A Halloween Treat

I created this box for my make and take for my September workshops.  Using the Matchbox die made this project super easy!  My guests loved using the Big Shot to create this box.

I first had them cut the box bottom from Pumpkin Pie and the top out of Basic Black card stock.  I had them fold the crease lines to the top then they ran it through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.  They assembled the top then smooched it with Silver Smooch.  The tag is cut from the same die.  You get three different tags along with this die.  So versatile.

They stamped the spider web on the tag then stamped ‘have a Wicked halloween’ on Pumpkin Pie then punched with the 1″ circle.  To pop up the sentiment they used a Stampin’ Dimensional and adhered off center so you could see the spider web.

For an extra elegant touch I had them add the Black Satin ribbon with mini glue dots and voila! An easy treat box.  My workshop guests then filled it with Hershey kisses.  The box is so elegant you can give them to Halloween dinner guests.  Of course the possibilities are endless for this box and can be made to fit the different holidays.  Have fun creating these boxes.

I have also submitted my treat box for the Challenge #10 Halloween Theme challenge from Really Reasonable Ribbon’s Ramblings blog.  So much fun!
