Halloween Clear Tiny Treats Boxes

I am participating in a Halloween Bingo event tonight as a Stampin’ Up! vendor!  It’s going to be a blast!  Although I will be there to promote Stampin’ Up!, I have been feverishly working to create some cute things to sell as well.  Since it is a Halloween themed event, I focused mainly on making Halloween items, though I did do a few Fall themed ones too!  I have a total of twelve different projects that I created over the past week or so.  And it just so happens that there are twelve days left until Halloween.  So my plan is to share one project per day with you from now until Halloween!

The first project is an assortment of tiny boxes filled with mini chocolate bars!  I used the Clear Tiny Treats boxes, decorated with a one inch strip of Spooky Night Designer Series Paper, as well as a coordinating bow made with the Bow Builder Punch.  This punch makes an absolutely PERFECT sized bow for these boxes!

The boxes themselves measure 2 x 2 x 2 inches, and perfectly fit ten mini chocolate bars.  (For these I used Hershey’s Miniatures.)  I used a 1 x 9 inch strip of DSP and wrapped it around the box and secured with Fast Fuse Adhesive.

I then made the bow with the Bow Builder Punch and attached it to the top of the box with Mini Glue Dots.  The sentiment on the tag comes from the Spooky Cat stamp set, and the tag itself was cut with a die from the Wood Crate Framelits cutting dies.

Is it bad that I hope they all don’t sell so I can keep a couple for myself?  🙂

Thanks for checking in today!  Please check back tomorrow for another fun Halloween project!

Halloween Vendor Event Sneak Peek

On October 20th, I will be participating in a Halloween Vendor Bingo!  It’s my first time attending as a vendor, although I have been as a guest, and it is a BLAST!  Guests pay $20 for a ticket and they get ten games of Bingo, dinner, and dessert.  There is also a cash bar available.  The bingo prizes are supplied by the vendors.  There are also raffle prizes and lots of SHOPPING!  I am super excited!

Although I will be there promoting Stampin’ Up!, I am also making some Halloween themed goodies to sell as well, so that everyone can see what can be done with Stampin’ Up’s products!

Here’s a sneak peek of a few things that I am working on.  I will share more in detail as the week goes on!  I’ve got a lot to do!  🙂

Mini Pizza Treat Box with Merry Little Christmas DSP

The new Mini Pizza Boxes make it so easy to make and give cute gifts this holiday season!  Just add a pretty piece of Designer Series Paper, some ribbon, a cute tag, and a bow, and you’re good to go!  This one was made using the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper, 3/8 inch Black Shimmer Ribbon, and the Merry Little Labels Bundle. The bow on top was made using the Bow Builder Punch.  I simply punched enough pieces to make four full bows, then layered them one on top of the other to make it fuller and rounder.  The center is finished with a Metal Rimmed Pearl.  These boxes are the perfect size for 3 x 3 note cards or tags, but are also food safe, so they can also be filled with yummy treats!

I hope you like my project today!  Thanks for checking in!

mini gift box made with the envelope punch board

This itty, bitty gift box was made using the Envelope Punch Board!  I never would have thought to use that board to make a BOX, but it was super easy, and you can adjust the size of the paper and score lines to make all different sizes!  This one is 2-3/8 x 2-3/8 x 1-3/8 inches in size, and is the absolute perfect size for party favors.  While I am not set up to do videos of my own just yet, there are many, many videos already out there that you can watch to learn how to do this if you’d like to make your own. Simply Google “Gift Box with Envelope Punch Board” and a bunch of different videos will pop up. You can easily make these for any occasion, simply by changing the paper!

To make this particular box, I started with a 6 x 6 inch square of Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper. I used the Envelope Punch Board to punch and score at both 2 and 4 inches all the way around the square.  Once that was done, I rounded all the corners using the reverse punch, which can be found right at the top of the board.  I then folded the paper on all of the score lines. There are a couple of places that you need to cut with scissors in order to fold the box correctly (this is where a video definitely helps!) Once the score lines were folded, I applied some Fast Fuse adhesive to keep the box together. Before closing it up, I put in a few Hershey Kisses, and then just folded the top flaps down and added a bit of adhesive to keep it closed. I wanted to keep the top of this box flat in order to wrap the ribbon around and use the mini bow on top, but there are many other ways to finish them instead. For instance, in the video I watched, small holes were punched in each flap that had ribbon threaded through. The ribbon was then tied a bow. Definitely check out Pinterest and/or Google for lots of examples of how these little boxes can be finished, and what they can be used for!

Other items used to finish this box include the Leaf Punch, Wood Words Bundle (for the sentiment and tag), and Silver Mini Sequin Trim.
