  1. What a versatile die, it can be used all year long! Wonderful !

  2. You’ve done it again. Making me want another set of thinlits! 😉

  3. Mary, there you go enabling me again! I adore this treat box.

  4. To cute for words!!! Just love, love, love !!!! I may have to have this box now…I’m thinking brownies would be a yummy treat…Though Brian does have a point…Who doesn’t love some cash!!!

  5. Hi Judi: I typically respond within 24 hours to questions. However, anything can get lost with the internet gremlins. Thanks for asking again. Based on what you are sharing, you aren’t doing anything wrong. Ink will bead and smear on the glossy surface of the embossing. They don’t play well together. Even when I use markers on embossing, I have to be careful or dab the embossed areas with a paper towel to try and grab any remaining ink. M

  6. I have written before with this question and got no response. So I suspect I don’t know what website to enter. Hopefully this works. My question: I have done some white embossing on a card and then tried to stamp with Mossy Meadow on the embossing. The ink beads up and then even after waiting a decent time, it smears. What am I doing wrong? or what can I do differently? Thanks, Judi

  7. What a delightfully spooky box for treats!

  8. Thanks, Marty. I tied the bow with a separate piece of ribbon than what wraps around the box. I found it allowed me to create a cleaner bow!

  9. Wow this is a gorgeous project. The decorations are flawless and the bow is perfect!

  10. Oh MsMary, love love that box , love the ribbon on it , now what’s the treat?? Lol
    Hugs Frenchie

  11. Thanks for the lovely comments. I plan to share this filled with candy for my neighbor.

  12. You created one polished up project for Halloween. Without a doubt……FABULOUS!

  13. One more tip! I forgot to mention that I used the Stampin’ Up! Tear & Tape Adhesive (138995) for the box. So easy to use and great hold! A godsend for it all your 3-D projects!

  14. Cute! Who wouldn’t love to receive this baker’s box filled with candy – or maybe cash? Fun!

    • Well “cash” wasn’t on my list of possibilities, Brian. However, I guess is could work for those who want to give a “hunk” of cash. What are we going to do with you, Brian King?

  15. So cute!!! love that ”Spooky” sentiment, what a lovely font!!

  16. What a fun project…love it!
