Inking Royalty Blog Hop-Tricks or Treats



Welcome to InKing Royalty’s September Blog Hop.  We are helping to prepare you for October with super-fun Tricks OR Treats.  Our projects center around fun techniques (tricks) or creative ways to package up Halloween goodies (treats).  In some cases, you might get BOTH!  What fun!  After you read my post, I  hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.  

I love Halloween and I love treats!!  StampinUp! has done a phenomenal job with the Halloween stamp sets, DSP and embellishments this year and I have had so much fun playing with them.  For this project, I decided to use the “Box in a Bag”.  I found a great tutorial with a video on Splitcoaststampers (, and once I decided on the papers I wanted to use, the construction of the box was a snap!  It looks like it takes a long time, so you can really impress your recipient!  Of course I had to use one of the awesome spider web doilies, too!  The sentiment and doily are popped up with dimentionals, and the bag is tied shut with bakers twine.  I like the size of this bag-I followed the directions from the tutorial, so it is 5 1/2 inches high and it has plenty of room for candy or home made treats.  If you want a smaller bag, all you have to do is cut the DSP down to the size you want.  I love that versatility!



Stamps:  Howl-o-ween

Ink:  Memento Black

Paper:  Tangelo Twist, Whisper White, Happy Haunting DSP

Misc:   Basic Black Baker’s Twine, Spider Web doily, Circle Framelits, Scallop Circle punch
