She's {kinda} Crafty Guest Post!

Hi Preppy & Pink readers! My name is Stacy and I am visiting today from She's{kinda}Crafty, a little blog where I try to simplify crafts and DIYs so that everyone can do them. Luckily, Preppy & Pink Stacy is only a little way up the interstate, so I didn't have to travel very far ;)

I want to share with you a very simple and fun Halloween craft/favor. You only need a little time, a couple of supplies, and a printer to complete this project.

small mason jars or other containers
caramel or candy corn
Pumpkin Teeth Labels (download for FREE here)
glue dots or double sided adhesive
paint - optional

1) Print out the Pumpkin Teeth printable on either white cardstock or 8.5X11" sticker paper which you can pick up in the office supply section of Walmart (10 sheets for $4.44).
2) Use a paper trimmer, scissors, or punch and cut the labels out to the size or shape you want.
3) Measure you jar with your ribbon and cut a length of ribbon that fits around your jar at the spot you want to apply your label.
4) Wrap ribbon around jar and glue into place with either a glue dot, double sided adhesive tape or by using the label to hold it in place if you've printed it out on sticker paper.
5) Glue the label in place on top of the ribbon if you've printed it out on card stock.
6) Optional - paint the lid of you jar. I used Martha Stewart's new glitter paint to give it a little extra sparkle. I always recommend a primer when you are painting on metal but it's not a must if you don't have the time or patience for it.

That's it! So simple, right? These would be great as party favors or for schoolmates, neighbors, the mail man...the list goes on and on!
As a special treat I have also designed a 2nd label for you to use instead of or with you Pumpkin Teeth - Vampire Fangs can be seen and downloaded here!

I hope you enjoyed my little Halloween craft and thanks for having me on Pink & Preppy today!

Happy Crafting,

I recently had the opportunity to make some goodies for a baby
shower for {soon to be}, baby Jake & his sweet mommy, Angela. 
Her co-workers wanted to do something a little special for her
before her "BIG" day arrives.
