Another treat holder

As promised, here is another project from this month's stamp camp. Each month one of the projects will be a 3-d item, and this month, with Halloween around the corner, I thought I'd demonstrate how easy it can be to make fun party favors.

Once again, using the Ghostly Greetings designer series paper made it super easy for me to use just one stamp on this whole project. But you won't find this stamp in the Fall/Winter idea book and catalog -- it's a preview from the new Holiday mini catalog called Eat, Drink & Be Scary. I debated whether or not to use this set, since it won't be available for purchase until October 1, but if I waited to use it at the next stamp camp it would be too late to order it in time for Halloween, so I decided to go ahead with the preview.

I love how the stamp fits perfectly into our curly label punch and I really like how the curly label shape looks layered over the 1 3/4" circle punched with another new punch.

Once the outside of the treat holder is made, all you need to do is put some candy in the small cello bag, fish out the top of the bag through the hole in the treat holder, and use some black hemp twine to attach the tag to some 1/4" pumpkin pie grosgrain ribbon.

It really is most adorable and, in addition to party favors, it could easily be used to hold treats for your kids' classmates or your co-workers.
