Trick or Tweet Take Out Box

Hello and thank you for stopping by to hang out with me! Happy Thursday!! Well, today I have a fun little treat box your little ghouls and goblins will love! It uses the adorable Take Out die set from the Holiday Catalog and the ALL time favorite background stamp, Buffalo Check! Oh how I LOVE the Buffalo Check background stamp! I so hope this stamp stay's around for a very looooooong time!

Anyhoo, this little treat box is a breeze to re-create. It requires only a half sheet of cardstock making it very economical to mass produce since you get 2 boxes per sheet of cardstock and they're just plain fun. 

To make this treat box, I stamped a half sheet of Highland Heather cardstock measuring 8.5" x 5.5" with the Buffalo Check background stamp and Gorgeous Grape ink. (I love this color combination!) In order to completely cover my half sheet with the Buffalo Check pattern, I stamped one half of the half sheet at a time, taking care to line up the edges. (This would be a great time to pull out your Stamparatus - however, I chose to do mine the old fashioned way, laying the stamp face up, ink it up, and place the cardstock over the inked stamp and rub)

I then cut 2 of the Take Out Box shapes from the half sheet and assembled the box per package instructions. (be sure to use a strong adhesive such as Tear n Tape to ensure a good hold) Add the candy you would like to give out and close up the box using the notches created when you cut out the box shapes. Then wrap with the Granny Apple Green ribbon and tie into a bow.

Next, stamp the elephant from the Trick or Tweet stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and color in with the Stampin' Blends, Smoky Slate, Highland Heather, and Basic Black duos. Punch the image out with the 1.75" circle punch and layer it to a piece of Gorgeous Grape cardstock punched out with the Starburst punch. Add to the side of the box with a couple of Stampin' Dimensionals. Next, stamp the sentiment from the Spooky Sweets stamp set, "No Tricks, just Treats" in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and die cut with one of the tag shapes from the Take Out Box framelits and using the piercing tool, poke a hole in the top center. Thread some white Baker's Twine through it and tie to the Granny Apple Green ribbon.

I hope you enjoyed this project today and I hope it inspires you to not only create those adorable little treats for your ghosts, ghouls and goblins, but also encourages you to use those background stamps for more than just card backgrounds. Use them to add interest to your 3D projects. So, pull out those background stamps and see how else you can use them!

In the meantime, Happy Stamping,
