Today, I am sharing with you how to put together the cute pumpkins treats from the new Pumpkin Candy Capsule Kit. Watch the video below to see how it’s done:
In the video, I share how to assemble the cute pumpkin treats using the Pumpkin Candy Capsule Kit. Each pumpkin includes 2 felt leaves and a cork stem that are attached to the capsule using hot glue. You can use other adhesives if you wish, but I found that using hot glue was the most successful! I also share how to apply the vinyl face transfer stickers to the clear part of the capsule to add the perfect jack-o-lantern look!
Here’s a closer look at the Pumpkin Candy Capsules Kit:
The Pumpkin Candy Capsules Kit includes everything you need to create 12 pumpkin capsules, which are great for holding candy as well as other small goodies. Simply use hot glue or glue dots to adhere the leaves and cork stem to the plastic capsule (you can create your pumpkin oriented either direction), then choose one of three different vinyl face stickers to make a whole patch of adorable jack-o-lanterns!
My pumpkins are filled with orange Sixlets candy, but you could fill these treat containers with a number of other candies or small gifts (I am thinking about how cute and fun spider rings would be!) I topped my pumpkin off with a bit of burlap twine. You could add a tag if you wish too!
Here is more spooky and sweet inspiration from the TE Creative Team using the new Halloween release products…
Jill Hawkins whipped up a few cute Halloween and fall treats using the Pumpkin Candy Capsules Kit. She put together a few of the pumpkins and also created an acorn! She covered the lid with brown microbeads using decoupage glue and filled up the capsule with chocolate candies to complete the acorn look – so cute!
The Spooktacular stamp set (+ coordinating dies) features four super cute Halloween images and coordinating sentiments. These images are sized perfectly to use with our new Mini Slim Trifold concept and of course, will work for other types of projects too!
How adorable are these tags that Jen Shults created with the Spooktacular set? She cut her tag bases from Oreo cardstock using the Tag Stacklets 3 die collection and then added backgrounds that she created with her Blender Brushes and a few different stencils: Polka Party, Set the Scene Clouds Stencil Strips, and Spiderweb. Jen colored in the cute images from the Spooktacular set with liquid watercolors and added them to the tags. They are ready to go for attaching to Halloween treats!
Gayatri Murali used the Spooktacular set to create this sweet and spooky Mini Slim trifold card. Gayatri used the Mini Slim Stitched Stacklets to die cut the layered windows on her Toffee Mini Slim Trifold Card and that created a really cool shadowbox effect for her Halloween scene! Gayatri also added great background textures to her project using the Mini Slim – Spiderweb stencil and Linen Background stamp.
The new Farmhouse Wreath Cleary Crafty stamp set includes a wreath and different wreath filler options including flowers, bats, stars, snowflakes, hearts, leaves, and berries. The coordinating Farmhouse Sentiments Clearly Crafty stamp set includes nine words designed to fit into the center of the wreath.
You are going to find yourself reaching for the new Linen Background stamp over and over! It’s designed to look like linen fabric and it’s perfect to add a distressed or farmhouse feel to your projects.
Here’s one last project to share for our Halloween release… and it isn’t for Halloween! Melody Rupple used the Farmhouse Wreath and Farmhouse Sentiments stamp sets to create a Christmas card. Both of these sets are wonderfully versatile and you will be able to use them for so many different occasions! Melody added the extra leaf image along with the berries from the Farmhouse Wreath set to create a rustic holiday wreath and embossed the ‘merry’ word from the Farmhouse Sentiments set into the center of the wreath in white. Her perfectly coordinated, rustic background is stamped with the new Linen Background stamp. Melody’s card is finished off with a few sentiments from the Simple Strips – Christmas stamp that are cut out with the coordinating Simple Strips die.
There you have it! I hope that you all enjoyed our Halloween release here at Taylored Expressions and all of the inspiration that we shared from our TE Creative Team Members.
