HSS Inspiration Challenge #90

Good Morning Stampers!!!  I loved making this weeks project for the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge, I just bought these tiny cello bags last week and thought they would be great for some tasty candy corn treats!  I saw a similar project on-line by Ashley Marostica, (and darn if she didn’t beat me to it!!) that’s what I get for blog surfing at night instead of finishing my projects :-)  Her version was super cute, and I was delayed in my assembly- but alas, they are done!

Check out the rest of the Design Team projects using this picture as an inspiration.  I love this image, it really makes me look forward to the upcoming holiday… I have been exercising and dieting like crazy just so I can enjoy a fanciful feast!!!  This time of year and pretty much anything Halloween or Thanksgiving themed makes me think of and salivate for CANDY CORN!!!  I love that crap. :-(
 I just got my polka-dot embossing folder and my thin cello bags last week and knew I wanted to make something with this adorable pennant punch to look like candy corn.  I added a bunch of little candy corns into the bags, which were somewhat easy to put in… I had to figure out a system to make it go easier.  I took a pencil and opened the bag first then they just slid right down. 
 I layered my card stock colors onto a white card stock base and then once all my pieces were adhered together then I ran the entire thing through the big shot with my polka-dot embossing folder.  Man I love my BIG SHOT!!  I use it with every project practically, would YOU like to get a BIG SHOT for FREE?!  Click HERE for more info on how to get yours.
 I used a cute sentiment from my Teeny Tiny Wishes set and stamped it on Vellum card stock using Staz-on black ink.  Then punched it out with the small oval punch.  Then created a hole in the candy corn shape and the sentiment tag with my Crop-A-Dile tool and ran my 1/4″ Pumpkin Grosgrain ribbon through and created a knot.
 I can’t wait to sell these at my upcoming craft show at my kids school.  They are so cute and would be so cute on every one’s plate on a beautifully set table scape.  I want some great Thanksgiving feast foods!!!

  1. Super cute idea to use the pennant punch! So creative. I’ll have to case it.

  2. These are making my mouth water…nom nom nom…off to the candy jar for me! :) Don’t you just LOVE those little bags? My kiddos put pencils in theirs yesterday, since I wasn’t sure if candy was allowed at the schools here. Awesome idea for the pennant punch too, I’m going to have to give that a try!

  3. These are soooo cute! I made some candy corns with the pennant punch too! I think the real things are yicky though!! I’ll stick to chocolate! My hubby just ate a whole bag in two days though, lol! I did have to look up online what order the colors were in, lol! Candy corns are super cute as are these treat bags! I wish I had kids to make things like this for, hehe!

  4. Great treat idea! Love your candy corn.
