A Cauldron of Bats: Design a Treat Box Dies


I am a word nerd. (Yes, I WORDLE.) So when I discovered the collective noun for bats is CAULDRON, I had to tell everyone I knew. Well, I started out by telling my family in our group chat, and now I’m telling all of you, so I think that’s everyone!

  • Stamps: Design a Treat
  • Color Palette: Black and White
  • Accessories: Big Boss, Design a Treat dies, Perfectly Penciled DSP (and a few sheets of retired B&W), Amber Gems, Tear n Tape (TnT)

Those Amber Gems from the Rustic Harvest Suite give the perfect spooky stare, don’t they? And that cute little tag is not only part of the Design a Treat dies, but there are THREE of them!! And since our Basic White card stock is a little lighter weight than standard card stock, you can cut two at once – which means I was cutting 6 in one crank of the Big Boss!!!

It just so happens that two Hershey Nuggets fit perfectly inside these little boxes. They’re sturdiest when assembled with a little bit of Tear n Tape on the flaps. I experimented with card stock and with dies for the boxes, and while card stock closes more securely across the top, the DSP is much cuter. I cut the batty tops from card stock, and they sit quite firmly across the top, keeping it closed. The advantage of using that batty top is that there’s no adhesive, so the box doesn’t have to be ripped open to enjoy the contents.

I really did make a Cauldron’s worth – this isn’t even half! They’re a single Big Boss cut to produce (run the batty bit at the same time) and they assemble easily. They’re a perfect table favor, office treat, or Halloween decoration. Find them HERE and you’ll have your own Cauldron in a FLASH 💥 (Don’t forget the TnT)
