Halloween Party "Treasure HAUNT"

Who can argue? Isn't Halloween the best holiday
for papercrafting?
(I'll be changing that statement to Christmas time, soon!)
If you are planning a Halloween party or gathering,
I have some suggestions for using some of the new
(and older favorite) SnapDragon Snippets designs
to make your "Haunt" even more fun!
(A list of the designs used with their ID numbers can be
found at the end of this post.)

That opening image table is TOO full, I'm afraid, so I will isolate some of the ideas.

Here is the beginning of a place setting. Included: (clockwise from upper left) bat candy cello bag topper, juice box wrapped with ghost circle tile front embellishment, checker bones placemat, pumpkin placecard, menu placard with flourished bat.

Invite your guests with a custom made card. Here is frankenstein head 5x7 card that has the "Monster Bash" addition to the front to make it a party invite. Lower right is the "goodie" bag that is found at the end of the scavenger "haunt". The home-make cinch top  bag (fabric scrap) has a spider cameo of flocked heat transfer vinyl on the front. Lower left is a gourmet cupcake with a spider wrapper.

Miniature envelopes hold the clues for the scavenger "haunt". These were numbered using the versions from the halloween tag or box fronts mix n match design.

Why not have the hunt "stops" include some activities, such as making an origami bat to take home. At the top is shown one completed bat, and the pre-perforated "blank" that each participant would begin with. These can be completed in 3-4 minutes max! (See a tutorial on this blog.)

Use the goblin foot prints designs to give extra clues along the hunt route.

We had so much fun with the "Catch A Leprechaun" hunt that we couldn't resist a similar set up for Halloween with goblins!

These pointing bony hands aren't being too helpful as they currently are oriented. Still, it might be fun, at some confusing spot in the hunt, to have these hands direct traffic toward the ultimate goal. The skeleton pointing hand large and small cut file includes both sizes, and left and right pointing, of course.

Finally, a collection of dimensional decorations from which to choose.
(The quilt in the background makes this a bit busy, but I couldn't resist the colors.)
In front is the spider 3d bowl filled with peanut butter Reeses Pieces.
Moving around the image clockwise, the 3d witch's boot is filled with hard candy sticks, in the center is the "Spooky" 3d letter box ensemble. Behind is the chicken wire mesh framed October on the Docket mini quilt, and finally the vinyl decorated white pumpkin.

Hope you can find some inspiration 
for all the potential Halloween fun!
