Vintage halloween cards

I have to admit that I am not really into halloween, but I do admire the Americans and how they do such gorgeous displays on their mantle pieces and driveways. I wish it wasn't so commercial over here because the Americans still seem to manage to keep it quite traditional with the pumpkin patches and the harvest festival displays. However I saw these lovely Melissa Frances papers and bought them to make an autumnal layout, then I spied the cutest little chocolates in TK-Max and thought why not make a wee gift for some friends.
The chocolate is inside the little envelopes which close with a loop of gold elastic through an eyelet and hook around a brad. The images were free from the vintage holiday crafts website. I just wish we had a pumpkin patch nearby!!
