Tiny Little Brooms

This summer I finally got a chance to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios in Orlando.  I am a big fan of the Harry Potter series, so I was really looking forward to finally seeing Harry Potter's world up close and in person.  It was really fun and I was not disappointed--I'm not going to bore you with my vacation stories.  Instead I'm going to share with you my inspiration for my latest Halloween design.  

Whenever I travel, I often find myself in full creative mode.  During all of that downtime, my mind is always working and I'm constantly thinking about how I can incorporate trends into my wrapper designs.  This vacation was no different and as I was walking through the shops of Hogsmeade and waiting in line at Hogwarts castle, I couldn't stop thinking about this "witchy" Halloween design.  I couldn't wait to get home so I could get started.

It all started with these tiny little brooms.  They had cute little broomstick Christmas ornaments in one of the shops and I thought they were absolutely adorable (and overpriced).  While they were not exactly my taste, I did think that I could find a way to make them and incorporate them into a candy bar wrapper design.

After I made about 20 of these little brooms I started to play around with some new designs and bingo....a witch on a broom!

I am so pleased with the way that these came out.  They are so cute and I hope they will be a popular item for upcoming Halloween festivities.  I can make them on a variety of different wrapper colors and of course, I can personalize them for any occasion.  

This is such a fun little wrapper.  Thank you Harry Potter for the inspiration!
