These super cute Tombstone Treat Boxes in the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog are a perfect way to give treats to your special ghouls this Halloween! I decorated my tombstone treat box with spider webs, a sparkly cat, a spider, DSP skull & pumpkin, and Cute Star adhesive-backed Sequins for Day 5 of my 13 Days of Halloween. You can watch my Facebook Live replay of this project on my Facebook Page here and on my YouTube channel below.
Start with a Tombstone Treat Box. Die cut a window from the top half of the Tombstone Treat Box (the top half is slightly larger) with the Frightful Tags dies. Cut a Window Sheet panel and use Stampin’ Seal to adhere it to the inside of the Tombstone top half over the die cut window. Stamp the sentiment from the Clever Cats stamp set on the front of the bottom half of the tombstone in Memento Black ink. Then build the tombstone treat box.
Decorate your Tombstone Treat Box –
Die cut Be Dazzling Specialty paper spider webs with the Frightful Tags dies. Punch out a Black Glitter Paper cat with the Cat Punch. Fussy cut out a skull & pumpkin from the Cute Halloween DSP with paper snips. Stamp the spider from the Cute Halloween stamp set in Memento Black ink on Basic White cs and fussy cut it out with paper snips.
Add the die cut Be Dazzling Specialty paper spider webs – a full web on the top half of the tombstone front bottom right overlapping the window & a piece on the front top left and on the bottom half of the tombstone add a halved web along the bottom front with glue. Use glue to add the punched cat to the top half of the tombstone front along the bottom right overlapping the spider web. Add the fussy cut spider to the top half of the tombstone top left overlapping the spider web with a Mini Black Stampin’ Dimensional.
Add the fussy cut Cute Halloween DSP skull to the top half of the tombstone bottom left slightly overlapping the spider web & punched cat with a Black Stampin’ Dimensional and the pumpkin to the bottom half of the tombstone along the bottom left overlapping the spider web with a Black Stampin’ Dimensional. Add Cute Stars Adhesive-Back Sequins to both halves of the tombstone and add Wink of Stella to the spider, skull, and pumpkin for extra sparkle.
Wrap your Candies –
Pick your candies and make sure they fit together well within your Tombstone Treat Box. I used a mini Milky Way, a mini Butterfinger, and a mini Twix. I cut the Cute Halloween DSP wrappers strips and used my bone folder to gently curl the strips so that they will easily wrap the candies. I added at least two glue dots to the DSP strip end so that it would attach to the DSP and not directly to the candy. I then arranged the wrapped candies in the tombstone so that a skull & ghost was seen through the window.
