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.

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

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

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!

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:

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:

Time for Valentines

Hi!  Today I am kicking off 3 Days of Valentine Treat Holders!

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

Valentines, Love, Treat Holder, Lots to Love, Painted Love, Stampin' Up!, SU!It is amazing how quick and easy this little treat holder is to make.  All you need is a 4×6 piece of Designer Series paper, a hole punch and ribbon!  If you have a definitive pattern to your paper, you want the length to be 6″ and the height 4″.  For my holder, I used the Painted Love Specialty Designer Series Paper found in the Occasions Catalog.

Score your 4×6″ piece of paper at 1/2″ along the 6″ side.

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.

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:

Designer Series Paper 6 x 8 1/2″

  1. Score at 1″ and 5″ on the 6″ side.

  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.

A Snowman Treat

Hi!  Today I have an adorable little snowman to share with you.  We will be making these at tomorrow night’s Gifts Class!  I am super excited for my last class of the year!

Christmas, Gift Bag, Snowman, Gift Bag Punch Board, Punches, Stampin' Up!, SU!

Isn’t he just adorable?  The box  is made with the Thick Whisper White card stock and the Gift Bag punch board.  I did a small size – and started with a 4 1/4″ x 10″ piece and followed the directions on the punch board for making the small board.  I did not punch the holes – as  I was not planning on adding handles.

The mouth is punched from the Cookie Cutter builder punch and eyes are punched with the 1/2″ circle punches.  The nose was hand cut from Pumpkin Pie card stock.  A White Chalk Marker was used for the eyes.

The hat itself uses two retired punches.  The holly on the hat is created with the Holly Builder punch.  Watercolor pencils were used to draw the lines on the leaves and on the nose.  A piece of Real Red cardstock was used for the band on the hat.

Here are the contents in the bag:

Gifts, Christmas, Treat Holder, Gift Bag Punch Board, Punches, Stampin' Up!, SU!

A pack of tissues, a lip balm and a mini hand sanitizer.   This would make a cute gift for coworkers and neighbors or even kids.  They are pretty quick to make as well.   You could also switch out the personal care items and fill with chocolates or a few coffee pods and a gift card.

If you don’t have the punches for the face, you could stamp a face using the Work of Art stamp set similar to what is seen on this card.

I hope you enjoyed today’s post!  Leave a comment if you did!  I’d love to hear from you!

Witchy Treat

Hi!  How are you today?  I am doing fabulous!  I had so much fun last night doing the Holiday Catalog Party on Facebook – hoping those of you that joined me, had fun, too!

Today, I have an adorable Treat Tube holder to share.  The idea came from BJ Peters is so easy to make!  We will be making these at the September 30 Stamp Buffet!

Halloween, Treat Holder, Spooky Cat, Witch, Stampin' Up!, SU!

The hat is stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink (stamped off on scrap once).  The buckle is colored with Crushed Curry marker and then the entire hat is colored with the clear Wink of Stella glitter pen (which doesn’t really show in this picture).

To make the holder, simply score a 4x 7 7/8″ piece of cardstock at 3″, 3 5/8″, and 4 1/4″ along the 7 7/8″ edge.  Then cut between the score lines at 1 5/8″ and 2 3/8″ along the 4″ edge.  This creates the little holder for the tube. Place adhesive between the second and third score lines outside the cut lines.

Here’s a picture showing the score lines, cut lines, and adhesive placement.

Such a cute way to pass out Halloween treats this year!

I am hosting a Stamp Buffet on Saturday, Sept 30 – three sessions 10am-Noon, 1pm-3pm, 4pm-6pm EST.  If you are interested, please contact me and I’ll be happy to send you more details!
