Inky Inspiration

Today I have a quick and easy project to share with you. Quick and easy projects are the best!  And they definitely come in handy when I need to make goodies for my kiddos and their 54 classmates.

Here's a Halloween / Fall inspired candy holder.
I used some patterned paper scraps with Fall colors and then added Lili to the front.  Then I wrapped some striped twine around a few times to finish it off.
There are so many great challenges this week will Fall inspiration.  You should definitely check them out and play along!
The Crafters Cafe - "brown, yellow, orange"
Cupcake Craft - "Halloween"
Creative Stamp Friends - "Autumn Colors"
Hooked on Crafts - "anything but a card"
The Pink Elephant - photo inspiration
The Ribbon Reel - photo inspiration
Bows and Berries - photo inspiration

If you use the following dimensions, you'll be able to get 4 of these babies out of one sheet of 8 1/2" 11" cardstock!
Cut a strip of cardstock to 2" x 10 1/4".
Score at 4" and fold.

If you wanted to put in something larger, like a candy bar, just increase the 2" width.
Be sure to hop on over to the Inky Impressions store and check out all of the cute images and great embellishments available.  You can also check out the Inky Inspiration and Inky Challenge blogs for all sorts of eye candy!  Thanks for visiting today.
