Gimme Some Treats, Scarecrow!

Top of Altered Treat Container

Welcome to ABC Monday at Catch The Bug! If you aren't familiar with ABC Monday, you should be! LOL! ABC Stands for Anything But A Card! This is the day we inspire you by showing off a different kind of creation - Something other than a card.  There are some fabulous ABC creations, today, at Catch The Bug, so please come over and check us out - Let us Inspire You to get started on those handmade holiday gifts!

I made this cute little treat container, in fall colors.  Originally, this little glass jar came filled with paper flowers.  I saved the jar and recycled it to make this cute treat container! Cute, isn't it?! All papers used are from my stash. I've used the image Scarecrow - Pumpkin String from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with promarkers. I printed the image twice, fussy cutting the first one, to attach to the front of the jar, with foam mounting tape.  The second image, I punched with a circle punch and matted with a scalloped circle, to decorate the lid.  This makes a great gift idea and who doesn't love candy, right?!

What do you have, that you can recycle into a holiday gift this season?!
