All our Halloween Freebies will be available next September (2013)
These candy pencils are pretty easy to make and the sky's the limit on how you design them. The paper only measures 4 1/4" x 3 1/4" and can be made out of a scrap of paper. The top, or the eraser on the top of the pencil is just a pink strip of pink scrapbook. If you don't have a Cricut or Silhouette to cut out the circle for the top of the eraser, just trace the top of the Rolo roll for the circle. All this info is in the YouTube tutorial video. Click HERE to see it.
Archivers scrapbook paper is 50% off right now and they still have Halloween paper. Besides the Rolo candy, which we found at 79 cents, you may already have the rest of the supplies shown above. Hershey candy kisses are $3.28 at Walmart. Shopko puts them on sale regularly for only 2.99. They will most definitely go on sale between now and Halloween.
You can use scrapbook paper that is one color or has a design, either one looks great. I like to ink my designs. I think it gives the edges definition but this project can certainly be done without inking. I used brown ink for this project. I just purchased the Martha Stewart foam pouncers and I love using them when inking.
You can also just add a tag instead of putting them inside a bag and it's just as cute. In the photo you will see a tag cut out in the 1 1/2" scallop paper punch and the 2" scallop paper punch.
We put together these tags for the Rolo pencils, although you can use them for Halloween gifts for family and friends and even trick or treaters or as for a party favor.
Now, you'll want to know how to put together this sweet gift for teacher! We found a video tutorial on YouTube, the instructions were very good. Click HERE to see the video tutorial. But if you prefer a photo tutorial click HERE

I added in some crinkle paper for stability and that allowed the pencils to stand up nicely.
You could add the tags to the pencils at this time or just leave them off.
