Fright Night gum treat by Diane Zechman

Hello Ai friends and happy Thursday!
Is it too early to be thinking of Halloween?  I hope not!  I have a friend who loves Halloween so it would never be too early for her.  Today I am sharing a Halloween gum treat using a NEW clear set that is now appearing in your local AC Moore craft stores!  This set is called Fright Night (SC0735) and includes an owl, Frankenstein, and cat, PLUS a matching die to cut the images out!

I started with some packs of gum that have a sleeve and a piece that slides out with the gum inside individual "bubbles".  Then I measured and wrapped the packs with patterned paper.  Before adhering the paper, I wrapped it around and traced the half-circle openings.  I punched those out of the paper with a 3/4" circle punch.  Then the paper was secured with Scor-Tape.

The outside was decorated with my Copic colored and die cut images.  A cute sentiment from the set was heat embossed with white embossing powder onto a black cardstock strip.

On the inside, I used little glue dots to attach some die cut bats to each gum "bubble".  (Psst... the bat dies and the little pumpkin die on the front are a sneak peek and will be appearing in a stamp set in a few weeks!)  :)

I hope you liked this little treat project.  Have a great day and… happy stamping!
