Loaded Halloween Pocket

Oh my goodness where did the months of July and August go?  Summer has been so busy for us that I have barely had time to craft.  I mean I was able to get some crafting done with the grandkids and some Tye Dyeing with my sister but papercrafting????  Well that ha taken a back seat.  I should also add that we have been revamping our summer cabin too so I have been decorating...kinda if you call replacing floors and carpet and painting walls decorating lol.

A while ago I was making loaded pockets and I absolutely love making these.  I have randomly passed out the small ones to either a very kind waitress, or the mail lady etc.  I have been facebook friends with one woman who just happens to live up where my summer place is.  We have never really met in person but this last time I was up there she suggested we meet up in October and finally craft together.  I wanted to give her a small token and decided a Halloween themed loaded pocket would be super cute.  The main pocket is made with 1 12x12 sheet of Graphic 45 Halloween in Wonderland.  I think this line was discontinued but I'm not sure.  Anyway here's the pocket empty.
Isn't that a cute little piece of candy corn?  Easy peasy to make it too.  Just get your 3 colors cut 3 circles One that is 2" diameter, a 2 3/4 diameter and a 3 1/4 diameter.  Stack them together and glue .  Then cut the stacked circle in half and continue cutting the halves like pie pieces.  You should be able to get 8 pieces.  So so cute.  Anyway............I then made a bunch of tags, a few pokes, some little embellies and then bagged a few die cuts and ribbons.
I'm hoping she's going to really like these.  I am so proud of myself...I used only scraps!  Yep didn't have to buy a thing.  The only full sheet of paper I used was to construct the main pocket.  To be honest I didn't even know that I had so much Halloween stuff. Ok time to stuff the pockets......................................

TA DA!!!!!!
 I think I'm going to make a few more of those mini pockets with the other Halloween paper I have and stuff it with packets of apple cider.  So stay tune those may be coming up soon.

Til next time.................................
