Pals Fall Blog Hop 2011 - Halloween Goodies and Packaging with Frightful Sight

Welcome to the September Pals Hop! This month, we're featuring Fall and Halloween inspired projects! Enjoy the hop and the amazing creations that the Pals have come up with.

You've likely hopped over from the talented Ann Schach at The Stampin' Schach . I'm stop number 5 on the Pals Hop and I'm glad you hopped in! I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for Fall and Halloween paper projects from the Stampin' Pretty Pals! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you'll be back on track!

Here are some ideas for packaging Halloween Candy that would be great for family, friends, and co-workers
These are super easy and quick to make especially with punches 
This little package is fun to make - Cut cardstock 3 1/2" x 11" and score at 1 1/2", 5 1/2", and at 7 1/4". Add any DSP paper to the section measuring 4". Than punch the front with the decorative Label and or any punch will work. 

Stuff some candy (your choice) into a little clear bag. Attach the top of the clear bag to the cardstock. This is the last portion of the strip, measuring 3 5/8" by using a staple. Fold over the 1 1/2" scored section to close the package. Poke a couple of holes on top of package to add ribbon and decorate. The ghost was made using the Owl Punch and a couple of eyes and the sentiment comes from the stamp set: Teeny Tiny Wishes along with the Word Window Punch.

Petal Punch Candy Box
Here I used the Petal Card Punch, which I cut 4 of them and combined them to create a little box and than used the 1" square punch to decorate the sides and for the top, I used a 1" circle punch and cut in half. DSP used is Frightful Sight.

This is the top view of the little box

Last but not least, here is another little packaging that you can make using the treat cups and the 1 3/4" circle punch. Cardstock is 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" and folded in half. Than I cut whisper white 2 1/2" x 4" and DSP with the same measurements since I wanted the top to be more sturdy.

I than used the 1 3/4" circle punch thru the DSP/whisper white card stock and than again with the concord crush cardstock. A sliding door was made so the person could get to the candy. Sliding door measures 2 1/2" x 2". I used the Tab Punch for the side of the door to slide back and forth. Separate post to come with pictures.
