Tombstone Treat Bags for Halloween

Happy weekend! Are you playing in your craft room today?

I’m back with another project using the Die Cuts with a View Premium Halloween Spirit paper pad that will be hitting the shelves this season.

Treats aren’t just for the kids at Halloween … I mean, why should they have all the fun, right?! Oh, you could definitely make these for the kids, but I think I will be giving them out to a few of my friends!

These treat boxes open by lifting the top of the tombstone off. Inside I placed homestyle caramels in a pretty rows!

The foiled accents of the paper and stickers from this paper pad were a bit tricky to capture with my camera, but they make these projects Oh, So Special! Both the “Boo” and the “Happy Halloween” are shiny gold foil on the box below.

This cat is pulling his scariest face to try and keep you away from this candy haul. The ghost may be frightened, but don’t you run away … there are caramels waiting for you inside! Ha!

The hardest part about making these cute treat boxes is going to be giving them away! They look just as cute as a Halloween decoration sitting all together in a row.

Echo Park Paper: The Cookies Were Hung by the Chimney with Care

Delivering delicious, homemade treats to neighbors and friends is one of those iconic holiday traditions that I adore. If you are going to take the time to take a treat, why not package them in an adorable way while you are at it?!

I used the Dk. Blue/Gold Solid Paper for the bottom of the box, and then created the top with patterned papers from the Volume 2 Collection.
The window allows a peek inside to the homemade goodies. You can use several types of materials for the window; re-purposed clear packaging, a sheet protector, or a transparency. I chose to use a heavy-weight clear presentation report cover. These can be purchased at your local office supply or copy store.

The top of the stocking is decorated with die cuts from the Ephemera and Frames & Tags Ephemera packs. I also used the Jolly Branch Trio Die set to cut several pine branches from a green 6×6 patterned paper. They look so festive mixed in with the poinsettia and greenery handcut from the Berry Christmas paper.

The die cuts have added dimension with a few of the small chipboard word stickers and the shiny enamel dots. The gold glitter enamel dot made the perfect flower center for the poinsettia!

At the bottom of the stocking I created a pennant strip from 6×6 patterned papers to anchor the “Noel” chipboard piece. A couple of handcut pinecones from the Berry Christmas paper are the perfect accents!

Echo Park Paper: Pumpkin Muffin Tote

Happy Fall, friends! The minute the weather turns cool my family and I start craving pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. We always make several batches; some of the batches are for us to eat, but then we also like to make additional batches to take to our friends in the neighborhood.

This year I used the A Perfect Autumn collection by Echo Park Paper to create a darling tote to package up our muffins. The tote fits 9 muffins stacked in three rows inside a cellophane bag perfectly, and is sooo much cuter than a zip-top bag!

I created a tag for this bag by trimming one of the 3×4 Journaling Cards to a smaller size. I then notched the top two corners to create a tag shape.

These would be so easy to make ahead of time to have on hand. I used three different patterned papers for my totes and then used the Leaves & Acorn Die Set and the Carta Bella Hello Fall Layered Pumpkin Die Set to decorate the front.

I varied each bag a bit by using different tags and elements to accent the die cut pumpkins and leaves. On the polka dotted bag, I fussy-cut the word “FALL” from one of the 3×4 cut apart Journaling Cards.

Next, I added the squirrel and leaf sticker from the Element Stickers. I used a small chipboard circle with an acorn to accent the squirrel and added a sprinkling of brads above his head for some dimension.

The orange gingham bag is decorated with several more Element Stickers clustered together. I then added the Fox tag from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack to the handle.
