Shopping Our Stash #124

Hello again!  It's Tuesday and that means it's time for a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash.  This week we want to see your Halloween or orange and black creation.  I have to admit we don't celebrate Halloween but I came up with a fun "treat" for my daughter to share with her friend's at youth group.
I really wanted to make one of these medallions to put on a lollipop.  I was going to get a great image from etsy but I kept remembering what we do at Shopping Our Stash.  We use our old stuff.  So I looked through my really old stamps and found a great pumpkin stamp.  The paper is all very old from my stash....because really, how often do we use orange paper?  Me?  Rarely!  So I was very glad to use up the sheets I had left!
I cut the strips 1 1/2" wide.  My paper scraps were all different sizes, but I attached enough strips together to measure about 24" long.  I scored the strips every 1/2", folded them, joined the ends, then  glued the medallions to a small white circle.  I added the pumpkin image to the front and glued the lollipop to the back.
I'm thinking these would be great in many different colors with different images for lots of occasions!  Too bad all 8 of them took several hours.  Not sure if I will make so many at one time again!
So, there you have it!  Won't you dig into your stash and share your creation with us this week?

I think that's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek!

Blessings & Hugs,
