Trick of Treat


Personally, I prefer a Treat over a "trick!"  So, how about enjoying some cute eye candy with this special box…


Stampin' Up! Halloween Treat Box!


Big Shot Candy Wrapper DieIt's time for another Stampin' Up! Only Challenge.  The theme for this challenge is "treats."  Since Halloween is just around the corner, I opted to create a Halloween Treat Box.  This box can hold one large Candy Bar or two smaller Snack Size Candy Bars. 

To create the box, I used a technique I learned at the 2011 Stampin' Up! Convention.  For the longer box, you use the Bigz L Candy Wrapper Die but fold the cardstock about 1 5/8" then carefully layer the folded portion over the center of the die so it doesn't get cut.  After you run everything through the Big Shot and unfold the folded section, you'll have a longer Candy Wrapper.

The bats were stamped all over the black cardstock then I used the Tangerine Tango embossing powder to make the bats "pop" on this Spooky treat box.  I used basic black grosgrain ribbon to tie the ends.  All stamped images come from the Wicked Cool stamp set which I received as a free stamp set when I attended the 2010 Stampin' Up! Convention.
