"Spooky" Sweets

Good Morning Friends!

Well....that didn't go as planned.  Since my last post, my blog decided it didn't like the way things were working.  I haven't been able to post as planned but it looks like (fingers and toes crossed) it's working now.  We shall see.  I've had SO many things to share and I'll be playing "catch up".  Woot!

Have you seen the Holiday Catalog yet??  Oh My Smurf!!  It is UH MA ZING!  If you don't have your own copy yet, leave me a comment or message me at shellsuit@verizon.net and I'll get one out to you jiffy quick.  You DO NOT want to miss this one!

Now you may not know this about me but FALL is my absolute favorite time of year.  I LOVE everything about it...the colors...the smells...the pumpkins and leaves....Ahhhhh!  Well, I've been in full "Fall Mode" in the studio and I have a fun and "Spooky" project for you today.  Check this out...

How fun is that??  These little "Mini Coffee Cups" are the bomb dot com!  There are so many ways you can use them.  I just love them wrapped in our NEW "Happy Haunting" Designer Series Paper.  Aren't those ghosts sweet?  I will have all the supplies I used listed at the end of the post so stay tuned.

Here are the measurements and instructions for the "cup carrier"...

Box:  Cut one piece of card stock at 4" x 6 3/4" and score all four sides at 1".
Cut two opposite sides of the score lines up to the intersecting score lines.
Cut the corners off on the diagonal.  This will ensure easy assembly.  Fold on all score lines and adhere with strong adhesive.  I use Fast Fuse.
To decorate:  Cut two strips of DSP at 3/4" x 3 3/4" for the front and back sides of box and
cut two strips at 3/4" x 1 3/4" for the sides of box.  Adhere.

Handle:   Cut one piece at 1 7/8" x 11" and score at 1 1/2", 5 1/2" and 9 1/2".
Fold in half and score with a bone folder.
Adhere together with Fast Fuse or adhesive of your choice.
Using either a circle or oval punch, punch a hole for the handle as shown above.
Fold the flaps out at the bottom forming an upside down "T".  Adhere piece to the inside of the box using Fast Fuse or strong adhesive of your choice.


There's just no end to the kinds of treats you could fill these sweet cups with and you could add a gift card as an added bonus too.

Okay....here are the items you'll need to create some of your very own...
First, the items you can order from my Online Store.  Just click on the item(s) you'd like to get and you'll be taken to your shopping cart at my store.  Don't worry...there are NEVER any lines and the lights are always on. ;-)
