Candy Corn Jar

Hi, everybody!  How's your weekend been?  Mine has been lovely...having fun creating and enjoying the cooler weather.  We've had a little taste of fall.

Thank you to everyone who participated in Challenge #1!  It is now closed.
Okay, I have a confession:  I have no idea how to tell who won!   How embarrassing.   I thought I set it up for Inlinkz to random select a winner, but I can't tell if that it happened.  So...I just emailed them and hopefully, I'll know something soon.  But, it was awesome to have so many of you link up - I got to see the most wonderful fall projects.  I've still got a few of you to visit.  I will get there soon!

How about a quick, cute little project idea?

I love the colors of candy corn and even though I don't really want to eat a lot of them (one or two does it for me),they still make me smile!

Let me give you a few tips I figured out while putting this together:  

You want the top to be somewhat sturdy.  It's a little hard to see but I've got a black scallop circle out of 100 lb cardstock under the top tag.  The double layer of cardstock really helps it sit on top of the jar just right.  

Then you want to scrunch the cupcake wrapper tight around the top of the jar.  

The last tip is to twist your ribbon to make it thinner.  I had a hard time tying the ribbon around the cupcake wrapper,  But when I figured out to make the ribbon thinner, it tied around the cupcake wrapper much easier.  The other thing you can do is to put a little bit of glue on the opposite side of where the ribbon is going to be to hold the ribbon on.

The candy corn image I used to create my tag is a freebie.  You can find it HERE.

Well, hopefully I'll find out who won the gift certificate for Challenge #1 soon!  Thank you for your patience with me while I work through my Linky ignorance!  

Have a lovely week!

Isn't her dog sweet?  I was lucky to find such a darling vintage card!  I've got her and the sentiment ready for you to download.

Halloween Party 2015, Day Three

It's Day Three!  I can't wait to see what everyone has for us today.   It's so fun to hop around and see all the Halloween Goodies.  If you missed Day One or Day Two, you can find them HERE and HERE.

My first project today features one of my all time favorite cut-files from The Cutting Cafe.  I use the seed packet file all the time!  It's perfect as a treat, card, and tag pocket.  

I think the Boo-tiful Day sentiment is so pretty.  Wouldn't this be perfect as a "You've Been Booed" treat?  This is part of a Cutting Cafe file.  I'm thrilled with this black and gold pocket!

I also made a tag using The Cutting Cafe's Halloween Labels.  You can get all the links to the files below.

Project Two is a treat box you can download.  

And I love the black cat in a pumpkin - adorable, right?  I've got that ready for you to download too.  It's part of the vintage images for Halloween Party 2015.

Download the treat box HERE and HERE.
Download the black cat HERE.
Download the Printable Tags HERE.
This box is super easy to put together.  The tabs (where the glue will go) are the solid yellow.   You need to print both pages.  If you have any questions, the video from THIS POST has a similar box.  

If you like the patterns of this box, you can find a cube shaped box (and another cute kitty download perfect for Halloween) with a lid in THIS POST.

How about one more project?  This one is magic!!  Do you remember the magic slider cards from awhile back?

It really seems like magic when the picture is pulled out  and it changes from black and white (or in my case black and yellow) to full color!  The Halloween Magic and Tab are part of the tag printables above.  Hard to photograph how cool it really is!  I've got a video to show all the details on putting this one together.

Remember we've got PRIZES!  Another BIG THANK YOU to the Halloween Party sponsors:
