A Treat Just for You......{MCT Designers Challenge}

Good Morning and welcome to another
My Creative Time ~Designers Challenge!!!
Today's challenge is to use the photo below for your project...
remember for these challenges, you can use the colors, the picture or a combination of both for your projects as well as MCT stamps and dies.

For my project I used the popcorn as my inspiration and tied in the brown, green and gray colors to make this.....
It's always fun to make little gifts to give and of course decorate up a boring package and that is exactly what I did with a bag of microwave popcorn.
This was very simple to do and can me decorated to fit any occasion. So here is how I make this.
I took a piece of brown card stock and covered the bag of popcorn. Making a large belly band.
Next I tied a big hemp ribbon around the top (this holds the wrapping on as well~ just a little extra reinforcement in case your adhesive comes apart) A few enamel dots to embellish and then I moved on to create the tag.
I used the Just Tags die and cut both layers, one in the green pattern paper and the other in gray card stock. I stamped the sentiment up the side of the tag using the Fright Night Stamp set then put it aside while I stamped, cut and colored my adorable piece of popcorn.
Once his glossy accent eyes were dry, I popped him up onto the tag and attached everything to my project using some Trendy Twine!
