Tricks & Treats

Today's project start with the color palette from the ColourQ challenge #105 and the City Crafter Challenge to create something 3D.

I recently purchased at a garage sale a set of take out boxes which I thought would be great treat boxes. I started with that and created a Halloween Treat box.

This is the treat box with a candy treat wrapped in tulle in the box. 

I took a second photo to showcase the treat box without anything in it.


  1. Trace sides of box onto white cardstock. Cut out and repeat to get all four pieces. 
  2. Remove top flaps from the box. 
  3. Stamp background using an Impression Obsession Cover A Card with  Adirondack Cool Peri -  and Memento Pear Tart.
  4. Stamp Hero Arts tree and spider using black ink on purple background. Draw line using black gel pen. 
  5. Sponge edges on all pieces using brown dye ink. 
  6. Stamp Artistic Outpost bats onto green background using black ink. 
  7. Trim out with brown pom poms. 
  8. Stain seam binding using glimmer mists. Tie on handle. 
  9. Stamp tag with Hero Arts Spider Web and Trick or Treat sentiment. Sponge edges of tag. Add ribbon. 
I also used a sketch from Our Daily Bread Scrapbooking Challenge to create a layout with the colors. 

The background was glimmer misted with a variety of the colors. Then the edges were heat embossed using golden sand - Stampendous.  The stamps are all Our Daily Bread.

The image was colored with a combination of dye inks and glimmer mists.

Here is the color inspiration:
 Here is the layout from ODBD
