Bat Brownie Treats

Someone a while back told me about Bat Brownies that they found at the store – so I wanted to find them an use them to make a treat with the Trick or Tweet stamp set and the little elephant dressed like a bat.  It took me a while to find them but I did locate them at the big W store.  And now recently I’ve seen them in several stores.  I think I was just too far ahead of Halloween to begin with. 

I basically just created a box that wrapped around the brownie.  Our Grid paper is perfect to help create a box for a treat.  Lay what you want to cover on the paper and trace around it for the height and width.  Flip it on its side to determine the depth.  Be sure you include a flap that overlaps for the adhesive to hold it together.  I normally start with scraps to do my first measurements and then adjust before cutting for my final piece.   After getting the card stock sleeve set just right, add a piece of Designer Series paper around it and then add ribbon and a tag to finish. 

Supply List

  • Trick of Tweet stamp set
  • Granny Apple Green card stock
  • Whisper White card stock
  • Nature’s Poem Designer Series paper (I used the Blackberry Bliss pattern)
  • Memento Black ink
  • Stampin’ Blends: Smoky Slate, Blackberry Bliss, Granny Apple Green
  • Granny Apple Green Textured Weave Ribbon

Now go find bat brownies and make your own little treats.  Enjoy!

More Trick or Tweet

Hello Stamping Friends.  I’m trying to get back on schedule now. 

My little dog Aspen was very very sick and admitted to critical care in the specialist Animal Hospital. After two visits to my regular vet I had to take him there to the ER and they admitted him to the hospital.  He was there for 4 days and I brought him home for one night and then he had new issues and I took him back to the ER and he stayed for 11 more days.  He was one sick doggie. 

But he finally turned the corner and I was able to get him last Friday – which happened to by my Fall retreat weekend.  I brought him back to the cabin and took care of him there along with all the ladies that attended the retreat.  They were a great help to me and loved on him.  Now we have been home for a few days and he continues to improve.  

So now I’m trying to finish sharing all these cute projects with the Trick or Tweet stamp set.  I will try to pick up where I left off.

Today’s project is one of our Mini Pizza Boxes.  Inside I found snacks cakes that are little pumpkin shaped cakes – I’m pretty sure they are pumpkin pie flavored.  I’m not a pumpkin fan so I didn’t eat one.  But any round fairly flat treat will fit in these food safe boxes.   

To color the box I used my Sponge Brayer – I used two colors – Pumpkin Pie and Mango Melody.  I wanted kind of an ombre effect so I used the Pumpkin Pie in the center section where the box folds and used the Mango Melody on either end.  Just roll over with the sponge brayer until you achieve the darkness you desire.  I did spray the box with plain hairspray – that’s what we used as a sealer in the old days and I still had a can in my craft closet.  Then decorate the box!
