This is what I created for the hop today. I made a pumpkin trio centerpiece with some SUPER CUTE Peachy Keen Faces.



I created the stacked boxes using the SVG Cutting Files Snowman Trio Treat Box file. I just didn't add any of the snowman accessories. I cut each box out of a different orange color and inked all the edges. I stamped the faces using Peachy Keen's Moodies 2 1/4 inch face stamps and used a white gel pen to color in the eyes. 
I added some raffia in between the layers and some vines I created by cutting strip of paper and then curling them. The leaves are stamped in VersaMark ink using Peachy Keen's September 2012 SOTM set and I cut them out. I added them to the box tops with the vines. The stem on the top I created by cutting a 1 1/2 X 8 1/2 inch strip of Kraft paper and rolled it up and glued it closed. After the glue set, I used my scissors to cut into the top and rolled down the edges. I inked the stem edges and added a raffia twist to the stem. 

You're next stop in the hop is the talented BARB!
