Scary Cute, Halloween Treat Box, Weekend Project, Stampin' Up! 2022 Fall Mini Catalog

While looking at a video on YouTube, I glanced over to the right at the sidebar and there was this cute Halloween box to make. Well, I couldn't wait for my video to get over so I could see how to make this box. It's pretty easy and very fun. You can see the video here

First you make the box by scoring a 6" x 7-1/2" piece of Basic Black card stock at 1", 3-1/2", 4-1/2" and 7" on the long side. Turn clockwise and score at 1", 4-1/2" x 5-1/2". Then you need to clip and cut away some pieces. I took a photo after I did my clipping and snipping. You also need to snip a partial circles  

The box was then glued shut on the side. I prefer to use glue because I know it's going to hold. Then the bottom is glued. 

The box is then decorated. First you cut your favorite Designer Series Papers (DSP). I used what what shown on the video. Mine is from the "Black & White" 12" x 12" package. I cut the front and back pieces at 2-1/4" x 3-1/4". The sides are cut at 3/4" x 3-1/4" and the bottom and top pieces are cut at 3/4" x 2-1/4".  When I cut my piece of DSP I cut the sheet at 2-1/4", then I cut the two 3-1/4" pieces. From what was left I was able to get all four strips. I cut a side and then a top and repeated that for the other strip. No waste there. Those pieces were all glued in place. I used the circle punch to punch the DSP on the backside where the other partial circle was cut on the Basic Black piece.

Here's where you add your treat. Then tie your favorite ribbon around the box and tie a bow on the top. 

The layers for the front are a 2" x 3" piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock and a 1-3/4" x 2-3/4" piece of DSP from the Brights Collection. The character is stamped on that piece, pretty much centering it. Then the piece was taped to the Pumpkin Pie piece. The instructions say to add Dimensionals and set it on the front of the box. I would recommend adding the moon and bats (die cut from the "Scary Cute" bundle). It's easier to press them down in place without the Dimensionals cushioning it. 

The words are from the same "Scary Cute" set and were stamped on a scrap piece of Highland Heather using black Memento ink. I die cut it with the die from the "Scary Cute" bundle and it was glued in place on the front of the panel. The top edge sits just under the foot of the character.

The moon and bats were glued in place and I added some iridescent sequins because I didn't have any of the gems used on the original box.  Then set the panel in place on the front of the box. Wink of Stella was added to the bats and the box was done.

Isn't it adorable?  I want to try this again with a Christmas theme.

Edited on 9-30-22.  I forgot to mention, the Oreo cookies in the cute little packages came from the Dollar Tree.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see today's fun Halloween project,
