Hello and happy Friday. Just For Fun Friday! I'm sharing these fun and easy Halloween treat holders made with a Sizzix pillow box die. (I've always called these "pie" boxes because they remind me of the McDonald's original apple pie containers.) This particular die is one I've had a very long time from Stampin' Up.
I cut the pie boxes from Tim Holtz's newest paper stash Regions Beyond in the 8" x 8" pad. If you love Halloween and vintage, this is gonna be a favorite.
I added a 1 1/4" wide band of paper around each. To ensure the scores and folds were crisp and lined up with the boxes, I cut these bands with the die, simply laying them across the center of the die area.
I had a bunch of these Halloween muse tokens in my stash, so I colored them with drops of Ginger, Sunset Orange, and Pitch Black alcohol ink. This gave them a cool creepy look.
Next I took orange and black Kraft Core card stock strips and ran them through the mini rosette die, assembled them, and attached the tokens with strong glue.
I stamped a strip of ivory card stock with Black archival ink using the Simple Sayings stamp set by Stampers Anonymous. Finally, I cut a strip of black tulle and tied it into a knot, then frayed the ends and attached them to the tokens with Fabri-Tac.
This is an easy, fun project you can do in just a few hours while watching TV or listening to Halloween music. All that's left to do is fill them with candy once Halloween is here.
Thanks for stopping in today. Are you into Halloween like me? I can't stop making Halloween projects right now! I love it! What are you working on for the season?
