Need some Halloween treat give a away ideas? What about these? Here is an idea for some fun CHOCOLATE candy treats to give out as little “treats” to your kids for their lunch boxes on Halloween day, the sweet teachers, co workers, neighbors, friends, hair stylists, massage therapists, receptionists, favorite mechanic, mail deliverer, care giver, dog care giver, vet, gosh…I could mention tons more!! I bet you could, too! Here’s the deets! Debbie’s Details: The ever popular and perfect gift holder, the PILLOW BOX! You will need to use your Big Shot die cutter for it, it’s on page 41 of the Holiday catalog this year AND the BONUS is that it comes with 8 dies! Yes, that’s right. I used the Polka Dot dsp from Happy Hauntings paper stack in the Holiday catty to make this darling holder. SO EASY. Die cut it out using your Big Shot and glue the ends together and fold in the sides. That is it. I wrapped our Black satin ribbon around to add some spiff to it and attached my tag from the Sweet Hauntings stamp set. I stamped two of this image. One in Archival black ink and then Tangelo Twist orange ink. I did snip around the center part from the orange image and then used dimensionals to place on top the black piece. I wanted a contrast look to the tag. I will put lots of candy pieces in this pillow box, filled to the brim, but you can put so many other things inside it. It is a good size, not TOO big and not TOO small. So just right! You could put in lip glosses/lip balm with chocolate candies, small soaps, small nuts, hard candies, gum, a GIFT CARD with candy treats, endless! I’ve made SO many of these using all kinds of dsp and card stock. You have lots of possibilities of different ribbons, too and embellishments on top! The candy treats themselves were wrapped individually using Halloween Happy Hauntings paper, cut to fit. I cut the Tangelo Twist pieces 2″ wide and used the tag punch to punch both ends, 2″ x 6-1/2″ and then scored at 2-1/2″ and 4.” Wrapped the candies and used glue dots to secure on the inside. The “Death by Chocolate” sentiment is from the Happy Hauntings stamp set. I stamped a scrap piece of Very Vanilla card stock with the Chalk Lines stamp set first in Basic Black. Then I snipped the Death by Chocolate sentiment only after stamping in Archival Basic Black ink. I used the Black satin ribbon to bring together the top and wrapped the Very Vanilla THICK baker’s twine around that. Oh and I can’t forget! I punched out the orange “polka dots” using my 1/2″ circle punch and then used my Tombow glue to place them on top of the Chalk lines in Black to coordinate and “match” the polka dot designer series paper. You could make the Pillow Box and fill it to your heart’s content with whatever “treats” you’d like and make a chocolate treat holder to go along with it for someone special to make their day! How could they NOT smile???!! Give these a try and let me know if you have any questions. I would be most happy to answer your questions. 🙂 Have fun making these! Really and truly, the creative possibilities are endless. Be sure to check the list of products I used for this project below. It’s all there for you to make these cute little give a ways! I need to hurry and give mine away because I’m eating all the candy! Truly death by chocolate for me. I will never turn down anything CHOCOLATE. How ’bout you? Happy creating and have a wonderful, fun day doing what you LOVE! Whatever it is! Take care now and come back by again to see what else I’ve got cookin!’
