Just a little bit "corny"

When I started figuring out prizes for my 300th post giveaway, my son had just discovered Candy Corn, and I had just discovered these fun baskets from the Pink Penguin. I knew I had lots of cream and white and orange in my scrap bin, so I decided to make baskets completely from scraps, and then add in some "candy corn" themed prizes.

On the left is Lazy Sister Sue's first prize - a FQ of candy corn fabric, 3 FQ's in candy corn shades and a bag of Brach's Candy Corn. Colleen's 2nd prize on the right is the same, but with only 1 FQ.

The baskets don't have the candy corn yellow in them - because all my yellows were either used up in the Summer Sunshine quilt, or were way too bright for the oranges I had.

These were held up in shipping due to the post office holiday for Columbus Day, but I hope to get them on their way later this week.

Enjoy -
...I should have included toothbrushes?
