It's Not Always About Stampin' - PPA5.....




The Pals Paper Arts Challenge this week was Halloween. It seemed like a good time to try out the Sweet Treat Cups that are featured in the Holiday Mini Catalog. Cast-A-Spell Designer Paper and a wide pumpkin ribbon got me started. Next I reached for my Spooky Treats Rub-On Set. The skull and swirls easily adhered to the treat cup and even wrapped around the side. Then I applied "treats" to the ribbon. Because it is grosgrain I used the tip of the bone folder to make sure the letters adhered in between all of the ribbing. Two skulls were snipped from the designer paper and glued to the ribbon. I put orange M&M's into the treat cup and popped it through a punched 1 3/4" hole. A random Halloween sticker from my stash finished up the card - not an ink pad was opened!



Tip: To make sure only orange M&M's get inside the treat cup - eat the other colors!
