Saturday Blog Hop: Halloween Words

Hello! Thanks for joining us on the Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop! We have just one more week of Halloween projects for you. This week's theme was Halloween words. I decided to make a little treat box, since I don't really hand out cards on Halloween, but I love anything that can be a vehicle for candy! Are you a candy person or a chocolate person? I'm all about candy, so I might fill this little treat box with Sour Patch Kids or Nerds!

This cute paper comes from the Celebrate Everything Designer Series Paper that can be earned on any order over $200, as a host or a personal order. Here are the basic instructions for my little pillow box.

  1. Cut DSP to 4" x 7". Score at 3" and 6".

  2. On each panel, score a little line in the middle just to help you make the fold when you go to close the box.

  3. Trim the ends of the 1" flap to help it close better.

  4. Add some Stampin' SEAL+ to the flap and close box.

  5. Fold in each end.

Once the box is filled with goodies and you've closed it, wrap about 18" of twine around it and tie a knot. I punched the circle using my favourite (and new must have), Decorative Circle Punch. This is just the other side of the same patterned paper. Now for the Halloween words! Using the Alphabet Stamp Set you can create any fun saying you like, I chose 'Hey, Boo'. It is heat embossed in white on black cardstock and trimmed to size. The circle and the sentiment were all attached to the box with Stampin' Dimensionals.
