Halloween Treat Set


I always have an empty coffee can or two sitting around, so I decided to turn one into a Halloween treat can. I covered it with SU! Creepy Crawly paper, making a matching circle for the lid with my Fiskars Circle Cutter. I added ribbon from Michael's to the top and bottom, first running it through my Xyron Sticker Maker (the orange X) to make it sticky. I added a strip of paper (the opposite side pattern) around the middle of the can. You can see it in the side view photo (click on a photo to enlarge).

















The images are from C.C. Designs. You can find them at All That Scraps. Bob Jack O' lantern, Fred Jack O'lantern, and the sentiment are all in the Halloween sets, and Bob & Jack are also sold separately. I stamped them on Bazzill Coconut Smoothie cardstock with SU! Basic Black ink. I masked Bob and stamped Fred once on each side. They were colored with Prismacolor Pencils and blended with odorless mineral spirits and blending stumps. I created a shadow under them with a SU! Creamy Caramel marker. I added piercing to the corners, matted it on SU! Pumpkin Pie cardstock, and added orange eyelets to the sides. I punched out the sentiment with a SU! scalloped circle punch, then sponged the edges with Pumpkin Pie ink. I tied Martha Stewart ribbon to the sides of the panel, tying the sentiment on as well. I attached the panel to the can with Sticky Strip. I stuck the sticky strip to the right and left sides about 1/2" in, so those edges would have a little dimension.


I made a matching gift card with SU! Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black cardstock. I added a Bazzill Bitty Blossom and a Bazzill white brad. This was a fun set to make -- now I just have to decide who will receive it! Thanks for stopping by today-- have a great night! :)
