Hauntingly Cute Hand Sanitizer Gift Box

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you had a nice weekend and got a chance to check out the Halloween projects I shared yesterday … a card and a treat box! For some, Halloween is all about the candy, for others, they like to hand out practical gifts.  What would you think about creating something that makes those “practical” gifts more fun?  I have a cute little wrap for hand sanitizers that is quick -n- easy to make.

Let’s begin with the outer wrap.  Start with an 11″ x 3″ piece of cardstock.  Score the cardstock at 4-7/8″ and 6-1/8″ … these measurements will ensure the insert sits nicely in the wrap.  Then punch both ends, this will be used to for your ribbon and to close the top.

Attach a piece of 2-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ of designer paper… I used Monster Bash. We finished off the top edge of the designer paper by attaching a piece of ribbon over it and trimming off the edges.

Stamp your greeting and cut out with a favorite die or punch.  I used the coordinating die from the Spooktacular Bash Bundle and pop it up with the new black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Set your outer wrap aside for now … it’s time to create your inner (inset) piece.  Cardstock should measure 4-1/2 x 2-7/8″ … score at 1″ – 2″ – 3″ and 4″.  Using the smallest of the scallop ovals, place it between the the two score lines closest to the 1/2″ flap. (See photo below).

Once the whole is cut out, you will need to glue the 1/2″ flap to the opposite side to create a box.  The hole needs to be facing up … add glue to the bottom (opposite side with the hole) and set it into the outer wrap between the score lines.  Now you can tuck your Hand Sanitizer into the scallop oval hole.  The Bath & Body Works small hand sanitizers fit perfectly into the oval.

This would make a cute teachers gift, thank you gifts, get well ? Any reason … flu season is coming and why not be prepared and be the cool mom on the block!  This is also a great way to use up some of that designer paper you’ve been hording … lol.

Have some fun creating these cute Halloween gifts for your ghoul friends and then make some more for just for the fun of it … Christmas is coming too!

Not Bones About it … Sharing Bone Appetit

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Last night we kicked off our 2019-20 Stamp Clubs.  I’m so excited to gather my group of stampers around the table again. It’s always a good time.  This month we are creating cards featuring the new “W” Fold card.  I’m sorry I can’t share these with you “yet” … I have another Club on Saturday and I want them to be surprised. I promise I will be sharing in the near future.

Today I’d like to share the little treat boxes that I have made for each of my club members. It comes from the 2019 September Paper Pumpkin: Bone Appetit.  These little cuties are adorned in black strips or polka dots on a orange foil.

The little tags have cute dancing skeletons (above) or a spider web (below) … just too cute! I feel in love with the skeleton hand that acts as a closure for our box …

These little boxes were quick -n- easy to assemble and decorate… and they are filled with chocolates! Can’t get better than gathering with friends, having fun making cool stuff for Halloween and chocolate!

We have a couple chairs around the table that will be open for non-club members to join us. I will post the dates and the card fold / technique that we will be doing that month, and you can RSVP and join us. Although you will not receive Hostess Benefits like club members, you will still get to create the projects with us!

To sign up for Paper Pumpkin or get more details … click the Paper Pumpkin button on the side bar on my post.

Tomorrow I will share with you a totally cute alternative project I created using my kit.

Thank you so much for joining me today, hope your day is a good one.

Halloween Bash Coffin Treat Boxes …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

How are you on this beautiful day? Last night I held my Halloween Bash …

Although I don’t share all our creations, I would like to share one.  It is the Monster Bash Coffin Boxes which make the perfect little treat box for those very special Trick or Treaters in your life.  These would also make good table décor, gift boxes or name place holders, with a treat of course at your Halloween Bash!!

These little beauties come pre-cut and pre-scored in a package of 12 so all you have to do is glue them together.  If you would like to dress them up a bit, you can emboss the lid with the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder like we did in class.  The we used the new Copper Metallic Ink pad to “age” our coffin a bit.  With a gentle touch, simply drag the ink pad across the raised (embossed) images on the lid.

The cute little greeting, the black mat and the ornate copper background were all cut from the dies included in the Spooktacular Bash Bundle! Love our bundles because you can save 10% and that savings is also included when you purchase the entire product suite as a bundle… Nice!  That is what I did because I had to have it all.  I will share more of the product suite with you this month.

We added a piece of Lovely Lipstick ribbon behind our greeting and then I put a piece of Lovely Lipstick cardstock through my shredder and tucked it into the box to hold my treats.  I like using my cardstock this way because then it coordinates with the colors I use in the rest of my project.

I hope you enjoyed our little treat boxes as much as we did making them. They really are quick -n- easy to do and will add the prefect touch to your Halloween party. Better yet, when you see the excitement in the eyes of your special little trick or treater when you give them this fun Halloween treat.

I have a few people interested in a second class … If you would like to join us, let me know and I will host another.  We had a great time and everyone loved the projects we did!!  email me at lindaluvs2stamp@aol.com or message me below.

Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping in to see me.

Ready to get spooky?

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m sharing a little something old (not too old) and something new.  I must say that I am a bit of a Halloween nut! I don’t decorate as much as I used to but I still love crafting fun Halloween goodies and watching scary movies with all the lights out!! Not into gory … ghost stories are more my thing! lol

To pay homage to my ghosties, I have created this card …

A couple of weeks ago I shared my cute little Halloween boxes with you …  Look! A matching treat bag with my ghosties on it!! lol

Oh, and I have more … Just in case you’re feeling a little witchy or have gone a bit batty lately… here are a few more bewitching little treat bags! Oh my, I have to stop with the puns!

There’s nothing quite as cute as a spooky lil’ witch! Here’s more frightfully fun and perfectly adorable treat bags…

Take a close look … we’re using the cello bag for the first project, the Pizza Box for the second and last but not least is the Mini Gable boxes – spritzed with Gorgeous Grape!! I LOVE IT!!  (Put some rubbing alcohol in your spritzer with a few drops of ink refill to create the purple Gable box).

All of the projects you have seen here today were created with the products from the Toil and Trouble Suite on pages 48 and 49 of your Holiday Catalog.  The amazing Toil and Trouble designer paper coordinates with the Cauldron Bubble Framelits Dies (that is eerily awesome) and don’t forget those creepy little spiders you see crawling around, they are the perfect accent to the spider web die.  Ewe … they look almost real in this photo!!

Thank you for daring to drop in on this spooky trail of treats! I hope I have inspired you to create some Halloween fun of your own… make it a family affair. (Adams Family, Munster Family … OK, I’ll stop, besides I’m showing my age!!)

Have a Fun and Spooktacular day ~

Today’s Spooktacular Supply List …

 

 

No Toil … No Trouble … Just treats!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

To the catalog went LIVE yesterday and of course I had to put another order in (you know, things I didn’t pick up on the pre-order) lol.  Truth is, is buy in stages … my Halloween and Fall first, with a touch of Christmas. Yesterday, a few more Christmas items for my upcoming Holiday Stamping Retreat. (Which is Sold Out) Thank you ladies!!

Today however, I’m focusing on Halloween … before you know it, those little ghouls and goblins will be ringing our doorbells in celebration of the holiday.  I like to make special little treats for my grandkids and this year decided not to recreate the wheel but copy the cute projects in the catalog!!

My Bakers Boxes should be arriving tomorrow! I’m going to create the cute little green box with the spider webs.  So easy to color … just fill your Stampin’ Spritzer with alcohol, then add a few drops of the ink refill. The alcohol allows your ink to dry much quicker than if you would use water.

The tag is quick -n- easy to make with the Toil & Trouble Designer Series paper! There are so many cute patterns, I don’t know which one I like best (but that little ghost does pull at my heart strings).

Here is my little ghost card …

And since we are having fun with the Designer paper, what do you think about the “bat” pattern?  I took this paper and sponged on some fun color effects and this is what I ended up with …

You can get full details … just CLICK HERE.  And while I’m bragging about this amazing designer paper, lets talk about how it coordinates so nicely with the Cauldron Bubble stamp set and Cauldron dies.  Some of the dies actually cut images from the Toil & Trouble designer paper!!

There’s my little ghost again! He just seems to keep turning up throughout this entire blog post! This entire product suite will make your card and gift making as easy as a ghost floating through air.  A totally versatile product suite… so stop back tomorrow because I have another cute project for you to “gift” your little ghouls and goblins!

Thank you so much for sharing a part of your Friday with me! I’ve listed the products used for the projects I shared today. Click on any item for more details or to begin your shopping.  Don’t forget I’m tracking your Virtual Rewards Points … I will be sending out more on Monday!!

Have a wonderful weekend ~
