Cute Halloween Meets Pretty Pillow Box Dies

It’s September first and time to start thinking of the arrival of Fall later this month.  And what celebration comes in Fall?  Halloween, of course!  In this post, Cute Halloween meets Pretty Pillow Box Dies.  Quick, easy treat holders are made using the Pretty Pillow Box Dies and the Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper.  The holders are perfect for adding several pieces of small individually wrapped candies.  To embellish the treat boxes, the Cutest Halloween Bundle continues the theme and adds the finishing touch to each treat holder. 

Cute Halloween Pillow Box Treats 

Details and tips for assembling:
  • Cut a 4-1/2″ x 6″ piece of the Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper using the Pretty Pillow Box Die.  
  • Fold and burnish the score lines on the box.  
  • If desired, cut notches with either the edge of a circle punch (I used a retired 1/2″ punch and inserted it along edge of back flaps – see photo) or use a small circle punch to cut notch – just place the die on 1/2 of the paper. 

  • Next, fold the box flat and seal the scallop flap to the front.

  • Next open the pillow box, fill with treats and close the side flaps.
To embellish the treat boxes:
  • Use the Halloween Punch from the Cutest Halloween Bundle to cut images from the Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper.  TIP: cut around one of the images from the patterned  paper, then use a post-it note strip to hold onto the paper while putting into punch to cut the shape. Great way to eliminate wasting paper!

  • Next, stamp the sentiment onto a strip of 1/2″ Basic White cardstock & cut flag end using the Banners Pick A Punch.   Then, layer the stamped sentiment onto a banner cut from a 3/4″ strip of Highland Heather cardstock.  Attach to the top of the pillow box with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Complete by adding the image punched from the designer series paper.

These cute Halloween meets Pretty Pillow Box Dies treat boxes are easy to make!  These treat holders are perfect for making your Halloween treats special.

You’ll find all the materials listed under Project Materials below.  (And if you purchase the Cutest Halloween Bundle, the Pretty Pillow Box Dies & the Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper, you’ll get to select a FREE Sale-a-Bration product through September 30)

Nature’s Harvest Good Luck

For the August card class, the Nature’s Harvest bundle is the feature.  For each class, four projects are made and the Nature’s Harvest Good Luck card is one of the cards.  This is a simple stamping card and proves simple can also be elegant.  The Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper provides a beautiful background for the flowers die cut from the Cork Specialty Paper.  And of course, the Misty Moonlight color scheme is always a winner (in my opinion – LOL).

The “Must Have” Stamp Bundle

While there are lots of beautiful stamp bundles in the Stampin’ Up! catalogs, there is one “must have” stamp bundle.  You may wonder why I say it’s a “must have”. The reason – it’s all sentiments!  I can’t count the number of times that I have created a card to spend what seems like hours searching for a sentiment.  With the Many Messages bundle there are 19 (yes, 19!) sentiments for different occasions.  Even better, the sentiments are one large cling stamp so you can stamp all the sentiments at once.  The coordinating die makes it even simpler. There are a variety of shapes that line up to perfectly cut the sentiments.   So, you’re able to stamp all the phrases at once, then cut them out with the coordinating die.  Can’t get much easier than that! Below are a few tips for using the bundle.

Tips for using the Many Messages stamp and the coordinating die:

  • Use a Stamparatus for ease in re-inking and re-stamping the large stamp.  This way you ensure re-stamping in the same location. 
  • Notice, the small stars and heart on the die and the stamp set.  These are the registration marks for using to ensure the die lines properly.  Align the die with the registration marks and you get perfectly cut sentiments each time.  
  • Use removable tape to hold the die in place before running through your die cutting machine.
  • Stamp using a variety of your favorite ink colors to have sentiments handy when you need to make a card quickly. (FYI…I store the cut sentiments in the clear envelope bags.)

In the photo below, Stampin’ Up! showcases several ways to use the sentiments.  Stamp a background using the same ink color as cardstock, then add a few extra details and select the desired sentiment from the group to add to the card front.  Or, group several sentiments to create a sentiment phrase.  Lastly, use a single sentiment to complete your card.  

Many Messages Samples

In my next post, I’ll be sharing more cards using the “must have” stamp bundle!  Be sure to register to receive new posts each week.
