Toil & Trouble Halloween Treat Box

Today’s project is an adorable Halloween treat box made with a Mini Pizza Box, the Layering Squares Framelits Dies, Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper, and the Cauldron Bubble Bundle. the Cauldron Framelits Die actually cut images from the Toil & Trouble DSP! Easy peasy! The finishing touch on the treat box is 3 sequins from the Black Mini Sequin Trim.

Have you seen the Mini Pizza Boxes? The inside is coated so it keeps any oil from seeping through. (You know how the butter can come out of cookies and seep through the box? That won’t happen with these.)

Toil & Trouble Nugget Holder

Today I’ve used the Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper again (I gave the frogs a rest though) to make a fun Halloween treat bag of Hershey Nuggets in a 2″ x 8″ cello bag. You can put a few more nuggets in the bag, but I only had a few on hand. This is a super simple project, so you can make a lot of them for your Trick-or-Treaters, your coworkers, or anyone else who likes chocolate.

Here’s what I made:

It’s time for the OSAT Blog Hop for September! This month’s theme is “I Need a Hero.” I opted to make a CAS eclipse card using the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the Large Letters Framelits Dies.

The coordinating Tiny Treat Box is made with the same DSP, and with Burlap ribbon and Frames Elements wooden embellishments. You can give these to any hero in your life.

ICS Blog Hop – Passion for Punches

It’s time for the August edition of the Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop! This month our theme is Passion for Punches. I’ve decided to feature a brand new punch from the 2018 Holiday Catalog (which is now live!) It’s called the Sprig Punch and it’s part of the new Joyous Noel Suite on pages 28-29. You can buy it bundled with the Peaceful Noel stamp set to save 10%!

For some reason I keep calling this a Twig Punch instead of Sprig Punch. Even though “Sprig” makes more sense, once I get something wrong like that in my head, it’s hard to remember the right word. So if I missed correcting “Twig” anywhere in this post, know that I mean “Sprig.” 

 

Here’s what I made:

ICS Blog Hop August 2018, Passion for Punches, Sprig Punch, Peaceful Noel Bundle, Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

  • scored DSP along the long side at 4″, 6″, and 10″ 
  • scored DSP along the short side at 2″

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • cut away the two 2″ x 1-1/4″ sections from the DSP

Stamped with the Peaceful Noel stamp set:

  • sentiment in Merry Merlot ink onto a scrap of Shimmery White cardstock (CS)

Cut using the Sprig Punch:

  • 3 sprigs from a scrap of Tranquil Tide CS

Die cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits:

  • sentiment

Decorated the box:

  • DSP glued onto a Lustrous White Mini Gable Box
  • *excess pieces trimmed around the top flaps of the box using Paper Snips
  • folded in bottom flaps of box, first the long tab with two arms, then the two short sides, then tucked in the long flap with one arm

Spooky Sweets in a Takeout Box

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:

Stampin' Up! So Santa stamp set has Santa on a scooter - so cute! Handmade card made by Candy Ford of Stamp Candy #stampcandy

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
