Boo to You, Monster Bash DSP, Halloween Treat Holder, 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

Today I wanted to play with the "Boo to You" set since Halloween is only a day away and I'll be putting this set up for a while.  It will probably be retired because that's what happens to most of the sets in the Holiday Catalogs. 

I like making these simple candy holders.  They are not only quick to make but cute too.

The sleeve measures 5-1/2" x 5-1/2".  I scored the piece at 1-1/4", 1-1/2", 3-3/4" and 4".  I burnished the fold lines so they were nice and crisp before I wrapped it around the candy bar.  This is a full size Hershey's candy bar (the 1.55 oz size).  I glued one side on top of the other side.

I cut a Basic Black piece of card stock measuring 5-3/8" x 2-1/8".  The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from the "Monster Bash" 12" x 12" paper pack.  I cut it to 5-1/4" x 2" and I taped it to the Basic Black piece.  Then I taped those layers to the front of the candy bar sleeve.

I stamped the monster from the "Boo to You" set using black Memento ink.  I colored him using both dark and light Highland Heather Blends Pens. I used the dark Daffodil Delight for the teeth, toenails and spots on the horns.  I colored the horns and eyes in using the light Granny Apple Green pen.  I die cut him out using the "Stitched Circles" die.  Then I die cut a scalloped circle using Basic Black card stock.  I taped those two circles together and I set the circles in place using Dimensionals. Be careful not to get the Dimensionals too close to the edges or they will stick out on the back side and stuff can get stuck to them and make the circle look awful.  Keep it clean.  You might want to just eye where the circle will go and add the Dimensionals to the wrapper front, that way you avoid any issues at all.

These are very fun and quick to make.  I think it's adorable!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
