The Witches Broom is on the Loose!!

Hello Friends,
Woo Hoo it's Friday all day!!!! OMG! have you seen these brooms flying everywhere??  Well I've seen them land on many different blogs and just had to try one!!  Aren't these the cutest?? I just had to give these brooms a whirl:)

I finally got my Stampin' Up! order with some 1x8 cello bags which are only $2.50 for 50 bags from Stampin' Up! which you can get HERE fantastic deal!!

These treats are super easy and fast to make with licorice, pencils and even licorice erasers like the one I used.  Perfect to pass out to a class of kids or simply to your kids in your neighborhood!!


I used a 2-3/4 X 8" strip of designer paper and cut about 1/8" all the way across the 8"width with some paper snips.  I used the {Wicked Cool stamp set item#120600} to stamp the witches boots and colored the stockings in Pumpkin Pie and Gumball Green markers.  I died the whisper white twine with some black ink and wrapped it around one broom and used SU hemp for the other broom.
One of the 1x8 Stampin' Up! cello bags contains a black licorice and the other one has a black and white licorice eraser that I got at Barnes & Nobles.  I used the word punch to punch the sentiment from {Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set item#115370} which you can get HERE! You guys this is the PERFECT stamp set for your collection, it has every occasion sentiment LOVE it!
