Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!   Today is full of wonder, excitement, and anticipation.  It is the one time of the year we can get our exercise and eat candy.  

Today I am sharing with you a wonderful idea from Kimberly Smith.   (A little side story...)  Stampin'Up! offers us the opportunity to buy these kits that come once a month.   They are called Paper Pumpkins.  The kits contain cards, 3D items,  tags, etc.   You pay $22.99 a month and that includes shipping.   It's a nice way to create once a month in your PJs.   

This month we got little candy, treat holders.   They are so cute.   

Box comes with all the supplies you need...including stamps, ink, adhesive, and directions.   You can follow the instructions and create wonderful candy holders for trick or treaters.   AND, you can also use those supplies to create things "OUTSIDE THE BOX!"

Here is a card I made.  I just used the black cat, witches hat, and pumpkin.   I stamped the sentiment.   I Added rhinestone basic jewels and colored them with a Stampin' Blend Dark Blackberry Bliss marker.  This was really easy to do.  

This is the 'Trick or Treat' gift I will give the kids who knock on my door.  

I used the outside candy wrapper as the front part of the box.   I folded the score marks closest to the waves/riffles.  I also folded the score lines after the diamond shape side.   I added a piece of window sheet that was 2 1/2" x 5".   (Make sure it only goes from score line to score line.)

The sides look like this.

Here is what I am giving the kids.  

The bottom of the box is Mossy Meadow and it measures 7 3/8" x 4 7/8".   I scored at 1 1/4" on all 4 sides.   I cut on the score line of the long side of the box.   When you have 4 cut corners, you may want to mitre the edges.   Use tear tape or a strong adhesive to put the box together.   Make sure the box can slide in and out of the top.  Stamp your sentiment and put it on the box with a dimenstional.   

Any questions, please let me know!

Thank you for stopping by and please be safe, wear a mask, and have fun!
