Are you ready for Trick-or-Treating yet? Our Lil' Peeps are! These spooky little characters are only 2.3" tall, and I used Peachy Keen Stamps for their faces and candy buckets. I created the Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster and Witch from our Trick-Or-Treat Lil' Peeps SVG Collection at only 2.3" tall, and they make the cutest little scene.

- I inked the edges of Dracula's cape in black, which added a nice touch.
- For the candy buckets, be sure and "Break Apart" top layer and delete the jack o' lantern faces. At this tiny size they probably wouldn't cut very well.
- For the cute faces, you could draw simple faces with a black felt-tipped pen or even use googly eyes. I used the Monster Mash Face Assortment by Peachy Keen Stamps. For the jack o' lantern candy buckets, I used the 3/8" faces from the assortment. For the Lil' Peeps faces, I used the 5/8" stamps from the assortment. You could even use the plain "Everyday Character" faces from Peachy Keen to make your Lil' Peeps look more like cute kids who are dressed up.
- My black ink pad didn't stamp as dark as I would have liked. I think I need to pick up a new one next time I'm at the craft store!
- I used leftover paper from 2009 for the card base. First I cut out and assembled my Lil' Peeps and then I held them up against various papers to choose the paper for the oval first. Then put that up against other papers to choose your zig-zag paper and then your card base.
- If you have some of the "cute" character faces from Peachy Keen, it'd be fun to make other Lil' Peeps for this card instead for more of a cute card - maybe the Princess, the Bee and the Jack O' Lantern Free SVG!
I hope you have fun with your final Halloween preparations! If you're feeling crafty, there's still time to make some party decorations or treat bags for special trick-or-treaters or even cards! Happy crafting!
