Halloween Mini Hershey Bar Holders

Finally....I have the directions with photos. I would have posted it yesterday, but everything I touched, I ruined. I couldn't measure, I couldn't cut them correctly, and then the battery went dead in my camera while I was trying to photograph : ( ugh! (I've deleted the original post, that had no directions, so it's not so confusing). Plus, the one on the left, the skull is upside down, but I put it in the photo anyway.

1. 10" x 2-1/2" card stock. Score at 7/16", 1", 3-1/4", 3-3/4", 7-1/4", 7-3/4". I hope you can see the score lines.

2. Use the Word Window punch between the 7/16" score line and the 1" score line.

3. Fold on score lines.

4. Cut a sheet of Cast a Spell Designer Paper 8-14/16" x 2-1/4" and attach to black card stock with snail, beginning on the opposite side where you punched with the Word Window. I didn't score the DSP, since it's thinner than the card stock and folds easily.

5. Attach a 2-1/2" piece of sticky strip between the edge and the 7/16" score line.

6. Fold again on score lines , fold over and attach sticky strip to the inside of holder.

7. Insert candy bar.

8. Fold lid over. Make a tag and adhere. You could use velcro to hold it closed, but I used snail. I thought a class of 4th graders aren't going to want to save these...they'll just tear them open for the candy : ) On all of these I used the Spooky Treats rub ons.

I hope you enjoy making these and if you have any questions, please let me know.

Tootsie Roll Treat Bag

Halloween Tootsie Roll Treat Bag

This treat bag was made using the Bag with Scallops die cut. I cut a sheet of Cast A Spell DSP 2-1/2 x 12" and ran it through my big shot. I used a narrow piece because I'm not assembling with the sides of the bag and didn't want to waste any paper. I attached one end of the Tootsie Roll inside the bag with a little bit of snail. I then used the same DSP and turned it over to use the coordinating side cut 2-1/4" x 1-3/4" and used a Spooky Treats Rub on. I then cut a 5" piece of black & white grosgrain ribbon (love this ribbon) folded it in half and attached to the back of the label with snail and then attached it to the bag over the flap to hold it closed.

I know it didn't take longer than 5 minutes. I know I could make 20 in about an hour. These may be the treats I send to school and save the Hershey bars for me : ) So, if your looking for a little something to send to school this Halloween, you might want to give these a try.

Thanks for stopping by!

Halloween Treat Box

Halloween Treat Box 2

I made these little treat boxes with the #2 Box Die, didn't score the lid and left it open. Punched a hole for the handle...really fast and easy. I'm trying to decide what to make for my sons class for Halloween and can't decide. I have a few more ideas and I'll be posting them over the next couple days.

If you have any questions, please let me know.
