Sorry to leave you all hanging for a few days.
I’m excited to share a project I created for this month’s Sr. DT challenge at Papertrey Ink. I’m not part of the group, but I was just lucky to get invited by Nichole to take part in this month’s challenge.
Nichole challenged the talented group of ladies (and me) to make some kind of Halloween treat packaging.
I came up with an envelope pocket holds a store-bought candy bar. Before I go on and on, let me just show you the project.
I really wanted my treat package to be fast, simple and easy to mass produce. Everything from the design to the pocket base was easy peasy.
The hardest part of my treat package was really making the pocket. Let me show you how.
To make one like mine, you are going to need an envelope, large circle punch and paper trimmer (or scissors).
First, seal the envelope.
Flip it over and cut a little off of it
Then, open up the envelope. Slide a circle punch partly inside it and punch out a half circle.
Now, you can go to town and decorate your pocket any way you want.
With a real simple design, you stamp out a ton of these in no time at all for a whole class of goblins. Also, depending on what Halloween treats you choose, you may want to use a different size envelope to make your pockets bigger or smaller.
Just in case you are wondering you are wondering about the products I used for my pocket and tag, let me share those with you. The stamps are from PTI’s Boo to You and 2009 Halloween Tags sets. The envelope I used is fom PTI, too. It’s one of the kraft 5 1/8″ x 3 5/8″ ones . It fits a standard pack of Skittles well! The ribbon, button and inks are from PTI, too. The jute is from my stash.
For some really cool treat packages, check Nichole’s blog and those of the PTI Senior Design Team.
Thanks to Nichole and the PTI girls for the invite to take part in the fun.
And thank you for stopping by. I’ll be back soon.
Have a good day!
