitsy Spider has a treat inside of it.  A bag of Halloween jelly beans.  To create this I found a couple of ideas on the Stampin' Connections (an exclusive website for SU demonstrators) and decided to combine the two.  I used the very talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Jackie Topa's Punch Art Spider idea found here and Michelle Pollard, another fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, had the cutest treat shaker bat project using two Tag Die glued together with a ribbon at the top.  I have emailed her to see if she has her shaker bat treat project on a blog.  If she does I will point you her way to see it.  It is so cute.  With these 2 ideas (punch art spider & shaker treat using 2 tag dies) I thought I would be so clever as to combine them and create my own shaker spider treat project using a Sweet Treat Cup with Fine Galaxy Black Glitter & Micro Beads inside it.  Here is what I came up with.  I was so excited while creating it and when I was finished realized that it took a lot more work then I thought.  hehehe I need a cute little stamping gift as a thank you to give my stamping friends that are coming this Sunday to make Christmas & Halloween cards and I thought a little treat shaker project would be such a good idea.  I may make some more just like this one or change it up a bit and instead of using a Sweet Treat Cup to put the Fine Galaxy black glitter & Micro beads inside I might use Michelle Pollard's idea and make a normal shaker card.  That way may be a bit easier and quicker to make a bunch.  Or I may spice it up totally and make a bunch of different Halloween themed ones like a Mummy, Frankenstien, a black kitty, etc.  Stay tuned to see what I come up with.
