Peeping Pumpkins

I got this idea from a wonderful crafter, Christina Steeves, and thought these would be great fun to make for family! Click on her name to see what she made that inspired me!

I used Spookalicious and Sweet Goodies stamp sets for all images. They are all stamped using Noir PH ink.

I used white, brown, and orange cardstocks. The recipe card was made using my word processor on my computer.

The eyes of the characters on the recipe card and on the candy corn on the lid are colored with my Stardust Clear Gel Pen. This just has to be one of my favorite bling makers!!

I colored the corn with Prismacolor Pencils. Ok, but maybe markers would have been better to color the corn. I also used my Mega Circle Punch and Giga Scallop Circle Punch.

And, if you want the recipe, here it is!
1 quart-sized canning jar with lid and ring
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1 1/4 c. M&Ms
Package of Peeps candies

Place crumbs into the jar. Use a meat tenderizer to pack crumbs tightly into the bottom of the jar.
Place Peeps candies against the glass on all sides of the jar. Press lightly to create a well i nthe center of the jar.
Add brown sugar to the space in the center of the Peeps, pressing gently to pack.
Gently add the M&Ms to the top of the jar. Seal jar with lid and sealer ring.
Embellish jar.

So, enjoy! And let me know what you think!!
