Quick & Easy Treat Holders

So are you ready for some quick and easy treat holders? I created a couple to share with you today so grab a cup of coffee and sit back and get your creative wheels turning. I started out by stamping several stamps from The Rubber Cafe onto white tissue paper (recycled by the way), I used H-917 You Need To Dust, D-488 You Shake My Bones and CL-002 Trick Or Treat.
Once I stamped all of my Halloween images, just in a random pattern, really no rhyme or reason on how I stamped them, I picked out a green Copic Marker and air brushed the tissue paper green.
After I was finished air brushing, I put some wrapped candy inside the end roll of the toilet paper and taped the stamped tissue paper to secure. Just roll around the end roll and secure. Tie ribbon on the ends to keep the candy inside. Quick & easy and a fun project for your kids to help with for those class parties.

The second quick & easy treat box is really made simple with Spellbinders™ new LF-010 Square Bracket Edge Box die template. Using my Grand Calibur die cutting machine, I cut both the box bottom and box lid at the same time. The box bottom was cut out of white card stock, I stamped the same cute stamps that I used in the first quick & easy treat holder from The Rubber Cafe..
I also used a green Copic Marker and air brushed the bottom of the box.......the lid I used some pattern paper from My Minds eye.
to finish my treat box off, I adhered some orange buttons and put some candy corns inside...yum..yum my favorite. Well I hope that you are inspired to create some quick & easy treat holders just like I have. Crafty Smiles.
