Spooked Treat Box
I love making Halloween treats! Halloween is just plain fun! This is a little Halloween treat box filled with suckers. I made the box with Chatterbox paper and my Cricut Machine. I need to use that machine more. How easy!! I used the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Cartridge set on number 5. It doesn't score for you, but it does leave a little line where you are suppose to score. If you have a Scor-Pal, it's super easy and you end up with a really professional looking box. I'm thrilled with how this turned out. That Chatterbox paper is really sturdy... reminds me of wallpaper, it's nice and strong... and double sided so the inside looks as nice as the outside.
The suckers are covered in the same paper. I used my new Circle Scallop Punch from Stampin' Up!, and both the 1 1/4 and 1 3/8 circle punches. Very easy. The handle is basic black card stock attached with purple Ice Circle Rhinestones.... also from Stampin'Up!.
Stamp set is from Lizzie Anne Designs called Spooked. I LOVE it. Solid Halloween stamps are my favorite because I always need mass quantities of goodies, so quick and easy suits me perfect. Love that cute little spider. :)
I used my Sakura Gelly Roll pens to add some sparkle and dimension to the bat and the ghost. LOVE those pens!!! And, finally some grosgrain ribbon to the handle. Trick or Treat baby!!!
Okay... so fellow design team member Lindsey Botkin (Jacksonbelle on SCS) is having a fun contest over at her blog Embellished. If you have some Lizzie Anne Design stamps, you better go and and check it out. If you don't have any Lizzie Anne Design stamps.. what are you waiting for? You will not be disappointed in these stamps girls.. I totally adore them!!! I just ordered another set and I can't wait to get it out and play. Go, check out the contest..... she is giving away awesome prizes!!!
I hope to find some time to stamp today, but summer is just keeping me crazy busy. I wanted to do some more challenges over at SCS .... I had such a fun weekend hanging out over there in the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges Gallery. WOW... talk about inspiration.
Hope you all had a great weekend... thanks for visiting!!
