Halloween ~ Yummy Mummy Mix!

Friday, October 09, 2009


Need a quick and EASY party favor for Halloween?!  Here's an idea that you can complete in a matter of minutes! 

I found this glass on clearance at one of our local stores for .25 cents!  Seriously!  I couldn't pass it up so I purchased 6.  I thought it would make an ideal holder for my Mummy Mix concoction.

Next I took a piece of black cardstock ... a scrap I had laying around and crumpled it all up.  Then I wrapped it around the glass and adhered it.

I stamped my mummy and prepared to color him in!


I pulled out my Tombow Markers and found a color that matched the glasses I had purchased!  #373!  I scribbled some of the ink onto an acrylic block ...

And then used my Tombow Blending Pen #N00 to pick up the ink and color my image.

Pretty easy!


Then I grabbed two Orange Copic Markers YR04 and YR07 and my White Prismacolor Pencil.  First I colored in the bag with YR04.  The lightest orange.


Then I outlined with YR07.


Next I used my lighter orange YR04 to color over and soften the line that I made with YR07.

DISCLAIMER:  I am NOT Copic Certified ... this is just how I do it! 

And then I go in and add highlights with my White Prismacolor Pencil.

I used my circle punch to punch out the mummy.  Then I stippled black ink around the white circle.  Next I took a piece of black cardstock, embossed it with my Fancy Flourishes and punched out a piece with my scallop oval.  I used pop dots to attach the circle to the scallop and the scallop to the black band.

Then I stamped the Mummy Mix stamp onto white cardstock.  Trimmed it down and stippled around it with black ink.  Notice that I took a paper crimper and crimped the end closest to the mummy.  Just for a little more interest.  I added a pewter eyelet, black ribbon and attached to the black strip with a pop dot.


Isn't this fun!  Each of my mummies came in a different color so I'll color each trick or treat bag the color of the mummy that I put in the glass.  And there are so many fun things I can put in the cup itself!  I can really pick out pieces for each recipient or make an all occasion glass for everyone!

I used black tulle to wrap my treats in and to give this project an over all spec-tac-uclar look!  I hope you enjoy!

Happy Paper Crafting!

  1. May I ask...Do you find when using copics the black outline from the stamps will tend to bleed when coloring in. What brand of black ink do you use for your stamps. Do you use a certain brand of paper too. Thanks so Much! Yur designs are great!
