Another "Halloweenie" project

Here is a super quick and easy Halloween treat.

It uses a clear pillow box to do most of the work!

The supplies and stamps for the decorative sleeve are from the Happy Halloweenie Stamp kit.

Supplies from the kit include:
  • Wicked Whimsy Paper - 3" wide and 9 inches long
  • Raven cardstock for mattes
  • Peter Pumpkin and Happy Halloweenie stamps.
You will also need:
To make the sleeve:

Score the Wicked Whimsy paper at 3" and again at 7" and fold and to make the sleeve. Pop up the pillow box and wrap the sleeve around, adhering the overlap in the back.

You can make the sleeve as wide as you wish, but a 3" wide sleeve will allow you to get 5 sleeves from each 12"x12" sheet of patterned paper. 4 vertical and one horizontal (cut the horizontal one first!).

Stamp and color Peter Pumpkin and cut or punch him out in a circle. The circle in the sample is about 2" in diameter and was cut with a nestibility die. Add a scalloped circle matte in Raven if desired. Adhere the circle to the sleeve with foam tape at the top and bottom.

Stamp, cut out and matte the Happy Halloweenie sentiment. Adhere it below the circle.


These clear boxes are a generous size (about 5" long and 1" thick at the center). They can easily hold a collection of little treats also.

Happy Halloweenie!
