SUOC108 Freaky Friends

The theme over on SUO Challenges this week is “The Treat’s the Thing”.  Of course, so close to Halloween, I naturally thought of Halloween treats so made my little holder with Stampin’ Up!’s Freaky Friends!  Can you tell what I used?  Yep!  I used a portion of the Curvy Keepsake Box!  Isn’t that fun?


SUOC108 Freaky Friends

Here are the details:

  • I used Tangerine Tango cardstock and cut two pieces that were about 3 1/2″ wide and cut just the side of the box that had the loop handle at the top.
  • I trimmed the bottom of both pieces so that I could overlap and adhere them.
  • I used the Large Polka Dot Folder and embossed both sides with it.  Inside the large circles, I stamped the eyes from Freaky Friends with Tuxedo Black Ink on the front and back.
  • I punched a moon with the 1 3/4″ circle punch from Crushed Curry cardstock and sponged Tangerine Tango Ink around the edges, then stamped Ghoulish Greetings with Tuxedo Black Ink on it.
  • I stamped the cat and two bats with Tuxedo Black on scrap Whisper White, then cut them out and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • To close, I tied Black Bakers Twine around it and tied a bow.
  • The holder will hold 1 or 2 mini candy bars like shown!

Isn’t this a fun and spooky treat holder???  I love using that Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlet in a little different way!  Make sure to check out the rest of the Design Team’s creations over on SUO Challenges!

So fun, ghoulish and such an inventive way to use the Curvy Box die. TFS

Hi Connie, I love the idea of making this treat “box” with only two sides. What a great way to conserve paper (that Curvy Keepsake box is terrific but certainly gobbles up stock) and yet still have an eye-catching and useful little container. I hope you won’t mind that this idea will be CASEd. I’ll give full credit to you, of course. Thanks for the great idea!
