Packaging for a Morning Tea Treat

I was inspired by the latest NZSU challenge based on the clever packaging idea that Donna Calley had on her blog, and especially loved that beachy theme that Donna had used.  I decided it could be a fun way to package up some muffins for a special morning tea treat for the teachers (except I don't think they call it 'morning tea'!) and went with a northern hemisphere autumny look instead.
Introducing the stunt muffin:

Since we haven't baked the actual muffins yet, and it is still a few days before we need them anyway, we decided that a nice piece of screwed up newspaper would double nicely as a stunt muffin - for blogging purposes anyway!

This pacakaging was a little shorter and wider than the original, to make room for a muffin without it being reduced to crumbs.  To fancy up that really rust card a bit I stamped it with one of the stamps from the 'Lovely as a Tree' stamp set - with a touch of old olive ink along with the rust ink.  The image on the tag is from the 'Window Dressing' hostess set.

Surely that has to be the best dressed stunt muffin in town!
