I created them to coordinate perfectly with the FREE 2010 Phantom Pumpkin Kit I shared with you last week...

What you'll need:
mini Reese's peanut butter cups
1" circle punch
double-stick tape

Have fun getting creative - I hope you enjoy this simple treat idea!!

KEEPING IT REAL
I had originally planned on doing the adorable hershey kiss labels I've seen from Posh Pixels.
And I DID create them...
And I DID have J purchase 5 bags of hershey kisses...
And I WAS frustrated running around searching for a .75" circle punch yesterday...
and I DID have to skip going to the printer like I had planned since I could never find the .75" punch to match the
printables I'd saved on the jump drive I had with me...
and so I then had to go find candy that would accommodate a 1" circle punch I knew I had at home...
and then I DID have to come back home and recreate the circles to accommodate that 1" circle punch...
and then...
after dinner...
since the ink in my printer is really low...
I DID have to run up the print shop to have my new printables printed.
But even after all of that...
we DID execute our "Operation Phantom Pumpkin" successfully!!
Phew...
everything DID come together in the end. *wink*
And so you see...
something SO simple can get super-complicated when you don't have the right tools...
OR...
maybe it was just that I didn't plan very well?
shhhh....

I love those little stickers for the peanut butter cups! Too bad they still wouldn't keep me from eating handfuls and handfuls ...

Happy Halloween!

Catching up on your blog posts and love these little printables you shared! They are Absolutely Adorable. I almost want to do the Phantom Pumpkin thing next year just to put these cute and colorful labels on some Reeces.

I've downloaded your file and will save for the future - even if just to share with a coworker, they will be loved. Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us non-creative folks. *wink*

Happy Halloween!!
