Pretty Little Studio: National Candy Corn Day

Wednesday, October 30, 2019

Hey, y'all!  Happy National Candy Corn Day!  I'm up, on the Pretty Little Studio blog this morning, sharing some sweet, simple, inexpensive, fall, gift ideas, highlighting a few goodies from the newest Indian Summer Collection.  Enjoy!
I adore these 4 oz. Mason jars ever so much!  They are perfect for special, little, "thank yous" or "thinking of yous" or "just becauses", which I tend to dispense in abundance.  So, it's super important that they don't break the bank.  These cuties fit the bill and fill easily with all kinds of goodies from buttons and sequins to fresh herbs and even candy corn, which happens to work out perfectly on just such a day as today.  Each jar was wrapped with lengths of Baker's Twine to be laced through personalized tags for gift giving.  The base for each came from last year's October/November 2018 Freebie with any purchase.  Melissa does such a good job putting these treasures together each month and making them something that you'll really enjoy.  These three jars happen to hold my last three tags from that particular package.  Let's take a look at each one up close and personal.  Shall we?
I started the first one by stapling a branch, Goodbye Summer Die-Cut tab to its left side and topping it with a Happy Place Die-Cut pot, nestled in amidst a trio of Happy Place and Vellum Leaves Die Cuts, as well as a handful of the Falling Leaves Sequin Mix.
The pot itself was then topped with a "thankful" October/November 2018 Freebie and a "SO GRATEFUL" Happy Place Die-Cut phrase, both of which were popped up with foam tape; before everything was splattered with Pure Black and Titanium White, acrylic paints.  A length of Baker's Twine completes the look.
The second one had a "grateful", Goodbye Summer Die-Cut tab stapled to the left side of the tag and was topped with a Happy Place Die-Cut pear, nestled in amidst a trio of Beautiful Colors and Vellum Leaves Die Cuts, as well as a Time Together Die-Cut floral cluster and handful of the Falling Leaves Sequin Mix.
The pear itself was then topped with a "together" October/November 2018 Freebie and a "friends forever" Goodbye Summer Die Cut, both of which were popped up with foam tape; before everything was splattered with Pure Black and Titanium White, acrylic paints.  A length of Baker's Twine completes the look once again.
The third and final one had an open, Goodbye Summer Die-Cut tab, which was filled in with a So Much Beauty Sticker, stapled to its left side.  It was then topped with a Happy Place Die-Cut kettle, nestled in amidst a trio of Time Together and Vellum Leaves Die Cuts, as well as a handful of the Falling Leaves Sequin Mix.
The kettle itself was then topped with a "celebrate" October/November 2018 Freebie and a "SPICE & ALL GOOD THINGS" Happy Place Die-Cut phrase, both of which were popped up with foam tape and anchored with a Pumpkin Spice Die-Cut blossom; before everything was splattered with Pure Black and Titanium White, acrylic paints.  A length of Baker's Twine completes the look one last time.
That wraps things up for today!  Thanks, as always, for humbling me with a visit!  Have a safe and blessed holiday season.  Hugs!
