The Holiday Catalog goes live tomorrow! Today I’m sharing another sneak peek. I CASEd this project right from page 51 of the catalog. It’s made using the Spooky Sweets bundle, the Takeout Thinlits Dies, and the Farmhouse Framelits Dies. 

CASE = copy and share everything OR copy and selectively edit


Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Gray Granite  card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ 

Stamped with the Spooky Sweets stamp set:

  • bats in Memento black ink onto a scrap of Gray Granite CS
  • sentiment in Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple green inks onto a scrap of Whisper White CS
  • NOTE: I colored the sentiment using Stampin’ Write Markers

Die Cut using the Takeout Thinlit Dies:

  • Takeout Box (2 pieces for one box) from the 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ Gray Granite CS
  • NOTE: You can get 2 boxes (4 pieces) from an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of CS

Flecked using a Stampin’ Write Marker:

  • the outsides of the 2 box pieces in Basic Black
  • NOTE: I later realized the sample in the catalog was stamped with the textured image from the Spooky Sweets stamp set in black ink. That’s probably easier, and neater, than flicking ink from a marker.

Die cut using the Farmhouse Framelits:

  • fence from a scrap of Basic Black CS

Punched using the Spooky Bat Punch:

  • bats

Punched using the 1-1/4″ Circle Punch:

  • sentiment

Assembled the box:

  • burnished the folds in the 2 box pieces with a Bone Folder
  • 2 box pieces glued together on the bottom and along two sides (Tear & Tape is also a good choice for this)
  • closed the top of the box (after putting treats inside)
  • used my fingers to bend pieces of the fence
  • fence glued onto the front of the box, and the ends trimmed away using Paper Snips
  • sentiment adhered onto the front of the box using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • one bat glued onto the sentiment, and the other bat glued onto the box
  • tied a piece of Granny Apple Green ribbon around the box and tied a bow
