Night 13: 13 Nights of Halloween Series -Coffin of Treats

Hey everyone.....

Tonight's last project for our 13 Nights of Halloween series, is a special treat holder that would be great for grandkids, your kids, nieces, nephews, or anyone you would like to give a few treSeries, Introducing the Coffin of Treats.

This cute little treat holder can hold quite a few treats or even a small little gift.
As you can see it is fairly deep, giving lots of room for those special treats and gifts you would like to give.

The following are the easy to follow instructions and a product list below that so you know just what you need to create this fun project.

Coffin of Treats Instructions
1) Cut out two houses using the Home Sweet Home Framelits in crumbcake cardstock, or you can choose a wood pattern from the fun wood texture paper pack if you are looking for using current product for this same look.
2) If you are stamping, you will also cut two small strips of crumbcake cardstock the lenght of the short end of the little house.
3) You will then take Basic Gray ink and the Hardwood background stamp and stamp both the fronts of the houses. These will create a more spooky feel to the Coffin.
4) You will then trim off one of the flaps on the bottom of the house of the top piece that creates the open door of the Coffin.
5) You then add some fast fuse or strong adhesive to all the tabs except the two that will be closing the door on the top.
6) Next you add the two strips (and yes add some woodgrain to both those pieces as well). Glue dots work best for this or multipurpose glue. Also, make sure you tilt the wood planks a bit when you add them.
7) Once you have this all together you can add some enamel shapes to accent the front of the coffin.
8) The last piece is to stamp a cute ghost using the Sweet Home stamp set in black ink.
Make sure add lots of goodies for those special people you are giving treats too.

Product List
Thanks so much for visiting tonight. I hope you enjoyed the variety of projects and will join me again soon. Wishing everyone a safe and spooky Halloween. Have a great evening!

Night 12: 13 Nights of Halloween Series -Stampin' Up! Style

Hey everyone!  We are just one night away from the end of our series.  I wanted to show you just how easy it is to take all the great projects we have journeyed through over the past 12 nights and show you how easy it is to create home décor pieces.

This is an old artist tray that Stampin' Up! offered a few years back.  I love the versatility and the fact that I can create any theme with it. You can truly do so much with frames, artist trays, and just about any type of home décor piece with Stampin' Up! supplies.

I have attached a list of the products that I used to create this fun piece of home décor for some spooky fun. Below this list, I also shared a great idea that just so happened to come out in my Stampin' Up! Tuesday updates this morning. Scroll past the product list to see....

Product List
Here you can see how a simple frame became the perfect work of art tabletop décor to help spook our trick or treaters. One more night to go, with one more project and a special treat over on my Facebook Group Page.  See you all tomorrow my dear mortal friends.....A little Haunted Mansion Disney fun....;-)

Night 11: 13 Nights of Halloween - Stampin' Up! Style

Welcome to night 11 of our 13 Nights of Halloween series.  We only have two more nights of fun together and I hope you are looking forward to them.  This cute treat box will allow you to put lots of goodies for teachers, friends, or even your special trick or treaters together in one adorable spot.
First you will take the piece of designer series paper (DSP) from the Spooky Night pack and cut one tree out of the tree page.
After you have done this put together your pizza box.  This is super easy to do.  You will also cut a piece of pumpkin pie cardstock measuring 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"
Next you will choose a pattern of your choice from the spooky night DSP pack and cut 4 -1 1/4" x 3/4" pieces like you see in this picture.
Next put your tear and tape in strips on the backside of the dsp you are not going to use for your mini pizza box design.
You will next apply dimensionals on the back of the tree dsp piece.
Next you will adhere the tree to the pumpkin pie piece of cardstock and then adhere it to the pizza box. (sorry for the little blurriness in this picture)
Next you will adhere the strips of dsp to all four sides of the pizza box.
Now you want to find the sheet that has these fun pumpkins on it, and fussy cut them out so you have three.
Last you will use dimensionals to pop up your three little pumpkins sitting on the tree!
I hope you have enjoyed this quick and easy project.  Just two more nights and our series will be over.  You don't want to miss these last two nights of projects.  Stay tuned for more spooky fun. Thanks for stopping by.

NOTE: Pumpkin Pie cardstock is recommended but you may use any color cardstock for the mat of the tree.
