Well, this is my first ever Blog Hop Challenge - so please be kind!
This month's challenge was to dress up, alter or change an ordinary brown paper bag. So here is what I created!
I used the Friendship Jars die to cut out the jar. Next, I cut out the jar topper from Green Tea Leaves patterned paper using PTI's Friendship Jars Jar Toppers die. I stamped the label with some dark chocolate PTI ink, and the "Pumpkins" sentiment with ripe avocado PTI ink. I colored in some white silk ribbon from PTI with a copic marker (sorry, can't remember the color). Next, I diecut the various leaves using PTI's Leaf Prints dies and some cool sheets of very think cherry wood I found in the scrapbooking section of Michael's. I stamped the leaf images from Leaf Prints with Terracotta Tile ink, garden green SU ink, pumpkin pie SU ink, and I believe daffodil delight SU ink, and then adhered the leaves to the paper big using my Zig glue pen.
When I first thought of this idea I was worried because I wasn't sure if the stores would be selling candy corn yet (being as though it is still summer). Well, my compulsive shopping husband saved the day, as I remember that last year after halloween he went on a candy corn buying binge (even though he really doesn't eat sweets) because he couldn't resist the 75% off discount and thus we had a stash of these candy pumpkins sitting in the garage. What luck!
