I have a few special Halloween treats to give and that is what inspired this post.  I started with a tube purchased at my LSS and SRM stickers.  Each tube will have a slightly different looking depending on what stickers are used.  The stickers are at the top below the cap and the bottom of the tube.   I then filled them with fall M&M's.  The tag is from  Inkssentials and was sprayed with water followed by Forest Moss, Rusty Hinge and Tea Dye Distress stains.  I then misted the tag again and blotted off the extra water.  When it had tried I stamped an image using "Skeleton Poem" by Stampendous using Ranger archival black ink.  Gold eyes using Kasier gems finished the skeleton.  It would not be spooky without adding a spider crawling down to the skeleton.  The spider was cut using a Memory Box die.  A orange and black ribbon hold the tag to the tube.  Hope you enjoy.


  1. A double delight....chocolate adorned with a ghoulishly inked tag!!

  2. I LOVE, LOVE this tag, Mary Jo -- eeeks, no Halloween but 1 decor piece this year for me -- I'm sooo lame!!! ;-( I even bought some of these tubes, but just not in time to get inspired to use them & the people I'd have given them to are dieting anyway -- SIGH!!! Happy Halloween to you!!!


Thank you for your comments. They are like hot cocoa in winter that makes you feel warm inside.
