Halloween Blog Hop- Day 3 ~*~ Candy Jar

Wow, I can't believe it's the last day of the blog hop. I have had so much fun! Thank you to all the ladies for making my first Blog Hop so easy and fun!!

For this project I decided to make a homework treat jar.
For every answer my kids get right without help in math and spelling they get a little treat. At this time of year it happens to be candy corn. But instead of the usual plastic mixing bowl to put the candy in I decided to alter an old peanut butter tub.

For the lid I cut the image from the Pumkin Carving cartridge and layered it on a yellow circle then added white stitching.

The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps. I taped off the "candy" part and stamped the "I want" then I washed the stamp and taped it off a again and stamped just the "candy" part. To make the candy shaped tag I just cut a rectangle at 1.50 in wide and punched all the corners with Martha Stewarts Optic Dot corner punch.
The kids love the candy corn and I love how it looks on the counter :)


Don't forget to leave a comment to be entered to win the candy. I'll be announcing the winner on Monday. :)

  5. What a neat idea as an incentive to learn. I may have to do one for my classroom and give out Halloween erasers instead of candy. Thanks.
