Are you looking for an easy way to package up treats?  If so, Stampin’ Up! Clear Tiny Treat Boxes are what you’re looking for!  These acetate 2″ x 2″ x 2″ clear boxes are packaged flat and then with a few folds and several tabs tucked in, your box is ready to go!

The idea for my treat boxes came right from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog.  There are so many ideas packed into each Stampin’ Up! catalog!   I used the very popular cat punch which is currently on backorder but is expected in stock on October 16th.

We used to have two adorable kitty cats, our Misty was all black and Joey was black & white.  I grew up with dogs and really didn’t care for cats.  When I was teaching and my husband was away a lot, we knew a dog wouldn’t work for our family so we rescued two kitties, a brother and sister, at the animal shelter.  I’d always heard that cats were aloof but these two were anything BUT.  They loved snuggling with us and many nights I woke up with Joey right on my pillow with me, well, actually he was hogging the pillow.  Those two showered our family with love. We lost Misty when she was 14 years old and Joey when he was 19.  If you’re an animal lover like me, I’m sure you’ll agree that our animals are an important part of our family and when we lose them, it’s heartbreaking.  Needless to say, when I saw the cat punch, I knew I had to have it!

Back to my treat boxes! I used three products from the Spooky Night Suite:  the Cat Punch, Spooky Cat stamp set and the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper. On the Skittles box, I cut the cat out of Basic Black cardstock with the Cat punch.  The two cats on the pistachio box were cut right out of one of the sheets in the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper package. How easy is that?

The sentiments are from the Spooky Cat stamp set and I used Memento Ink & a Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Pad. The Classic Label punch was used to cut out Happy Halloween.  The cats are attached to the Clear Treat Boxes with Glue Dots and I used Stampin’ Dimensionals for the sentiments.

You can fill these Clear Tiny Treat Boxes with just about anything and they’re pretty just wrapped up with ribbon!
