Tricks and Treats

Hi all! Welcome to our very first video tutorial here on Violets & Sunshine! This is something that I've been wanting to do for awhile, but found the whole thing a bit intimidating. Nevertheless, a few days ago I threw caution to the wind and now here we are.

Today we'll be making these cute little Halloween Treat holders:

(Here's how it opens) 

Here are the creative ingredients:
6 x 6-inch piece of patterned paper
(I'm using Close To My Heart's Scaredy Cat)
1 x 3-inch piece of coordinating patterned paper
(I just used the back of the Scaredy Cat paper)
1 2-inch scalloped circle cut from Black Cardstock
1 1 1/2-inch circle cut from Purple Glitter Paper
1 1 1/4-inch circle cut from White Daisy Cardstock
(I use Memento Tuxedo Black, 
but Stāz-On or Black Archival Ink would work, too.)
Stamp Set:

Now on with the tutorial:

So as I mentioned in the tutorial, I have kits available for making these cute little boxes. Each kit includes (6) 6x6-inch sheets of patterned paper, (6) 1x3-inch pieces of patterned paper, (6) scalloped circle embellishments, and (6) hook & loop closures.

All cutting, scoring, and stamping have been done for you. I have also added adhesive to the back of the closures and embellishments. So, all you will need to do is fold, stick, and add your own candy. Each kit will make 6 treat boxes. If you need more than one kit, please click on the drop down menu when purchasing below:

If you are local and would like to pick up your kits in person, the prices will be adjusted to reflect the savings on shipping.

So I really hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Please leave comments and let me know what you think. I'd also be interested in hearing what techniques or project you would like to see tutorials on in the future.
