Res-Q #19: Trick or Treat

I had so much fun with this week's Res-Q challenge! Jean challenged us to make some Halloween treats or treat holders this week, and offered a whole bunch of ideas for inspiration. You can see the challenge and her ideas HERE. I decided to make some sour cream containers, since I'd never made any before and had always wanted to try. I like a challenge, so I made the first pair out of acetate. I stamped a bat image using black Stazon all over the acetate, then filled the containers with Halloween kisses.
For the second pair, I used some scraps of Halloween designer papers from my stash. These were so quick and easy; I made them in just a few minutes. I am adding them to goodie bags for my nieces and nephews, so I left the containers plain, but it would be easy to embellish them up a bit and add a tag or sentiment.
Stamps: Victorine originals bat
Ink: Stazon black
Paper: acetate, misc. dp
Accessories: crimper, sticky strip

Great job, Michelle--I like both versions but it was super clever to do the acetate ones. I've got to try that. I wonder if cellophane would work? Ya think"
