Little Treats Happy Halloween Gift Box

Your Creative Connection

Welcome to Your Creative Connection; a bi-monthly creative showcase which comes to you on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday/Thursday of each month.  Your Creative Connection came together from a group of eight global friends wanting to give you a worldwide connection to creativity.  We hope to inspire you to connect with us as we share papercraft ideas using Stampin’ Up! products.  Each showcase will have a theme, and we will ‘travel’ around the world to connect with our creative friends.

This week's Your Creative Connection theme is DIES TO DIE FOR.  So for this theme, I chose the Little Treat Box Dies (and coordinating Little Treats stamp set) because I love, love, love simple-to-create boxes and I can't go past any dies that include a gift box - I think I have them all!  As a play on the "to die for" part of this theme, I decided to create a Halloween-inspired treat...

The Magic in this Night Designer Series Paper was the colour inspiration for my Halloween gift.  The treat box was die-cut from Blackberry Bliss cardstock and then a strip of designer paper wrapped around (the Blackberry Bliss patterned paper with creepy, life-like, bulbous spiders on it).  I also used the scalloped tag die from the Little Treat Box Dies for the silver-embossed words for the front.  I finished this ghoulish treat with a spider die-cut from Silver Foil and some web-like silver Metallic Mesh Ribbon.
