Halloween Treat Holders

For this week's ABC (anything but a card) project, I have some cute Halloween treat holders to share with you. ABC projects are really not my strong suit- I find they take me a LOT of time to create with more mistakes than you can imagine! So, I am going to take the easy way out and show you what I reproduced using my friend Sheri's lovely and easy to follow tutorial! You can find her Youtube video HERE. I basically followed her tutorial to the letter, only changing my stamps and embellies and adding crepe paper to the bottoms.

I used a great new Halloween set, that's perfect for all of your treats and tags~ cleverly named Halloween Tags! This set also has a coordinating Silhouette cut file available for download HERE. I don't have a Silhouette, so I hand cut my stamped images. If you are struggling with how to use these cut files with your TSG stamps, Trendsetter Tangii did an easy-to-understand tutorial last week!! Perfect!!

Some details about my treat tubes:

  • I used TSG's Spiderweb die border to create the web around the top. 
  • I went into my Halloween stash and found some ribbon, glittery embellishments and washi tape that would coordinate.
  • I added Glossy Accents to the main images, as well as the little accents (which are stamps from the set as well), and sprinkled with Tim Holtz Rock Candy glitter. I love that stuff. I can't believe that I have been living under a rock this whole time and just bought a jar.
  • I HATE candy corn. I specifically had to buy some for a prop. I'll probably toss the entire bucket in a few weeks. I'll expect Paypal donations to reimburse my $3.50 I spent to make my TSG pics nicer ;) hehe!
Here are a few close up's of each treat holder! I always make 3 when I do something like this, or my kids flip out, thinking I purposely left someone out!

Thanks for stopping in! I hope you are inspired to make some fun treat holders with some of our awesome Halloween sets!!!
