Spook-tac-u-lar Day 19: Candy Wrappers

Welcome back to Day 19 of Spook-tac-u-lar Halloween Crafts.  Be sure to stop by and see what Rhonda has to share with you today at http://www.scraphappenswithrhonda.blogspot.com/ when you are finished here.

For today's project, I have some little candy wrapper treats.  At our Halloween party, we have the adults all bring treats or candy and let the kids go trick or treating after the costume contest.  This is what I have made for my treats this year.  I used a free candy wrapper svg file to cut the base of these and then decorated them.  They have a tootsie roll inside each wrapper.  The sides were tied with glitter craft cord in white and black.  I made bats, ghosts, Jack Skelingtons, witches, pumpkins and Frankensteins.
For the bats, I used George and Basic Shapes to cut the triangles for ears, a white pen to draw the mouth and fangs, and added google eyes.

For the ghosts, the face was drawn with a black sharpie marker.

For the Jack Skelington Face, I also used a black marker to draw the face.


For the witches, I drew the mouth with a black marker, added google eyes and used Paper Doll Dress Up for the hat.  I also used a white pen to add a line across the hat.
For the pumpkins, the face was hand drawn with a black marker.

For the Frankensteins (which are my personal favorite), I used the Martha Stewart Ice Cycle Punch and trimmed it down for his hair.  I then added google eyes and hand drew his face.
I am entering these into the following challenge:
