A Candy Corn Gnome!

If you’ve been in any retail store or done any kind of crafting lately, you’ll see that GNOMES are all the rage. Stampin’ Up! has a fun and versatile new collection of GNOME products in our July-December Mini Catalog. The Storybook Gnomes Suite Collection features a fun year-round stamp set, adorable dies that allow you to cut a gnome (with separate hat, shoes, nose, and beard) using dies, and really fun Designer Series Papers and Embellishments. I made a treat bag using the Gnomes Dies and the Peekaboo Treat Bags:

The idea for the darling Candy Corn hat on Mr. Gnome came from Julie Gilson at Stampin’ Gala. Here’s a link: https://stampingala.com/?s=gnomes

I simply built the gnome by cutting out the different body parts, and then assembling. You could make a Christmas Gnome, a Birthday Gnome, anything you want to. The gnome’s beard also has a new product to this mini catalog: the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint. You apply it wet, and then heat with a heat tool until it puffs up.

I cut out a tag die from the Tailor Made Dies using the Sale-a-Bration Designer Paper. You could use ANY patterned paper, or just solid cardstock. I then stamped a small sentiment on a leaf tag, added two amber gems (one to cover the little hole on the tag), and then mounted the gnome and the leaf onto the tag.

I used some retired ribbon and wrapped it around the treat bag, then tied it, and tucked the tag underneath with a glue dot or two. The Peekaboo Treat Bags come in white or kraft color. They open and close with ziplock closure. They’re adorable, and just right for so many treats!

Here’s this cute collection:

Thanks again to Julie Gilson at Stampin’ Gala — she’s a true artist!
