Now some blahblah about my quickie project:

The other day, my kids and I were at Cost Plus and found a pretty bag of caramel covered, chocolate drizzled popcorn that had these mysterious orange-ish and reddish candy-looking things mixed in with it. I thought, “Wow! This would be perfect for little treats for all the cousins who come over for Halloween!”  So I bought the big bag and brought it home. I made a cute little bag for it by running the coffee bag through my Big Shot with one of the plain oval Nestabilities. I added a strip of patterned paper, another Nestability-cut oval frame, and this sweet little scarecrow (available today at Kraftin’ Kimmie!), then filled it with a cello bag that I’d stuffed with some of the popcorn. I was so excited – how cute, right? – added a big bow, and then decided to try the popcorn.

UGH. It was repulsive. Brought the kids in to try it, too. Verdict: Throw. The. Whole. Bag. Out.

Guess I’ll be working on some other kind of treat for the cousins!  I think this cutie pie scarecrow will find his way onto tags! 🙂  Thanks for visiting today!

    LOL- the treats do *look* yummy at least, especially in that cute bag! Personally, I’d pick through and eat the caramel corn at the very least 😉

    Superb idea with this image for the season of Harvest/Thanksgiving. Love what you’ve done in pairing that silky ribbon & bling with the scruffy scarecrow patchworked character.
