Brooms & boots

Pin It


Susan Adams saw this idea to make a witches broom out of a brown bag. So we took the idea and flew with it then added fun tags with the Bootiful Occasions stamp set. The bootiful thing about this stamp set is that it can be used for many different occasions. The smaller broom is made with a coffee filter and a tootsie pop. On the tag, make a slit on each side of the boot with an exacto knife to slide the DSP behind the boot. September 2012 project.

  3. This is my first visit to your blog and I'm so excited! I am Jann's 2nd downline in Oklahoma. I saw this project that Connie Stewart brought back from Founder's Circle and I just love it!! Our grandkids don't eat chocolate so I'm really excited to make these for them for Halloween. What a fantastic project and thanks for adding the instructions for cutting the bag. Connie tried to tell me how but I was not getting it...LOL
