Sweets & Treats Challenge

Hello my dear friends,

When I received my latest Paper Pumpkin kit I knew what I was getting, a Halloween kit with Halloween stamps. Only little detail is this mama does not celebrate Halloween. So what was I to do with my beautiful kit…love all the sequins..they are ORANGE!! Gotta love orange, plus the burlap and  such cute tags.

Well…here is my first non-Halloween project with this kit. Hope you find inspiration to use every bit of your kits EVEN if is for  a holiday you don't' particularly care much about. :D

Have fun creating and join us this month at our new Pumpkin Challenge here! Always bringing awesome ideas with Paper Pumpkin kits. :)

My daughters started embroidery last week. As beginners I started them with plastic canvases and yarn. 
They both loved this, but we didn't have a needle cushion for the big blunt needles we are using at the time so the burlap bag provided the perfect place.
I added polyester filler to one of the baggies.

Folded the top flap inside..

Made two knots wight the floss provided in the kit.

Then embellished each with a Spiral Flower cut from Craft Felt int he colors my girlies like.

Showing how to fold the Spiral Flower I cut with my Spiral Die (looove it!)
Start with the outside smaller end folding toward the inside.

Place a dab of hot glue on the bottom of all the layers.
I use the same technique with Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue when using card stock or paper Spiral Flowers. :)

Hold for a little bit as shown till dries.

Still holding..haha!

Now place a dab of hot glue on the bottom and put in place with the bit of sequins strip.

Ta-da! Here I used my Gold sequins from the SU catalog.

Here I used the orange provided with the kit…so sweet! 
My daughters absolutely like their needle cushions. 

What do you think of this non-Halloweeny idea?

Join us this month at My Pumpkin Challenge and check what my friend designers made today!
