Witching you a Happy Halloween classroom gift

For a girl who doesn't celebrate much in the way of Halloween, I do find ways to celebrate it in whimsical and fun versions.  I have four children in school this year and creating a gift for their classmates is a fun way to share in how we care!  This treat is perfect in 'Witching You a Happy Halloween'.  Create a witches broom from our cardstock, Fringe Scissors and Sticky Strip adhesive and delight the kids who receive it.  Not all families find time to celebrate the fun moments in life - I love, even as my son is getting 'too old' for such fun - it delights him to give the gifts and blesses their classmates (whom they've grown up with all their lives).
Create this Halloween 'Witches Broom' Pencils for a Classroom Gift with:
Holiday Home stamp set (Photopolymer 135095)
Whisper White card stock (100730)
Basic Black card stock (121045)
Tangerine Tango ink pad (126946)
Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad (132708)
Basic Black Baker's Twine (134576)
Fringe Scissors (133325)
1/4" Circle Handheld Punch (134364)

Creating this cute tag is super easy!  Using Word I create a document that had three columns and narrow margins.  I printed this simple sentiment over and over - for each of my kids - and printed them!  I love that our Whisper White card stock prints so great!
 
Stamping this adorable little jack-o-latern is easy using the Holiday Home stamp set!  I love how easy it is to use and the image is so clear!
Trimming the Basic Black card stock into 2-1/4" strips and cut the edges with the Fringe Scissors.  Leave a boarder to adhere to the pencils.  Apply with the Sticky Strip to the bordered edge.  Cut this fringed paper into 2-3/4" sections.  Roll along the edge so that it over laps.  Fluff the edges of the fringe for a broom like look.
Add a tag!  Using the 'Witching You a Happy Halloween' tags punch a 1/4" Circle whole using the Handheld punch. Add to the pencil for a cute sentiment.  I then used the Basic Black Baker's Twine to tie on a baggie (our Cellophane Bags) to tie on some cute Halloween themed erasers and a lollipop - what a sweet way to tie on the holiday!

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
