Haunted House Treat Holder with the Gift Bag Punch Board

Hi Stampers,

I know everyone is getting into the Halloween mood so this house is perfect for you. I don't know about you but I prefer "cutesy" to scary. Maybe because we live in a rural area and unless my husband is home with me at night I hear every noise and bump in the night. I was looking for a cute Halloween treat bag on Pinterest and found many templates but then I had a real "DUH" moment----use your Gift Bag Punch Board silly!!!! The "upstairs" I downsized from coloring pages to fit my bag. I made the medium sized bag and cut my cardstock 6 x 11. I have provided the template and punches on a pdf for you. The oval windows are made using Stampin' Up's retired oval punch. The smaller oval windows are the "legs" from the Cookie Cutter punch. The door is from Stampin' Up! retired Label punch. The small circle window is the 3/4" circle punch. Also, after you cut out the templates for the "upstairs" fold a piece of cardstock in half and place the top of the "upstairs" template on the fold line to get a front and back. Secure the upstairs to the bag with tear and tape. The ghosts are made with the wing of the retired bird punch. I also stamped Basic Gray with the Hardwood Stamp on the bag to look like wood siding. I sponged all the way around with Memento Black Ink. Don't forget to add your candy before securing the bag!!! You don't want to disappoint the kiddos!!!

I only made the one haunted house. There are 2 different "upstairs" you can use. 

I hope you try to make some of these for your trick or treaters!!!!

Thank you for stopping by!!

 


DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #241- Oh So Eclectic

#241

Hi Stampers,

This week's challenge is a Home Sweet Home challenge and I reached for my new stamp set Oh So Eclectic!!!! I have been wanting to use this and I also incorporated it into my summer theme for this week.

First off, I made my own DSP. I just took colors from the photo, inked up my stamps and went to town on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. I then traced my flip flop template and cut out by hand. I have even included a template for you and the text. I was stumped for finding just the right sentiment. So, Voila!!! I typed my own!!! Enjoy!!!

All I could find on the internet were flip flop templates that were too large for Stampin' Up! envelopes so I made my own. If you cut a card base of 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and fold in half, as if you were making a card, place the one template on the fold line, trace and then cut out. I hope this makes sense (?) As always, if you have any questions please feel free to shoot me an email. I would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Berry Burst is my FAV new in color this year but Lemon Lime Twist is a close second, so of course, I had to make one in those colors too!!! LOL I popped the toe thong up on dimensionals to give more of a 3D effect. I think these are so cute!!!
