This week Newton’s Nook Designs is getting ready for Halloween with a fun Inspiration week! All week the NND Design Team will be sharing inspiration using some of their favorite Halloween products to get you in the mood for tricks and treats! Check out what I created today and don’t forget to check the NND Blog each day this week for more fun inspiration!
I created a little photo tutorial on how I folded these fun treat holders up. They just take a 6×6 sheet of cardstock or patterned paper and a bone folder does help but it’s not required.
Here’s a quick step-by-step. 1. Fold your paper in half to make a triangle. 2. Take one corner and fold it up toward the opposite side. 3. Do the same thing with the other corner. 4. Fold the front flap down.
I take my bone folder to each crease as I go along which helps make the next fold a little easier. Then I stick my fingers inside the holder at the end and puff it out. This seems to help the flap hold the criss-cross folds in place. I hope this helps!
For my treat holders today I chose the Trick or Treat Kittens to stamp and color with my copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and then pulled fun colors from there to use for my treat holder and background circles.
For this cutie, I used the flying bats stencil with purple ink on the purple cardstock before folding it. Then I die cut a green circle with the circle frames dies and inked the edge for a little depth. I used liquid adhesive and foam squares to adhere the pieces. Then stamped and heat embossed a sentiment on a black circle (also from the circle frames set) and added it with foam squares too.
For this treat holder I switched the colors and used the gingham stencil with gray ink before folding it up. I used the same foam squares and liquid adhesive to adhere all my pieces and popped it on the front.
I stuff them each with two mini kit-kat bars but there are a million possibilities for the treats yours could hold!
Here’s a look at them both without treats when I added glossy accents and unicorn Stickles for extra shine and fun!
I hope you enjoyed these and found some inspiration to create something fun for Halloween.
