Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - Treat Holders

Welcome to the October 2019 Edition of the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! You'll see projects from around the world--but I'm in Colorado Springs, Colorado. (Note: I can only sell to customers in the US, so any prices are in USD)

We generally hop the first Friday of each month, and our theme for today is Treat Holders! My project today features products from the Monster Bash Suite Bundle in the 2019 Holiday Catalog. You can check out the video below for a quick peek at the Suite! {you'll find all Product Purchase Links below the Blog Roll near the bottom of the post!}

I totally pressed the Easy Button again with my project, by using the Coffin Boxes for my Treat Holders. They are already cut and scored for you, and they come in a package of 12, so all you need is a little glue and some time for assembly. I like using the Tombow Liquid Glue to put these together.

The Coffin Boxes are designed as a box with a lid, so when I put these together, I pull out one box piece and one lid piece. Then I fold all the score lines on both pieces, including all the tabs. Then, I put adhesive on just one piece to start. I use a very small amount of adhesive, and I live in Colorado where it is dry, so I want to only work with one piece at a time to ensure the glue stays tacky. And then, at the bottom of the lid, I actually snipped up two score lines and used that as a flap to attach the lid to the box. I just put glue on the underside of that little flap, put the lid back on the box, and pressed the flap to adhere it to the box. I couldn't get the pictures to come out, so I just made a quick video to walk you through the assembly.

Now, once you play with these, you may find that some of your decorating may need to be done PRIOR to assembling, especially if you'd like to use the NEW Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder on the lid. I added everything to the lid after assembly, but I did tweak the lid just a bit. For starters, I put some ribbon at the top, so the lid could be pulled off easily. I stapled the ribbon, then covered the staples with little bats from one of the papers.

In case you skipped the video, here's one of my treats from the other day's POST, inside the coffin!

This might seem like a weird way to close this Treat Holder, but there is a method to my madness! This Treat Holder is actually one small part of another bigger project...I'll show you that one tomorrow. If you love Halloween, you're gonna DIE for this project! Hahahaaa...

  1. These are super cute and spooky! Great idea to make a hinged box and I appreciate the video tutorial. I didn't even know that you could use Tombow as a repositionable glue when it's dry! Thanks for sharing x

  2. These are super cute...spooky feeling, but too cute to be scared! Now I have to come back to see your final big project!

  3. The hinged idea is brillant. And the ribbon pull tab to open it too. Very cute coffin.
