Make it Monday – Halloween Square Pillow Box Bat

October 19, 2015


This is a cute, simple project that you can make for your friends, teachers or kids! AND they hide TREATS! Who doesn’t love a spooky Halloween treat?!?          Using the Square Pillow Box Thinlits Dies and a few other tools, you can throw these together for a cute surprise!

Here are some tips:


Cut out the Oval using the Ovals Collection Framelits in Black Glimmer Paper. (I used the 3rd smallest oval).


Use the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch to cut out the wings for the bat. Just eyeball it.

You can also see this cute idea on page 46 of your Holiday Catalog.

It’s pretty simple! Let me know if you have any questions. Enjoy your creativity today!

I had such a fun time at Founder’s Circle and got some really cute trades to boot!

I thought I would share some Halloween ideas. I love the ones using the Thinlits Cards Dies…I added pictures of the insides of those so you could see how cute they are.

Have a great day!!!

Spider Web Textured Impressions Embossing Folder Die

October 28, 2010

I received these items from my Demonstrator Get Together last month and I thought they were so inventive! Using a Embossing folder is an easy way to jazz up any project! And the great thing is…they're only $7.95! In honor of Halloween, here is the Spider Web Embossing folder that is featured in the Holiday Mini Catalog.

What a cute idea to use on a party napkin! It'll make a splash!

And on vellum…it really makes it pop!

We've had so many requests for instructions on the sanitizer covers. I hope these will be clear…

First, cut a piece of cardstock to 2 x 9 1/2 inches, Score the cardstock at 3 1/4, 4 1/4, 7 1/2, and 8 1/2. This will be the main part of the box.

Cut another piece of cardstock to 5 x 1 1/2 inches. Score this piece at 1/2, 1 1/2, 3 1/2, and 4 1/2 inches one way and 1/4 and 1 1/4 inches the other way. Cut off the four corner pieces so that the sections measure 1 1/2 inches, 2 inches, and 1 1/2 inches.

Punch out an oval using Stampin' Up!'s 1 3/4" x 7/8" Oval Punch.

Attach the smaller piece to the larger piece of cardstock using Sticky Strip.Put your Sticky Strip on the 1/4 inch scored tab.

Put Sticky Strip on the rest of the project as shown.

Assemble as shown.

This project was originally made by Renee Coburn. She found the hand sanitizers at Bath and Body Works. I hope that helps! As always, please let me know if you have any questions.

Treat Boxes

October 15, 2010

I love treats. Especially smartly-packaged treats. Here are some cute ideas using Stampin' Up! products.

To make the basic triangle shaped box, cut a piece of cardstock to 8 1/2 x 4 inches. Score the cardstock longways at 4 1/4 inches. On each short end find your half way point (2 inches) and mark it with a pencil. Score from the pencil mark to the outside of the 4 1/4 inch score line in a diagonal line. Repeat 3 times. Fold into a box and let your creative juices flow! Let me know if you have any questions!
