Halloween Treats

Hi There ... I know I should work on my staging because it will make my projects looks so much more polished but it just seems like it's all I can do to get things photographed and uploaded.

While cleaning out my overhead at work I found a couple of left over Halloween Treat baskets I made for my co-workers last year.


These are incredibly easy to make so I thought I would share how to make them.

Supplies: Card stock, scallop punch, bat w/ sentiment & pumpkin faces (Stampin Up!), Shimmery paper for the ghost (Unknown), Fraidy Cat punch (Martha Stewart), Candy Corn image (Inkahootz!), Ghost #2 and Pumkins #2 dies (Sizzix), Ink (Stampin Up! & Memories), Circle Punch (Marvy).

I generally use a 6 x 6 sheet of card stock because this makes a decent size little treat basket.
Score at 2 inches and 4 inches ... turn ... score at 2 inches and 4 inches
Fold along the score lines for nice sharp creases. Use your bone folder if necessary.
Cut as shown by dotted...












Use a strong adhesive to hold the basket in shape... decorate as desired!

Enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by
