SSC HAUNTED HALLOW HOP...

Welcome to Simply Scrapping Crafts First Annual Haunted Hallow Hop! We have quite a line-up for you today filled with lots of tricks and treats! Now what would trick or treating be without candy? Eye candy that is! Our DT has been busy at work in Dr. Jekyll's lab creating just the right formula to inspire your hauntingly sweet projects this year. Be sure to comment all of the blogs along the way because we have "hidden" some extra special treats along the way. There is no way to tell where we have them stashed, so be sure not to miss out! Some of our hop hosts are giving an extra entry for becoming a follower. Who doesn't appreciate more chances to win right? All winner will be announced on Tuesday, October 19, 2010 via the DT blogs and also in the hop room at SSC, which can easily be accessed here . You have until 11:59PM EST tonight, October 16, 2010 to comment for your chance to win. All you need to do is click on each link and leave a comment as you hop along to the end of the list. Are you ready for a frightfully wicked Haunted Hallow Hop? Let's get to hoppin'!

PAPER TOWEL ROLL TREAT PILLOW BOXES:

TUTORIAL:
You can also make these cute little treat boxes with toilet paper rolls too!
STEP 1: Get an empty paper towel roll (or TP roll)


STEP 2: Flatten it with a bone folder for a crisp edge.

STEP 3: Measure out the size of your pillow boxes (not necessary with TP rolls). The roll is used was 11 inches long. I got two 3 3/4" boxes and 1 3 1/2" box out of my roll.

STEP 4: Add a strong adhesive to one side of the roll.

STEP 5: Carefully line up paper, adhere. Next add adhesive to the other side of the roll and wrap the paper around. Secure with adhesive.

STEP 6: Push in one end of the roll. Use your fingers to squeeze the fold a little better so it stays.


STEP 7: Repeat step 6 with the other side of the pinched fold. It will look like this:
STEP 8: Fill with desired items.

STEP 9: Repeat steps 6 and 7 to complete the box and decorate accordingly.
