Witchy Necklace the MTE way . . .

I am having so much fun with the Halloween stamp sets from MTE this month that i have a few more spooky projects to share with you all

Smell my feet
Give me something good to Eat

I had a total blast putting this together from an old Lyles golden syrup lid,who would have thought?
I used

Step 1
Cut a circle from old book pages.
Pop some ink onto your craft mat,spray and then drag the paper through the ink and dry with a heat tool
Draw a witches shoe,cut out ,colour and add some glitz.
next stamp sentiment onto card,cut out into sections then stick them onto the background with the witchy shoes
Step 4
add glue and insert into lid
Step 5
Melt some Utee in a melting pot or grab a tinfoil cupcake case and use a heat tool to melt
{just be really careful if you do it that way}
Pour into lid and leave to set.

 See the blobs of Utee around the edges . . .
I took a little sandpaper to clean them up.

I also made a BOO BOO . . .no hole to pop the ribbon through . . eeeeek!
So first i panicked . . . then i took my crop o dile . . .closed my eyes and punched!
It did crack a little so i grabbed the heat tool aand melted it a little and voila one little necklace!

The tag was created the same way as step 1 and then stamped.

I altered the bottom of the tin for fun into a sweetie holder with it`s own little Utee bottle cap

because i looove the little cotton bags from the Stateline bag co. i made this as well
Phew i can not begin to tell you how much i adore working with the new stamps from MTE this month
and what a total blast i had putting together these projects to share with you all.
Thank you so much for looking

Wow!! You have been a very busy, creative girl and I love what you've been doing. The necklace is such an inspired and unusual idea - didn't matter that you forgot the ribbon hole - you solved the problem brilliantly! Love that you drew your own withces shoes too. I'm with you on those little bags - they look so gorgeous after you've finished with them!
Thanks so much for sharing all your lovely makes with us at ABAC's first challenge and I really hope you'll join us again soon.

This is great, and I love the tutorial! Now, a tip for you - if you have a toaster oven, you can just pour the UTEE into the lid and set it in the oven at 275 degrees to melt it. Won't take but a couple of minutes.
