Halloween Treat Jar


Here’s a quick little treat jar for a Halloween celebration.  I began by using this darling pumpkin stamp from Batty For You stamp set and inked it up with Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Basic Black markers, then stamped on Whisper White card stock and punched it out with the 1-3/8" Circle Punch.  I punched another piece using Basic Black card stock and the Scallop Circle Punch, then paper pierced the scallops.  Next is a piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock cut to fit the lid of the jar with the Circle Scissors Plus.  This handy tool allowed me to cut precisely the size circle I needed.  I tied a piece of Pumpkin Pie 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon around the neck of the jar and added a tag cut from the Big Shot die cut machine using the Stampin’ Up! Lots of Tags Sizzlits Die.  I outlined the tag using a Pumpkin Pie marker and stamped "Yum-Yum" from the Tasty Sweet stamp set.  A finishing touch was to stamp the small pumpkin image from Holiday Blitz in Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink on a piece of Whisper White card stock, cut the image out and popped it up using a Dimensional.  I punched a hole with my 1/16" Circle Punch and to tied it onto the ribbon with a piece of white cotton crochet thread.  And, of course, I had to add some gourmet jelly beans in orange and black!  Nothing like color coordinating your candy to your design!
