Treat Packaging Day 2


It’s Day 2 of my Week of Treat Packaging!  Today I’ve wrapped up some Ghirardelli chocolates in our Gusseted Cellophane Bags.  I have 6 inside each bag but you could definitely add more! The bags can be found in the Annual catalog and are new this year.  They are food safe so you can also use candy that isn’t wrapped up.  If you’d like to give a non-food treat, a gift card would fit nicely inside as well.

I used a piece of Halloween Night DSP  that measures 2-7/8″ x 8-3/4″ scored @ 1″ and 3″  The paper slips into the gusseted bag and the weight of the candy will make it stand up.  I didn’t score the top part of the paper, but the extra gets folded over the top.  I stapled the bag shut with our handheld stapler which comes with mini staples that are just 3/8″ long. Since the staple is holding the bag shut, it isn’t necessary to use the clip but I thought it was cute.  Plus, once the recipient opens the bag, it can then be closed using the clip.

Aren’t the scarecrows adorable???  They are from the set Cookie Cutter Halloween and the bats on my project yesterday also came from this set.  I had fun coloring them in with colored pencils.  If you are considering purchasing this stamp set and the matching punch, please be aware that the punch is part of a bundle that includes the stamp set Cookie Cutter Christmas  AND this punch also works with the stamp set I’ve used today, Cookie Cutter Halloween (I hope that isn’t too confusing).

Both of my sentiments come from the stamp set Spooky Fun.  This stamp set can also be purchased as a bundle which includes the stamp set and the Halloween Scenes Edgelits Dies.  All of items in our bundles CAN be purchased separately but I wanted you to be aware of the options!

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.
