BOO poems and Ideas

Heather Engebretson Inspiration, Samples 0 Comments

When designing this stamp set I had to make a “Boo” Poem stamp.  The original Boo poem is about three paragraphs long, so this is a shortened version.  It is only one paragraph, and fits on a 4″X 6″ index card.

If you have ever been “BOO”ed you know what I am talking about.  When you “BOO” someone you leave a them a bunch of goodies with the Boo card attached.  Then they Boo two of their friends and so on and so forth.  It is such a fun and my kids get a Huge kick out of it every year! Below are some examples of how to boo in small, medium, and large ways.  The first is a card that  you could attach to a bag of candy corn.  It would be perfect for an office settings as it would fit in the office mailboxes.   web10

The second is the poem attached to a bag of tootsie rolls which could be left on a teacher’s or co workers desk.  web9

The last picture shows a note with ribbon attached that you can tie around a Pumpkin filled with trick or treat goodies.  Perfect for Neighborhood friends.web 6

 This is such a fun tradition…..
