Quick and Easy Treats!

Hi there! Happy Saturday to you! We have cross country and soccer today, plus Kyle's homecoming dance, so it's going to be a busy day! I have a quick and easy project to share with you. I created it because Megan needed a treat to give to her cross country "buddy" at today's meet. They exchange little gifts three times during the season. I repurposed this Prima container and filled it with chocolate kisses. When I saw the "Yum" across this Ghostly Greetings paper, I thought it would be great for covering a treat container. I love this color combination, and I like that this particular pattern isn't strictly for Halloween.

I had to cut two strips of the paper to completely go around the container. I stamped the sentiment from the level one hostess set Best Yet. After stamping, I used an Aquapainter to highlight the words with Pumpkin Pie and Kiwi Kiss ink. I used the Designer Label punch to punch out the sentiment, then I backed it with a 1 3/8" circle. I added some dots with a black gel pen, then I used the Horizontal Slot punch to create a slider for the ribbon. That's it!

Thank you for visiting today. I'll be back tomorrow with my Sunday Supper recipe, so I hope you'll stop back! Have a fantastic day! :)
