Halloween Treats!

Good morning, hope you are having a great Friday! I am looking forward to this weekend because my hometown is having a annual Street Fair. This will include a parade, egg toss and games for the kids and fireworks! It will also mean that our family and my brothers families will get to spend some time together. The weather has cooled down and we should have a great weekend! However you didn't come here to hear about my weekend plans did you. I must tell you that when I got up this morning I fully intended to post about Christmas cards. I have been busy creating them all week and thought that would make for a great post, but after doing some blog visiting of my own, I decided I need to share a Halloween Treat container with you and what better way to make a small treat perfect for those Trick or Treaters that you may have or even school treats that with our Sixxiz Big Shot.
I made all three of these in a matter of minutes just because they are so darn cute and the Big Shot makes them so quick to make. No measuring or scoring. Just roll the card stock thru and fold on the prescored lines. The die that I used is Stampin'Up! Matchbox (114890) and I used Old Olive, Perfect Plum and Pumpkin Pie Card Stock. Cast-a-Spell Designer Series Paper (115677) was the perfect match to make the wrap around slide off piece. I used the Eat, Drink & Be Scary Stamp Set (111764) to make each of the tags. This is a great set because you can use our punches to cut out the stamped images. I love not having to cut out images. The top box I used markers to ink up the image and then stamped on Whisper White Card Stock. The punch I used was the Curly Label Punch (112208) and it is matted on the Movers & Shapers Curly Label Die (114506) cut out. I added a piece of Old Olive 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon (109054) around the middle to finish off the box.
On the second box I used the same markers to color the image and then punched it out with the Small Tag Punch (108264) and then layered that on Perfect Plum Card Stock punched out with the Tag Punch (105934), a little 1/4" Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon (111368) and box two was complete.
The last box is the simplest of all because I didn't want to take away from the Designer Series Paper, so I simply stamped the definition of Halloween in Black Staz-on on Whisper White Card Stock and cut out around it then sponged the edges with more Black Staz-on ink. If you have any questions about this project please let me know and I will be happy to help. They will fit a couple of fun size candy bars inside of them and since I didn't add ribbon around the ends all the kids have to do is slide the box out to get the goodies inside. I will be making more of these for the trick or treaters in our neighborhood.
Just a quick reminder that the $85 Demonstrator Promotion will soon be ending. If you would like more information about the fun advantages of a demonstrator be sure and contact me. Thank you for stopping by and have a great weekend. I will be back on Monday with more projects to show you! Tonya
