Counterfeit Kit: Candy Inspiration Challenge



In honor of Halloween, one of the challenges over at Counterfeit Kit this month was to use candy to inspire your project. I chose my favorite candy - Junior Mints! As I mentioned in an earlier post, I have no Halloween pictures, but as I was digging through a box of old photos, I found one of me from high school. I honestly didn't remember it being taken, but I remember the costume. For dress up day at school, I decided to go as a Christmas tree. It is ok for you to laugh at this photo... I haven't stopped laughing since I found it.

I took inspiration from the mint box and used a circle punch for the black border. I also tried to use papers with circles and traced the outline of my title with a white pen. Now that I'm craving Junior Mints, I'm off to go by some!

  6. This is a great interpretation of the challenge! And your costume is adorable! I once went as a tea bag - the 'tea' was moss and I left a trail wherever I went! I guess we all have our past costumes that make us chuckle!
