October Blog Hop My Favorite Punch

Good evening my crafty friends! Today is a great day!!! We're hopping with the ICS Design Team for a "MY FAVORITE PUNCH" themed hop.  

It's also Day 6 of The 13 Days of Halloween Treats!! Welcome everyone to my annual Halloween Treat Holder series!  Each weekday for 13 days, I bring a new Halloween Treat to you.  I do a YouTube LIVE at 8pm eastern time and post the tutorials and videos here on my blog!  We're not quite halfway through the days and will have them all done in plenty of time to recreate for your own little ghouls and boys! 

It worked out so perfectly to do this particular treat holder as the Day 6 project, because currently my favorite punch is the Witch Hat Punch! :-)  It's so cute! And I love the fussy cut witch's legs to go with it.   Both are part of the Bewitching Stamp & Punch Bundle in the Holiday 2022 Catalog. 

The colors on this tasty treat holder coordinate with the colors on the little M&M package. Isn't it cute?  I love tiny treats and this one is adorable!  I chose to make a matchbook treat holder for it. They're simple, easy, and SOOOOOO stinkin' cute!

To create this project, you'll need: 

* Poppy Parade Cardstock: 3 1/2" x 7" (scored on the LONG SIDE at: 1/2", 3 3/4", & 4")
* Basic Black Cardstock: 3 3/8" x 2 7/8" 
* Black & White Polka Dot DSP (from the Black and White Designer Series Paper): 3 1/4" x 2 3/4"
* Poppy Parade Cardstock: Die Cut with 3rd largest Scalloped Circle Die
* Basic White Cardstock: Die Cut with 4th largest Layering Circle Die
* Basic White Cardstock Scraps: to stamp & punch witch's hat and fussy cut feet, and spider
* 12" length of Black & White Gingham Ribbon
* Black Glitter Washi

Creating this little treat holder is super easy once you have all your pieces cut and ready.  I used a Blending Brush and Gorgeous Grape ink to color the Black & White Polka Dotted DSP and the starry band of the witch's hat.  

After I colored the hat band, I stamped stars in Memento ink.  I stamped the legs, colored them with Stampin' Blends and then fussy cut them out. It wasn't too bad and they look really cute! I used a little liquid glue to attach them to the back of the hat. 

When stapling the little flap at the bottom, be sure to put the staple near the folded edge, not the open edge. You want a bit of room to tuck the front flap into it. 

I applied some adhesive runner to the center of the front flap and attached the ribbon on. Then added the layered circles with Stampin' Dimensionals.  After I had glued the legs and the spider to the witch's hat, I attached it to the circle with dimensionals as well.  

To finish my project, I used Dark Basic Black Stampin' Blends marker to color a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels and add them to the front of the treat holder. They give it just a little bling!
