Halloween Treat Boxes

Spooky Origami Treat Box

 I followed the directions at Stampin' Up demonstrator site to make this origami treat box for Halloween.  Overall finished size is 3x3 just right for a few treats.  I love the way the box folds shut.
The video tutorial can be found here:

This next box was made using the Envelope Punch Board and by following the great video tutorial by Jen at Stamped Silly which can be found here: 

This box holds a full sized candy bar.

Happy Halloween and thanks for looking.

Ghostly Bats 

I made my own stencil by punching some bats out of a piece of transparency film and inking them with Frost White ColorBox ink on a sponge, then used Derwent Inktense pencils to outline and shade the bats.  The moon and sentiment were stamped using Eek & Shriek stamp set by Close To My Heart.  I added some netting and string to add a bit of texture and interest.  Papers used were Stampin' Up Smoky Slate, Whisper White and Gumball Green.

Boo Brew

Halloween Boo Brew
Taking inspiration from Dina Kowal, I crafted this card following her instructions for painting on paper and adding tissue paper (in my case silk paper from China) lightly gluing over the top.  I love the way it turned out and will certainly play along again.

The stamps used on this card are Stampin' Up Perfect Blend and Mixed Medley along with a Ghost by Inkadinkado.  Papers are Stampin' Up Early Expresso and K&Co. designer mat pad.

This card was crafted using instructions by Dina Kowal and can be found on here on her blog: 

Going Batty

This card was made following the sample on page 72 of the 2012 Close To My Heart Idea Book and Catalog.    The piece that is stamped with the graveyard background is cut out using the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and embossed.  Some of the bats were cut out with an EK Success bat edge punch and embossed and layered onto the card.  Black netting, buttons and black thread were used to embellish the card.

Cupcake Liners

Booglie Eyes Bat Card and Dracula Pillow Box Treat Holder

That's right cupcake liners and picks from the dollar store were used on these two items.  First is Dracula featuring a purple Stickled suit with a piece of a cupcake liner fanned out behind him, the second is a Stampin' Up Booglie Eyes bat card which also features the cupcake liners and a bat pick.

Thanks for looking over my newest Halloween additions.  Have a great week.
