I know we don't normally celebrate Halloween here as much as is done in the USA but I felt inspired to make the oldest grandchildren some little treat boxes! They were made using the wonderful Stampin Up Curvy Keepsake die, and their very appropriately named Pumpkin Pie cardstock! I just stamped assembled the box then whilst it was still flat, stamped them with the SU woodgrain stamp in Tim Holtz Aged Mahogany Distress ink. I cut some leaves from some Sizzix dies to embellish and tied them up with Stampin Up Bakers Twine.
I didn't want the boxes to look scary in any way so no spooky faces or anything! The eldest grandchild is only two and a half! I filled the boxes with a few small pumpkin wrapped chocolates, a pumpkin balloon, plastic spider and finger puppet. The kids loved them!
I will be using this Curvy Keepsake Die a lot over the coming weeks, as I intend to make some little gift boxes for the Christmas Tree and the Christmas Table!
I hope you have enjoyed this post, thank you for looking and I would be very happy to receive your comments.
