How about a little Takeout Treats 3-D fun today! This not-so-scary box measures approximate 2 1/8 x 1 3/4 x 2. It’s perfect for year round treats, small gifts, place settings and party favors!

PAPER CRAFTING MILEAGE: One of the things I take into consideration when I purchase a Stampin’ Up! stamp set and and die bundle is “paper crafting mileage.” The Takeout Treats stamp set and coordinating Takeout Thinlits Dies are ready to add the “cute factor” to many occasions, including birthday, Halloween, Thanksgiving (“thank you” sentiment), Christmas and Valentine’s Day (it comes up so fast after Christmas)!
STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:
Crop Basic Black card stock twice with the takeout box die from Takeout Thinlits Dies and the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine. These boxes are simple to assemble because the dies both cut and set score lines during their journey through the Big Shot.
Crop the Halloween kitty pattern (Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper) twice with the Big Shot, the Magnetic Platform and coordinating panel die from Takeout Thinlits Dies. Adhere them to largest panels (front and back) of the box using Snail Adhesive. See ALL the new holiday designer paper here and get a FREE coordinating color chart!
Fold and score tab lines of the box with a Bone Folder. Assemble box and adhere the two pieces using Tear & Tape Adhesive. It’s fabulous for 3-D projects.
Crop the octagonal tag from Takeout Thinlits Dies using Pumpkin Pie card stock and the Big Shot. TIP: The octagonal tag from Takeout Thinlits Dies acts as my foundation for all the Halloween “decor.” Everything is attached to it and the whole thing (including ribbon) slides off and on (like a belly band) for access to the box.
Crop Black Foil card stock with the flagged banner die from Takeout Thinlits Dies. The shiny finish of the Black Foil card stock reminds me of patent leather. Set folds with a Bone Folder and adhere flagged ends diagonally across the octagonal tag with Glue Dots. Add to the top of the takeout box without adhering. Tuck a piece of Silver Mini Sequin Trim below the black foil banner with a Glue Dot.
Wrap Black 5/8″ Glittered Ribbon (it’s “off the chain” gorgeous) around the box and tie in a bow. Use a Glue Dot to adhere the knot of the bow to the black foil banner.
Using the Stampin’ Up! Stamparatus stamp positioning tool for best results, stamp “yum” from Takeout Treats stamp set on Thick Whisper White card stock. Crop with the Big Shot, Magnetic Platform and tag die from Takeout Thinlits Dies. TIP: Using Thick Whisper White card stock adds a bit more substance to the tag.
Thread Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine through the tag hole and below the glitter ribbon bow knot. I “smoosh” it into the glue dot below the knot from above so that it’s easier to tie in a bow. TIP: Leave the ends of the ribbon and twine fairly long to give a “spidery” finish!
