A Treat...and a Tutorial!!

My first ever tutorial...I'm so excited!
Since it IS my first...
Disclaimer: this will not be perfect by any means! lol

I made a few thank you treats for some stamping friends of mine. :)

Let's get started, shall we?

Step 1 : Score a 4 x 6.5 pc. soft suede cardstock at 3.25 & fold
Step 2 : Place treat into small cello bag and fold over,
apply SNAIL adhesive to folded flap & put inside folded cardstock.

Step 3 : Tie treat folder closed with ribbon
(sorry about pic - the ribbon DOES match IRL)

Step 4 : Punch out 3 circles from pumpkin pie cardstock

Step 5 : Apply pumpkin pie ink to edges of punched circles with sponge daubers

Step 6 : Create a vine - wrap a thin strip of cardstock around small round object

Steps 7-9 : Adhere the 3 circles together to form a pumpkin
Stamp "thank you" on center
Add stems and vines

Step 10 : Mount pumpkins onto layers of cardstock with dimensionals

LAST STEP : Mount onto soft suede treat holder - voila!

The Small Print: ALL Stampin Up (except for Peanut Butter cup, lol)
Family Phrases

Base: 4 x 6.5 pc. cardstock (Soft Suede)
Other Cardstock: Old Olive, Confetti White, Pumpkin Pie, Always Artichoke
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede
Accessories: Ribbon (Soft Suede), 1.25" circle punch, Sponge dauber, SNAIL, Dimensionals, Small cello bags
Other: Reeses Peanut Butter Cup treat

I hope you enjoyed my first ever Tutorial! :)
