Candy Wrapper WOW! Video with a Twist

May I please share one last Halloween idea using the Stampin’ Up! Candy Wrapper die?  This “BOO” box trio and card are headed to my adorable nephew as a spooky surprise.  Each contains a couple bite sized candy bars.

LET’S TWIST!  The question I have been asked the most about the Stampin’ Up! Candy Wrapper Die is regarding assembly.  Is it complicated?  I have made several dozen of these boxes and can assure you that once you figure it out, they go quickly.  The trick is in the “twist” and today’s Stampin’ Pretty 1 Minute to WOW! Video shows you how!


  • The Typeset Alphabet Dies cut through card stock and Stampin’ Up! Onboard Long Board (chipboard).  Perfect layers and a 3-D effect.

  • I cut the Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Series Paper (wrapped around each box) to 6 1/4″ x 1 3/4″.  Using my Simply Scored Scoring Tool, I scored the short distance at 1 3/8″, 2 3/4″, 4 1/8″ AND 5 5/8″ for a neat fit and a “seam” buried on an edge.  The reason why the last score goes an 1/8″ longer than the others is so that it can “stretch” to the edge.

  • The coordinating envelope for my 3 x 3 card was created using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and Simply Scored Diagonal Plate.  Here’s my handy envelope chart with dimensions and details for many envelope sizes.

  1. Thank you for the tip. I recently purchased this die, this will come in handy!

  2. Now that looks simple…I’m going to give it a try. Thanks!

    This really was a “WOW” tutorial for me. Sort of an “AHA” moment. This is going to make it so much easier to use this die. Wish I had known this when it first came out! Thanks so much for sharing.

    The cover sheets can be found in the tutorial library here.

    Here is the direct link for the charts. The format is a little different but updated.

  5. Oh thank you, thank you and thank you. I just couldn’t figure this one out and you have made it a breeze as usual. Thank you for all your post, you do a great job.

  6. Okay Mary……I’ve had this die since it first came out (what-two catalogs ago????) and I can tell you that making these little cuties will be SO MUCH EASIER NOW! Thanks for yet another FUN and EDUCATIONAL One Minute to WOW Video. You AMAZE ME GIRLFRIEND!

  7. Love these! Thanks for the tutorial.

    On another topic: I used your cover sheets to sort my cardstock and they are ragged. Don’t know what to search for them under on the blog. They list all colors by families with a square for paper, ink pad, marker. I promise to save the link this time, lol.

  8. Devlin said he wants to keep the boo box forever. He especially wants to use it at his birthday party in November as a way to present a prize.

    But, I don’t think he’ll give it up to the winner! 🙂

  9. Ok! that’s much better! I’ll give the candy treat box another whirl..or Twist! Adorable projects!

  10. Oh! thank you, thank you, thank you. I had never been able to figure that out!
