Scary Sweets...

Another fun and simple gift idea! I'm always looking for a neat way to mass produce that is pretty quick and affordable. With my oldest in Pre-K now its always fun making her Teacher's little gifts. They certainly deserve a sweet thank-you...afterall, I'm not sure I'd have much patience handling sixteen 4-year Anyhoo, on to the tags. I cut both the black and orange cs with my nesty dies and for added dimension, I ran the orange cs thru my cuttlebug folder. If you don't have a cuttlebug, you could always use your Scor-Pal and scor a bunch of lines for the pumpkin skin. The pumpkin stem is my SU! tag punch and to pull the ribbon thru easily, I added a SU! jumbo eyelet. The pumpkin face is from my Spooky Sweets Set. I decided for the eyes and mouth to "pop" I'd stamp them on yellow cs and emboss them in sparkly black powder. I find that the embossing powders with sparkle don't always melt the way I'd like...but I'm ok with this imperfection...I'm no expert at embossing, but it sure if fun! So what do you say...celebrate your little one's Teacher's...Lord knows they are overworked and DEFINITELY under paid! My Sister will thank me:)
