Hello, We R friends! Tessa Buys here, and today I’m sharing a the Halloween pillow boxes I made for my kids using the Template Studio:
First, I chose which designer poster boards I would use – black glitter and black and white stripes. I also gathered American Crafts Bootiful Night embellishments and a piece of yellow mylar paper by Bazzill.
Next, I followed the easy instructions for creating four of the smallest pillow boxes.
I added a special touch by using the new circle Clear-Cut Punch to create a “moon” on the front of the black glitter pillow boxes. It was so easy to line up the punch exactly where I wanted it.
I cut a square of the mylar paper and hot glued it to the back of the punched out circle. Then I assembled and glued the rest of the pillow box.
To embellish this All Hallows Eve box, I hot glued Bootiful Night die-cuts around my punched moon and secured flair to the front with a little bit of whispy, silver thread. Star stickers finish off the spooky scene.
This Happy Halloween box is embellished with a Bootiful Night cobweb, more flair and thread, and die-cuts.
Here I created a scene by adhering a haunted house beneath the mylar moon. Some stickers and flair finished it up.
Trick or Treat says the skull, embellished by stickers and more flair.
I had a lot of fun making these pillow boxes and my kids can’t wait until I fill them up with Halloween treats. Are you gifting treats this Halloween? Pull out your template studio and make some easy-fun boxes! Happy crafting!
Hello We R Memory Keepers fans! Soraya here to share with you some cute Halloween treats boxes! Yes, Halloween is around the corner and it’s almost time to prepare cute candy packaging for our little ones!
To make these boxes you will need the amazing 123 Punch Board, some 6×6 Halloween patterned papers, cardstock, embellishments and natural twine.
Follow the instructions (you can find them in the 123 Punch Board guide book) to create the boxes from the 6×6 patterned papers. They are so easy and fast to make, you will love it!
Once all the boxes are folded and ready to be assembled, grab candies and sweets to fill them up! You can also add a spider or another creepy item inside them haha!
Now it’s time to make bows and I love making bows with the 123 Punch board! Use purple, black, orange, green and kraft cardstock strips to punch and shape the bows. Stick them on the top of each box before adding the decorations.
The fun part is here: let’s decorate them with diecuts, brads, sequins and stickers! I used paper and embellishments from our sister brand, Pebbles Inc.
Yay! The candy boxes are now ready for the Halloween party! Kids will love the outside and what’s on the inside, yummy and creepy, perfect for the occasion!
I hope you had fun joining me and I hope that you will enjoy creating cute candy boxes too ! Happy creating everyone and until next time !
Natural twine and sequins.
Hello everyone! It’s Eva Pizarro on the blog today sharing a quick and easy way to use your DIY Party Board to make Treat Bags for your Halloween parties.
The DIY Party Board is all you need to make your party decorations a success. With it you can make party hats, cupcake wrappers, party horns and of course treat bags.
To make the treat tags cut your paper following the board instructions. I am using Pebbles’ Midnight Haunting collection.
Wrap the papers and secure the treat bags with your hot glue gun. Fill them with candies and close them.
To make the embellishments I used my Fringe and Score Board and made some paper rosettes.
I also used my Ribbon Cutter to seal the edge of my ribbons. No more fraying, yay!
The treat bag is quite big and you can put lots of candies inside. These treat bags would be perfect to give to coworkers or maybe as favors for your Halloween party.
Want another quick idea using the DIY Party Board? Make small black party hats and glue them to a circular base to create some cute witch hats!
Thanks for reading my post and I hope you have a fantastic day,
Hello there, We R fans, Laura here today. I love making treat bags for all the holidays. Sometimes I use them for little gifts, other times I use them to package things up for the kids in my children’s classes, and sometimes they are simply for my own kids to give them a special little treat.
The Goodie Bag Guide is the perfect tool to quickly make customized treat bags for any holiday. Today, I am sharing how to make these cute Halloween treat bags. The base of each bag is the adorable glassine Halloween paper.
One of my favorite features of the Goodie Bag Guide is you don’t need a lot of extra tools to create almost any size bag. You use the guide to trim your paper to size. Then, using the correct pieces of the guide, you trim the top and bottom of the bag.
Lastly, use the flat edge to score and fold your bag. Assemble each bag using adhesive.
Then, the fun part begins of embellishing the bags. For the first one, I create a flag shape using the Banner Punch Board and some white and black cardstock.
I wanted to make a spider to go with the web paper. I used letters and symbols from my Thickers pack to create a fun little spider to go on the white tag.
I attached everything to the front of the bag and wrapped it with baker’s twine.
For the candy paper bag, I used purple cardstock and striped acetone paper to create a wrap around the bag. I attached a cute orange ribbon bow to the front of the wrap.
The last bag had the cute pumpkin paper as the base for the bag. The pumpkin paper was fun on it’s own, but I wanted a little something extra. So, I cut out a flag shape from orange paper and a dotted acetate sheet. I attached them to the bag and wrapped up the whole thing with twine.
I think the bags are so cute. They can be filled with candy, little trinkets, or even a home baked treat. The great thing about the glassine papers is that they can be used to hold food without making a mess.

Happy Friday friends! We’re closing off Card Week with a special guest designer, Betsy Veldman! Betsy is a wife, a SAHM to three super kids and is addicted to her paper and scissors. She loves scrapbooking and papercrafting of all kinds and is an expert cardmaker and stamper. We’re thrilled to have her!
Betsy had the chance to play around with the Frame Punch Board and some elements from the Pebbles Girl Squad collection. Check out the beautiful card she created. We love all the yummy layers!
Here’s what Betsy has to say about her card:
“The Girl Squad collection is filled with my favorite colors…it’s so fun and happy! The Frame Punch board is an amazing (yet simple!) tool. I was impressed with how quick and easy it was to make frames of all sizes. I cut three frames from the Girl Squad patterned papers, starting with the same overall rectangle size, and just changing the width of the frame. I also cut the same size frames from plain cardstock — two of each size, then layered everything to create lots of dimension! I sandwiched some diecuts between the layers, and used one of the sentiment diecuts inside the smallest frame. For a fun finishing touch, I used the awesome striped washi tape from the Girl Squad collection around the edges of my stack of frames!”
Thanks for joining us for Card Week! We hope you enjoy World Card Making Day tomorrow, and that you get the chance to create some beautiful cards.
Hello crafty friends! It’s Aly here today sharing some card inspiration. I love making handmade cards and sharing them with friends. I collect them in baskets and then pull one out whenever I have the need. It adds that extra special touch when I need to share something with a friend or loved one. I also love how helpful We R tools are for cards. They make the creative process faster and more fun!
Check out this festive Halloween card I made using the Pink Paislee Spellcast collection, the new Clear Cut Circle Punch, and some of my other favorite tools!
I started by trimming my card layers, and trimming and scoring my card base with the Dial Trimmer. It’s so convenient to have multiple blades in one tool!
Next I used the Circle Clear Cut Punch to create a shaker pocket window on my card. Then I punched out a 3×4 inch frame with the Frame Punch Board and placed it around the shaker pocket.
I added a stitched border around the shaker window with my Stitch Happy and some Gold Metallic Thread. Tip: to sew the circle border I traced it lightly with a pencil first, and then sewed it by rotating the handwheel to control the speed.
Finally, I assembled and embellished my card with a few stickers and die cuts. I tied some Gold Metallic Stitch Happy Thread around the sentiment to add emphasis.
What I love about the new Clear Cut Punches is that you can punch anywhere on your paper. I’m excited to try this technique with the other shape punches! Thanks for joining me today, and happy cardmaking friends!
Hello WRMK fans and welcome back to the blog. It’s Chantalle with you today and I’d like to share some cards I have created with the help of clever WeR Punch Boards, LetterPress Kit and the fantastic new Dial Trimmer.
This card uses beautiful Bazzill Premium Cardstock in Rose Quartz. The pack comes with four different prints, one being a soft ombré, which suited my card idea perfectly. It’s been layered up with some Amy Tangerine On a Whim #378746 Chipboard Stickers and some hand cut elements from On a Whim papers.
The cardstock has been de-bossed in a floral print with hot pink magenta pigment ink. I will admit to having a bit of a crush on this letterpress technique! This was my first time experimenting with Letterpress, which comes in a very handy Starter Kit and includes everything you need to get started. *Note: You will need a tool like the Evolution Advanced to be able to create a de-bossed effect.
Right at the bottom of this pile of embellishments, are some pretty On a Whim Washi tapes. I love their tropical vibes! I’ve also used my new Washi Tape Chomper to create the perfect pennant shape. This clever little tool is so easy to use – simple measure the size tape you have, align the tape and then press to cut the shape.
Here is an image of the Letterpress just before it’s rolled through the Evolution Advanced. I adhered the plate to the base, then inked it up, aligned the paper and then rolled it through the Evolution.
This is a card I created using the same ‘Hello’ plate, combined with the word ‘sunshine’ (both included in the starter kit). I gave some Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock a light watercolour wash and then inked up the plates with yellow pigment ink and debossed it.
The sunny brights give this card a very happy vibe!
This next card is very simple in it’s composition.
I’ve used my Dial Trimmer to trim some thin strips of patterned paper, having fun with the different edge finishes!
I laid all the strips up, adhering them to the front of my card, then trimmed off the excess with my Supreme Ruler.
The beveled and scalloped edges have a relaxed feel to them and the strips co-ordinate nicely with the fun On a Whim Chipboard Stickers which I have used to add my greeting.
My final card turned out so fun and I’m really excited to share it with you!
It’s a self contained card and envelope in one, which has a perforated area which, when pulled back, reveals a greeting.
To start, I used my Envelope Punch Board to create an envelope for a 4×6 landscape card. This punch board is a firm favourite of mine! Once I had measured and trimmed my paper, I went about creating the envelope, but didn’t seal it. Instead, I used my ruler to draw two lines, in the centre of the front of the card, about an inch and a half apart.
I then used the perforated blade on the Dial Trimmer over the lines I had drawn.
Next I created the little postcard for inside the envelope. I typed up a message on my Typecast Typewriter and embellished the striped paper with some On a Whim clear and chipboard stickers.
I placed the card, face-down onto the prepared envelope sheet and folded it up, adhering it shut.
The final step, was creating a little tab so the recipient would know to pull open the perforated area. I used my Tab Punch Board to create a ‘small’ side tab and then, used a blade to very carefully cut a small slit on the far right hand side of the perfed section. I slid the tab inside, making sure it was well adhered, so it wouldn’t come off when in use.
The moment of truth…. Success!
I’m so happy with how this card turned out – such a fun surprise card, thanks to my Dial Trimmer!
Thanks so much for joining me today. I hope you have as much fun creating with these fabulous tools as I do!

Hey We R Memory Keepers friends and fans, Becki here to share with you an adorable Halloween card that I created with two of my favorite We R Memory Keeper tools, the Dial Trimmer and the Frame Punch Board.
The moment I started playing with the dial trimmer I loved the scalloped blade. I used the scalloped blade on several strips of patterned paper from the Pebbles Midnight Haunting collection.
Each strip of patterned paper has a scallop along the bottom edge of the strip. The scalloped strip was added with the scallop blade on the dial trimmer. After I had the scalloped strips cut, I used the Frame Punch Board to cut a four inch frame out of a black piece of patterned paper from the same Midnight Haunting Collection. Using a strong liquid adhesive, I layered the strips and adhered them to the back of the frame. Once the strops were in place, I ruffled the scalloped edges slightly to create a little bit of dimension and to make the scallops more noticeable.
Because I wanted the scalloped strips to stand out, I kept the embellishment to a minimum. I adhered a chipboard sentiment and a ghost die cut in the center of the frame with a strong liquid adhesive. Then, to finish things off, I added a few puffy stickers.
The card base for this card is created from patterned paper. The card front is five inches square with rounded corners. It was so easy to round the corners of this card with the Frame Punch Board.
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I can’t wait to share this card AND make more of them using the same design. Thank you for stopping by the We R Memory Keepers blog. I’ll see you again soon!
