Pumpkin Kiss Tents

I have a really cute Halloween treat for you to make today!  I saw this on Qbee's and knew this was what I would make for one of the Halloween treats I make for my daughter to take to the Wellness Center.  The nice thing was that I had all the supplies I needed to make them as well - which doesn't always happen.  She has a video on the how-tos but here are some pictures I took along the way.

First, I made the little black tents.  I usually make about 50 of each treats, so I knew I would make these in steps.

The next thing I did was use my SU Stamp Set Howl-o-ween to stamp my pumpkins in Pumpkin Pie ink on the same paper.  Then I used my SU Boo to You Framelits Dies, cut them out and colored in the little faces with a black marker.  At this point I realized that instead of making 50 pumpkins, I needed 100 to make the little tents!!!! LOL!!  Well, I was committed and put the call in for help to the Pansy Patch.  We got them all done in record time much to my surprise.

Yesterday, it was pouring rain here so it gave me an opportunity to glue the pumpkins together and make the beginnings of the tent.

OMG!  They looked so cute!  I then put in the candy kiss in the bottom tent (while rewarding myself with a few for doing such a good job) and glued the top tent to the bottom one.

Here is a picture of how they group turned turned out.

These actually didn't take as long as I thought they would considering I made 50 of them.  The longest part was cutting them out with the framelits as I had to do one at a time.  I loved how they turned out and am now working on making another little treat.  Everyone here loves Halloween!!!

Hope you enjoy your weekend and it won't be a washout.  Rachel has her Home Coming dance tonight which had to be moved inside from the pavilion due to the weather, but I'm sure they will have a good time.

Thank for stopping by,
Nancy, Rachel & Sarah

Wow, these really are super cute! I can't imagine cutting 100 of those pumpkins one at a time. I don't know if I have the stick-to-itiveness. They turned out absolutely darling and I know they'll be a huge hit at the wellness center.

If you hi-light Qbees above, she has a great video on how to put together these little tents together. When completed they measure 1" x 1 1/2". They are really cute!
