Pumpkin Treats

Fall is probably my favorite season. I just love it! One of the things I love so much are the pumpkins! Carving a pumpkin is one of my favorite childhood past times! How much my brother and I looked forward to it! As soon as I saw the ADORABLE jack-o-lantern cupcake image in the Stamp a Sweet Impression set "Trick or Sweet" I was in love! :) Since today is the first of October I decided to share my love with all of you! I wanted to make a little Halloween treat that involved pumpkins AND cupcakes so I decided to make a pumpkin container for my little cupcake!
To make this fun little treat I cut 8 pieces of pumpkin pie card stock (6" x 3/4") and put them together with a brad on each end. I then separated them until they formed a pumpkin form. After adding the embellishments I then stuck the cupcake inside.


I hope my directions are fairly clear. It was really easy to make so if you have any questions let me know!

Also, what is a treat with out a card to go along with it? I again used the jack-o-lantern image from the Trick or Sweet set along with this fun sentiment! The paper, brads, and ribbon used are also from the Halloween Key Ingredients kit (which is amazing).
Well, I hope you enjoyed my project! Again, if you have any questions, feel free to ask! Thanks so much for looking!
