Candy Corn Favor

Candy Corn Favor
This candy treat was so sweet to make. I love candy corn so it was a good excuse to open the bag and test the freshness of the candy, lol! The mummy with the candy corn is a digital stamp from Bugaboo. The words are a digital stamp from Paper Dreams of Mine. I colored the image with MS Paint and then just aged the mummy with a little brown chalk. I also chalked the "Happy Halloween" sentiment. The bag topper is a piece of paper torn from a damaged book that I am recycling. I ran my stamp pad around the edges to distress it a little. The candy corn is by Brachs because (in my opinion) they have the best candy corn!

TOP TIP TUESDAY - pages from hardcover books work wonderful for all types of paper crafting. The paper is a nice weight for painting and stamping on. I use the text as background papers all the time. You can pick up damaged books that people are ready to throw out at garage sales and thrift stores. They are perfect for recycling projects.

I am entering this Halloween Party Favor in the following challenges:

Stampotique - #66 party favor
The Paper Shelter - #82 fall image & colors
Top Tip Tuesday - recycle it + tip
Dilly Beans - autumn colors
Through the Craftroom Door - #36 anything goes
Just Some Lines - lets celebrate Fall
Alota Rubber Stamps - #91 3D
Anything But a Card - #2 GD

Today is the first day of fall. Spend a relaxing moment and visit the above listed sites. The artwork on display will dazzle you.
