Mind Your Mummy!!

What do you get when you take a turkey stuffing bag, a King Size Hershey bar, and 2 wiggly eyes?


You create a mummy treat of course!

Yep, I bet that's exactly what you were thinking- LOL!
And in my case, I combined these oddly paired items 8 times for 8 special nieces and nephews! 

I looked high and low for some sort of "mummy wrap," and a co-worker of mine suggested cheesecloth. Luckily she mentioned it being used for covering turkeys because I was able to snag these turkey bags at my local dollar store - SCORE!! I just cut them apart (2 king sized bars per turkey bag) and wrapped them up. And I didn't use my Cricut - GASP!

 This Scrappy Moms sentiment is what started the
whole idea for me. I was totally set on using it!

And here is the sentiment on the back of the tag- perfect!
  • Stuffing Bags for turkey from my local dollar store
  • Hershey King sized chocolate bars
  • Wiggly Eyes
  • Glue Dots for securing wrap to bar and wiggly eyes to wrap
  • "Mind Your Mummy" sentiment from Scrappy Moms' "A Haunting We Will Go" stamp set
  • "Hope Your Halloween is a real TREAT!" sentiment from Scrappy Moms' "A Haunting We Will Go" stamp set
  • White Georgia-Pacific cardstock for tags
  • Stampin Up Basic Black ink for stamping sentiments
  • Stampin Up Creamy Caramel ink to sponge edges of tag
  • Fiskars deckle edge scissors to hand cut tags (guess I could have stuck a Cricut cut in here, huh?)
  • Orange and black baker's twine purchased on Etsy
I am entering this in Getting Cricky with K. Andrew's Simple Sunday Challenge - Halloween Treat Holders and My Pink Stamper's Make a goodie bag or 3D item challenge.

Welcome to the weekend all - YES! Enjoy!
