Happy Friday, peeps! I have another little Halloween project for you today; it’s really quite easy and fun to do. This was the “bonus” project for my Halloween Treat stamp camp, and they all enjoyed it! It’s also perfect for Sandy’s Tic Tac Toe challenge at Stamp, Ink Paper:
I believe I got seven out of the nine, not too bad! I took a Tiny Treat Box and covered the sides and top with some Happy Haunting DSP. I stamped my kitty and pumpkin in Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black, then did some fussy cutting and adhered them together and put them on the front. This is one of my favorite vintage Halloween stamps; I am pretty sure it came from 100 Proof Press:
On the top of the box, I added a black glimmer paper “boo” from Boo to You framelits along with some black and orange sequins:
And the surprise is this little bat that pops up out of the box when you open it! It’s the bat from Cheer All Year, mounted on a thin strip of window sheet. His wings are curled inward, and the window sheet strip is mounted to the center bottom with a glue dot:
After you put your candy inside, tuck the bat down on top of the candy, as shown; the wings need to be curled enough to fit inside (a bone folder works well, as one of my customers told me!!!), then just fold the lid down and it’s ready for trick-or-treat night! I did trim the side flaps of the lid, but that was just my choice….you don’t have to do it!
I also stamped the sentiment from Cheer All Year on the inside lid as shown. These little 2” boxes are so much fun to make, I hope you’ll try one too!
We taught Cassidy how to play Sorry!, since I was a wee bit tired of Candyland! She did really well….and Grampy lost!
Enjoy your day!
