Stampin' Up! Hamburger Box Monsters

 Stampin' Up! Hamburger Box Monsters!
Stampin' Up! sent me the Stampin' Up! Hamburger Box Die to play with!
 I already own a Big Shot machine as well as the accessories.
Make these adorable little boxes...use them as goodie bags for parties...
Prizes for the BEST costume awards...or gifts!
You will need:
Stampin' Up! Hamburger Box Die
A Big Shot and Extended Cutting Big Shot Accessory Pads ,
 Premium Extended Crease Big Shot Accessory Pad ...
Colored cardstock paper
Scissors and glue dots
Various sizes of circle punches
Paper cutter/chopper (optional)
 Make your sandwich.
Crease pad
paper to cut
hamburger box die
1 sheet of paper for filler
clear plate

If done correctly, you will end up with a perfectly cut and scored box.

 You will need to cut along 6 lines...
so they fold in like triangle tabs.
Then put a glue dot on the top of the tabs and fold them up
 and stick them on the flaps on the sides.
 Then these little tabs slip right into the slits!
It sounds complicated...but it's not--I promise!
 Now use the circle punches to decorate the boxes!
We made little monsters!
 The finished dimensions are:
4" square, 2" tall
Finished inside box is about 2 1/2" square.
They aren't big enough for a hamburger...but they are perfect size for treats!
 They would be great party favors!
You could make them fit the theme of any party!
 We are going to fill them with candy, tie them with twine and
 give them as Best costume prizes on Halloween!
 Super fun paper craft for kids to decorate!
 It's a little pricey to get started with Big Shot dies and paper crafting...but
once you have the machine and the plates, the dies are reasonable and super versatile!
Which monster is your favorite?

Pirate Hooks!

 Pirate Hooks!  Arrrrrrgh!
32 oz. plastic cups
Plastic hanger
(clippers and torch...or flame)
Duct tape
Pirate Stickers...optional. husband is amazing!
He is the best builder, maker, and pirate that I know...but he's not a blogger.
So he sped off to the garage and fashioned these hooks
 from plastic hangers without taking a picture!

Here's the idea:
Cut the hook off the hanger...cut a straight piece from the side of the hanger.
Use a torch or candle flame to remelt the 2 plastic pieces together.
(you could duct tape them or hot glue them too)
Now poke a hole in the base of the plastic cup...
and push the hook inside!
That long stick inside the cup gives you something
 to hold onto while wearing yer hook!
 Now everyone can spend time decorating their hooks!
We used lots of fun Duck Brand® Tape!
 Wrap the hooks in silver tape for the perfect pirate touch!
 Perfect for the seafaring noble man in you!
And yes.  Every pirate has lost a hand.  It's a historical fact.
 Always so fun to dress up!
( donuts at Krispy Kreme on "Talk like a Pirate Day" weren't so bad either!)
