Treat boxes galore!

For Thanksgiving, the Pumpkin Pie CS pizza box (size is 2"square) was inspired by Nicole Tugrul.
I'm sorry I can't share the names of those who inspired the bat and the mint holder in the back, but there are many styles of these around. Here are close ups of them all:
This box holds some yummy candy corn

Rockets in Canada, Smarties in the States! In Canada, Smarties are little chocolates like M&M's

Mints in cello!

This matchbook holds a chocolate dollar

This box holds a Hershey's kiss and the box is made with the new Petal Card Punch and the Cute by the Inch Hostess stamps.  Wendy (one of my Thurs. night gals)and I were playing around one night with the punch (we thought it was broken or something worse) but it punches and embosses at the same time.  We played and twisted and came up with a cute little 1" box.  Well, I went to town putting together the best way to make a box that could hold a little treat and this is what I came up with.  Check back later for a tutorial.  This is really cute and you don't have to measure or score! Just punch, cut, glue, stamp, stuff & tie.

Very cute the bat is adorable. Just one more reason the owl punch is on my wish list.
