Candy Corn & Paper Piecing Mashup

A sure sign of fall isn't the falling leaves or cooler temperatures...it's the CANDY! Remember when you could ONLY get candy corn in Autumn and Peeps at Easter? That was before they started making pastel corn for Easter and Peeps ghosts for Halloween...ah, the good old days...

I've been thinking about tags lately, so this popped into my head when I saw the Friday Mashup challenge (mashing up a fall food theme and paper piercing, FM128) and the Freshly Made Sketch (FMS104) this week:


The paper piercing was inspired by Patty B (but on a smaller version of hers). Here's how I made the candy corn:



So there's a sweet treat double whammy (or is it a triple?) for you today!

This is adorable!! My 19 yr old son LOVES candy corn, but only the Halloween kind. He just bought a ton of it from Target. This is such a great gift, I'll have to remember it!

Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Friday Mashup!
