Domino Art Halloween Treat Box

Hi Dreamers!
A little something different for you today!  My buddy, Leigh, encouraged me to take part in the 31 Days of Halloween on her Domino Art blog.  I am actually day 24 and my project will appear on the Domino Art blog on Wednesday.  Be sure to click over and see all the amazing projects made with dominoes.  This is my  first attempt at stamping on a domino.  And, of course, I got carried away stamping and ended up with about  ten decorated dominoes.  Here  is what I decided to make with the dominoes.

Materials List:

  1. Fall Scene - Memory Box
  2. Bat, Pumpkin, Sentiment, Tree - Stampin’ Up
  3. Candy Corn, Frankenstein - Studio G
  4. Clothes Line - Recollections
Ink: Jet Black Stazon
Decorative Paper: K & Company
Ribbon: Michael's Craft Store
Glossy Accents
Copic Markers
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Small box: 4 ¼ x 5 inches

  • Stamp on dominoes with Stazon ink.  Let dry.  
  • Color with markers.  
  • Add a layer of  Glossy Accents when marker ink is dry.  
  • Cover box with decorative paper and ribbon.  
  • Glue dominoes to box top with hot glue gun.  
  • Tie two bows and attach with hot glue.
  • Fill with treats.
