A Sweet Treat Idea

Hello All!

I have a quick and simple project idea to share today. This is something I first saw on Emily's blog and in then again in the newest Stampin' Success magazine. It's an altered treat jar!

I got this jar from IKEA, but you could use any small jar to make this candy treat. I used my Coluzzle, Scalloped Circle Nestabilities, Scalloped Circle Punch, and 1 3/8" Circle Punch to make the layered topper for the jar. The image is from Haunting Halloween and has been colored with watercolor crayons and an aquapainter.

The M&Ms are really fun and vibrant colors for Halloween so I went with a color combo that was as close to these colors as I could get. I used Black, Eggplant, Kiwi, and White cardstock and then added striped orange grosgrain ribbon. The final step was to fill the jar with the candy! Pretty quick and easy! :)

Be sure to check back tomorrow for a new STAMP SOMETHING challenge! You can bet it will be a spooky one too! Happy Stamping! :)
Oh yeah....my good friend and fellow blogger Erin is celebrating her first blogoversary and she's offering up a great blog candy prize! Head over and check it out! Happy blogoversary Erin! Yay!
