Tricky Treats & Monster Munchies Mini Milk Cartons

Fall & Halloween Card & Project IdeasI have been busy getting ready for my Treat & Gift Holders Class which is Friday.  I will have a Tutorial up for sale next week some time.  I also hope to have a Fancy Favor Video Class up some time next week.  Also remember the Back to Spool offer ends September 30th.

So, now on to today’s projects.  I haven’t used the Mini Milk Carton for a while.  The Tricky Treats and Monster Munchies  stamp sets seemed just the perfect size to use.

Black Cat or Frightening Feline?

This cute little Frightening Feline has all sorts of “scary” words composing it’s body.  This is a quick and simple Halloween card to make.  The Frightening Feline stamp is a single stamp in the Holiday Catalog.  I did use Black Embossing Powder to get the clean, crisp image.  A Spider web embossing folder is the background for the Window Frames Framelits.  Rhinestone eyes look at you and make you wonder “What is this cat up to?”

Halloween Candy Carton

I love the variety of things you can use this cute, little mini Milk Carton die for.  This time it will be nice for Halloween Treats.
Got Treats?SUPPLIES:
  Got Treats  page 65  w#119114  c#120627
Card Stock:  Cajun Craze  8-1/2″ x 6″
Whisper White  1-5/16″ square  (2 squares)
Ink:  Basic Black
Markers:  Always Artichoke
Tangerine Tango
Big Shot:  Mini Milk Carton Bigz L Die  page 221  #117310
  Clips Assortment  page 197  #112580
Other:  Sticky Strip
Bone Folder

  Cut out Mini Milk Carton with Big Shot.
2.  Fold on all score lines with your Bone Folder
3.  Stamp “To Open” on top of carton inside wide triangle sections towards center section.
4.  Stamp sentiment in center section under “To Open” so it will be on opposite sides.
5.  Color the “Got Treats pumpkin” with markers and stamp on both Whisper White Squares using a Stamp-a-ma-jig if desired.
6.  Attach to milk carton.
7.  Lay milk carton with stamped images facing up.  Put Sticky Strip on side tab.  Turn milk carton over so stamped images are facing down.  Place sticky strip on 3 of the bottom tabs.  I usually put Sticky Strip around all the edges of one of the side tabs and a diagonal piece of Sticky Strip on the 2 tabs next to it, leaving the other end tab clean.  The clean tab will be the first tab folded up.  But before you do that…….
8.  Fold part of the Milk Carton over so the side tab is in the center.  Remove the red part of the Sticky Strip.  Fold the other half so the tab is slightly covered by the edge to form a box shape.  Move it to a square position.  Remove the red parts of the Sticky Strip from the bottom tabs.  Fold up the “Clean” bottom tab, then the two center tabs-one at a time, then the very bottom one that has more Sticky Strip on it.  Use you bone folder to press the bottom from the inside of the box to help your Sticky Strip adhere well.
9.  Fill with treats of your choice.  Hold the top closed with the Clip.
10.  Admire your Halloween Candy Carton before you give it to some lucky person.

  Using Basic Black ink, stamp the Spiders from “Out on a Limb,” and the Word “Spooky” from “Wicked Cool” onto the Pumpkin Pie card front top layer.
  Ink up the raised Spider Web on the Embossing folder using your brayer and Basic Black ink.  Carefully, but quickly,  lay your stamped Pumpkin Pie card stock, stamped side down, onto the inked side of the Spider Web.  Close embossing folder and run through your Big Shot.  Yes, your Spider Web will be Debossed (the embossed lines will form a valley instead of being raised).  Touch up the stamped spiders and spooky with your Basic Black marker if necessary.  Clean your Spider Web embossing folder with either a baby wipe or run water over it in the sink and rub the ink off if necessary.
3.  Pierce a hole in each corner for your brads using your Mat Pack and Piercing Tool.  I lined up the outside lines on each corner of the smallest holes and pierced the second hole diagonally from the corner.  Just do all four corners the same.
4.  Using Basic Black ink, stamp the broom and the witch.  Use a Stamp-a-ma-jig to help you place them exactly, if you want.  Color using the Markers listed in the Supplies list.  Holding the Scallop Circle Punch upside down so you can see your stamped image, center and punch.  Place Dimensionals on the back.  Punch the 2-1/2″ Black Circle.  Layer witch on top.  Put Dimensionals on the back of the Black Circle and place as desired on Spider Web card front.
5.  Layer Basic Black card front on card base using Snail.  Place Dimensionals on back of Pumpkin Pie layer and attach to Basic Black layer of the card.  Use the Dazzling Details iridescent glitter glue on each white scallop around the witch.  It will take 30 minutes or so to dry.
6.  Admire your cute Halloween card!
