This time I’ll start my post off by what I served for FOOD for my Girl’s Day/Night Out this month, then onto the projects.
The cupcakes are just chocolate cake mix with Betty Crocker chocolate frosting. Then I made the webs by downloading a spider web picture, putting that piece of paper UNDER wax paper, and then tracing the design with melted white chocolate chips. (I used a frosting dispenser.) I then put some plastic spiders ontop of the web. Then I put them in the refrigerator to harden the webs, Take them out, peel them off the wax paper and set them ontop of the cupcakes! I forgot to tell the gals the spiders were PLASTIC, but they SOON FOUND OUT!!! LOL
The template for the spider web can be found HERE.
I made these little witches hats out of Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. The tutorial can be found HERE. However, I didn’t mess with sticky strip and just used good ol’ fashioned hot glue to assemble it. Each gal got one of these at their work station. Here are my Girl’s Day/Night Out projects for the month of September.
There are LOTS of versions of these out there on SCS! Here is Frankie!
I saw this little “treat box” on the infamous Becky Robert’s blog (which can be found HERE.) You can find instructions and the tutorial for this on her blog.
I love this new stamp set from the mini catalog, called Pumpkin Patch! So fun to work with! I was inspired by this card HERE on SCS.
