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:

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!

Razzleberry Crazy for Cupcakes

  Cut 4 (1″ x 6″) small rick rack using the Big Shot and the Tasteful Trim die.  Hint:  Stack all 4 pieces on the die and you only have to cut once.  You can do this with all dies that don’t have score lines.  If they have score lines, only use one sheet at a time.
3.  Cut the Modern Label Punch Window from Rich Razzleberry using the Movers and Shapers die and the Big Shot.  Stamp the Sentiment in Rich Razzleberry onto the Pink Pirouette card stock.  Center and punch with the Modern Label punch.  Layer on Rich Razzleberry Punch Window with Dimensionals.
4.  Cut 2-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ piece of Rich Razzleberry.  Place this layer and your sentiment in approximate places on card.  You can use Dotto removable adhesive to temporarily hold them in place while you position your rick rack frame.  It would also be helpful if you placed your card on grid paper so you can make sure your rick rack is straight.  Place it about 1/4″ from the edge of your card front.  Match up “v” shapes to make a square corner turn.  Place a small dot of Tombow glue at each corner.  Hold for a few seconds until it is secure.  Trim excess rick rack off with scissors.  Glue your frame on with Tombow.
5.  Adhere your sentiment with Dimensionals.  Shake the excess glitter off your cupcakes.  Adhere cupcakes to Rich Razzleberry layer with Dimensionals.  Adhere layered cupcakes with Dimensionals.

Blossom Box – Third Time is a Charm

Here is a Blossom Box.  I knew I wanted to make this when I first saw it in the catalog.  It does need to be made with regular Designer Series Paper-not cardstock or Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The regular DSP folds so much more precisely which means the box looks much better.
Blossom Box

Designer Series Paper (DSP):  Christmas Cocoa (retired)
Big Shot:  Blossom Box Bigz L die  page 221  #123127
Standard Premium Crease Pad page 215  #113476
1/2 sheet cardstock to use under the die in the Big Shot
Tools:  Scissors
Bone Folder  page 207  #102300
Sticky Strip  page 206  #104294

  Cut your piece of DSP in half (two: 6″x12″ pieces).
2.  Big Shot Sandwich:  Acrylic cutting pad, 1/2 sheet cardstock, Blossom Box die, your choice of DSP with the side you want on the outside face down, Standard Premium Crease Pad.  Run through Big Shot.  Repeat with the second piece of DSP.
3.  Trim the tabs off one of the Blossom Box pieces.
4.  This is the step that makes your box easier to fold.  Use your Bone Folder to firmly crease all the score lines in the following order:  center circle which will form the box bottom, middle circle which will form the box top, the straight lines that run from the center circle to the indents on the outside edge, the two part lines that form “v” shapes in the DSP-these will form the Blossom Fold at the top of the box-be accurate!  Recrease the Center and Middle circles.
5.  Attach Sticky Strip to the tabs.  Peel off the red part, then cut out the “V” shapes in the tab.  Line up the center circles and adhere.  Crease the score lines along the tab again.
6.  Now to turn this into a working Blossom Box!  Hold the Blossom Box in the palm of your hand.  Try to hold up four sides using your fingers.  Now start folding the straight and the “V” lines like a fan going all around the edges of the box until you have folded all of them.  If a score line doesn’t fold properly, use your bone folder to make a better crease and try again.
7.  Heave a sigh of relief!  Admire your beautiful Blossom Box!!

Pretty Metal Daisy

I have seen a lot of metal used with the Big Shot Bigz dies.  So…. I decided to try it out.  The samples I saw were made of soda cans, mine is made out of a V-8 Fusion can.  They are quick and easy to make!!

Big Shot:  Flower, Daisies #2  page 222  #114520 (Any Bigz die will cut thin metal)
Other:  Craft & Rubber Scissors  page 208  #103179 OR tin snips
Adhesive:  Sticky Strip, Glue dots, or metal glue

1.  Drink whatever is in your can.  Rinse out and let it dry.
2.  Use your Craft & Rubber Scissors or tin snips to cut the can.  I started at the hole on top and cut through the top and down the side.  Be careful because the metal can cut you!  Cut around the bottom of the can and then around the top of the can so you metal piece becomes a rectangle.
3.  Lay your metal rectangle on your Bigz die with the side facing down that you want to see.
4.  Run it through your Big Shot just like you would cardstock.
4a.  Optional step:  If you want to add some texture to your metal, run the cut pieces through the Big Shot using an embossing folder.  I didn’t do that here, but thought it was worth mentioning.
5.  Adhere the flower parts together.  I used the silver side of the largest circle for the center of my flower.  You can add a pin back if you want to using cardstock on the back or you can use the leftover metal to cut more circles with your Big Shot and die.  Notice the metal parts are no longer sharp.
6.  Enjoy your metal creation!
