Well, Stampin' Up! was my first stamp love, and my only one for years. But then the young and attractive PTI came along and turned my head. Since then there have been others, I admit it, but you never forget your first, right? LOL! SU is my go to company for Halloween stamps, probably because I have so many and I can't bear to part with them, even though they are all retired now, except for this one I just got, called Sweet Centers, from the Holiday Mini Catalog, and it's actually an all-season set. The neat thing about it is you can order treat cups that fit into the centers of the images to fill with candy or
confetti or anything you like! But instead of using one of those, I decided to try a mini pizza box. You can find the directions HERE. Everything I did to the box I did before assembly. I used Pumpkin Pie CS and used my coluzzle to cut a hole in the lid. I cut a square of retired SU Halloween DP, coluzzle'd it and added Lovely Lilac eyelets at the corners. I stamped my focal image in Kiwi Kiss on white CS and punched out a 1 3/4" circle in the middle. I cut a layer of Lovely Lilac CS and coluzzle'd a slightly hole in the center so it would show through the main focal piece. Then I used black Staz-on on a square from an
old PTI box. I adhered this to the back of the LL piece and adhered the whole thing to the top of the box. Next I stamped images from two retired sets on the edges of the box. "Happy Halloween" is from Spooktacular Greetings, and the border is from Happy Fright Night. I used Sticky Strip (aka Terrifically Tacky Tape or red-line tape) to assemble the box. This box is 4" square and 1" deep. That's a lot of candy corn baby! I'm thinking more along the lines of a big chocolate chip cookie or maybe a large thin brownie! What do you think? This project went together in a snap and was really fun to make. I hope you enjoyed it too. Thanks for looking!
