Halloween Treats

Here's a cute project I found on Erica Cerwin's blog.  I made these for my son and daughter-in-law:

These little boxes each hold 3 Ghirardelli chocolate squares.   They are simple to make and fun to decorate.

Here's very brief tutorial:

Start with a piece of card stock, measuring 5-1/2" x 7".
On the 5-1/2" side, score at 3/4", 1-1/2", 4" and 4-3/4".
One the 7" side, score at 2-3/8" and 4-5/8".

You will have a piece that looks like this:

Now you will cut off the four corners, and cut along the score lines left so it looks like this:

Using your Project Life Corner Rounder, round off the corners (not the little strips, but the other 8 corners).

Fold in the strips and adhere, making a little box:

Place your Ghirardelli squares inside, and using a bone folder, lightly curve the longer pieces; fold over:

The belly band is a piece of card stock or Designer Series Paper (I used the Neutrals Paper Stack), measuring 2" x 8".

I tied some Black Bakers Twine around the belly band, and then cut a 1-3/4" circle, using Pumpkin Pie.  I stamped the witch from Spooky Fun, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Stampin' Write markers.  Then she was cut using the matching Halloween Scenes Edgelits dies and adhered with Dimensionals.

The sentiment, also from Spooky Fun, was stamped and snipped, and added to my belly band.  The finishing touch was a Halloween Night Enamel Dot.

So cute...and so yummy!
