Halloween Treat Holders

I decided to make some Halloween treat holders for the Scor-Pal More than One Score Challenge - Treat Holders. I am also entering it in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.

These are a matchbook style so they were so quick to make. I started with a page in the Witch's Dust paper pad. It is quite thick, so it's almost like cardstock. It measured 4 1/2" by 6 1/2" and I cut it in half to get two pieces of 2 1/4" by 6 1/2". It is reversible so I made one of each.

With the 6 1/2" side at the top, I scored at 3/4", 3 1/2" and 4". I folded up the 3/4" and stapled near the middle of the edge to make the bottom of the 'matchbook'. I folded along the other two score lines to make the top and front.

I stamped the two images and fussy cut the one with the bat. The spider image was cut with the Creative Memories circle cutting system. I matted it with another circle cut from orange cardstock. I adhered these to the front with some foam squares.

I filled each one with a treat sized candy bar.

Supplies used:
Recollections Witch’s Dust Halloween paper pad
Hampton Art Happy Halloween stamp set
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Creative Memories Circle cutting system

yellow marker, foam squares, white and orange cardstock from my stash
