I took another break from my Stampin' Up Square Pillow Boxes to show you Stampin' Up's September Paper Pumpkin monthly kit called Wickedly Sweet Treat. And, what a Wickedly Sweet Treat packaging idea it is!!! Below is a picture of two of the Treat Bags that I made up over the weekend!
Aren't they just adorable! You can leave the straw's out and you will get more of a hay stack look. The only item that did not come in the kit shown in the above picture is the little leaf on the pumpkin on the Treat Bag's tag on the right.
I put a Popcorn Ball in the treat bag on the left. It was a little bit of a tight fit; but, it worked out perfectly. The treat bag on the right has a little baggie full of miniature Tootsie Rolls. The treat bag on the left is bigger than the one on the right because of the Popcorn Ball. I'm going to put Candy Corn and caramels in the other treat bags.
In the picture below, the first 8 tags on the piece of Soft Suede Card Stock are the tags I stamped from the kit as the picture shows on the front of the instructions. The last tag and the tags on the Treat Bags are my own designs.
Here are some close up pictures:
I embellished the straws with some of my own stash using Stampin' Up's Sparkly Season Stamp set for the Pumpkins and Stems, Haunt Ya Later Stamp Set for the Sentiment and Among the Branches Stamp Set for the Little Crow.
Here's a close up of the embellishing at the top of the straw's.
Now, don't laugh too hard!!! Below is one of the Treat Bags that I made especially for my Cousin, Will, who is my Father's Namesake! I wonder if they are following my blog! If so, it won't be much of a surprise.
I used the splotch stamp that's in Stampin' Up's Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set and stamped splotches all over the fringe using Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant and Cajun Craze Ink's. The top fringe made me think of a head of hair so I made some eye's, a nose and a mouth to make a face!
For the eye's, I punched a circle out of SU's Black Glimmer Paper. Then I punched an Oval out of Whisper White Card Stock, stamped it with the Spider Web stamp from SU's Witches' Night Stamp Set and loaded it up with Crystal Effects for an awesome shine. I punched a smaller circle from the Black Glimmer Paper and a tiny, tiny circle from SU's Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper using the smallest circle in the Owl Builder Punch for the rest of the eye's.
Below is a close up of the face:
Below is a close up picture of how I embellished the straw using items from my own stash. The Bat is from Stampin' Up's Cheer All Year Stamp Set and the little Spider hanging from the Silver Cording is from SU's Howl-o-ween Stamp set.
Now, that was fun! I really enjoy putting these monthly kits together.
