Fun Little Treats

Not fancy schmancy, just a quick little gift idea (for any occasion really - just change up the filling and decor - check out my other sample below)... I took this cute little jar, filled with some candy corn, added some gorgeous SU 1-1/4" Striped Ribbon around the cap and embellished the cap front. Viola, instant cute little gift, right? By the way, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie are a perfect color match for candy corn :)
* My Circle Scissor Plus came in extremely handy to make just the perfect Crushed Curry circle to 'hide' my cap. This is a must have tool if you want easy, quick perfect circles
* Using my Scallop Circle Punch, I popped out a Pumpkin Pie Scallop Circle and with a dauber, sponged the edges in Pumpkin Pie. I'm never without my daubers - a little distressing of edges adds a lot of depth
* With the Batty for You set, I inked up my pumpkin image with my SU Markers. I love using my markers to isolate colors on my images. Basic Black makes the cute sentiment stand out around my Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive pumpkin.
* A few small google eyes adhered with Crystal Effects makes it a bit whimsical.

A simple gift idea, under 10 minutes to kreate. Recycle some of your jars and have fun making a cute little treat :) Hope this gives you some inspiration for any last minute Halloween goodies.
