Hello! Today I’m sharing my last Halloween project with you, featuring the adorable Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies. I attended an American Business Women’s Association local chapter mixer last evening and rather than bring a bottle of wine, I thought it would be a nice touch to bring treat boxes filled with candies for all of the attendees. They looked very nice placed on either side of the table centerpiece. Everyone oohed and aahed and were delighted when I told them they each got to take one home!
I ended up using mostly retired products because they worked really well and it was an opportunity for me to continue to use them up. I used some of the Monster Bash Designer Series Papers in the current Holiday catalog a as well as papers from Halloween DSP from previous years that had more small-scale prints. I also used Basic Black Bakers Twine and the pumpkin on the tag came from a very old set, Halloween Frights. I tend to keep many holiday sets after they retire.
Here is how I made the boxes.
- Cut your selected Designer Series Papers into 6″ squares. Cut box shape with die from the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies by running through your die cutting machine. Fold box on all of the score lines.
- Place candies in open box before closing it up. The box holds 4-5 Hershey Kisses or 2-3 Miniatures or other similar-sized candies.
- Die cut tags using the oval-shaped die in the set. Stamp a greeting or image on scraps of Whisper White card stock. I stamped the pumpkin image with Pumpkin Pie ink.
- Thread bakers twine or other ribbon through the tag and then thread it through the box handles and tie in a bow.
