Spooky Treats

As you can see, I've had fun playing with my new Candy Wrapper Die to create some Halloween treats.  :-)  This die is a new one that can be found in the Holiday Mini Catalog.  This fun die is the perfect size to hold a small handful of candy or other small gift.  To give you an idea of the size---the overall width of the box is almost 4 1/2".  The 'box' part measures 2 1/8" by 1 3/8". 

There are a couple of things that I love about this die.  First, it is sized so that you can get two boxes out of one sheet of 8 1/2 by 11 card stock.  Also, other than the one strip of adhesive you will need, the box actually holds itself together.  The ribbon on the ends are purely for show, they don't need to be there.  :-)  I did find THIS video by Barb Mulikin to have some helpful assembling hints. 

Starting with the top box, I used Rich Razzleberry for the box, and the stamp set Wicked Cool.  I stamped the spider webs on the box (before I assembled it!) and used the 1 3/4" by 7/8" Oval punch and Scallop Oval punch for the sentiment.  The ribbon on the ends is the 1/2" Raven Lace Trim--also found in the Holiday Mini Catalog

The next box is Pear Pizzazz and uses the Wicked Fun Specialty paper.  The sentiment is also from the set Wicked Cool, and the bat comes from the new Bitty Bat punch.  The ends are tied off with Basic Black grosgrain ribbon.  

The box on the bottom is Basic Gray.  I used the Spider Web Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, and we found at my Big Shot class that is best to fold along your score lines and then run your box through the Big Shot with your Embossing Folder.  The sentiment is from the stamp set Teeny Tiny Wishes, and is punched out using the Word Window Punch.  The 'spider' on the web is one of the Black Flourish Designer Jewels from the Holiday Mini, and again I used the Raven Lace Trim

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you've enjoyed these Halloween Treats!
