Seasonal Chums Treat Tubes Treats
F un Halloween treats made with Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- 2 pieces each of 2-1/4" x 4" from Very Vanilla Cardstock
Mount the front/back jack o' lantern image from the Seasonal Chums Set on Block E. Ink it up with the Memento Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of one of the Very Vanilla strips. Set aside to let the ink dry thoroughly.
Fill two Treat Tubes with treats of your choice - M&Ms, Reese's Pieces, Skittles, pretzel sticks, jelly beans, etc. Push the stoppers in firmly.
Tip: If the stoppers don't seem to want to stay in place, put a Mini Glue Dot on one side of the stopper before pushing it into the tube.
Cut an 8" piece of Old Olive 1/4" Stitched-Edge Ribbon.
Tie two Treat Tubes together using the ribbon.
Place the stamped jack o'lantern tag image on top of Grid Paper to protect your work surface. The Stampin' Blends Markers bleed through so you need to protect your work surface.
Use the Light Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends Marker to color in the eyes, nose, and mouth holes on the jack o'lantern. Use the Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends Marker to add darker areas.
Use the Dark Old Olive Stampin' Blends Marker to go over the lines on the leaves and half of the stem on one side of the pumpkin. Use the Light Old Olive Stampin' Blends Marker to color in the rest of the vines, stem, and leaves and to blend the lines. Repeat on the other side of the pumpkin.
Tip: Work on only one side of the pumpkin at a time. The ink from the Stampin' Blends Markers needs to be wet for easier blending, so you need to work on small areas at a time.
Use the Light Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blends Marker to color in the rest of one of the pumpkins. Use the Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blends Marker to add shadows. Then, use the Light Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blends Marker again to blend the lines. Repeat with the other side of the pumpkin.
Pick out the double pumpkin framelit from the Seasonal Tags Framelits. Place the stamped pumpkins image on the Cutting Pad on top of the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot. Place the double pumpkin framelit on top so it is centered over the pumpkin images. Place a Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Because the Stampin' Blends Markers bled through and you want to use this as a tag, you will need to cut another tag piece out to glue inside the first. So, place the other piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock on the Cutting Pad on top of the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot. Place the double pumpkin framelit on top. Place a Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Put SNAIL Adhesive on the back side of the colored tag. Adhere the blank tag to the back so all the edges match up.
Fold the tag in half.
Mount the "To: From:" sentiment on Block A. Ink it up with the Memento Pad. Stamp it inside the tag on the back half. Write names on the tag.
Cut a 4" piece of Old Olive Baker's Twine.
Feed the Baker's Twine through the ribbon hole on the top of the tag. Tie a half knot.
Slide one end of the Baker's Twine under the ribbon tied around the Treat Tubes. Tie a knot in the twine. Trim the ends.
