I was making some Halloween Treats, and thought, why not make some Fall Treats to hand out during the months of October and November!?
I decorated a Stampin' UP! Pillow Box with a strip of Toil & Trouble designer paper (the pumpkin design), then die cut lots of leaves with the Detailed Leaves thinlit dies. The Pillow Boxes are super reasonable and perfect for treats. Only $5 for a pack of 10!! click here! The GREAT thing is… NO die cutting, folding, measuring or adhesive is required for the Pillow Boxes!! yay!
Secret #1 for making these leaves look REALLY AMAZING is some Shimmery Mist. I mixed Stampin' UP! Bright Copper Shimmer Paint in a Stampin' Spritzer with some rubbing alcohol and sprayed the cardstock. You can spray it prior to die cutting, or after.. it doesn't matter.

The "enjoy" tag was created with the Takeout Treats bundle, pg 50 in the Holiday catalog.
Secret #2 for make some amazing fall leaf die cuts is… Spray Copper Shimmer mist onto cardstock (I used Crumb Cake), then emboss it with the Corrugated Embossing Folder for amazing texture, then die cut the leaves!! You can die cut them first, then emboss… either way works! Or you can even spray them last.. it really doesn't matter.
Below are some of the leaves I die cut, and tied with a cute little tag with the new 3/16" Braided Linen Thread. I punched a 1" circle out of cardstock and layered all the leaf pieces onto the circle, then added the circle to the box. The leaves are die cut in the corrugated paper as described above, and Grapefruit Grove cardstock, shimmered with Bright Copper Shimmer Paint mist.
I started with a piece of Toil & Trouble pumpkin design paper wrapped around the box.. you can use any size.. mine was about 4" x 8". I also added a piece of shimmered Powder Pink ruffled ribbon… when you add the copper shimmer paint to the ribbon, it gives it a fun fall look, and it's not so pink.
The Fall themed KitKat bars seemed like a great treat to put inside!
