2 Cute Ink - Apple Time

Hi friends - I hope you've had a great weekend! Our was...interesting. Let's just leave it at that. LOL

Welcome back to another super fun post and image from 2 Cute InkHeidi has the most adorable apple image - not just for Halloween - it can be used for anything; cover it in sprinkles, color it to match an apple pie, etc. - you name it. But I wanted to try this amazing recipe I found HERE; Heidi's apple spurred me on to do just that using a Halloween theme - as if the apples were dipped in caramel. Yeah, caramel and apples - you had me at YUM!!

I printed the images and cut them out with MFT's Blueprint Tags, then colored with Copics. I cut a black piece for the back side of the tag - to hide all that coloring; and of course, another spot to decorate! :D I added glossy accents to the top of the apple and a few sprinkles on each tag.

5 little tags

I kept the tags pretty simple, adding googly eyes for fun. :D I sadly could not find any 1/2 pint jars, but these little containers worked just fine; wrapped it all up in some pretty packaging and ta-da, a tasty little treat for my coworkers. LOVE the heath bits on top of the layers of cream cheese and caramel - tasty!!

Thanks for popping in; be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has created!
