Sweet and Sinister Swap

Here are just some of the wonderful things I received from my swap partner, Kathy. None of my pictures due them justice. Everything was wrapped in a large piece of burlap. the "BOO" garland is made of 3 triangles of "designer" burlap. It has wavy stitched patterns in the burlap.
The "cupcake" looking things are another garland with card stock triangles covered with pattern tissue and various trims, and grunge board with chalkpaint and attached with Velcro, so it can be changed. Very cool !

This glittery candy corn cone was filled with homemade chocolate bat pops, a candy corn pen, orange wooden fruit, and a bat mask.

She did an "Alice" theme and covered a tin can above with book pages and a fine covering of glitter. the handle is darling french ribbon printed with "Alice" phrases. Below is a transfer panel she made.

She created the button bundles above with vintage text.

There was lots of trim. She is a quilter and fabric artist. the bag above was filled with beige bows and you can see some of the trims below. You cannot see how lovely some of the velvet ribbons were, however.
Now, these below are my favorites - tiny wool pin cushions. She used bottle caps for the bottoms - One is a spider web with spider and the other is a "starry night" theme.

She painted the head below and wrapped it with more french ribbon.

I had a wonderful talented partner. Thank you very much, Kathy.
