Halloween Ghirardelli Chocolate Purse

Good Tuesday morning Peeps!!!

Today I have another fun little treat holder to share with you. This one will hold a ghirardelli chocolate square or a few small 3 x 3 cards. I found the instructions for making this treat holder HERE!

I used some retired Halloween DS paper on this one, it was my first and I don't like to waste current paper, OK really I am just a hoarder, in case I make a mistake. I used a MS punch for the fence in basic black. The pumpkin is made with 1-1/4 inch circle punch. I punched three circles with pumpkin pie and sponged with Cajun Craze. The face is one of my much loved Peach Keen pumpkin faces stamp. I used some old olive card stock and the Scribbles Swirls and Little Leaves Sizzix dies for the swirl and the leaf. I punched another 1-1/4 inch circle with crushed curry card stock and sponged with Cajun Craze ink. The sentiment is stamped with black stazon and is from the Wicked Cool stamp set. I added some black grosgrain ribbon and old olive brads for the handle.

I didn't have any Ghirardelli chocolate here right now to show you in the box, but will be getting some on my next trip out so I can make a few more of these!

Well, that is all from me, but you will want to be sure and stop by tomorrow, because I am participating in a super fun Halloween Punch Art Blog Hop and I have a couple of really cute things to show you!

Thanks so much and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
