Halloween is quickly approaching so it's time to start thinking about treats for all the good little ghosts and goblins that will be stopping by for a Trick or a Treat!
These little pockets are quick and easy to make with just a few simple steps. With help from the darling Joy Clair stamp set called Trick or Treat you'll be all set for the big night in no time at all.
Step 1 - Cut a piece of foiled paper 6x6.
Step 2 - Decorate the foiled paper by stamping desired images on the paper using StazOn or StazOn Pigment ink.
Step 3 - You can make a single color or two color pocket. If you choose to make a two color pocket simply adhere the stamped square to a colored square as shown. Either a single ply or double ply of the Rinea foiled paper will work fine for this project as it is very sturdy and holds it's shape perfectly.
Step 4 - Fold one corner of the square over to meet the opposite corner and crease with your finger (no additional tools are necessary).
Step 5 - Fold the right corner of the triangle over so the point is centered on the left side of the triangle and crease.
Step 6 - Fold the left corner of the triangle over so it aligns with the previously folded corner.
Step 7 - The final step to create your candy pocket is to fold down one of the top flaps at the top of the triangle. This will secure the folded pieces and create the pocket for the candy.
And here is what your little treat pocket will look like. Plenty of room for lots of goodies to please all of your little ghouls.
You can use the pockets as is or you can embellish them as I did below...
Die-cut circles and medallions from desired color(s) of Rinea Foiled Paper. Stamp and color several pumpkins from the Trick or Treat set of stamps.
If desired you can make a rosette by cutting a 1" x 12" strip of foiled paper and creasing every 1/4". Fold the paper accordion style and adhere one end to the other to create a circle/rosette.
For a worn look, sand the upper edges of the rosette.
Affix a stamped pumpkin to each rosette or medallion and glue it to each candy pocket.
