Have a Happy Halloween Gift

Hello Friends,

Some of the Trendy Twine Gals did a little gift exchange for Halloween! Here is what I created for one of my DT Sisters, Millie.
I made a homemade Candy Corn Sugar Scrub with all natural ingredients. I just added food coloring to get the candy corn colors and stacked it in this cute little jar which I decorated of course with some amazing Halloween Orange Licorice Trendy Twine!

For the card, I started with a white card base and added a few layers of patterned papers perfect for Halloween. I added some black lace trim at the bottom where the papers ended. I also took more of the Halloween Orange Licorice Trendy Twine and wrapped it around the card front several times for additional visual interest and texture.  At the top, I  took a length of some fancy black ribbon and created a ribbon treatment which I embellished further with orange seam binding, a button, and another layered bow made from Halloween Orange Licorice Trendy Twine.  
I stamped my focal image which was a jar full of candy corn (to compliment my gift):) I added a tiny tag with a greeting to the jar A little something for you! I then die-cut the word Halloween from orange cardstock and placed at the bottom right of the card. Next I stamped, Have a Happy in black ink just left and above the Halloween. All that was left, was to round the corners at the bottom. 

I did add some other goodies to the box for an additional treat. (not handmade, so I figured you wouldn't care to see!)

I hope you enjoyed this little Halloween Treat as much as I enjoyed making it. 

Thank you for stopping by and visiting me today! 

Supplies were various stamps in my collection: Greeting/Sentiment: My Creative Time, Jar: My Craft Spot (no longer available), Candy Corn: DeNami Design.
