Mini Halloween Treat Boxes

Use Stampin' Up!'s Petal Card Extra Large Double Punch
to create these mini treat boxes. They are small, each one holds only one of those chocolate nuggets, but so fun to make!

So, I was trying to give credit to the creator of these awesome little boxes. I first saw them on Stampin' Up!'s Stampin Connection, by Karen Leveille who said she "cased" them from Patti Lee. And holy moly mini boxes, wow! When I finally tracked them down on Patti's totally awesome website, well wow! Check this out and this and THESE! Theses mini boxes aren't the only awesome paper crafts on her website- go check it out, I promise you'll find something you LOVE!

Day of Gratitude

Did any of my reader know that October 2nd was World Card Making Day? I shoulda, coulda had something fun at my house for WCMD but I didn't :( I did however create a few cards that day but didn't have too much free time. I followed World Card Making Day - Release Week Challenges from Verve Stamps. They always have really cute card sketches and even cuter examples to go with them. On all the cards I used the stamp set, Day of Gratitude. Love this stamp set and I can't get enough of the Autumn Spice DSP from the holiday mini. This is great cardstock! Plus I just love the cardstock colors that match; cajun craze, old olive, more mustard & early espresso!

It's not too late to make some great Thanksgiving cards!
