"scarily" easy Hallowe'en party favour.

I was so excited when I found out that Jo had designed a Hallowe'en stamp (with the apostrophe) for Stampotique.
I've had a bit of a thing about how the apostrophe seemed to suddenly disappear in the UK, and it seemed such a shame. Yes, I know that English is an ever evolving language and I don't expect people to go around writing 'bus or 'phone, but come on.... Hallowe'en.. doesn't it just look cooler with the apostrophe? Somehow spookier and more ancient? which after all is what Hallowe'en is all about.
So come celebrate All Hallows' eve with me - grab a party favour.... and let's get spooky..

These were so easy to make just a cone of black paper. A strip of orange stamped with another of Jo's stamps, abstract Foliage. The spider is Mr stripes, also from stampotique. I punched some holes, hung with black raffia, and added sweets topped with scrunched black tissue paper.
Jo's stamps and other selected Stampotique Stamps are available from Happy Daze in the UK

  3. Whahooooo Hallowe'en indeed!! Fantastic. LOVE the use of the abstract foliage stamp (and the fact that I didnt even recognise it until I read you'd used it!! Brilliant!)

  4. Am with you on the apostrophe hun... I think it's a much needed piece of our language :O))

  5. I didn't know that Halloween had a ' in it, so not only did i get to see your lovely party favours, I also learn't something new. Should learn't have a ' in it?
