Last month I received this cute little mummy treat from my friend Linda. I loved it so much that I decided I wanted to use the idea for treats at the crop I did earlier this month. I decided to make little scarecrows for fall and each one has a butterscotch candy in it. I made probably 60-70 of them. But it was hard to stop and I had some left over lifesaver candies sitting around too. So I took the rest of the Cookie Cutter images and made one from each character. These are quick and easy little treats/thank yous that you could make for a group of people.
My scarecrow is on Very Vanilla card stock and stamped with the Archival Black ink pad and then I watercolored with my aqua painter – Dapper Denim for his clothes, and Sahara Sand on his face. I used my Stampin’ Write Markers for his patches and hat – Delightful Dijon and Pumpkin Pie. I punched out a plain Delightful Dijon cookie cutter and stapled the butterscotch candy between the two. These will actually stand up.
One tip I’ll share if you want to make a bunch of these is to create a template for your stamping. Since this is a builder punch you can’t just stamp a row and punch them out – you have to leave space in between for the builder pieces in the punch. Here are a couple of pictures to show you what I mean. I hope that is helpful.
And if you want to see the rest of the gang that I made (except the mummy that Linda gave me) her you go….
This is a really fun bundle of products and becomes a bit addictive if you aren’t careful!
Thanks for stopping by today.
