Mason Jar Mummy

Grab yourself some mini mason jars and some cheesecloth to make these lil' cuties.  Start by cutting a couple of pieces of cheesecloth. Take the lid and pop the center out to add the cheesecloth to the center flat piece.  Pop back into the rim and add the googlie eyes with a glue gun.  Fill the jar with your favorite treats.
Add some ribbon or baker's twine and don't forget to add the cute
mason jar tag. 

The top, with the mummy face and tag.

Jar of Love....

Halloween Treats

It's time to start thinking about making those Halloween treats for school parties, friends, co-workers,  door knockers! 
Take a look at our new clear 2 x 2 tiny treat boxes. 
If you don't celebrate the holiday you can make a fall treat 
like I did below....

These cute boxes can hold exactly 7 of the Ghirardelli mini chocolate squares.  I purchased the Intense Dark pack as they are all black, perfect for Halloween treating.

Side view.......

The tags are used from this month's Paper Pumpkin kit.
If you haven't signed up yet for our monthly box check it out!
It's on bogo this month and sure to please!
Go to the right side bar on my home page and click on  paper pumpkin to sign up.

I squealed with delight when I found these adorable Dove chocolate pumpkins (Target Stores) and filled the above box with them.
Sky's the limit folks with the treat ideas to fill them.

I love the new Halloween night designer paper. I used the brick wall and added the Hardwood stamped piece to make a ledge for the Jack'o lantern to sit on.

Caramel Apple Card

Caramel Apple card 
 I made this by stamping the pumpkin from the Jar of Haunts set on to Pear Pizzaz card stock.  Once stamped I turned it over and added some shading with the Blender Pen and some of the Wild Wasabi ink. Stamp the gooey caramel on crumb cake card stock and shade with soft suede ink. 
 To make the stick, I used a bamboo skewer cut down to size.
Use adhesive to attach the caramel to the apple and tape the skewer to the back of the apple.
We have new cello bags sized at 2" x 8" (#141703) for $3.00
the apple fits perfectly right inside.  Slide it all the way down to the bottom and cut right above the skewer.

You can see I stamped the pumpkin and the gooey caramel.
Turn over the apple and add some Wild Wasabi ink to add some dimension to the apple.
