Spooky Treats…

The Square Pillow Box Thinlet arrived yesterday…and then this happened.


Oh! and the Seasonal Frame Thinlets was in the same box.  These boxes are a great size for treats or gifts without the window, of course.  It takes just 1/2 of one piece of Designer Series Paper to make one too.

Here is the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  Happy Haunting DSP and Basic Black cardstock
  • Ink:  None
  • Stamps:  None
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Seasonal Frame Thinlets, Square Pillow Box Thinlets, Rhinestones, White 1 1/4″ Jute Ribbon and Fine Tip Glue Pen


  • Cut your DSP in half then cut two of the box dies.
  • If you plan to have a window, cut it before you put the two sides of the box together with Tear Tape.
  • Cut a piece of Window Sheet with the larger of the two windows and add to inside of box with Tomboy Glue.
  • To make the window frame, lay the smaller window inside the larger  window and run through the Big Shot.  Add this frame to the front of your pillow box window.
  • Place your candy directly into the box or add to a cellophane bag first.  Tie the Jute Ribbon around the box and tie in a know.  Use your piercing tool to fray the ribbon.
  • Add rhinestones to one side of the window frame.
  • Cut the word “spooky” from Basic Black cardstock and use the Fine Tip Glue Pen to add glue to the back.  Place on your pillow box.

There are MANY pillow boxes in my future.  They are fun and so easy to put together.  I’ll share later…

Are you wondering about the Halloween Plate in the background of this photo today?  It was handpainted by one of my “stampin’ peeps”, Mary Pat Carden.  She gave it to me a week ago for my birthday.  Isn’t that the coolest?

Hope your week is getting off to a good start this Monday.  Things in the studio are in high gear getting ready for the Rambling Rose Fall Retreat October 2 – 4th.  There will be lots of stamping going on in the mountains.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…


Once you are retired, Monday’s aren’t what they used to be…

If you are inky…you are HaPpY!



  1. My grandson would love to receive this little box of candy. So cute. Thanks for all the details. Love your “b-ism” today!! That little kid’s expression is priceless.
