Scallop Popcorn Boxes

I am thrilled to be sharing a very special recipe today as a part of  Pink Little Cake's "28 Days Of Sweet Halloween Ideas". Make sure you hop on over to Kathia's blog when you are finished here for my Mom's caramel corn recipe...it is SO good!

Yesterday I mentioned I have a new scalloped popcorn box...ta da...here it is! I am in love with this scalloped little box. It doesn't have to contain popcorn or caramel corn...it could be filled with candies, toys, gift cards etc. Can you imagine it with any of those goodies inside and all wrapped up pretty with cellophane and a bow and given as a gift!

I have also been able to make a matching parchment paper liner for this box, that you can slide inside. This way when you do use it for popcorn or cookies you will not get those nasty grease spots soaking through the paper.

For this Halloween box I designed my own striped cardstock and label. The spider is hand stamped, water colored  and given the sparkle treatment. Have I ever mentioned that I LOVE to water color! Anyway...these will be in my shop soon and of course I will create custom designs just for you!



On a completely different note, I have a little something to share. My husband found this article and emailed it to me, knowing how I would feel about it.  If you have been reading my blog for a while then you will remember my post about "copying" OR "stealing" and how I feel about it. This I think says it all!

“Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photos, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery—celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: ‘It’s not where you take things from—it’s where you take them to.” - Jim Jarmusch


As always...Hugs,
Pam
