Hi! Welcome to the Team Stamp It September Blog Hop! This month we are featuring Halloween projects! I am excited to share this little treat with you featuring products from the August-Dec Mini Catalog.
I know, you were probably expecting a candy holder, but I decided to go with something a little different. I’ll still be packaging up candy for the little ones, but thought some of my friends would appreciate these.
We’ll start with the Chapstick holder – this is a take on the one shown in August-December Mini Catalog on page 52. Since I didn’t have the Magic in the Night bundle, I changed it up a bit. My die cut is made using Stitched So Sweetly Dies. The Designer Series Paper is Magic in the Night. I only made one slit in the middle to hold the Chapstick since my die is a bit smaller than the one used in the catalog. The sentiment, tag and spider come from the Little Treats Bundle in the August-December Catalog. I used Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry Markers to color the sentiment. I did use the 1 1/2″ Mesh Ribbon to tie around the Chapstick – I love this ribbon – so fun and perfect for that spidery web. For the tag, tho, I went with the 3/8″ Glittered Organdy ribbon from the Annual Catalog.
Now, what is hiding inside the box on the left? Well, let’s open it and see!
Yes, tucked inside is a Pocket Bac hand sanitizer! How cute is this? And, let me tell you, very easy to make.
The box is Rich Razzleberry measuring 2 1/4″ by 10 1/2″. Score on the 10 1/2″ side at 2″, 3″, 6″, 7″, 9″ and 10″. Using the smallest Oval in the Stitched Shapes die set, cut a hole in between the 9″ and 10″ score lines.
It should look like this:
Fold on all the score lines with a bone folder to get crisp edges and then lay flat. Fold up on the 10″ score line (so it is covering part of the oval) and place a piece of Tear and Tape on this 1/2″ edge. Keeping this edge folded, fold up on the 7″ score line and adhere the tab to the back of the box. That’s all there is to it. Decorate the front as desired. You’ll slide the PocketBac in through the side and pop the top of it through the Oval. The two pieces of Designer Series paper covering the top and bottom measure 2″ x 1 3/4″. I used the same spider, tag and ribbon from the Chapstick to decorate the box. The tag is attached by placing dimensionals on the bottom of the box right below the lid – allowing you to tuck the lid behind the tag to keep it closed.
What do you think? I hope my friends like them!
