Spooktacular Coffin Treat Box

Today’s project is a fun little treat box shaped like a coffin. Stampin’ Up!’s new Coffin Boxes come pre-cut and scored, so you only have to glue the corners to assemble them. There’s a window in the coffin lid so you can see its occupant, a vampire from the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper (DSP.) The coffin is lined with more of the DSP, and the spiders on top are cut from a Black Foil Sheet using the Wicked Dies.

Assembled the box:

  • burnished the folds in the box and lid with a Bone Folder

OSAT Blog Hop – Ghouls, Goblins, and Gourds

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop header

It’s time for the One Stamp at a Time blog hop for October. We’re featuring Halloweeny projects this month. I used the In the Woods Framelits Dies and the Christmas Staircase Thinlits Dies to create the card, which happens to be the invitation to our Halloween party this year. The front of the card is a homey Christmas scene, and the inside is the same scene in the dark, when the frightful creatures come out to play. I used the In the Woods dies along with the Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper to create the treat bag.

I used only one stamp on this invitation, the one for the garland, mainly because I didn’t have sentiment stamps that said exactly what I wanted it to say in the size I needed. So I printed the sentiments onto card stock (Whisper White and Smoky Slate) and cut them using the Layering Squares Framelits Dies. I used two stamps on the treat bag, from two different stamp sets.

My husband and I have a big Halloween party each year with lots of decorations, yummy food, and even a costume contest. As a matter of fact, right now our house is full of boxes of Halloween decorations, as well as Christmas decorations, because the theme of this year’s Halloween party is Christmas.

Most years, after the Halloween party, we just don’t have the energy to put up a Christmas tree. I was determined to have a tree this year, so that’s why the unusual Halloween theme. It’s been very interesting combining Christmas and Halloween. All the rats and bats will have red bows around their necks, or tiny Santa hats. And I was amazed to find so many Halloween ornaments, and even black trees!

If there are any days in October when I have no blog post, it’s because the Halloween party prep has taken its toll. I will attempt to post every day, but I know from past experience that sometimes I’m just too tired from hanging cobwebs and bats and such to concentrate on creating a post, or even a project to blog about. So please forgive any gaps in my posting in the next few weeks. Thank you!

Here’s what I made:

I forgot to take more photos during the assembly line process, but here are a few. I made 100 invitations!

100 Whisper White staircases:

With 200 hundred little stars to adhere with Mini Glue Dots (1 on the front and 1 on the inside of each card) I found it easier and quicker to attach the stars to the strip of Glue Dots, then pull them off one by one as I needed them.Halloween Christmas party invitation card, In the Woods and Christmas Staircase die sets, Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

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.)
