Different but All the Same..............PPA13.....

Halloween is quite the event in our neighborhood. We often have over 100 trick or treaters! I try to make a few special treats for our closest neighbors. These little pockets will hold a treat or two and some Halloween stickers. They are a snap to make and happen to qualify for Pals Paper Arts Challenge 13 - Anything but a Card. I used a friendly mix of last year's and this year's Halloween designer paper. I cut out 2 top notes for each pocket, folded down a flap and tied a ribbon. Then I got busy with the Spooky Treats rub-on set. They are all different but really all the same. I made two more for my grown-up kids. (No stickers for them - they prefer lottery tickets!) Next I think I will make some for my co-workers at the library - they like treats too. Seems that saying applies to people as well - we are different but really all the same.................

This is fabulous. I haven't seen a pocket made with the top note dies. Did you use Sticky Strip to hold them together? Hugs, M
