For my large scale project, I chose to work with the pumpkin...The coordinating Favor It Box #6 is perfect for assembling adorable Halloween treats & sweets. This sweet pumpkin goody box, with it's Clearly Creative Jack O' Lantern windows, gives you just a peek at what's inside. More instruction on how to create this special treat box below. I loved the way this goody box turned out and I couldn't stop at just one. I used a couple sheets of Halloween Prints pattern paper to create a coordinating trio.Stamped the first goody box with Background Basics: Houndstooth and then embellished all three with a Orange Zest button and a coordinating tiny tag. Die cut the Tiny Tags from white cardstock, stamped with a Jack O' Lantern smile and a sentiment and then attached. Topped them off with a black satin ribbon bow. And now... a miniature version of these adorable Halloween Treats & Sweets! I dangled this spooky but "oh so cute" spider bucket from an embroidery floss web.I started by stamping the spider bucket and sentiment directly onto the card base. Pierced a hole at the top of the card base and the bucket, threaded with black embroidery floss and tied ends together inside. Die cut the bucket from True Black and Orange Zest cardstock, trimmed off the top of the orange bucket and attached it over the black one. Stamped the face, attached to the card base and embellished with a bow.
Now, onto how I assembled the pumpkin Halloween Treats & Sweets boxes... Here's How: I started with three Favor Box #6 die cuts. Two for the box and one for the front.Trimmed off the bottom portion of the third Favor It Box #6 die cut. Stamped the pumpkin face. At this point, if you choose, this is when you would stamp a pattern onto the pumpkin front.Trimmed off the top with scissors. With a craft blade, I carefully cut around the stamped pumpkin face.Stamped and cut a scrap pumpkin face, to use as a template. Using a pencil, I traced the template onto the front of the Favor It Box #6 die cut.I then cut along the pencil lines. Also note.... To ensure that the side flap of the box was not visible, once assembled, I trimmed a tiny bit of the flap off. You will also need to do the same to the other die cut side of the favor box as well.I die cut the Favor It Box #6 front from Clearly Creative Cardstock and trimmed off the excess.I now had three pieces (the box, pumpkin front and the die cut clear cardstock) to assemble the box front.Using Scor-Tape, I attached the clear cardstock to the box and then the pumpkin to the clear cardstock.Once the layers were attached, I assembled and embellished the box.
