In yesterday’s post here, I shared a sweet Halloween Takeout Treat Box. My WOW! video above offers tips, product possibilities and a demonstration for the Stampin’ Up! Takeout Treats stamp set and coordinating Takeout Thinlits Dies. I used them to make yesterday’s takeout box as well as the one I created below.
Crop the bat pattern from Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper 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.

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 Gorgeous Grape card stock and the Big Shot. TIP: The octagonal tag from Takeout Thinlits Dies acts as my foundation for all the “decor” on top. 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.
Wrap Gorgeous Grape 3/8 Mini Stripe Ribbon around the box and tie in a bow. Use a Glue Dot to adhere the knot of the bow to the Gorgeous Grape octagon.
Using the Stampin’ Up! Stamparatus stamp positioning tool for best results, stamp heart image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Lemon Lime Twist card stock. Crop with the heart die from Takeout Thinlits Dies, the Big Shot and the Magnetic Platform to keep the image in place. Adhere the heart to the Black Foil banner.
Again using the Stamparatus, stamp “love you lots” from Takeout Treats stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Thick Whisper White card stock. Crop with the Big Shot, Magnetic Platform and banner die from Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies. TIP: Using Thick Whisper White card stock adds a bit more substance to the tag. Add a Gorgeous Grape Glitter Enamel Dot for bling.
