Hey, hey craft friends! I’m back with a few more Halloween treat ideas to share with you. I’m excited to share three new products from We R Memory keepers that help create a gift bag or candy treat box in a few easy steps.
I’ve worked with Lifestyle Crafts for over a year and a half now and I have to say they have some of the best dies. I was thrilled to find out they recently merged with We R Memory Keepers, whose products I absolutely love. I’ve shared plenty of tutorials using We R Memory Keepers tools and today I get to share a few new products they recently released. Pssst..there’s also a We R Memory Keepers tool giveaway happening later this week. :)
We R Memory keepers sent me some of their new punch boards to try and I’m in love! Remember the DIY Envelope Tutorial I shared using the envelope punch board? These new punch boards are very similar, they help you create your own gift boxes in various sizes. The instructions are printed right on the board, along with a two-sided punch and bone folder for crisp fold lines.
I can’t get over the candy punch board treat boxes. Look at how cute that classic candy shape is! I made a bunch of these candy boxes ranging in sizes but I have to say this small box is my favorite. It only fits a small piece of candy but it’s perfect for classroom treats.
To make them you simply trim your paper to size, punch one side by aligning the paper with the lines and diamond shape, then flip it over and repeat.
The gift bag punch board is great for creating a small bag in a pinch. You simply cut your paper to the size you’d like, punch according to the instructions, fold, and glue together. You can make a bag in under 5 minutes using the punch board. This is great for those who don’t have a die cutting machine or need something quick that doesn’t require a set up or computer.
The back of the punch also acts like a hole punch to string ribbon through the bag (the candy box punch creates a scalloped edge).
We R Memory Keepers also came out with chevron washi tape. Eeekk! This stuff is amazing! I love adding chevron washi tape to my scrapbook layouts, paper crafts, and cards. It has a great hold and comes in a variety of colors. I plan to use the red and grey for Christmas cards this year.
I paired the white and black chevron washi tape with my favorite mini pocket die that I also used to make Valentine Treats. It’s perfect for a fun size candy. You can tie bakers twine around the bag or add a personalized tag.
I think the best part about the boards is that they’re perfect for holiday crafts and treats. You can use them for Halloween, Christmas, Valentines and birthdays!
