I went with the CURVY KEEPSAKE BOX THINLIT paired with HALLOWEEN NIGHTS SPECIALTY DSP and SPOOKY FUN.

To create the treat, you only need to die cut part of the CURVY KEEPSAKE THINLIT.  I did a diagram to show you where I placed my paper.

After you cut the two pieces, simply add fast fuse to the small bottom flap and adhere together.

I kept the stamping simple so this could be easily duplicated for a party favor and trick or treating.  The sentiment was stamped on a die cut from the MINI TREAT BAG THINLIT and a couple of ghosts were added as well as a spider and his web.

A peppermint patty fits nicely inside, I added a little SNAIL to hold it in then tied the top shut with HALLOWEEN NIGHT BAKER’S TWINE.

Halloween Treat Ideas

I’ve compiled a bunch of great ideas for Halloween treats so you can prep for upcoming parties.  You can never start too soon!

Spooky Fun by becreativewithnicole.com

This first one is a card and treat together.  I used the BAKER’S BOX and HALLOWEEN NIGHTS DSP to create a fun BOX to put treats in.  This comes together so quickly since the DSP does a lot of the work for you!

sppoky-fun-treat-bag-becreativewithnicole-com

For this treat, create a MINI TREAT BAG with DSP and stuff it with goodies.  In this type of bag I like to put a little pad of paper along with pencils and stickers for kids to have something other than candy.  So many options with the awesome HALLOWEEN NIGHTS DSP.

mini-treat-bags-becreativewithnincole-com

The MINI TREAT BAG thinlit can also be used to make half sized treat bags.  These are perfect for pixie stix, pencil or Twizler.  I decorated this set with COOKIE CUTTER HALLOWEEN and it came together so quickly!  Again, the DSP does a lot of the design work for you.

jar-of-haunts-treat-becreativewithnicole-com

If you don’t have die cuts to make the previous treats, why not make something simple and do a matchbox style treat.

jar-of-haunts-treat

This is super easy to make and do multiples of.  What a fun way to give a treat at school or to hand out to everyone you know around town.  Check HERE for the dimensions if you’d like to make your own.

Would you like to have holiday gift and card ideas designed for you and ready to create??  The OCTOBER MINI SESSION from Create with Connie and Mary does just that!  We have 5 FULL TUTORIALS for you, all you do is sit down and craft!  The session opened today so you can see all these fabulous ideas NOW!!!  Just go to CREATE WITH CONNIE AND MARY and join in the fun!!!

Matchbox Treat

One of the things I love about Halloween is making lots of fun treats to give away.  Today’s idea is matchbox style treat featuring JAR OF HAUNTS.

jar-of-haunts-treat-becreativewithnicole-com

These little treats are not only cute, but easy to make.  The Basic Black card stock measured 7 1/4″ x 3″ and was scored at 2 3/4″ and 5 3/4″.  For embellishment, I used the Jack-o-Lantern from JAR OF HAUNTS and HALLOWEEN NIGHT SPECIALTY DSP.

jar-of-haunts-treat

Inside is a candy with a fun sentiment.  A great way to give a little treat or to even advertise your business.  Slip a business card in with the treat and hand these out everywhere you go!

jar-of-haunts-treat-becreativewithnicole-com

When I get a little time this week I think I’ll expand on this idea and do a bunch for everyone at work.  Cookie Cutter Halloween and Spooky Fun would be a couple of other great stamps to use with this idea.

Don’t forget about more great ideas that will be going live Tuesday is the OCTOBER MINI SESSION from Create with Connie and Mary.  We have FULL tutorials for you, all the work is done…you just sit down and craft!  For more information, go to Create with Connie and Mary.  I hope you’ll join us!

my-paper-pumpkin-becreativewithnicole-com

Total cuteness, right??  This kit had 16 test tubes for treats!!!!  YES…16!!  It makes doing gifts or party favors easy as pie!  There is a great stamp set to use for lots of other projects as well.

See how cute this is!!  It’s nice to have something super easy to assemble where all the work is done for you.  Speaking of that….have you checked out the Mini Sessions from Create with Connie and Mary??  Each month we have 5 FULL tutorials so all the work is done, you just have to sit down and create!

Creation Station Blog Hop: Halloween is to Die For!

Creation Station header

Welcome to the Creation Station Blog Hop for October!  This month we are sharing Halloween projects and cards.  We have tons of ideas to share, so be sure to hop all the way around to see what everyone has created!

mini-treat-bags-becreativewithnincole-comI combined several products for my half size Mini Treat Bags, love how everything works together so well!

cookie-cutter-skeleton-becreativewithnicole-com

Half size mini treat bags are super fun to make and prefect party favors!  I kept my designs fairly simple so you could use these ideas and make them in multiples for your parties this year.

cookie-cutter-mummy-becreativewithnicole-com

Using COOKIE CUTTER HALLOWEEN and the coordinating COOKIE CUTTER BUILDER PUNCH make this something that would be simple to crank out a bunch of in a short amount of time.  I kept the stamping simple by choosing the characters that only needed black ink.  Just stamp and punch!

spooky-fun-ghosts-becreativewithnicole-com

Make your treats quickly by doing all of your steps assembly line style.  If you want to make several of one design, cut all your paper and assemble the mini treat bags then doing all your stamping to complete the treat.

spooky-fun-witch-becreativewithnicole-com

Let your Designer Series Paper do the work for you!  I didn’t have to do anything extra for my backgrounds, the fabulous HALLOWEEN NIGHTS DSP did the work for me!  I just added die cuts and bling!

Creation Station: New Holiday Products

Creation Station header

Welcome to the Creation Station Blog Hop for September!  This month we are sharing cards and projects with our favorite products from the NEW 2016 Holiday Catalog.  We have tons of ideas to share, so be sure to hop all the way around to see everyone has created!

Spooky Fun by becreativewithnicole.com

I personally look forward to the new Halloween sets and accessories every year.  It’s such a fun holiday to create cards and treats for.  I am loving the fun SPOOKY FUN Bundle that has a great stamp set and thinlits.

spooky fun bundle

My first idea was a fun little Mini Treat Bag card.  This was SUPER easy to put together yet so cute!

Spooky Fun Mini Treat Bag becreativewithnicole.com

The treat bag was made with the HALLOWEEN NIGHT DSP and the MINI TREAT BAG THINLIT.  A few die cuts and a just a little bit of stamping later, I had a fun card ready to go!  Wouldn’t it be great to give this card with a treat sized bag of M&M’s or some other little candy tucked inside.  With the clean and simple design of this card, you could easily make a bunch of these for a party!

Spooky Fun Treat becreativewithnicole.com

This sweet little BAKER’S BOX is another quick and easy way to give spooky little treats.  The box is quickly and easily embellished with the HALLOWEEN NIGHT DSP.  I cut out a strip of the houses and wrapped it all the way around the box…easy peasy!  A bat and a simple sentiment make this another quick and simple treat to make for lots of trick or treater’s this year.

Spooky Fun by becreativewithnicole.com
