The cute spooky-themed September 2022 Paper Pumpkin makes Hallowe’en treat giving a snap. This kit includes all you need to create 18 treat boxes (6 each of 3 designs) but the pieces can actually all be mixed and matched to allow you some extra creativity. These treat boxes are exactly the right size for 2 mini Halloween candy bars or a mini playdoh tub.
I actually need 21 treat boxes for my class, so I got two kits. I made 21 boxes and then used the extra bits to create some Halloween cards. The additional treat box bases I will use to make some treats for my Xmas table ( watch for these in another post). I can make my own box wrapper easily by cutting a piece of DSP or cardstock at 3″ X 8-1/8″, then score at 2-1/2″, 3-1/2″, 6″ and 7-1/8″. Here is the card I made in the video below.
And here is another card I created using one my extra box wrappers. The plaid design hides the score lines so well you can’t see them at all.
The plaid layer is 3″ X 4″. Then I used the Stylish Shapes dies to cut a vellum circle and the largest banner. I wrapped a piece of glitter washi tape across the front of the plaid layer and used the ghost and spider web from the kit. You could of course use a plaid DSP and stamp the ghost and spider web if you’ve used up all your pre-made bits. Here are the extra bits I used to make cards from this kit:
The box bases in this kit are simple to put together (once you know what you are doing!) Check out my video to see how to put them together – I show the process many times in the video ( the first time is clumsy because I did NOT know what I was doing – so move along and watch my second, third or fourth fold – much smoother).
