Red Rubber Designs - Bone Appetit & More Bone Appetit

For my post today I have some fun ideas for you using the July featured stamp sets, Bone Appetit and More Bone Appetit.  Here are a few treat projects I created, and at the bottom of the post I have listed many more ideas.

 I used Cha Cha Patterned cardstock and a saying from Bone Appetit to make a topper for skeleton bones (pretzels).

 This fun treat is a Hersheys candy bar wrapped in gauze to make a mummy.  I added google eyes and a tag with a saying from Bone Appetit.

A mixture of raisins, nuts and candy corn make a Ghost Grub treat in a jar.  The saying is from Bone Appetit.

How about a spooky iced drink with a little food coloring to make Witches Brew?  The saying is from More Bone Appetit.

And don't forget your dog.  He would enjoy a treat in a bag too with a special saying from Bone Appetit.  The topper on the bag has Amelia Patterned Cardstock.

Here are a number of other ways to use these two stamp sets.  These are taken from some ideas suggested by The Angel Company several years ago.

Bone Appetit Ideas

BEWARE - cleverly conceal Pop Rocks in a tube or open them all up and put them i a bowl.  Serve them as a topping for ice cream for a thrilling effect!

SKELETON BONES - Create a mixture of healthy snack mix and candy "bones" that you can find at your Halloween store.

YUMMY MUMMY - Anything CHOCOLATE!  This is great for co-worker gifts. 

RICE CREEPIES - Make a batch of Rice Crispy Treats and add a touch of food coloring to the batch.

MUMMY MIX- Serve up some healthy dry snacks.  Incorporate raisins and/or dehydrated fruit.

GHOST TOASTIES- Make toast and use a ghost cookie cutter to cut out.  To make it even creepier, add a touch of food coloring to the butter.  Or add food coloring to milk to pour over cereal.

TERR-FRIED EGGS - Make eggs look scary and over cooked.  Consider adding food coloring, ham, green peppers, or other omlet style food to the eggs.  Serve with Ghost Toasties!

COUNT DRACULA - For breakfast add some ice and food coloring to milk.For juices add food coloring for a spooky look.  For a fancy drink mix Sprite, food coloring and shredded ice.  Top each drink with a pair of wax fangs.

GHOST GRUB - Trail mix combined with various colored candy corn.

GHOULISH GOURD - This goes with anything made with pumpkin - pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie, pumpkin rolls, or even a plastic pumpkin filled with spooky treats. 

DEVILED EGGS - They just sound spooky!  Let the egg shells crack and then brush food coloring on to the egg shells.  Let the food color penetrate the shell.  Peel the eggs...they will look spooky!

BOO-BERRY PIE - This fabulous stamp can be used with your favorite pie.  Or maybe you'd like to create little pies in the shapes of ghosts for good little ghouls and boys.

BAT WINGS  - BBQ wings never looked so.....curious.

WITCHES BREW - Make Shirley Temples for your little ones or any clear soda with a touch of green food coloring.  Garnish with a cherry.  This would be fun served in a cauldron lined with dry ice!  Spooky!

FRANKEN BURGERS - Create 'mini' burgers.  Serve on a dinner roll 'bun'.

HALLOWEENIES - Take a hot dog and give it legs like an octopus....cutting up about half way.  Cooke the hot dog in the microwave or boil.  Make 2 eyes using gel cake decorating frosting.  Serve on a bed of Ramon noodles....cooked without the flavor packet.  Color the noodles with food coloring.  Place your hot dog in the middle of the noodles and serve.

SPOOK-ETTI -Make your spaghetti as normal, however, use food coloring to color the noodles before serving.  Serve with garlic bread....aka GHOST TOASTIES and a COUNT DRACULA.

BONE APPETIT - My favorite!  Dog bones for the special dog in your family.
