Hey there! As promised I am sharing another great great project for Halloween. Today you will learn how to make two cute Halloween Treat Holders!!
With the Halloween around the corner, I am sure we all need to have ideas on how to make Halloween treat holders. Am I wrong? Is it just me? Hope not.. 🙂
Also Today I am participating on the Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop with a lovely group of demonstrators around the globe. We will be showcasing different 3D items, so I know you are in for a treat!! Make sure you follow us along the Blog Hop. I know you will enjoy visiting all the blogs participating in today’s hop, not to mention that you will get so much inspiration!!
Halloween Treat Holders made easy!
Halloween Treat Holder #1
The first Halloween Treat holder I am going to be sharing with you is super simple to make. You need to have a sheet of card stock of Gray Granite that is 4″ x 8 1/2″. Stamp this piece of card stock with the jar images from the Spooktacular Bash Bundle from Stampin’ Up! I stamped in Gray Granite, as I wanted a tone on tone look.
Then score the piece of card stock on the long side at 2″, 4″, 6″ and 8″, and then turn it and score at 1/2″ and at 2 1/2″. You can see the following video, where I go over how to make the box. This was part of my FB live so scroll to around minute 14 to see exactly how to assemble the box.
To embellish this treat holder, I die cut one of the frames from the Spooktacular Bash Bundle. I used an image from the Monster Bash designer series paper (patterned paper).
I love that this paper pack has two sheets of the frame images, as you can easily cut them and have them ready for other Halloween treat holders or even cards! The process will go even faster if you cut these images ahead of the time.
Also the dies on this bundle are not really related to Halloween. You can use them for any occasion with any sentiment stamp set you already have! You can see how I used it here on a Christmas card. Believe me you want to add the Spooktacular Bash Bundle to your collection!
To finish this Halloween treat holder, I added the little closure to the top of the box, this is a great way close boxes as the recipient can open the treat holder without having to rip the box!
I also added the eye balls from the Monster Bash enamel shapes! these really made a difference as they added dimension!.. give it a try!
Halloween Treat Holder #2
The Halloween treat holder is a little pocket that holds Gummy bears, I know my little Oliver loves gummy bears, so I think his friends at day care will too!
Anyway for this pocket I used a piece of Basic Black card stock that is 8 1/2″ x 5″. It is scored on the long side at 2 1/4″ on both ends, and then on the short side you need to score at 3/4″ on one side and 1″ on the other side. You can watch this video to see how I made this card in more detail, this was as well made during the same FB live where I made the first Halloween treat holder, but you can scroll to around minute 25 to see how to put together the gummy bear holder.
I must confess that I am a very visual person, I rather video than words. I know I am not the best at explaining how to put together these cute Halloween treat holder with words, but I can show you in a video! And for this reason I recommend to watch this video. You can see step by step how to put them together!
Supplies needed for the Halloween Treat Holders
These Halloween treat holders use the collection of products from the Monster Bash Suite, which you can see HERE. You can scroll down to the bottom of this post and see all the specific products I use with the links to my store where you can purchase them.
