Freebie Friday Jack-o-lantern!

Happy Friday, blog friends! How are you? I know it's been a few days since I last posted - this week has been pretty busy for me! I'll share more later, but for now, let's talk about this week's Freebie! How do you like my little pumpkin? He's completely made out of punches and dies. The "body core" is made out of the Fancy Favor box and his "body exterior" is made out of the Clear Circle Big Shot die (3 circles for the front and 3 for the back). His face is from the photo corners punch and his stem is from the designer label punch. Isn't he a cutie? Here's a look at him from the side view: I used the jumbo eyelets to reinforce the handle. This is a great Halloween project and lots of fun to make, too!

Now are you guys ready to play? All you need to do to play for this week's Halloween freebie is leave me a comment on this post, with either your email address or your blog site, by midnight Pacific Time on Sunday October 18th. You can leave me a comment about anything or you can tell me what kind of candy or treats you're giving out for Halloween. Or, if you have a favorite candy you want to share, feel free and tell us! Look forward to seeing what kind of sweet tooth you guys have. :)

Have a great day!

Very Cute idea! How creative you are. I don't get to give out candy as we get no trick-or-treaters where I live now. So sad :( But this would be cute to take candy in to work!

Rose,
What a great idea! Love your little Jack-o-lantern!
After trick or treating with the kids ourselves, we do get a lot of trick or treaters to hand out candy to. We usually buy the "candy in bulk" bag that Walmart normally has this time of year, and my husband (an avid chocoholic:) buys some fun size chocolate bars; so we have a variety! :)
Not a big chocolate lover myself, but if I HAD to pick a candy bar, I would definitely have a Snickers!
Thank you for the chance to win!

Thank You

Oh, Greta would love this little bag! It would be the perfect size for her to carry all her treats (YESSSSSS, we let her have sweets. She is allowed to have anything that doesn't have soy it in. - But you know how she is - she'd probably ask for raisins instead!)

Our first year in our apt we were prepared with candy, but no one ever came. So we gave up on that. We spend the evening at our church's carnival anyways, so no matter. I think candy corn is my personal favorite. :)

Darling pumpkin box. I love how you used the corner punch for the face. So clever!

No trick or treaters at our house. No reason to buy the candy. But we still buy some anyway! We have to be prepared of course!!

We're in a new neighborhood this year, not sure what to expect or what we'll do. I love the pumpkin!

HOW CUTE IS HE!!!! Oh my goodness he's just the cutest!!

We normally get a ton of trick or treaters, I think one year I stood at the door constantly for a half and hour. So because we get soooo many Halloween guests, we'll be stocking up on whatever's on sale at Sam's club. Last year we got a ton of little Hershey bar, we'll see today what we'll be handing out. :)

Thanks for the great blog candy...again!

Hi Rose, your jack-o-lantern is a cutie! I will hand out various fun sized candy bars...standard fare after a Halloween blizzard left me with lots of candy I didn't like. Now it's chocolate all the way. Thanks for the chance to win. jmniffer
