"Pumpkin Poo"


These didn't turn out exactly how I wanted them to but they work. My neighbor borrowed my markers the other day so I used my kids Crayola markers. Worked out pretty good eh? I like making these. They are easy, cheap, and people think they are cool. I am going to put these in the Frankenstein boxes for the teachers along with some spider sammiches and what ever else I can come up with. Now I just need to get the treats done for the kids classes and I am done with Halloween. Then I can move on to Christmas. Yes, I skip Thanksgiving. I don't know why. Ok, I do know why. Living in Cali with the rest of our family in MN it is just us for the holidays. If I was back home then maybe I would do something special for Thanksgiving, but for now, I just skip it.

Cut orange cardstock 3 x 5. Score 2 7/8 from each side on the 5 inch side. Use corner rounder on all four corners. Cut black piece of cardstock 2 ¾ x 1 7/8 and round two corners. Cut 17 inches of ribbon. Place it where you want it and adhere the black piece to the orange piece. Having the ribbon between the two pieces of cardstock. Punch a 1 inch hole towards Bottom so that the tic tacs show through. Decorate front. Fold like a book and place a glue line or glue dot on side of tic tac container and adhere to the spine of the book and you’re done.
