3rd Annual Popcorn Blog Hop Party 2015 with Laura Kelly Designs

It's time for Laura Kelly Design's 3rd Annual Popcorn Blog Hop Party!  The objective is to take a plain old popcorn box and turn it into something festive and fun.  This year, there are 50+ craft bloggers who've been asked to create for this annual event. 

  We received product samples from some pretty awesome companies to create with and were allowed to add additional embellishments.There are several super nice prizes up for grabs.  Be sure to check out all the crafty inspiration, and enter the Rafflecopter giveaway link at the bottom of this post to be entered in the random prize drawing. 

My project is titled, "Ghouls Rule".  As luck would have it, Adornit is one of the sponsors and as many of you know, I LOVE Adornit!  I actually had a couple sheets of the blender paper sample that was sent, so I covered my entire box in the black polka dot paper.

The next sponsored product I worked with was the Kunin Felt.  I hand trimmed these cute little ghosts and adhered them with Alene's tacky glue.

 I was also sent some Scotch Washi tape in black and orange.  Notice those little signs that my spooks are holding?  I peeled off a 3" strip of orange and a 3" strip of black, then used my craft knife to divide my strips into thirds, lengthwise.  I overlapped one black strip and one orange strip.  Starting at the bottom of my trimmed wooden skewer, I wrapped the overlapped washi around my skewer.  It gave it kind of a swizzled look that I just love!  I repeated the wrap process with my remaining strips and skewers, then made little signs using the Adornit letter stickers that were sent.

When I finished, I unwrapped my Lollipic sucker, also a sponsor, and enjoyed my little treat!  Orange flavored and delicious!  The edible label is pretty cool too.

My popcorn recipe is very simple.  Pop your corn.  Add mini marshmallows, candy corn and/or peanuts.  Toss and enjoy!

Thanks so much to all the sponsors of this event!
