Inspiration Thursday

It's Thursday again! That means it's time for another Inspiration Challenge over on the UDI blog. In today's picture, I used the tin as my inspiration.

I found this little tin in the Target Dollar Spot last year right after Halloween. They were 25 cents each. I bought all of them. LOL I had planned to use them as decorations and centerpieces at Thanksgiving, but it just got too crazy. So I still have gobs of them hanging out just waiting to be loved. ;)

I stamped some of the images from Batty for You and punched them out with the 1 1/4" Circle punch. I layered those on a piece of Pumpkin Pie punched with the 1 3/8" Circle punch. Those pieces are then layered on a piece of Basic Black die-cut with the Big Shot and the small circle from the Scallop Circle #2 die. I used mini glue dots to adhere the images to the craft sticks. I used my paper shredder and a piece of Creepy Crawly DSP (retired) to make the shreds for my tin. I added some gingham ribbon to the sticks and the tin handle to finish off the project. I think I'll use it to decorate my desk in a couple weeks. :)

Have a terrific Thursday!
