Spooky Bingo Bits Top Note Treat Holder

Hey Stampers !!

Happy Hallowe'en !! Hope you all have a Spooktacular Day !! LOL I spent some time last night making some last minute treats. They were SO easy and cute that I had to share them on here, even if you probably won't be able to make any before the Trick or Treaters come knocking on your door tonight. But they can be decorated for any occasion ! They are made using the Top Note Die and hold all sorts of yummy goodies ... have a look !!


Are they cute or what !?! I die cut a piece of cardstock and a piece of the Howlstooth and Scaringbone DSP with the Top Note Die by running it through my Big shot. The best thing, is that you can cut a bunch of layers at one time with that die, so you can make quite a few all at the same time! I then hand cut around the stitching on the DSP layer so that when I adhered them together, you would have a cardstock border. A bit more time consuming, but I thought it was worth it. And I was only making a few !! Hahaha. I scored a 1/2" in the middle of the die cut (thats how wide I needed for my treats) and folded using my bone folder. I used the Spooky Bingo Bits stamp set for my decoration. I inked the words from the set (which include Boo, Eeek, Spooky and Candy) in Old Olive and then put an image behind the words with Basic Gray ink (the two shown here use a spider web and a bat). I then punched out my image with the 1" Circle Punch and layered it onto an Old Olive 1-1/4" Scallop Circle. This got popped on with a dimensional. Then it was time to put in the candy !! 


I used the (sadly retired) It's A Wrap Holidays set to wrap u my Hershey Nuggets. The paper got wrapped around for your own little "custom made" chocolates !! The original Its A Wrap Occasions is still in the Annual Catalogue, so check that out if you want some custom candy !! I then ran some adhesive on the inside so the chocolates would stick and not fall out to get lost inside a Trick or Treat bag. Lastly I wrapped a piece of 3/8" Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon around the bundle to finish it off !! Love it !!

I really love how these treats turned out. They would be great for table favors or co-worker gifts for any occasion as well !! Thanks a lot for dropping by today and Happy Stamping !!
