SUO Challenge #30 - Treats!

The challenge this week over at SUO Challenges* is to make something to hold a treat. This is definitely the time of year when little edible treats are handed out, and I don't mean just for Halloween, either!

My little pop-up treat started with my trusty Big Shot and the Matchbox Die. That little matchbox is so stinkin' easy to assemble, you could make a bunch of them in no time at all. They could be decorated to use as party favors, or as place markers for your Thanksgiving (or Christmas, or Hanukkah) table, or as wedding favors (tied with a bit of tulle, perhaps). The possibilities are nearly endless!

The Hershey Nuggets tucked inside were wrapped with 1"x3" pieces of Frightful Sight Designer Series Paper. The wrapping slips off to get to the manufacturer's wrapper.

Hershey has a policy about putting "other" wrapping on their products. It's okay as long as it isn't completely adhered over their label, rendering it unreadable by the consumer. You can read more on their policy here.  Just something to keep in mind, if you wanted to sell pre-bagged or packaged goodies at a craft fair or fund raiser!

* If you are considering joinging in any of our challenges, please, please be sure to follow the guidelines and use Stampin' Up! products ONLY! And that doesn't just mean stamps, embellies, and cardstock - it means tools as well. We've had to disregard some fabulous entries because Nestabilities were used (and yes, we can tell), or the entry was posted BEFORE our challenge was posted. Don't let your fabulous creation be disqualified!
