Your Next Stamp September DT Dare

This month at YOUR NEXT STAMP, our Design Team (DT) Dare challenge is called ABC. That means we were given the challenge to create Anything But a Card!

When this challenge comes up, I do have a few "go to" projects that I like to use. Note pad holders, book marks, scrapbook pages and gift boxes are all great options. Having so many fabulous Halloween stamps and dies, this month I decided to create a gift box. This will go as a gift to one of my daughter's teachers this year. It's so nice to be ahead of schedule on a few things.

I inked up mummy Waddles from the WADDLES TRICK OF TREAT to decorate my 4x4 Halloween treat box.

I have done a few gift boxes in a variety of sizes. They are easy to make, and work for all seasons and occasions. I decorated this box using paper from Jillibean Soup Owloween Stew collection.

Measurements for a 4 x 4 x 1.5 inch box:
Box Base: 7 inches square scored at 1.5 inches on all sides
Lid: the cardstock for the lid will measure 1/16 to 1/8 of an inch large than the piece cut for the bottom of the box. Score again 1.5 inches on all sides.

Just load up the box with a few goodies and it's all ready for your child's teach, a coworkers or friend.

Here is a closer look a sweet mummy Waddles. I used the Waddles Trick or Treat die set to cut out the image. I also added a few of the new gumdrops called Candy Corn and Spellbound

Supplies Used:
Dies: Waddles Trick or TreatStitched Square Die
Paper: Jillibean Soup Owloween Stew

Other: Candy Corn and Spellbound Gumdrops
