Happy Thursday everyone!

This is a little treat box I made super quick this morning. I am off today because of the G20 Summit being held in Pittsburgh (my work is closed) so i thought I would do a little tutorial which I don't normally have a lot of time for.

I was in Michaels the other day and saw some cute pumpkin embellishments layered with a shimmery gold background that were $3.99! No way was I going to pay that much and I save my precious coupons for the big stuff. So, I made my own. I used the SPOOKY PUMPKIN stamp from LINDSEY'S STAMP STUFF. You can get this stamp along with a bunch of others in a set for only $5.00. And Lindsey has a super freebie on her BLOG to go along with it so make sure you get that freebie!

I printed out the image at about 3X3 inches, colored them up with my new Inktense pencils (which I love and will discuss later), and cut them out. I also cut out the eyes, nose and mouth with my exacto knife.

I cut the background layer out of super shiny, starry, sparkly prismatic paper.

And put them together with pop-dots. I also added a couple of punched dots of black to the inside of the last pumpkins eyes. It looks so much better in person, someday I will learn how to use my camera better.

For the treat box, I made a 5.5 inch square, scored it on all sides at 1.25 inches and cut into it as in the picture.

I added a little DP, some ribbon and filled it with some treats.

Check out the other DT's blogs for some great inspiration!
