Halloween Broom Treat
I've seen lots of brooms done in many ways, but this is my take on this fun Halloween treat idea.
The top is made with the Tags 4 You bundle (stamp set and punch). Basic Black ink on Pumpkin Pie cardstock.
The broom bristles are made with a strip of Crushed Curry cardstock that I sponged with Soft Suede ink. At about 1/8" or so intervals, cut along the long side of the strip to about 1/4" from the top (so that it all stays together). Roll it around the sucker stick, adhering periodically with Sticky Strip. Run a line of Tombo glue around the top of the Crushed Curry (where it's solid) and wrap with Linen Thread.
The size of the Crushed Curry cardstock will vary depending on what type of sucker is underneath. This one has a Tootsie Pop and the strip was 6" x 2 1/4".
