I can't believe that it's almost the end of October and Halloween is upon us. If you're anything like me...you'll be jamming this week to get your Halloween goodies out...hope I can help with some ideas. Here's a quick idea using my Martha Stewart fence punch (again!) to make a Halloween pumpkin patch:
I started off with these candies since they were the right size and "pumpkin-shaped":
I used two 5" x 5" squares of orange tissue paper to wrap each candy:
I just wrapped the tissue around the candy and scrunched up the top like this:
Then, I cut about 5" of ribbon and put some double stick tape along one side...I used this ribbon to wrap around the top of the tissue paper to seal in the candy and form a pumpkin stem. (Trim off any tissue paper sticking out of the top). I finished it off with a length of leaf garland (from Ben Franklin) wrapped around the stem. Below, I used stamp #C106 (Maddy the Witch) with double stick foam on a single candy pumpkin:
Enjoy the rest of your weekend...and have a great week!!!
