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.

Fall & Halloween Card & Project IdeasStarting today I will be posting Fall and Halloween Card and Project Ideas every Wednesday until Thanksgiving.
For today I have two Fancy Favor Halloween Boxes for you to make.  I really do enjoy making cute Halloween things.

I am making a selection of things for my Treat and Gift Holder Class at the end of the month.  We will be making containers for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas for this class.  I am contemplating offering an Treat and Gift Holder Online Kit.  Please leave a comment below or email me if you would be interested in purchasing one.  I haven’t come up with the class or kit cost yet.  But I should in the next few days.  All parts will be provided.  Card stock will be cut and die cut.  You will need to provide the stamps, ink, and adhesive.

Well, back to today’s projects.

BASIC DIRECTIONS:
1.  Cut out Fancy Favor Bag making sure that the part you cut off is part of the tab.  Position your card stock just slightly past the cut line of the other edge.  Run through your Big Shot.  Sandwich if you are using a Crease Pad:  Cutting Pad, Bigz Die, card stock, Crease Pad.
2.  Fold all Score Lines.  Lay the Fancy Favor so the part that will be the outside is facing up.  Put Sticky Strip on the bottom edge of both rectangle tabs and one triangle tab and the side tab.  Turn over and put Sticky Strip on the other Triangle tab.  (Note:  Sticky Strip should be placed next to the score line on the side tab and on the edge opposite the score line-the cut edge-of the bottom tabs.)

“Put Together Box” step.  Adhere side to tab aligning so the box is squared.  Box Bottom.  Remove all upward facing Sticky Strip Backing from three of the bottom tabs.  Place the rectangle tabs in position, squaring up the box.  Place the first triangle tab down on the rectangle tabs.  Remove the Sticky Strip from the last triangle tab.  The Sticky Strip should be facing toward the bottom of the box.  Attach to bottom tabs.

BAT TAG DIRECTIONS:
1.  Follow all Basic Directions above including “Put Together Box” step.
2.  Color Bat stamp with markers and stamp on Whisper White card stock.  Punch out with 1-3/8″ Circle punch.  Punch 1-3/4″ Scallop Circle from Basic Black card stock.  Punch 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle from Elegant Eggplant card stock.  Layer together with Dimensionals.  Adhere to Fancy Favor box with Dimensionals.
3.  Fill your Fancy Favor Box with treats or small gift as desired.

SPIDER BOX DIRECTIONS:
1.  Follow Step 1 under Basic Directions.  Fold all score lines.
2.  Emboss.  Use Spider Web embossing folder to emboss half of your Fancy Favor box at a time.  Lightly rub Illuminate Glimmer ink pad over spider webs.
3.  Crease all Score Lines again.  Follow Step 2 in Basic Directions and Put Together Box step.
4.  Tag.  Color stamp with markers and stamp on Whisper White card stock.  Punch out using retired Large Tag punch or cut out along dotted line.  Punch an Extra Large Tag from Elegant Eggplant card stock.  Layer with Dimensionals and adhere to Fancy Favor box with Dimensionals.
