Halloween Treats

This Halloween gum holder is another project that we created at Stamp Camp last night. After purchasing larger packs of gum, I realized that the measurements I found online weren't going to work and since I was being the last minute lucy that I am, I made it work! Any time I'm trying out a new box, bag or unique fold I always use scraps of computer paper to create it and then once I can get it work and I like it, I write the measurements on my template and store it in an accordion file so if I need to refer back to it later I have it. This gum holder measures 2 3/4"x9 1/2", starting at one end I scored at 2 3/4", then at 3 1/4" then turn your paper around and score the other end at 2 3/8", then 3", at this end you will need to punch an opening for your gum, I used the word window punch and punched one full punch then lining up with the first punch I punch again but this time I only punched a quarter of the punch. I hope this makes sense, I'm not very good at tutorials and I think I'm making this sound more complicated then it really is. If you have any questions just email me.

Supplies: Batty for You, See You Around wheel, The Happy Halloween is from a retired SU set, Ghostly Greetings designer paper, Ribbon, Scalloped circle punch, Circle punches, Googlie eyes, Velcro, Tacky tape, Gum. Colors: Lovely Lilac, Only Orange, Basic Black, Whisper White.

Thanks for visiting!
