Totally Techniques – Torn Edges

Welcome to the Totally Techniques Blog Hop! I’m Lynsay Mahon from Edmonton, Alberta Canada. Each month, our international team of crafters share projects using a specific technique. This month our technique is “torn edges.” This is a really simple thing you can do to add texture to your projects.

For my project, I was inspired by the first day of fall. It got me thinking about Halloween and the treat boxes I’d like to assemble for a few special trick-or-treaters!

The Tombstone Treat Boxes (156486, $13.50) are adorable, food safe boxes. They perfectly fit a gift card or a handful of chocolates or candies. I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut out a window on the front of the tombstone and used a window sheet so that the goodies inside can peek through.

The tag is a combo of 4 layers of the Cute Halloween 6″x6″ Designer Series Paper and Highland Heather Cardstock. I love tearing the edges of designer series paper as it’s not dyed all the way through and you can really notice the torn edge.

Something that works so well is to use your Stampin’ Blends to colour your ribbon, to have coordinating ribbon colours! This is how I got the Highland Heather Gingham Ribbon.
