Envelope Punch Board Halloween Treat Holder
After my travels last week I found my healing in walking with nature. This past weekend was gorgeous here in Denver - the leaves turning every shade of yellow, red and orange. I am once again in awe of nature - her ability to make death so stunning. All of these leaves reaching the end of their lives and doing so brilliantly! Leaving us (pun intended) with a dazzling reminder of the cyclical nature of life. I hope to make such a glorious exit one day - to go out with colors blazing - having lived a full life of joy, appreciation and love. Nature, you dazzle me!
I am in love with my envelope punch board! How fun to be able to make "pocket" treat holders in so many different sizes! I created this one from a 7 7/8" x 7 7/8" piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock. It fits a regular-sized candy bar perfectly! The mummy is on a belly band that slides up and down the treat holder. I used the Top Note Bigz die along with the Halloween Hello stamp set and a few punches. I foresee making a whole lot of these "pockets" to contain treats of different types :) Can't wait to figure out what I can do next with the envelope punch board!!!!!
