Caramel Apple Kit...PTI paint cans

Halloween is just around the corner, one of my favorite times of year. I love all the decorations, the costumes and the TREATS! The apples are sooooooo yummy this time of year so what could be better than caramel apples? Wouldn't teachers and friends LOVE a homemade caramel apple? But what about transporting caramel apples, not so easy right?

Well how about creating a caramel apple kit so that the recipient of your wonderful gift can be assembled with ease? By using Nichole's new set Spooky Sweets II, you can do just that! The images are awesome in this set but the sentiments are just as sweet! Who knew that one little sentiment that reads *caramel apples kit* could spark such fun ideas. I wanted to make a *Martha meets Vintage* looking kit and I think I accomplished just that....a fancy little kit with a hint of vintage, but very simple and elegant. I used a large clear paint can, available at Papertrey Ink, for my container. I added some fun ribbon from Jo Ann's to the handle of the can and added a *happy halloween*sentiment from the original Papertrey Spooky Sweets stamp set.

For the top of the paint can I used Spellbinders new Pinking Circle Die Templates and some regular Spellbinder's Circle Die Templates. Zoom in to view the gorgeous swirly circle image from the Spooky Sweets II set and the *caramel apples kit* sentiment. I added airbrushing with my Copic markers and airbrush sytem for some soft shading.

And inside my beautiful paint can are the caramel apple kit contents for a single serving caramel apple that can be cut up for a *no mess* snack.....or maybe enough to share with a friend. The kit includes a beautiful Fuji apple...I love the warm color of that variety...a single serving of caramel dip and a little Papertrey glassine sack filled with chopped pecans and closed up with a single black brad.

Imagine the delight on the face of someone who receives this special gift. You could also give them a sack full of refills...it could be their special afternoon treat.

I wanted to photograph my Halloween treat with some pretty backdrops, so it was the perfect time to get out a few Fall decorations. I've posted my two tiered wire centerpiece many times, decorated for many different seasons. I think for the beginning of Fall, fresh apples will look fabulous! And I got a head start too. It's a good thing! Enjoy!!
