Silke is today’s Timeless Tuesday Challenge hostess and she asked us to create a Halloween project. I thought the Peek-a-boo Treat holder on SCS would work great for that. I used this sample in the video tutorial for the project.

The treat holder base is a 3 1/4″ x 9 1/4″ piece of Authentique Glowing paper. After scoring the paper a 3/8″ x 3 1/4″ strip of orange Echo Park Apothecary Emporium paper was adhered to the front flap. A 3 1/4″ wide Neenah Solar White cardstock strip was cut and embossed with an Ironwork Accent die and stitched underneath the flap.

Another Ironwork Accent die was used to cut a frame. It was layered first with a black cardstock circle, then with a slightly smaller white one. Both circles had been cut with Classic Circle Nestabilities dies. The white circle had been stamped with a sentiment from Flourishes Witching You a Happy Halloween in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. A swirl and bat from the same set had been stamped over the sentiment in second generation Dusty Concord Distress ink. The layers were adhered to the treat base and Rhinestone Bling from Want2scrap were added to finish it off.

For the inside I cut another Ironwork accent frame. This time though a circle die was centered inside the die to create a frame. A slightly bigger hole was cut with another circle die into the treat holder base to create the window. The frame as well as the candy were adhered with Liquid Glue.

Here is a video for the visual learner:
