VLVS! All Hallow's Eve Party Blog Hop~Candy Wrappers

Welcome to Day Three of the Viva Las Vegastamps! All Hallow's Eve Party Blog Hop.   

As promised I am sharing ideas for your Halloween Party... all the ideas could be used for young and old alike! Today wrappers for those candy bars that need a little sprucing up Viva Las Vegastamps! style!!!! All stamps are from Viva Las Vegastamps! and stamped with VersaFine Black Ink. 

Here are 4 wrapped samples, 1.45oz Hershey's Chocolate bars.    
Paper size depends on the the size of your candybar, measure by wrapping your paper around the bar.  Cut to length with a little over lap.  I have layered my wrap. The green card-stock a bit wider than the orange card-stock (with the pattern).

Then with a punch add a decorative edge to the green card-stock and ink the opposite edge. Add the crepe paper: Lay VLVS! Miracle Tape on the edge of the green card-stock remove the second piece of protective paper and pleat the the crepe paper on it. It doesn't need to be perfect. It took a little practice, after a couple of times it goes quickly.
Crease the orange pattern paper a bit to give a general idea of the center front to position stamping.  Once stamping is completed wrap the bar and adhere with VLVS! Miracle Tape.
R.I.P.

Witch Costume
Stamps: before adding the crepe paper to the top of the green card-stock stamp the Spiked Fence, Witch Costume and Trick or Treat.
Cemetery
Stamps: Cemetery, Full Moon and Raven.

Poison
Stamps: Pasteurs Death Potion, Poison (stamped on green card-stock adhere with VLVS! Miracle Tape!) and Skull and Cross Bones.

This is a great project to get the help of the young goblins the house!
