Mini Pizza Box Halloween Treat

The design for this adorable box is based on a sample from page 52 of the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog!  The end result is very, very similar to the sample in the catalog, so I can’t take full credit for the design, although I did make a few slight changes!  Here is the original:

As you can see, I used a different design from the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper for my band.  I also used a scalloped edge on the square layer on top, as well as a different sentiment from the Spooky Cat stamp set.  I also kept the pointed ends from the Classic Label Punch on the sentiment piece. I LOVED the little owl the way it was, so I kept that completely the same!  I filled these boxes with an assortment of Halloween candy that included 5-6 pieces of Twizzlers, Kit Kats, some minis, and more! This would definitely make a cute Halloween gift for a teacher, coworker, or friend or family member.  Here’s a close up of the owl:

I hope you like my project today!  Check back tomorrow for another fun Halloween project!  Only TWO days left til Halloween!

Halloween Treat Tubes

Looking for a quick, fun way to package up small treats?  Then Stampin’ Up’s treat tubes are the way to go!  I think I have a special love of these, as I used to be a middle school science teacher.  These would have been PERFECT for little treats for my students!  These little tubes measure about four inches long, are plastic, and come with cork stoppers. Each set includes 12 tubes and 12 stoppers.  Simply slip in your treat and tie on a cute tag with ribbon, twine, or metallic thread and they’re ready to be handed out!

For these, I cut a tag from the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper using the Everyday Label Punch.  The Jack O Lantern was cut from the DSP with the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits.  The Happy Halloween greeting is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set, and was stamped in Basic Black and cut out with the Classic Label Punch.  I adhered the greeting to the tag and trimmed the edges with Paper Snips, then adhered the Jack O Lantern.  I punched a small hole, threaded Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine through, and tied the tag to the tube.  Super easy and fun to make and give!

Hope you like them! I have just a few more Halloween projects to share with you!  I hope you’ll check back for tomorrow’s project!

Jack O Lantern Crew Halloween Card

This card was inspired by one that I saw on Pinterest, so I can’t take full credit for it!  Unfortunately, there was no identifying information as to who made the original, so I cannot give proper credit for the design.  I wish I could, as I love this card and would love to know who came up with the design!  I absolutely LOVE this little group of Jack O Lanterns!  Once again, the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper is the star of the show on this project.  The only stamping on this card is the face on the 4th Jack O Lantern.  Otherwise, everything else is pre-printed right onto the paper!  All of these little guys were cut using the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits dies, which perfectly cut the Jack O Lanterns on the Spooky Night Paper, as well as the pumpkins from the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set.  (The cutting dies are available as a bundle with the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set for a savings of 10%, or can be purchased separately as well!)  The witch hats were cut from a different design of the Spooky Night Paper, but were cut by hand with paper snips.  Finally, the card was embellished with some Black Rhinestone Jewels for a little added bling!

Thank you for visiting today!  Please check back tomorrow for a quick and easy Halloween treat holder!

All of the following products were used in the creation of this card:

Mini Coffee Cup Halloween Treat

Another hugely popular item at craft fairs and bazaars are these adorable mini coffee cups!  The cups hold only 4 ounces, so they are tiny!  To decorate these, I cut a piece of Spooky Night Designer Series paper to wrap around the front of the cup, and also cut a coordinating band of a different pattern from the same Spooky Night paper.  I attached the covering and the band to the cup using Fast Fuse adhesive.  I find that Fast Fuse is THE adhesive to use for gift packaging as it has such a strong hold!  The jack o lantern for the top was cut from the Spooky Night paper using the Patterned Pumpkin Thinlits.  I then used the Layering Circles dies to cut two circular layers for the lid, one in Basic Black, one in Very Vanilla.  I adhered everything with Snail adhesive and attached the whole thing to the top of the lid.  The tag was made with the Layering Ovals Framelits and the sentiment is from the September 2014 Paper Pumpkin Kit called “Bootiful Bags”.

I filled these with Werther’s Soft Caramels (YUM!).  Then popped on the lid, put it in cello bag, and attached the tag with black ribbon!  Super cute!  These were the first thing I sold out of at the event I did last week!

The cups are not an item that Stampin’ Up! sells, unfortunately.  I bought these from Amazon.  You can find them here.  And the matching lids here.

Hope you have a great day!  Please check back tomorrow for some more Halloween fun!

Spooky Cat Full Moon Halloween Card

Today’s Halloween project is a card that features a black cat silhouetted against a full moon.  This card was super easy to make!  I simply cut my layers, cut a yellow full moon using the Layering Circle Framelits dies and then cut the cat right out of the moon using the Cat Punch.  Since the top layer of the card is black, once the moon was adhered, it looks like you’ve got a black cat with the moon as a backdrop.  I just added a few simple embellishments and greeting and it’s done!  I also sponged a bit of Crushed Curry ink on the moon to give it a bit of a shadowed look!

This card was inspired by fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator Mary Deatherage.  Her original card is identical in layout to this one, just in different colors. The colors I chose for this version are Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Elegant Eggplant, and Tangerine Tango.

Please check back tomorrow for another fun Halloween project!

Halloween Nugget Tin

Nugget Tins are always a huge hit at any craft fair or vendor fair that I’ve done!  They’re just simply twelve Hershey’s Nuggets, each wrapped in a 1 x 3 inch strip of Designer Series Paper, and placed in a small, rectangular tin.  Since most of Stampin’ Up’s DSP has twelve different designs, you can do a whole set without any duplicates!  For this one, I used the Spooky Night DSP on the nuggets, as well as on the tag.  Once the nuggets were in the tin, I wrapped a 1-1/4 inch strip of DSP around it, as well as some ribbon, and the tag.

I used two stamps from the Spooky Cat stamp set to make the tag.  The background is one stamp, which I stamped in Basic Black ink and the Happy Halloween is a different stamp, which I stamped in Pumpkin Pie ink.  The Spooky Cat set is a photopolymer set, which makes it really easy to align different stamps perfectly without using a stamp positioner, as the stamps are completely clear!  I then cut the front layer, as well as the back with cutting dies from the Layering Ovals Framelits, and adhered them using Snail adhesive.  Then I just punched a hole, attached it to the tin with some coordinating ribbon, and embellished with a Black Rhinestone.  And the completed tin is good to go!

I’ve already had multiple requests to make these for Christmas!  While Stampin’ Up! does not sell the tins, they can be found on ebay (which is where I got these).  Time to stock up on more before my next fair!

Thank you or stopping by today!  Please check back tomorrow for another Halloween themed project!

Spooky Night Halloween Card #1

Here’s one of the cards I made for my vendor event!  Spooky Night Designer Series Paper is the basis of the design, with five different patterns used.  The only actual stamping on this card is the sentiment and the rat on the tree branch, which both come from the Spooky Cat stamp set.  The card is embellished with some Black Rhinestone Jewels under the sentiment, as well as a die cut bat on the piece with the tree branch and moon.  The bat is from the Seasonal Tags Framelits cutting dies set.

I’ll post another fun Halloween project tomorrow!  Hope you’ll stop by to check it out!

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!  🙂
