Another Convention Swap - Halloween Treat holder

Here's another preview of items from the Holiday Catalog that's coming out August 1st. I'm participating in a small swap of 10 Halloween treat items, so this is my swap. I used Dollar Store mini containers and filled them with candy corn. I lined the lid with DSP and then topped it off with the rosette and belly band to add the pizazz! Who wouldn't want to find this at their Halloween party?
The supplies are: Summer Starfruit and Brushed Silver cardstock, (new) Witches Brew DSP, (new) Tags 4 You stamp set and matching Label Bracket punch, black heat embossing powder, heat gun, rhinestones and a glue gun with silicone mat to put it all together.
The trick to making a lot of rosettes is to score an entire sheet of DSP at the quarter inch intervals, then cut the one inch strips that you need to fold and glue.  So simple. I also used a one inch circle punch with scraps of basic black to glue a base to my rosette on the back side, then flipped it over on the silicone pad to hot glue the prepared tag.  I learned something the hard way - only touch the edges of the tag as you are pressing it to the hot glue on the rosette, otherwise the embossing powder will come off on your fingers due to the heat of the glue gun.  Luckily I learned the first time!
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look! Have a great day!
