A Year of Celebrations Blog Hop: Halloween

InKing Royalty Blog Hop: Halloween

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s August Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month’s projects celebrate Welcome to InKing Royalty’s September Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month’s projects are all about Halloween. Prepare yourself for wonderful mix of spooky, scary and sweet. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Halloween DIY Candy Tins

Rectangle tins are a fun and simple way to upgrade your treat game. I packaged these Halloween treats with the Magic in this Night Suite Collection.

The gothic designs and sophisticated grunge patterns lend to the mystique of Halloween night. It truly is a magical collection.

I created a band with the black bat pattern and wrapped that with 1-1/2″ Metallic Mesh Ribbon. This ribbon has a cobweb look, but like other Stampin’ Up! ribbons, it’s a joy to work with and easy to handle.

There is Magic in this Night

The sentiment was embossed in white on a Pretty Peacock pattern and the frame was die cut. I embossed the bats with clear embossing powder over Basic Black cardstock and die cut them.

Candy tins you can customize.

An added bonus when the belly band is removed is the surprise message hidden underneath. Did you know you could emboss directly on these tins? You’ll need a little patience and a light, steady touch because the surface is slippery when stamped, but the results are worth it.

    I was going to make something with these tins – until I realized I didn’t order them (got two sets of the round tins, instead). After seeing your project, I’m glad I didn’t. This is incredible – but the embossed tin is perfection! Love it! So glad you hopped with us, Shawn!

    You never fail to surprise! Your belly band is adorable. But the embossing on the tin is unique and unexpected! It is just perfect.
