Treat Packaging Day 1

Normally I’m not already thinking about holiday treats but with all of the cuteness in the Holiday Catalog, it’s hard not to!  For the next seven days I’m going to share projects that will help with your October treat giving.

What chocolate lover wouldn’t love opening a box filled with a humongous sized package of M&M’s??  Yesterday I posted a Stampin’ Up! video that showed how to make your own custom box (if you missed it, you can see it HERE).  After watching it and following the directions, I made a box that fit my candy perfectly!  You can see it sitting in the bottom half of the box.

Here’s the finished box!  I used lots of different products from the Holiday Catalog and I’ve listed them all below in the Product List.  The bottom of my box was made using Basic Black cardstock and the top is from the Halloween Night Specialty DSP pack.  I wrapped it up with two different pieces of twine but they come together in a set.

My tag was made using the Cheerful Tags Framelits Dies.  There are two different types of tags in the set with 8 dies in all.  My cute bats come from the very popular stamp set Cookie Cutter Halloween.  I finished it off with the Halloween Night Enamel Dots and a piece of Washi tape at the bottom.

Here are the dimensions that I used for box.  Bottom:  6-1/2″ x 10″  Score at 1″ along all the sides     Top:  6″ x 9-1/2″  Score at 3/4″ along all of the sides.  In the video Donna suggests cutting a smidge off two of the sides of the bottom of the box so be sure to refer back to it so that your top will fit nicely onto the bottom.
