I'm not a Halloween person, but this Mummy is just too cute.
I had only planned to post this fun little box that my friend Cami designed (go here for tutorial and inspiration Ü) that I had made, but the mummies kept growing and then one idea after another came to mind. For the candies above I used some chocolate crispy circle candies that come in a bag for $1.
I loved the Pixie Sticks project I had made earlier (inspired by Heather) and decided to make a more "mature" pocket for an adult. The other one I made was more "kid-ish". The polka dot background paper is My Mind's Eye. I stamped the stars with LAD's In The Background. The orange polka dot scallop is from LAD's new digi pack "Spooktacular". This is very easy to make: Cut a strip of cardstock 3" x 11 and then fold where you need to for the candy to fit. Use Tombow's Mono Multi adhesive for the sides and decorate. (I tried mono-adhesive on my last one and it popped apart, so be sure to use the tacky tape unless you are going to sew it shut)

This is my favorite-ist of them all. I cut a thick piece of chipboard 3.5 x 7. I then cut the black, cream (Basic Grey) and dots (My Mind's Eye) to fit the chipboard and sewed around the edges. The "b" is chipboard, but I don't know the company. It's one I got at my LSS.
I cut 3 scallops with kraft cardstock for each "o" and taped together so that they were the same thickness as my "b"


  1. that boo sign is adorable Debbie! You nailed that one! :)

  2. super cute stuff today!! i love the paper you used...perfect for a little spooky mummy!

  3. I'm not a halloween person either, but I concur - he is cute. Love the pixie stix. I might steal that idea for a different time. That would be a cute door hanger to surprise a certain little boy for no good reason.
