Welcome to Creative Chelsey!

Prepping the Treat Boxes
1- Cut along the seam of 2 treat boxes (one in each pattern).
2- Trim off the flaps using a paper trimmer
3- Cut the stripes strip to 5.25" x 2"
     On the extra pieces cut off the flap so you have a 2" x 2" square
     and then cut this into 2 - 1" x 2"
4- Cut the polka dots in half so you get 2 - 2" x 4" rectangles.
     Then cut one vertically so you get 2 - 1" x 4" pieces
     Cut the other in half so you get 2 - 2" x 2" and then in half again
     so you get 4 - 1" x 2" pieces

Card #1

1- Adhere the 5.25" x 2" stripe paper centered on top of the black 5.25" x 2.25" of cardstock. Add this to your card base on the right side leaving about .25" of space and about 1/8" on top and bottom.
2- Using glue dotes add 3 skeletons to 3 small vellum circles from the kit. Place dimensionals on the back making sure they are behind the skeletons so they don't show. Add these skeletons to the stripe paper vertically on top of each other so they look like they are standing on top of each other.
3- Stamp your greeting on one of the labels in the kit using black ink. Adhere this to the center of the small strip of black cardstock. Then place dimensionals on the back and add to the left of the bottom skeleton.
4- Tie a bow with about 8" of white bakers twine and using a glue dot adhere it to the bottom left of the greeting.

All done!

Card #2

1- Stamp both skeletons on the 2" x 4" white cardstock in black ink.
2- Stamp the greeting on the 0.5" x 2" white cardstock in black ink.
3- Stamp the "eat if you dare" on a headstone piece from the kit.
4- Begin assembling by adhering the polka dot strips 1" x 4" to the top and bottom of your skeleton piece. I placed it to there were about 2.5 rows of polka dots showing. Adhere to the top part of your card with some snail.
5- Take the 3 1" strips of pumpkin pie, gorgeous grape, and basic gray and cut out a flag shape from one side of each one.
6- Arrange these strips below the skeletons on your card however you would like so the flag shape is on the right side.
7- Trim off any strips that are hanging off the card on the left with some scissors.
8- Glue a little scrap of cardstock to the back of the black tag over the circle in the hole of the tag. So the circle doesn't pop out.
9- Add the black tag from the kit with some snail over the strips on the left side.
10- Trim the white strip with the greeting and flag both ends.
11- With dimensionals pop up the headstone greeting and place it centered over the black tag. Also add the greeting with dimensionals and place this near the headstone.
12- Tie a bow with 8" of white bakers twine and place it over the circle in the tag.

All done!

Card #3

1- On the gray cardstock place the 1" x 2" strips in a pattern. See picture.
2- Adhere the gorgeous grape strip over the center seam. Add to the center of the white cardbase.
3- Get the purple tag and adhere with some dimensionals in to the left & center at an angle.
4- Glue the spiderweb over the purple tag in the center.
5- Use snail to adhere 2 bony hands to your card. One to the left and under the tag over the gorgeous grape strip. The other to the right under the tag and under the strip of gorgeous grape cardstock.
6- Stamp a greeting in one of the labels from the kit in black ink. Place it with dimensionals on the right of the spiderweb and between the hand and the strip of cardstock.
7- Use 8" of white bakers twine and tie a bow through the top of the tag.

All done!
