Death By Candy Corn!

Heehee! I just LOVE this Odd Bird Planet sentiment stamp! Death by candy corn! I tell ya, what a WAY to GO! The only thing better, of course, would be death by CHOCOLATE. Yum.

I made a little gift for our neighbor and dear friend Jon, who I heard loves candy corn! Today is Jon's birthday, so what a perfect opportunity to bring over a favorite treat!

I used GP White, Only Orange, and Summer Sun paper strips to create a band around the container (which happens to be a recycled Archer Farms...Target brand...rice jar). I like how even the band resembles candy corn! The Death By Candy Corn stamp is actually a long stamp, so I inked up the words separately and arranged them so that I could contain them in a 1 3/8" circle punch. I matted that circle on a black scalloped circle and alternated Deep Yellow and Orange Kaisercraft rhinestones to embellish! Tied a few ribbons around the neck and ALL DONE!

Check back tomorrow for another creation and a super exciting giveaway! It'll be something we'll have in the store SOON, but you could win it first!!

Ooh, and speaking of blog candy, our DT member and friend Ryann is offering up some AWESOME goodies on her blog! Be sure to check it out HERE!
