October 2022 - Stamping Sunday Blog Hop

Hello Stamping Friends! Today, I’m super-excited to share the October 2022 Stamping Sunday Blog Hop. This hop is hosted by Sara Levin and we share on the second Sunday of every month. Our theme for the month is “Treats Not Tricks” where we are sharing treat packaging for a variety of occasions. Welcome, I’m so happy you are here today! 
I originally wanted to make Halloween treats for this hop, BUT I was itching to use the Sweet Gingerbread stamp set and Gingerbread House Dies from the Stampin’ Up!® July - December Mini Catalog. I’ve had this set for a while now and it was time time to ink it up! So, my treats are kind of Christmas themed. But really, the box could be used for a lot of occasions. New neighbor, friends who bought a new home, or a “just because” treat for a friend. Lots of possibilities here! 
This is a really easy box to create. Nothing too fancy. What I like about this box is that it lends itself nicely to lots of different treat options. Stuff it with chocolate, add some paper shreds and a gift card…maybe a few holiday-scented tea light candles. If it fits, it gifts! 
Basically, get your semi-flat treats in a cello bag and pile them up to fit in the box. I used (my favorite) Ghirardelli chocolate squares. They are a good size and chocolate is almost always a fun treat. 
Treat Box Measurements and Details:
  • Poppy Parade Cardstock: 8” x 5”
  • Score on long side at 1/2”, 1-1/2”, 4-1/4” and 5-1/4” 
  • Score on short side at 1”

My second project was inspired by one of the awesome bags available in the Stampin’ Up Annual Catalog. The Peekaboo Treat Bags are SO fun! I received a set of these sweet treat bags at my monthly team meeting and couldn’t WAIT to use them. The come in a pack of 10 with 5 white and 5 kraft colored bags. I just love how easy they are to decorate. Just a little pop of DSP and some fun images and BOOM, a super-adorable treat bag! If you are like me and have maybe overlooked these little bags, check ‘em out. You can fill them with SO many things, I went with some Werther’s candies, because not only are they shiny and fun…but they also taste pretty yummy!
