(This stair-step card was inspired by Beth Rank's design.  I made just a couple of minor changes.)

I just love Halloween!!!  I'm the house with the bubble & fog machines at the front door and the "Welcome" mat that makes scary noises when you step on it.  All the neighborhood kids know that as far as I'm concerned there is no such a thing as being "too old" to trick-or-treat.  I don't even understand why the community has an age limit for trick-or-treaters.  If you are 13, 18, or even 35 years old, and you still think its fun to dress up and go out on Halloween, then its okay with me.  I also HATE when communities schedule trick-or-treating for the weekend before Halloween.  Sorry, but Halloween should be held on Halloween!!!

I've been having a lot of fun making treats with the freakin' cute supplies from Stampin' Up!  I think the kids are going to love them.  I have a variety of treats to hand out.  The better the costume, the better the candy!!!  For the most adorable kids & the most creative costumes, I have this great "Dizzy Pop".  The best part of this sucker is that it spins!!! 

I've seen these suckers at some stores for as much as $3.99 but I found them at the Dollar Tree for just $1.  I added a 2.3/8" scallop circle punched out of Wisteria Wonder card stock, stamped the cute little spider from the Googly Ghouls stamp set on a round label from the Ghoulish Googlies Designer Kit and adhered it with Stampin' Dimensionals foam dots.  I stamped BOOOO on Pumpkin Pie card stock and adhered it with foam dots.  The goggly eyes make it so cute I could scream!  

 The Petite Pocket Die makes a perfect pouch for Pixie Sticks or other stick candy.
I used Basic Black card stock to make the pocket & embossed it with the Spider Web embossing folder then wrapped it with Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Series Paper.

It's so quick & easy to wrap a piece of Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Series Paper around a box of Sugar Daddies then add the adorable mummy for a fun treat.

I love the Ghoulish Googlies Designer Kit & the Googly Ghouls stamp set for decorating treats!!!  The labels from the kit make the candy easy to decorate & the Googlies eyes add a really fun element.  

See the "Yummy Gummies Skeleton Treat Box" for my all-time favorite Halloween treat holder!

I hope you've been inspired to make special Halloween treats for all of your favorite ghoul-friends!
