Spooky Delights Candy Bar Card

SD3

I had fun making this little candy bar card using C.C. Designs’ new Halloween set (available from All That Scraps)!   Where’s the candy bar?  It’s in a little pocket on the back side of the card.  I have some black twill tied around the bar with a little tag attached with white string.  You pull the twill and out comes the bar (and it’s FULL size! :) ).  Here’s how I did it:

I cut the black cardstock to 6 1/2″ x 11″.  Score at 3 1/4″, 6 1/2″, 6 3/4″ and 10″; fold as shown.  Your cardstock will look like this …………………………………………………>

(mountain fold, valley fold, valley fold, valley fold)

Fold the back flap (“C”) to the left toward the back (fold line) of the card front (“A”). 

Apply liquid glue or tacky tape to adhere the flap.  I used Tombow Mono Multi…………………………………………………………..>

You now have your pocket for the candy bar.  If you’d like, you can punch a hole (through both layers of the “pocket”) along the right edge and thread ribbon through as described here.

Now you can decorate your card any way you’d like. 

I chose this cool, shiny eyeball paper, adding some glossy black dots in each “eye” using a 3-d gel pen.  I stamped the bat and sentiment, trimming so that the bat’s wings come “out of the box.” 

The sentiment panel is raised on dimensionals, but before adhering it to the patterned paper, I tucked in the little ghost.  It just worked out that he can slide up and down as his tail is “hooked in” by the pop dot in the lower right corner.

Tie twill and tag onto the candy bar and slide it in!…………………………………………………..>

Lastly, I made this little 2-4-6-8 box for some more “spooky delights.”  I covered each side with small panels of eyeball paper, adding the black dots and a few stitches, then punched two holes through all layers, inserting and knotting the twill to close the box. 

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
