Playing with Pumpkins

Happy Fall Y'all!

Before I start my post I have a little confession, I've been busy lately with home improvement and "clearing the clutter" projects which hasn't left much time for blogging. Throw in a few trips and it has seriously cut down on my computer time. So if it's been a while since I paid you a visit please know that I'll be by soon and do a proper catch up. :)

Okay, I'm here to share an array of pumpkins treat boxes using templates and cutting files from The Cutting Cafe. Regina offers several fun ways to give sweet treats this Halloween and I have three to show you. For more pumpkin fun (3D cards, bingo cards, etc.) be sure to check out the DT lineup of projects on The Cutting Cafe blog tomorrow, October 7th.

First up is the Pumpkin Treat Box Template - Cutting File.
It includes 6 sentiments to print and die cut or punch. 

I added a punched MS border and some silver Stickles for fun then filled it with Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Yum! 

*A little disclaimer here-I love Regina's sentiments and the fact that she gives you a TON of them with her designs. I used a stamped sentiment because I have so many stamps which have never been used and I feel guilty. Just wanted to explain why I didn't use one because I know inquiring minds will want to know. ;) 

Next is the Halloween Pillow Boxes Template - Cutting File.
Regina offer 4 window cutouts for the ultimate in cuteness. :) 

 Before I closed my box I tucked in a bag of Skittles for the recipient. It's guaranteed to put a smile on her face. :) I added ribbon and paper curls to the top of my pumpkin and orange peel Stickles for a little sparkle while a black soot distress marker defines the outline. The sentiment is another one in my stash that needed inking and a Spellbinders tag die and ribbon from my stash complete it. 


Last but not least is the Halloween - Fall Milk Carton Template - Cutting File.
It comes with 8 window cutouts to choose from.

I used the pumpkin cutout because we're celebrating all things pumpkin at TCC and Authentique's-Glowing Halloween paper collection helped decorate it. A piece of acetate was adhered to the inside window and then I filled it with Reese's Pieces for a yummy treat.

The adorable owl tag is from the Halloween Mini Colored Set Printable Stamps.
There are 18 images in this set making it a fantastic bargain!

Each treat box/holder was distressed with black soot distress ink to give it that extra spooky feel. These are a great way to make treat giving fun this Halloween!!!

A quick reminder - if you do NOT own an electronic cutting tool you can use the PDF file which is included with every template/cutting file. Just print and cut with scissors!

Don't forget to check out the The Cutting Cafe blog on the 7th of October to see more inspiration by the design team and you could also win 3 free sets of your choice by leaving a comment for Regina. She'll announce the random winner on the 21st . 

Thanks for the visit today! Have a fantastic week. :)
