Tricks, treats and the new Equal Triangle Clear Stamps are ready for Halloween...are you? Hello again, Jean Okimoto here with a simple treat wrapper for your favorite little tricksters.
Who would have thought the Stitched Bump Border die could be used for a trio of candy wrappers?
Trim 8-½" x 11" white cardstock to 8" x 11". Score and fold it lengthwise at 4" and cut it into two 4"x 5-½" pieces. Place the Stitched Bump Border die just below cut edges and cut through both layers of each half. Score both sides of the folded cardstock ¼" away from the original 4" scoreline.
Cut it into three sections of varying widths.
Stamp them with random, overlapping layers of the cool triangles and diamonds from the Equal Triangle Clear Stamps Set with Sunshine and Nocturne VersaFine Clair. This combination of stamps and inks creates crisp, sharp images. The vibrant inks take a few seconds to dry - then look artsy and dimensional with very little effort.
Fold the bottoms along the scorelines to create a ½" wide base. Punch a hole through the top.
Use doublestick tape or a glue dot to attach the candy inside the wrapper. Two pieces of Miniature KitKats will fit in the widest wrapper. Tie the tops with orange tulle. Fold the ends of the tulle together lengthwise and trim it at a sharp angle for a zig-zaggy edge.
Halloween candies come in a wide range of shapes and sizes. Stitch Bump Borders is perfect for that because it cuts the top edge and lets you adjust the height of the treat wrapper. Make some wrappers with your favorite candy. Don't wait till the 31st - share them with co-workers now or tuck them into family lunches for a sweet surprise. Then go out and buy more candy!
Thanks for visiting - have fun with this project! Enjoy randomly layering the stamps - no rules about composition, white space or visual balance here.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at Impress on Saturday. We're making five Halloween cards and a treat wrapper in the STASH CARDS - FRIGHTFUL AND DELIGHTFUL class at 10:30. Then it's COLORS OF CHRISTMAS at 1:30.
