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!

Just a reminder … Today is the last day of the Buy 3 / Get 1 FREE Designer Papers …
So glad we’re such ghoul friends … that is our frightfully fun greeting on todays Halloween card which highlights the Spooktacular Bash Bundle. I’ve also showcased three (3) patterns from our Monster Bash Designer Series paper and in a fun Double Z-Fold card …
I started with a Paper Pumpkin base which coordinates perfectly with our designer paper. The first pattern has all our ghoul friends featured on it and is attached to the first panel of our card. The second pattern is a pair of our ghoul friends which were fussy cut and attached to front band of the “Z” which our greeting was stamped with the Spooktacular Stamp Set.
Inside our card you will find the creepy “Spider Web” pattern … with the “Double Z-Fold” card you get a sneak peek of this pattern because of the unique way it is folded. You will also find our eerie apothecary jars filled with ghoulish delights! Colored with our Stampin’ Blends and magically dazzled with a touch of our Wink of Stella. The ingredients in the jar are a bit “bone-chilling” if I do say so myself!
This product suite is so fun to work with and a great addition to your Halloween decorating arsenal. You will be seeing even more samples so stay tuned!
Have a frightfully fun Friday and thanks so much for your visit to my blog today.
Yesterday I shared the “To Every Season” Bundle with you, today I’m pairing it with the “Spooktacular Bash” Bundle and delivering it to you on a spooky little card featuring the W-Fold!! Are you ready?? Open if you dare ….
The background is Gorgeous Grape and stamped with Gorgeous Grape using both the “To Every Season” and “Spooktacular Bash” stamp sets, which is then layered over Pumpkin Pie over a Basic Black base.
The coffin was cut from a template I made from the cute little Coffin Treat Boxes also found in the Monster Bash product suite. I embossed it with the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder and with a light dragging of the Celestial Copper Delicata Metallic Ink Pad across the raised image you create some added dimension and sparkle!
The greeting is from the Spooktacular Bash bundle and die cut with the coordinating (and layering) dies… and lets not forget about those cute little bats which were punched from the To Every Season punch pack . Notice the sparkle … you guessed it, Wink of Stella!!
NOW IT’S TIME TO OPEN …
The “W-Fold” is created to POP out your images! This is the fold that our September Club members learned this month. Can you tell that the center 2 images are popping right out of your card? Keep opening ….
I tucked some fun little creatures inside the card to wish you a Happy Halloween! We layered the inside the same as the outside of the card, but instead of stamping on the grape … we embossed it just like we did to the coffin lid!
Now it’s fully open so you can see how nicely the card lays down. and a better look at our stamped images. The were all colored in the grape and then Wink of Stella was added over them. The inside band is what makes the W and our images pop.
I love that I can use the “To Every Season” Bundle with the “Spooktacular Bash” Bundle and then take it onto the next holiday! I’m all about purchasing products that I can use throughout the year … maximizing my money!! If you have to have the products you saw today … just click on the images below and it will take you to my on-line store.
Stop back tomorrow and I will show you how I take both of these bundles onto the next holiday!!
Thank you for checking out my blog … have a wonderful day!!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or message me below.
Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping in to see me.
