Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | 12 Weeks of Halloween 2019 – Week 12
Today’s the final instalment in this year’s 12 Weeks of Halloween series and as usual I have a few last-minute treat ideas to share with you made using the Monster Bash DSP & Spooktacular Bash Bundle.
These little treat holders are quick & easy and don’t use very much paper or cardstock so they’re perfect to make in bulk (for some class treats for example) and a great way to use up your scraps 🙂
I have three different ideas to share with you today, a chocolate wrap, sour cream container and pencil/lollipop holder. I tried to keep the supplies down by just using one bundle and DSP, but did use some punches for the pencil holders.
I know not everyone has a die cutting machine and punches are quicker to make multiples of as well so I thought I’d show this as an option, but use whatever you have, they’ll look super cute no matter what 😉
I’m starting with my favourite of the three and just love how this little chocolate wrap turned out. I designed this one to fit a Furry Friend (readily available in Australia), but if you want to use different one simply measure the length, width & depth of your treat and cut your DSP to the length x (width x2 + depth x2 + 1/2″ overlap) for the right size.
TIP: Practice on some copy paper first before cutting into the good stuff 🙂
I wanted to add a little trim to the edges of these treat holders so I cut my DSP to 3-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ and adhered a strip of Scalloped Edge Ribbon to both ends with some Tear n’ Tape Adhesive then wrapped the paper snugly around my treat and adhered the overlap on the back.
For a quick and easy embellishment I stamped one of the sentiments from Spooktacular Bash and die cut it out with the coordinating Ornate Frames Dies. I layered it onto anther die cut piece and added a couple of Monster Bash Enamel Shapes to finish them off 🙂
My second treat holder is an oldie but goodie, mini sour cream containers. I used 4″ x 6″ pieces of Monster Bash DSP for these ones (you could make 6 from one 12″ x 12″ sheet) and used Tear n’ Tape to assemble them.
The embellishment is super easy on these ones, I fussy cut some of the “portraits” from the same DSP, popped them up with dimensionals on the front and added a little bow of Scalloped Edge Ribbon for a finishing touch, all done 🙂
I designed these ones to fit the mini Jelly Belly packet you can see behind (available from Kmart) – I love that they’re also in a sour cream style packaging, so of course I had to make a sour cream container for them, my mind works in strange ways some times 😉
My final project are these pencil/lollipop holders, these are super fast to make and a great way to dress up something very simple.
A Quick Tutorial:
Cardstock: 2″ x 9-1/2″
DSP: 1-3/4″ x 2-1/2″
- Score cardstock @ 1″ & 4-1/2″
- Fold and burnish score lines, fold the 1″ score in the opposite direction to form a flap
- Round the corners (optional)
- Place your treat in the pocket and staple close to the 1″ score line (the staple will be hidden by the flap)
- Decorate as desired
I hope you enjoyed this year’s series, I always enjoy tying to come up with some new ideas and recreating old favourites 🙂 I have a personal goal as well to use ALL the Halloween stamps I buy and only have four stamps out of three different stamp sets that I haven’t used – and there’s still time left, that’s not too bad 🙂
