"Spider Sammiches"


How cute are these little buggers? I know right. I totally cased these from nilakias on SCS. When I saw these I just knew I had to make these for the office staff at school. I hadn't figured out what to make them yet and this is perfect. I love how people think of the cutest things to make with the punches. No stamping involved for these little guys. I can't use the punches with my hand but now I am the master of the floor punch. Ha ha ha.
My doctor's appointment Tuesday went very well. The incision is completly closed now so that is good. The doctor wants me to keep trying to bend it but it is still swollen and doesn't really bend much. I was concerned about the swelling so I asked the doc and he said that it will be swollen for at least 6 more weeks. I was shocked. 6 more weeks?? I guess why that is why they said that it would be at least 4 months before I get full mobility back in my hand.

I saw these on SCS too and fell in love with them. I also was wondering what to make for some of my daughters teachers from the last fours years (she is a Senior) and these fit the bill easy and not pricey. TFS your version with us. Glad your finger is slowly getting better hang in there we are pulling for you.

These are so cute! I'm glad that your hand is getting better. You are very patient. It sounds like healing for this takes a long time!

Yep - very cute! I'm planning on making some for my office ladies and my husband...he's deathly scared of spiders, so I'm going to leave them all over the house for him since I'll be away on Halloween! I'm guessing he'll appreciate the candy more than the spiders AND they are not that scarry, so he should be ok! HA!

so glad to hear that your finger is getting better! It does take a long time for the swelling to go down. I had foot surgery this summer and it was 2 months before my foot looked normal again!

Very cute spiders. I gave one to each of my ladies that came to my Halloween class this past weekend. No we are getting together every night and making tons of them! They all wanted to make them for their classrooms and kids treats! And I'm the only one that has the punches!
