Curvy Halloween Keepsake treat holder

IMG_8260

This Curvy Keepsake treat holder of gift holder is just SOOOOOOO CUTE!  Since I knew I was making a Halloween holder for my post today, I thought I would throw together a card to “match!”  I like doing that so that I can write my wishes and thoughts in it and makes it a bit more “special” for the recipient.  🙂

For this holder, I put, well…I PILED as many chocolate Hersey treat candies in it I could.  Won’t that be a heavenly surprise to get!  Can eat ANY TIME OF THE DAY!  YES!

Here’s the details, deets, scoop, how’d she do it details especially for YOU!

Debbie’s Details!

Curvy Keepsake Box holder – page 171 Annual catty!  It’s adorbs!    I used Tangelo Twist for the paper and the Pumpkin “face” from the Sparkly Seasons stamp set in the Holiday catty!  There is a video on Stampin Up on how to make this box from the die.  Very easy, but feel free to ask me if you have some questions about it.

Her cute, sparkly hat was made using the Black GLIMMER PAPER in the Holiday catty.  I punched out top of hat using the Tree builder punch and the 2-1/2″  circle punch and centered the word window punch to cut out a slit to fit the tree trunk inside.  Glued the top of hat “points” with glue dots and placed a glue dot on the glimmer ends of the trunks, slipped the “hat” part down in the slit of the circle punch, folded trunks back and pressed them firmly.

CUTEST bow ~ Made with the Bow maker punch!  Use Happy Hauntings designer series paper polka dot paper.

Spider Web Doilies – Out of the amazing Holiday catalog, fold it in half and barely cut the center edge out to create the slit.  I place the doily on top of Mr. Pumpkin Curvy Box and then place the darling Witches hat atop of that!  It’s done!

The hard work – well…..there’s NO HARD WORK here, sweet friends! 🙂   The die cut using the Big Shot did the “hard work” which was NOT hard work.  You can make SO many different animals, snow men, penguins, pigs, you  name it with this cute holder. You can use our beautiful designer series paper, even Vellum!  SEE???!!!!   This cute box holder can be used year round, too, for all sorts of special “give aways!”

It really is quite versatile, PLUS it “HOLDS” things!  I like that part the best so I can give away treats to friends, strangers, people at the Post Office, stores and waiters/waitresses, etc.

THE CARD DEETS! ~ Tangelo Twist card base, Very Vanilla, Black glimmer paper, Happy Haunting paper to cut the banners. I used our awesome Banner Framelits on page 173 of the Annual catty.    I embossed the Very Vanilla banner with the Large Dots embossing holder (need to use your Big Shot), layered them after I cut a Spider Web doily in half and placed it under the vanilla banner.    Made the hat by punching out the large Oval punch and one more black tree using the tree punch.  I used a glue to attach it to the oval brim hat piece and laid it back.  Gotta love the punches!!  I love my punches!  I stamped my sentiment from the Holiday catty “A LITTLE SOMETHING” stamp set in the Holiday catty.  There are some versatile stamp images to use year round, check it out.

I thought the card turned out pretty cute to match the treat holder!  Get busy making these fun little holders!  They really are darling in person!

That’s all there is to it.   You could use these holders to give out to co workers, teachers, friends, family, any one that provides a service to you, grand parents, children’s lunch treats in their lunch box, hair stylists, professors, bosses, anyone, really!  I will be making some for Thanksgiving and Christmas and will share here with you!  Let your imagination run wild!

Hope you had a great Saturday, until next time, best wishes from my stampin room to yours!
