Pumpkin Place cards & Treat Boxes !!

Can you believe it, two posts in two days - wonders will never cease ! I thought I would post these adorable little boxes. They are for our Thanksgiving dinner. There first task is to serve as a place card and secondly they are filled with four chocolates for alittle treat after dinner. Two for the price of one. You can`t get better !


I started off by making a matchbox using the SU die. Then cutting out two pumpkins from the Spellbinders Nesting Pumpkins. I added some DP from My Minds Eye to brighten them up alittle and then put them through the pumpkin embossing folder. The saying and pumpkin is one from the JustRite Demi Phrases and I have personalised it using the 15pt font which came with the 2" block. There is a small tag of ribbon attached by a gold brad on the end of the box to make it easier to open.From this photograph you can see the inside of the box with the chocolates. Four of the Hershey Toffee and Almond Nuggets fit in a treat. I covered them with matching DP.

My friend came round earlier today and we made ten for her Thanksgiving table. She was `chuffed`.

Hope you like them. Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a great day.

OH and yes I just re-read and they say Thanksgiving...anyway they are stinkin' cute!!! LOL

I agree Pamela, they would be cute for Halloween aswell. It would be easy enough to change the demi-phrase around the edge.

Gorgeous Yvonne! I did some like this with the JustRite font for the JustRite blog hop, but I love your's with the circle! Love this idea!

How did you make the box part would love to know thanks...

Yvonne Jackson said...

NormaJean - The box part is made with the Stampin Up bigz XL Matchbox die. If you don`t have one of these you could always make a small box to fit inside the Pumpkin die. Happy Stampin ! Thanks for visiting my blog.

Yvonne,

These are very cute. I was wondering what "Spellbinders Nesting Pumpkins" are. Is Spellbinders a stamp company? I really like the shape of the actual pumpkins. I was hoping the pumpkins were a die cut item.

I found the Spellbinders site. Should have looked before I asked! Do you know if the dies will work in a Big Shot?

Yvonne Jackson said...

Kristine - The Spellbinder Dies work great in the Big Shot and in most other die cutting machines. They are one of my favourite "toys" to play with. Have fun and thank you for visiting my blog.
