Stampin’ Up! Coming Home for Halloween Treat Box

I am having so much fun with the Coming Home Bundle. It is very versatile for general cards as well as a variety of holidays. Here’s a cute Halloween Treat Box inspired by Dena Rekow at The Creativity Cave. It will hold 3 stacked Hersey Nuggets. Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Whisper White Cardstock: 5″ x 8″
  • Pumpkin Pie Cardstock: Scrap for Trio of Tags pumpkins die
  • Pumpkin Pie Designer Series Paper: 1″ x 5 1/2″

The Creating

  • With Tuxedo Black Ink, stamp 2 houses and 2 trees from the Coming Home Stamp Set. Cut with the coordinating Home Together Dies.
  • Die cut 2 house dies from Whisper White Cardstock. These will hide the coloring bleed through on the back side of the stamped houses. Trim 1/16″ of an inch from the bottom of each.
  • Die cut the pumpkin die from Trio of Tags Dies from a scrap of Pumpkin Pie Cardstock.
  • Use Stampin’ Blends to Color the houses: Basic Black Light and Dark (house), Smokey Slate Light (windows), and Blackberry Bliss Dark (door).
  • Cut a 2 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Whisper White, score at 1/2″ on the 2 1/4″ sides and 1 1/2″ on the 4 1/4″ sides. Cut the score lines on the long side up to the intersecting score line as below.
  • Apply a strip of Tear & Tape along the center cut tabs. Fold in the outer sections. Apply Tear & Tape to the outside of these edges and attach the colored house die cuts to form your box. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the white houses to the back of the colored houses to hide the box seams and the color bleed through.
  • Apply half Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back for the tree and pumpkin die cuts and apply to the house fronts on each side.
  • Wrap the DSP around 3 Hersey Nuggests and secure in place with Tear & Tape. Tie the Black and White Baker’s Twine from Playful Pets Trim around the center. So cute!

Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Treat Box

Yesterday, I received a new stamp bundle in the mail and, of course, I couldn’t wait to make something with it. Tonight’s project features the Celebration Tidings Bundle which includes the Celebration Tidings Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Celebrations Labels Dies at a 10% Discount. Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Basic Black Cardstock: 4 1/2″ x 6 3/4″ and the largest label die
  • Whisper White Cardstock: Second largest label die and a small scrap

The Creating

  • Score the Basic Black Cardstock at 1 1/2″ on each side. Fold and crease with Bone Folder.
  • Use Paper Snips to snip the score marks on the long side up to the intersecting score mark.
  • Put Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the back side of the four cut corners and bring to the inside to adhere to the sides to make the box.
  • Cut the two die cut labels in half with the Paper Trimmer. On the Whisper White halves add the stamping in Tuxedo Black Ink. Tip: Since there are two sides with matching designs, I used my Stamparatus for twice the speed. Add Wink of Stella to the spider web.
  • Stamp 2 spiders on Whisper White scrap, fussy cut and add a Stampin’ Dimensional to the back.
  • Use the Dark Pumpkin Stampin’ Blend to add color to the Whisper White Crinkle Seam Binding Ribbon. This is so easy, you only have to do one side and it dries quickly. It also makes the ribbon a little stiffer which eases the tying and make the bow stand up pretty.
  • Tie the colored ribbon around the Whisper White half labels. Tip: Ever feel like you need extra hands when tying a ribbon around a layer? I use my Stamparatus and magnet to hold the label in place while I tie the bow. Adhere the labels to the Basic Black halves with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  • Put adhesive on the long side of the black box and place the label layer on top lining up the bottom and side edges.
  • Place your spiders and add the candy. The bag I used was left over from a previous project and measured 4″ x 6″. I am going to order the Mosaic Gusseted Cellophane Bags (linked below). It will be a perfect fit and the black and white design will look good for multiple holidays. I tied the top of the bag with the Black and White Bakers Twine from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack.

I filled my treat with Candy Corn because it is one of my favs. On our last Team Meeting I discovered there are folks who don’t like Candy Corn…what!? Maybe they haven’t had Brach’s with Honey. I didn’t tell them I had just bought a 5 lb bag at Sam’s (blush). How about you? Love it or don’t? Let me know in the comments below.

Stampin’ Up! Come Together Treat Boxes

Good things come in small packages! These Little House Treat Boxes featured on page 26 of the new August-December 2020 Mini Catalog are no exception. They perfectly hold two Hersey Nuggets and would make a great party favor, a special treat by a dinner plate or on a pillow.

You’ll need 2 dies and a piece of 1 1/4″ x 2 1/2″ piece of cardstock for each box.

Score the cardstock at 1/8″ on each long end and 3/4″ on each short end. Burnish the folds with a bone folder. Snip the score lines on the long edge up to the intersecting score line.

I applied a dot of glue to each corner and folded in and then along the long edges to apply the house. I squared it up with my fingers and put my A block inside to apply pressure on the seam until it dried. Repeat for the other side.

Nothing left to do but put in your goodies and tie with some ribbon if you’d like.
