Trick-or-Treat Halloween Blog Hop

Hi! Welcome to the Team Stamp It Halloween Blog Hop!  You are sure to find tons of inspiration for Halloween Fright!

My project today is this adorable mini milk carton!

Halloween, Treat Holder, Mini Milk Carton, Stampin' Up!, SU! #stampitbloghop

Isn’t it adorable?  I love the Toil and Trouble Designer Series Paper – perfect for all your Halloween crafting!  In this project, I’ve paired the paper with the Seasonal Chums set in the Annual Catalog – don’t you love when you can use new products with existing ones already in your collection?

To make the Mini Milk Carton, you need a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/4″ piece of cardstock or Designer Series Paper.

  • Score on the 8 1/4″ side at 2″, 4″, 6″ and 8″.
  • Score on the 5 1/2″ side at 1 1/2″, 3 1/2″ and 5″.
  • Along the 5″ score line, make a tick mark at 1″ and 5″ along the 8 1/4″ side.
  • Use a ruler and a stylus to score diagonal lines between the 5″ and 3 1/2″ score lines from the 1″ tick mark to the lower left corner at the 3 1/2″ score line and the lower right corner at the 3 1/2″ score line.
  • Repeat above step for the 5″ tick mark.    See picture for clarity: (Dotted lines are score lines, solid lines are cut lines)

  • Cut off the lower right corner that is 1/4″ by 1 1/2″.  (Already removed in picture)
  • Create angle cuts on the top and bottom of the remaining part of the tab.
  • Cut up from the bottom to the 1 1/2″ score line at 2″, 4″ and 6″.
  • Fold on all score lines.
  • Place Tear & Tape along the tab and close the box.
  • Use Tear & Tape to seal the bottom.
  • Decorate as desired and use Baker’s Twine, Linen Thread or a Galvanized Clip to close the top of the box.

For the decorations, I used the pumpkins from Seasonal Chums.  It is stamped in Jet Black StaZon on Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  The stem is colored in Crumb Cake, the leaves in Old Olive and the face in Basic Black.

Here’s a closer view of the front and back:

On the sides, I die cut bats using the coordinating Seasonal Tag Framelits from Basic Black card stock and colored with Clear Wink of Stella:

Halloween, Seasonal Chums, Mini Milk Carton, Treat Holder, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #stampitbloghopI used one of the new Galvanized Clips to keep the top closed after filling with Halloween Treats such as Dove Milk Chocolate Caramels and Reese’s Peanutbutter Ghosts.   The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black ink on Crushed Curry cardstock and punched with the Classic Label punch.  Black solid Baker’s Twine ties the tag to the clip.

I just love how this turned out and will be making a few more to give out to family, friends and co-workers.

Toil & Trouble

Fun with the Cauldron Bubble bundle and Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper!

Halloween Treats, Cauldron Bubble, Toil & Trouble DSP, Stampin' Up!, SU!

This past week’s Tuesday with Teresa Facebook Live featured the Cauldron Bubble bundle and coordinating Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper to make these fun Diaper Fold treat pouches!

To make the holder, you need a 6″ x 6″ piece of Designer Series Paper!  And then you can embellish any way you choose!  I used the coordinating Cauldron Bubble Stamp set and dies to make these.  Did you know, the dies cut some of the images perfectly from the Designer Series Paper as well as the stamped images?  How cool is that!

Here’s the video showcasing this fold:

Throw Back Thursday – Halloween Style

Hi!  Today I am showcasing a treat pouch made using some retired Halloween Products.  I am working on some goodies for a craft fair and decided it would be good to use up some retired Designer Series Paper I had laying around.

Diaper Fold, Halloween Treat Pouch, Cookie Cutter Halloween, Stampin' Up! SU!

These little guys are from the Cookie Cutter Halloween Set from a year or two ago.  I loved this set – they are just adorable.  The diaper fold pouch uses a 6×6 piece of Designer Series Paper and is pretty easy to put together.  These little guys will hold a mini candy bar – perfect for giving coworkers, friends and neighbors.

Here’s a closer look:

Cookie Cutter Halloween, Stampin' Up!, Treat Pouch

I’ll be updating this pouch to current product on Sept 10th’s Facebook Live – where I’ll also show you how to make it!  Hope you’ll join me at 7:30pm EST over here.

I hope you enjoyed today’s little Throwback post.

Ok, on to today’s project:

Chocolates, Treat Holder, Valentines, Tabs for Everything, Stampin' Up!, SU!

This cute little box can hold 3 Mini-Ghiradelli squares or 4 Hershey Kisses or 2 Dove Hearts!   For this holder, I used the Melon Mambo Card Stock for my box and decorated with the Painted With Love Specialty Designer Paper.  The hearts and sentiment are from the Tabs for Everything Stamp set.

Here is how the box is made:

  1. Score an 8 1/2″ x 5″ piece of cardstock at 2″ and 3″ on the 5″ side.
  2. Score at 2 “, 4″, 6″  and 8″ on the 8 1/2” side.
  3. Scallop punch the panels between the 2″ and 4″ score lines and the 6″ and 8″ score lines.
  4. Cut off the 2 corners on the 1/2″ end.
  5. Cut up on the score lines on the top and bottom.
  6. Score the 2 scallop panels at 1″ from the top of the scallop.
  7. Fold on all score lines.
  8. Use Fast Fuse Adhesive to adhere the tab to form the box shape as well as on the bottom flap to seal the bottom.
  9. Use ribbon to hold the 2 scallop tops together.
  10. Decorate the sides with 3/4″ x 1 3/4″ mats.
  11. Add sentiment and fill box with goodies.

Here is a picture of the template:

Mini Ghiradelli Treat Box Template, Templates, Patterns, valentines, Treat Holder, Stampin' Up!, SU!

Valentine Treats – Day 2

Hi!  Did you try yesterday’s Treat Holder?  What did you think?

Back again today with another Valentine Treat holder for you!

Valentines, Chocolates, Painted Love, Scallop Topper, Stampin' Up!, SU!This treat holder is perfect for holding a single Lindt Chocolate or a few Hershey Kisses.  Just the perfect little treat for someone sweet!

Here are the directions to make this:

  1. Score an 8 1/2″ x 6″ piece of card stock at 2″ and 4″ on the 6″ side
  2. Score at 3″ and 5 1/2″ on the 8 1/2″ side.
  3. Cut off all 4 corners
  4. Using the Scallop Tag Topper punch, punch the two long ends.
  5. Make a small mark on the 2 short ends at 1 1/4″
  6. Score from this mark to the corners on both small sides like this:Your card stock should now look like this:Scallop Topped Treat Box, Stampin' Up!, Treat Holder, Valentines, Pattern, Template
  7. Fold on all Score lines.  Apply Tear & Tape to one triangular flap on the short side to adhere the back scallop flap.
  8. Use ribbon to tie the front scallop flap and close the box.
  9. Decorate as desired.

For my box, I used Melon Mambo for the base and decorated with Designer Series Paper from the Painted With Love Specialty pack.  These pieces measure 1 3/4″ x 2 1/4″.

I then used the small scallop circle punch from the Occasions Catalog and adhered with dimensionals a Gold Foil heart created with the Lots to Love framelits.   You could add a sentiment to go over the heart or above or below if you’d like.   The Ribbon is the Blushing Bride double stitched ribbon.

Pretty quick to put together if you are looking to mass produce a treat.  If you need treats that are not food, try small erasers or stickers for children or a piece of jewelry for someone special.   Little notes telling the recipient what you love about them would also be sweet to tuck inside.

You’ll find all supplies to make this box in my on-line store!  Use Hostess Code: AWRFCDQY when placing your order to receive FREE Glitter & Enamel Epoxy Shapes ($50 order prior to S/H and tax placed by Feb 10) and this tutorial:

First up, this easy-peasy Ribbon Pull-Up treat holder!

Fold and add Tear & Tape along the 1/2″ strip and along the bottom.

Adhere the side tab and then starting at the tab end, adhere the bottom.

                  

Use a bone folder to flatten the pouch.

Punch a hole (I used a 1/4″ retired Stampin’ Up! punch) in the center of the top and run a 14″ piece of ribbon through the holes.

 

 

Place treats in pouch – using the treats to push the ribbon down into the pouch.

Tie ribbon or use a piece of Baker’s Twine to tie the ribbon together and decorate the front as desired.

Lots of Love – Stamp It Blog Hop

Hi!  Welcome to the Team Stamp It Valentine’s Day Blog Hop!  Today is all about the love!  My project features the Painted with Love Suite.

Painted With Love, Valentines, Hearts, Stampin' Up!, SU!, StampItBlogHop

I am so happy with how my box and card turned out!  The box uses the Lots to Love Box Framelits!  So cool to get multiple projects from one die set!  The Designer paper for both projects is from the Painted with Love Specialty Paper – I love the gold foil touch to this paper!   My colors for both projects are Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry and Gold Foil.

For the card, I added a Basic Black mat behind the Designer Paper- I felt it helped make the card pop.  I used both the Layering Squares and Stitched Shapes Framelits to create the frame behind the heart.  While it is a little hard to see, there is gold thread behind the frame.  I wound the thread loosely around my spread fingers a few times then twisted it to make an 8 and taped it to the center of the card.  The frame is popped up with mini dimensionals.  I embossed the heart with one of the Petal Pair TIEFs.  The sentiment for the card is stamped in Melon Mambo ink.  I added two metallic enamel hearts to match the box.

Now, for the box!  The box itself is made using the Lots to Love Box Framelits.

Die cut 4 of the sides, remove the side tabs from 2 of them and then score 2″ from the bottom (the flat end) for each piece.

Next, remove the two little top tabs and the bottom tabs below your 2″ scoreline on the two pieces that still have tabs.

Place Tear & Tape on the back side of the remaining tabs:

Adhere tabs to side pieces and attach together:

Fold in the middle to attach the last tab to form the box.  Use Tear & Tape seal the bottom flaps.

For the sides, use Designer Series Paper mats that are 2 3/4 x 2 3/4″ square.

 

For the top, I used the 3rd largest Oval Framelit from the Layering Ovals bundle and cut in half to cover two of the top flaps.  You will also need a 2 3/4 x 1/2″ strip to cover the space between the flap score lines.

Fold in the top flaps like this:

Decorate as desired!

A Little Treat Pouch

Hi!  Today I have a little treat pouch, also called a self-closing bag, for you!  This is another of the gifts that we made at the Gifts class earlier this month.

Treat Pouch, 3D, Gift, Merry Little Labels, Stampin' Up!, SU!

This features the Merry Little Label bundle in the Holiday Catalog.  This bundle, and the stamp set, are retiring on Jan 2nd.  If you haven’t gotten yours yet, just click on the product below to be taken to my store so you can order it before it is gone.

I used the Be Merry Designer Series Paper in the Annual Catalog for my pouch.  The directions to make this are as follows:

Large Box:  (fits 5 Lindt Truffles)

Designer Series Paper 6 x 8 1/2″

  1. Score at 1″ and 5″ on the 6″ side.
  2. Score at 4″ and 8″ on the 8 1/2″ side.
  3. Cut off the 1/2″ x 1″ corners and angle cut the center tab.
  4. Cut at 4″ score line to the 1″ score lines on the top and bottom.
  5. Cut on one side only (tab will be on your right) at 2″ and 6″ to the 1″ score line”
  6. Place the paper on top of the pierce mat.
  7. Using a stylus and a ruler, score a diagonal line from the left hand side of the paper at the 5″ score line to the 2″ cut line on top and from the 2″ cut line  to the 4″ cut line on the bottom.
  8. Then make diagonal scores from the bottom 4″ cut line to the top 6″ cut line and from the top 6″ cut line to the bottom 8″ score line (right edge  by tab).
  9. See picture below – the score lines are dotted, the cut lines are solid.
  10. Fold on all score lines.
  11. Use Tear and Tape on the tab and fold on 4″ score line to adhere the tab in place.
  12. Use tear and tape on two opposite tabs to form the bottom of the box.
  13. Decorate as desired.

Once you have made a few, they go pretty quick and are a great little treat for the postman, neighbor, co-worker or friend.   If you are hosting Christmas dinner, you could even make one for each place setting.

Halloween Treats

Hi!  How are you today?  I hope doing well!  Today I have a little holder to share with you!  I saw these adorable holders designed by Kelly Acheson – here is a link to her video.  Had to give it a try for Halloween.

Seasonal Chums, Pumpkins, Cats, Spooky Cat, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Treat Holders, Hershey Nugget, Halloween

Are these not the cutest?  Here is the back side of the pumpkin:

Seasonal Chums, Halloween, Treat Holder, Pumpkins, Stampin' Up!, SU!

These little guys hold 6 nuggets each!  I made a bunch of these to sell at a craft fair – I can’t wait to see how they do!

The pumpkins are stamped in Basic Black Archival ink on Pumpkin Pie card stock.  I colored the leaves with an Old Olive marker and the faces with a Basic Black marker.   The cat is actually just punched from the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper!  No stamping needed!  The moon behind the cat is a 2 1/4″ circle of Daffodil Delight.  The Designer Series Paper on both boxes is also from the Spooky Night pack and is 1/2″ by 8 3/4″ long.

I used Tear & Tape to assemble my holder.
