Sweet Treats for You by Neva Cole

Time for a few candy treats, Halloween candy that is! This sweet little-handled box was easy to create with dies and stamps and is ready to give to a special someone! The box was die cut then stamped to create a balanced use of the images. One side of the box is die cut to create an opening for a window that is finished with a bit of recycled packaging. The die cut itself is used to make a matching tag. To outline the sentiment in coordinating colors the image was stamped several times just out of alignment to create the shadow effect. Add a few bakers twine to tie the tag to the box and a few mini candy bars finish off the little gift.

Halloween Tombstone Treat Box Template by Roni Johnson

Halloween is quickly approaching and this year I’m lucky enough to have 3 little ones to spoil this year. I thought it would be fun to make a Tombstone Treat Box to hold their “loot”.

To create the initial layer of color on the tombstone background start by pouncing Niagra Mist, Aloe Vera and Sahara Sand VersaMagic inks on the Craft Mat. Mist the inks with water and pounce the cardstock into the ink mixture until you are satisfied with the color. Let the cardstock dry completely. Since VersaMagic is such a dense ink this step will not take long.

Next, pounce Green and Purple Encore’ ink onto the craft mat, mist with water and dip the cardstock in the ink one or more times. Once again, let the cardstock dry. Crumble the paper to create the spooky wrinkle texture. Sponge London Fog Memento Dye ink over the creases in the paper with a Jumbo Dauber to highlight the wrinkles and give it a distressed, worn look. Print the tombstone treat box pattern and use as a guide to cut out the treat box. You can also ink directly onto the template but I choose not to because I did not want the cut lines and folds to show. Assemble the tombstone using Tear It Tape. Ink the edges of the tombstone with Black Memento Dye Ink. Add desired stamped images and sentiments.

And the best part, fill with lots of chocolates and candies then… Enjoy!
