Today's Guest: Dandelions and Dust Bunnies

Hi, I'm Kathy from Dandelions and Dust Bunnies. During the summer months, my yard is speckled with those pesky dandelions and my house has a few dust bunnies lurking about here and there. So that's how I came up with my blog - in hopes of weeding out the bad and replacing it was fun crafts, recipes, thrift store find remakes and home decor projects that are a little more pleasing to the eye.

Today I want to share with you these super easy treat containers.  My son loves to bring Halloween treats for his school class.


So this year we decided to make some cute containers with scrapbook paper.  I started out with these supplies:  scrapbook paper, paper crimper, glue stick or double sided tape, ribbon, square punch, 1/8 round punch, stamp and some ink.


I cut the paper into 4 even pieces out of a sheet of 8.5 x 11.  Roll them into tubes and secure with tape or glue like this.


Secure one end with tape or glue and crease.


Use a crimper for a little added dimension.


Fold the other end the opposite way and punch two holes at the top for your ribbon.


Make a simple tag.


Fill with candy and then close with the ribbon and attach your tag.


Then just make a bunch of them because they're so cute and easy.


Happy treat making! Thanks so much Karen for letting me guest post today. Feel free to stop by for a visit. Dandelions and Dust Bunnies
