Treat Boxes!

Don't you just love when you discover additional uses for your dies?  I tell you... this is going to get your creative ideas flowing and you are going to immediately go check which other dies you can adapt to this fun packaging idea!
Check out the Amuse Studio Blog where Linda shows you how you can make a 3-D box out of almost any shape die that you own and it is super easy! All you need is to understand the basics of making a box and then adapt it based on the size of the die and box you'd like to make.  Cool, right?!

More Treats!

I created this cute little pocket treat for the mini Ghirardelli chocolates.  I used three pieces of foam adhesive to adhere the piece of candy to the tag.  Tuck the chocolate mini inside the pocket and leave the tag on the outer edge to decorate the front of the pocket.  I used the Tiny attacher to staple the sides closed.

Amuse Studio's new Any Other Night stamp set is part of the October Collection (available now).  The set includes 5 stamps and a matching die set is available.  The star of this set is the witch on a broomstick that will be perfect for all your Halloween treats & cards!

The Amuse Studio Pillow Box die works great for Halloween treats.  The Fishtail tag was die cut with Vanilla card stock.  To give it a vintage look, wipe the Wheat ink pad across the tag.  To give the witch a bit of extra punch, use the quickie glue pen and Amuse Studio sparkly Onyx glitter!
