Basic Black Card Stock (item #102851) – 1 piece 3” x 4”
Pencil & Eraser

1. Score your card base at 4 ¼ “ (Pumpkin Pie Card Stock), then crease using your bone folder.

2. Stamp the Ghost image on the 3” x 4 ¼” piece of Pumpkin Pie Card Stock
a. Because the stamp is large, you may find it easier to use the brayer to ink the stamp.
b. Let the image dry for a moment, then trim.
c. Punch out the center using the 1 ¾” paper punch … set center aside, you will need it later.

3. Center the stamped image (left to right) on the bottom of the card base.
b. Image should be about ¼” from the bottom. Using the pencil, lightly draw in the circle from the image onto the card base. Remove stamped image & punch out the drawn circle on the card base using the 1 ¾” circle punch. Erase any pencil marks.

4. Stamp Happy Halloween on the card front.

5. Inside Pocket –
a. Put sticky strip (1 strip only) on the sides and bottom of the 1 ¼” x 4 ¼” piece of cardstock. If you put it on the top of the piece you will seal the pocket.
b. Attach to left side bottom … it should cover up approximately ½ of the circle.

6. Open the card base so that your white grid shows thru the circle … have the front of the card facing up.
a. Remove sticky strip protective film from the Sweet Treat Cup.
b. Center the cup around the front of the card base circle and adhere. Be sure you have a strong, secure fit. Use your bone folder if necessary.
c. Using a combination of Snail adhesive & Sticky Strip, adhere your ghost image over your Sweet Treat Cup … Be sure to keep it straight.

7. Put Snail Adhesive on the lower half of the stamped image (EEK You’re Sweet) and attach to the top of the black piece (3” width) of card stock. From the inside opening, fill the plastic cup with candy, buttons, confetti, etc. Then slide the black piece in the pocket to close. Your cup is now refillable
