Halloween Scenes Popcorn Treat Box

Didn't think I'd actually get to make a treat box for Raine this year but I was able to do it today–just in time for Halloween!

This Halloween treat box was CASEd from a project made by one of my stamping class ladies, Carolyn. I also found a video tutorial by Connie Stewart very helpful for working with the Popcorn Box Thinlits.

I started by creating the popcorn box itself using Elegant Eggplant. I then used Connie's tip to use the Popcorn Box Thinlit to cut a piece which got used as a template for adding mattes to the sides of the box. I cut four mattes from Whisper White.

On each panel, I sponged on Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, and Elegant Eggplant. I then used the 1 1/4" Circle Punch to punch four circles from Whisper White and sponged them with Crushed Curry and a little bit of Pumpkin Pie.

Using the Halloween Scenes Edgelits I die cut two witches and four trees from Basic Black and two fences from Silver Foil. I used Basic Black to stamp the tombstones 2X on Smoky Slate and the pumpkins 2X on Pumpkin Pie. These were die cut also using the Edgelits.

Before glueing anything to the panels, I played around with the best arrangements for all four of the panels. I then used liquid adhesive to attach all the items, stamping bats on two of the moons. Items that overhung the sides of the panels were trimmed off with the exception of the trees.

The tag sentiment was stamped with Basic Black on Pumpkin Pie card stock using the Halloween Scares stamp set. The tag was then die cut with a die from the Popcorn Box Thinlits. I used the 1/8" Circle Punch to punch a hole and then sponged the edges with Elegant Eggplant. The tag was threaded with a length of the Halloween Night Baker's Twine and also a tassel. More twine was strung around the top of the box and the tag attached to it. The candy was added and a non-Stampin' Up clothespin closed the treat bag.

I'm pleased with how it turned out and Raine liked it!


Here she is in her Captain America costume ready to go trick-or-treating! Too bad it had to rain this year but "Raine" faced it like a trooper!
