Welcome to the Crafty Cupcakes Team Stampin' Up! Blog Hop for August 2017. Each month members of the Team take part in our Team Blog Hop to share with you our cards and projects made using the fabulous Stampin' Up! products. You are currently visiting Jillian Selwood from the UK and below you will see the full list of everyone taking part. To move to the next blog just click the name after mine in the list. This month our theme is a sneaky peak from the new Autumn/Winter catalogue that goes live on 1st September 2017. 

Halloween Treat Box, Stampin' Up! Autumn Winter Catalogue 2017

Halloween seems to get more popular every year over here. We usually get between 80 and 100 trick or treaters on the night knocking on our door! Well it's a good excuse to buy lots of sweets and chocolates isn't it. I always make something special for our neighbours children and this year will be no exception

As soon as I saw the cat punch in the new catalogue I wanted it. Although we have two dogs I do class myself as a cat person. I wanted the cat to take centre stage on the box so I used the classic label punch to make a long groove in the card layer. I punched two 3/4" circles and attached them either side of the groove with a Stampin' Dimensional, then I glued the punched out cat to the top circle. This means the cat can move from one side of box to the other.

I stamped BOO! near the top of the layer using the Brushworks Alphabet Stamp set.

I made the box using the Gift Bag Punchboard, I just love how neat the flaps are, makes the box look professionally made.

I stamped the 'face' on the cat using the stamp from Foxy Friends stamp set, I think it looks a little too big but still much better than if I attempted to draw a face myself!

I wrapped some the of new beautiful basic black 3/8" shimmer ribbon round the box and tied a dubious bow on the top.

So all I need to do now is make three more boxes and buy some sweets to fill them up. I think I will leave the sweets until nearer the time otherwise I'll eat them all.
