#219 Halloween Treats Blog Hop Takeout Box
Hi everyone!!! Welcome to the much anticipated Halloween Treat Boxes Blog Hop hosted by Sylvia!! If you are here from Sylvia's blog http://www.bellascrapbookdesigns.blogspot.com/ then you are in then right spot! I was so excited when Sylvia asked me to join her awesome hop because I LOVE this hop theme and I can't wait to see some real candy like what I will be showing you below :)
For my project I made a Chinese Takeout style treat box to hold my most all time favorite treats.... Reese's!!!! I stamped the sentiment with Crafty Sprouts "TOTALLY WITCHN"' stamp set, but I messed up because I didn't stamp the sentiment until after I assembled the entire box, ugh I'm such a dork sometimes haha oh well!! The spiderweb border is from my Martha Stewart spiderweb border punch that I got from Michaels. This very cute bat is an SVG file from The Digi Bistro SVG shop called PICK YOUR POISON, it's a great SVG set that comes with 18 spooky and cute files!
I got this Takeout box file also from The Digi Bistro SVG shop and it's called "Treat Boxes" and has 5 different style 3D boxes and bags and will be available real soon!
Here's the top view when it's closed. The measurements on my SCAL 2 where 11x11 inches. Can you guess how I made the green handles???? Scroll down and I'll tell you my deepest darkest secret!!
Mmmmmmmmm Reese's my fav! Here's a pic of it open it fits 5 total Reese's wow!! Ok that's too many Reese's for me to give away to someone so I think I'm going to keep them myself... Oh wait hold that thought!! LOL!! My hubby and son just hijacked 2 of my Reese's oh no!!! (that really happened just now haha!)
Ok so I made the green handles with 3 regular sized paper clips!!! I knew I had to come up with a wire type of handle to make it look more realistic. I straightened all 3 paper clips and used my wire cutter all in one tool that I got from Joann's to "bend" and loop on each side. I then poked holes on the 2 un-embellished sides and placed the paper clip handles inside.
Proof it fits 5 candies!!
Here's another close up of the other side I used the same bat, just a different sentiment oh and googly eyes!
