A Month of Halloween

What used to be a single night of spookiness and sugar highs has turned in to a month long celebration of treats, decorations and parties. What would you do with a personalized Halloween stamp? More than you realize.

Fall is an amazing time to bake and share. Welcome crisp, cooler air by turning the oven on again. Filling your house with delicious smells can make packing away your cute sandals feel ok. The fall harvest lets you bake in quantities to share, whether it’s from your own garden or the farmers’ market. Zucchini bread for your neighbors, pumpkin cookies for the play group and an apple pie as a hostess gift. Give all of them a finishing touch with a personalized rubber stamp on a gift tag.

Then there are the parties. Children’s parties, adult parties and pre trick-or-treating parties. If you throw a Halloween party then a personalized Halloween stamp will cover all kinds of usages. Invitations, prize bags, treat bags, gift tags and thank you notes. And the best part of using a rubber stamp is you can reuse it every year and create a new look by changing the paper, ink and layout. If you have friends that host a Halloween party every year- a personalized Halloween stamp makes a great hostess gift.

If you have a special treat for your favorite neighborhood kids or know a child that is forbidden to have sugar, then the stamps work great to create packaging for a unique little gift. A simple stamp can transform even a brown paper bag.

If you send a store bought Halloween card, then a stamp on the back can give it more personality. If you scrapbook, try creating your own line of Halloween cards and finish them off with a stamping on the back of the card. And if you are a crazed mother with no time to make a card, let alone stand in an isle and pick a card, then get out the art supplies and your stamp and let your kids make some Halloween cards. This should give you a half hour to figure our where you put their trick-or-treating baskets.
