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 Froggy Tissue Box Cover for Halloween

The frogs are back! Today I’m sharing a tissue box cover made from the Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper, and yes, I  used the frogs again. I can’t help it; it’s my favorite design in the pack. This little cutie will sit in our downstairs bathroom until and during our Halloween party.

Here’s what I made:

Frogs! Just look at these fun little critters. Aren’t they a hoot? They make me smile.

Toil & Trouble DSP by Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

These measurements are for the tissues I have on hand, which are Kleenex brand. In the diagrams below, score along the dotted lines, and cut along the solid lines.

  • Basic Black card stock (CS) cut to 6-9/16″ x 6-9/16″, then scored 1″ from each edge 
  • NOTE: The lid piece is 6-1/2″, but adding 1/16″ helps make sure it will fit over the body of the cover nicely.
  • Tissue Box Cover Lid graphic by #stampcandy
  • Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 5-1/4″ x 9-1/2″, then scored at 4-1/2″ and 9″ (2 pieces)

Tissue Box Cover graphic by #stampcandy

Die cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits:

  • used 3 dies – I’ll call them small, medium, and large – the small should be about the size of the hole in the tissue box
  • a scrap of Whisper White CS cut using the medium die
  • a scrap of Granny Apple Green CS cut using the large die
  • centers cut from both the Whisper White and Granny Apple Green CS ovals, using the small die – this creates 2 oval frames
  • hole cut from the center of the Basic Black CS lid using the small die (fold in two of the sides so it will fit better through the Big Shot, and so it’s easier to line up the die.

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • one score line at each corner of the Basic Black CS lid, cut only 1″ to the first score line, to create a tab at each corner

Assembled the tissue box cover:

  • burnished the folds in all three large pieces with a Bone Folder
  • small flap of each DSP piece adhered onto the inside of the other DSP piece using Tear & Tape, to create a four sided box (with no top or bottom at this point) 
  • NOTE: looking at the graphic above, adhere A to A, and B to B
  • Granny Apple Green oval frame glued onto the top of the lid, lining up the inside edges of the holes
  • Whisper White oval frame glued onto the Granny Apple Green oval frame, lining the inside edges of the holes
  • corner tabs on the lid glued to the inside of the adjacent side, to create the four sides of the lid
  • lay down the lid, inside up, and insert the top of the DSP box *
  • put a small amount of glue inside the sides of the lid, between the DSP and the lid
  • lay the whole thing on one side at a time, pressing down on the inside to make sure the box and lid adhere well
  • slide down over a box of tissues

 

* You may notice in the photo above that I glued the lid onto the bottom of the DSP box. You can tell because the frogs are upside down. Oops. Here’s what I can do, if it bothers me enough

  • create another lid
  • turn over the cover, so the frogs are right side up, and drop the tissue box down into the lid
  • put the new lid on top – not gluing it to the DSP cover, so I can reuse it when the tissues run out

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 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
  • put treats in the box, then closed the top by tucking the top tabs through the slots on the end tabs
  • ribbon tied around the box and tied in a bow, then *notched the ends of the ribbon using Paper Snips
