Treats Galore!

Hi everyone.  Halloween is all about the treats of course and today I have some very charming treat holders to share with you!  I have professed my love for the October Afternoon 'Witches Hazel' paper pack and, as promised, here are the rest of the items I created with it.

The first treat holder is a delightful little box that is stuffed full of Halloween cookies.  The box is from Stampin' Up and I first inked the edges with 'Tangerine' Memento ink.  Then on to the fun and exciting part of choosing the papers, stickers and embellishments to use!  I cut stars with my MFT Die-namics Star Stax and put one on each side of the box , including the adorable tag on the top. 

Pictures of the other two sides of the box.  All are so cute! The checkered ribbon came from a package of Verve stamps I had previously ordered. Love to re-use!
I also covered some glassine bags with more of this darling paper set and layered them with lots of the stickers and labels.
The first treat bag features half of a Papertrey Ink Loopsy Daisy die, some Foo-Fa-La ribbon and a Fleur-de-lis.
The second bag shows the scary cat and a sweet sentiment.  I also added some ribbon and twine and a Prima padlock for safekeeping those treats!
Last, but definitely the cutest, is this treat jar filled to the brim with candy corn.  This was originally a jar filled with yummy salsa from Amanda's Darn Good Salsa in Leadville, Colorado and I knew it would be perfect for this project.  I painted and antiqued the lid with acrylic paints and then added a sweet little top to it.  I cut a label out of a few of the patterned papers with a Spellbinders die and then added more stickers and a couple of banner flags. This will look great on the desk of someone very special to me who loooves candy corn!
Thanks for checking out my blog!  Bee Happy!
