Halloween Peeps Treats

Hello blog friends!

Here is a quick Halloween craft that I did with my little niece.  She painted the lid of a small mason jar black. We punched a circle from scrap orange patterned paper and put it on the lid.  Filled the jar with Pumpkin Peeps. We sponged Memento Tangelo ink on a small tag and stamped  a cat from Rubbernecker's Cat Set 15621 with Memento Tuxedo Black.
Then layered it over a larger tag with pop dots.  I pulled out a purple eyelet, something I haven't used in eons, and attached it to the jar with some raffia.  We didn't want to make this a scary halloween project since my niece is only 3 years old. A quick and easy halloween craft for the kids! Little Stella had a hoot and couldn't wait to give it away as a present~Proud as Punch!
