Pin It Now! I'm fixin' up a batch of these sweet treats for my card club girls...

They're made using cello treat bags in the Holiday Mini, only $2.50 for a pkg of 50. You could make these all day long & never run out of clever ideas for toppers! (product #124134)

For this one, here's what I did...
Punched 2 lg scallop circles
Punched 1 XL circle punch & ran thru Big Shot with spider web embossing folder
Stamped witch image from Out On A Limb in Holiday Mini with Basic Black
Colored in with several pale Stampin' Write Markers (Wisteria Wonder, Certainly Celery, Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red for cheeks)
*Carefully* cut out her legs, & skim around them with black marker to hide the white cut marks
Using the 1-3/8" circle punch, stick the witch image into the punch, legs first, till her two hands line up with the sides at the bottom third of the punch. Make sure her legs are pulled out of the punch (your punch is upside down so you can see what you're doing) and punch her out. It'll look like she's sitting with a moon as her backdrop.

Sponge the "moon" in Daffodil Delight, edge with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint.
Create a mist bottle of Champagne Mist using 30/70 Shimmer Paint to Alcohol. Spritz all the black pieces. The shimmer is amazing!
Piece it all together as shown, tying a bit of 1/4" taffeta ribbon under the moon, so she has something to sit on ;o)
I use Sticky Strip to adhere the scallops to the cello bag. No fumes to affect the candies!

Oh, don't forget her bling! She's a diva, after all. I used black Galaxy Glitter applied with the tiniest paintbrush & 2-way glue to the hat, dress & shoes. Then a couple of basic rhinestones.

Have a blessed & creative day! Erika. www.erikaclark.stampinup.net
