Preserving BOOs

Had made these treat holders before for Valentine's Day and decided to make them up for Halloween. I had originally seen the video by Kay Kalthoff how to use the Stampin Up Perfectly Preserved stamp set and matching dies. Here is her blog: This project is from August 2012 and she has dimensions on her blog as well as her video.

The only difference for my nugget holders is that I did not cut out the notch as suggested but put my jar front on the insert piece and then punched out the oval. This way you will not see the bottom of the insert that holds the four nugget candies in your holder. I also put my printed jar tops on my front and back jar pieces before I assembled my jars and insert piece. This way the jar toppers match on the jar pieces. I also did not punch an oval in my back jar piece so you can not see the nugget candies from the back. Here is a photo of each nugget holder:

Used various card stock scraps for the wrappers for the nugget candies and also the jar toppers. For the purple holder I used ColorBox black in and for the black holder I used ColorBox white ink. These holders go together quickly and are well received when given as treat holders.

These holders are some of the items I am making for the gals at work:

Thanks to Kay for her video and how-to's for this project. TFL and YOLO
