Who wouldn't LOVE to get some Halloween treats in this cute little box? This is made using the Big Shot Die Cut Machine and the exclusive Stampin' Up! Scallop Envelope Die. The box is actually 4 envelopes, connected with Sticky Strip! How cute is that??? I wish I could say that I was the one who thought of the idea, but I can't. I finally got a few minutes to play in my scrap room this morning and this was the project I worked on. This will be one of our Big Shot Club projects this month.

This little box begins with Pumpkin Pie Cardstock -- you can cut all 4 envelopes needed to make this box from one sheet of cardstock. I inked the edges of the scallops just to add a little dimension. I then added a strip of Ghostly Greetings DSP and a length of 1/4" Black Grosgrain Ribbon under one of the flaps. The cute little tag was created using the Scallop Circle Punch (inked edges) and the 1", 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" Circle punches. I stamped the Frankenstein image, from Batty for You, twice on Whisper White Cardstock -- once in black and once in Kiwi Kiss and then punched them out and assembled the tag. It is attached to the bow with a loop of Silver Elastic Cord. A little cello bag with candy treats finished off this cute and fast gift!
That's it for today! I want to thank everyone for their very kind expressions of concern following the flooding that we experienced on Sunday. Things are gradually drying out and soon this will all be behind us! It's not going to keep me from stamping long!
A few days remain to order the Designer Series Paper and Ribbon Sampler Kits. This is a great way to get a little bit of everything without having to buy complete packages of paper or spools of ribbon. Deadline for ordering the Sampler Kits is Sunday, September 21st at 11:59 p.m. (central time). I will place the order with Stampin' Up! on 9-22 and you will receive your kits in the mail about 10 days after that. Click on the links above for more information.
Check back soon for more inspiration! Until then, blessings, Gretchen
