13 Days of Halloween – Day Three!

Welcome…I’m so glad you’re here for 13 Days of Halloween – Day Three!  Today I’m sharing a monstrous-ly fun project featuring the Monster Die and Halloween Fillings Mini Stamp Set…both from Ink to Paper!



Halloween means Monster Pancakes at our house…a fun family tradition that our grandsons LOVE!  I make my favorite made-from-scratch pancakes…and they get to create their own boo-tiful breakfast with lots of sweet goodies.



I thought it would be fun set their places at the table with something cute with monster sweets inside.  So…I grabbed a stack of tin tie coffee bags and filled them with everything they’ll need for a scary fun time, including:

  • Candy Corn
  • Candy Eyes
  • Mini M&M’s
  • Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
  • Reese’s Pieces
  • Mini Oreo Cookies
  • Orange Slices
  • Rope Licorice

We also have blueberries, strawberries and chocolate and maple syrups on the table…and canned whipped cream, of course.  I love how much fun the boys have…and they always get super creative with their monsters.

To create the bag wraps I die cut the Monster Die pieces in several cardstock colors…and then spent some putting the pieces together.  I cut the labels in DSP from my stash…tied the labels to the bags using Orange Zest Twill Tape…and added the monsters.  I stamped and added tags using the Halloween Fillings Mini Stamp Set, too.



And…here’s the pancake recipe I always use:

Make-from-Scratch Pancakes


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
  • 2 large, lightly beaten eggs
  • 2 to 2-1/4 cups whole milk


  1. Melt butter and allow to cool.
  2. Mix dry ingredients.
  3. Add cooled butter, eggs and milk.
  4. Stir only until combined.
  5. Drop in desired size onto hot, buttered griddle, turning when browned.


Thanks for stopping by!
