Okay, onto my JUGS post! Today our JUGS team is being sponsored by Clear and Simple Stamps. We used their Halloween set called "Spooky Sweets". I decided to go completely against the grain and create something that did not look like a typical Halloween project, and this is what I came up with.I used the free Basket of Thanks template, and filled it with some saltwater taffy. The paper I used on the outside is actually a sneak peek of one of the digital paper packs I'm releasing on 1 September at MTME :] I printed it double sided with the pink Ga Ga for Gingham sheet. I stamped the Sweet Treats sentiment in SU Always Artichoke, and used two of the "star" stamps to create a pink (SU Pretty In Pink) background of sorts. I stamped "Got Candy" several times and punched them out using the same SU label punch that I used on the main sentiment. I also stamped them with the pink star images. Afterward, I adhered them to individual pieces of candy to make the presentation a little more personalized.
Wouldn't this be cute at a dinner party either as place settings or arranged around the room for guests to partake? Or, as a thank you "favor" for the guests to take home! I think it would be adorable :]
It was really quick putting this together...soooo simple! I punched some Couture Cardstock Blushing cs for the panel under the main sentiment (SU punch), add some pretty coordinating ribbon I stole from Lauren (sorry, I didn't write down the brand), added a paper rose, and adhered everything! Not much to it, but it sure is pretty.
So, now the challenge is on you! Create a template, any template, and remember, CSS offers free template downloads on their site, and post a direct link to your project on JUGS. We love to see your projects each week ♥
