Two Tags Halloween Treat

I bet you are wondering how many of these things I am going to post! I am too... when I stop thinking of/finding new ideas, I'll stop. How's that sound :) This is really easy to make too. I think the white gel pen really adds pop to it. Inside is a mini Hersey's bar that is about 4" long. Kit Kat, Whoppers, etc. would work too.

  • Stamps: Pumpkin Patch, Teeny Tiny Wishes

  • Paper: Chocolate Chip textured cardstock, Chocolate Chip, Dusty Durango, and Very Vanilla card stock

  • Ink: Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Dusty Durango, Old Olive

  • Other: 1-3/4", 1-3/8", 3/4", and Scallop circle punches, Modern Label and Word Window punches, Signo white gel pen, gold brad, Two Tags die with Big Shot

  1. Cut tag out with Two Tags die and the Big Shot. Score 1/4" below prescored line. Crease on score lines. 
  2. Stamp round pumpkin image on Very Vanilla paper with Pumpkin Pie and Dusty Durango ink using the Rock & Roll technique, the stem and vines in Old Olive, the face in Chocolate Chip. Stamp "happy halloween" in Chocolate Chip on another scrap of Very Vanilla.
  3. Punch the pumpkin out with the 1-3/8" circle punch, the "happy halloween" out with the Word Window punch. Punch a Choc Chip Scallop circle, a Modern Label, 1-3/4", and 3/4" circles out of Dusty Durango.
  4. Layer Word Window and Modern Label punches together and adhere inside the tag on the lower portion.
  5. Layer all but the 3/4" circle together.
  6. Use white gel pen to make faux stitching around tag, and to make white dots on the scallps.
  7. Pierce a hole in the center of the 3/4" circle and attach to the top of the tag with a gold brad.
  8. Adhere candy to inside of tag. Adhere matted pumpkin to the folded up edge of the tag so that the top of the circle fits inside the slit at the top of the tag. All done!

And here is a pic of the inside. Helps the directions make sense, doesn't it :)
