Halloween Treats

Happy Halloween!

While I'm not super nutty about this holiday, I do love any reason to celebrate and make fun things. For work I made these cute little treat boxes. I learned it at Stamp Club last week with and you can see the instructions here:

At Stamp Club we made a Christmas one, so I adapted it and made my Halloween ones. I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out. First I cut and scored my paper. Then I ran it through the Cuttlebug and tied it off with orange ribbon.

Next I stamped this small spider image and mounted it on a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock (how appropriate!) I even put a bit of Crystal Effects on the spider part, for added cuteness.
Scored and folded it to make it a mini card on the outside of the box.

Then I stamped the outside with "Eek! You're Sweet"

It was fun making them (I made 16 in all). It's been awhile since I've made something that wasn't mostly pre-designed so I'm happy with the final product.

For this box I used:

Card stock - Black, Pumpkin Pie and White
Stamps - Random Spider (I'm guessing just a Hobby Lobby one, I got it as a bonus with an eBay auction I won) and Sweet Centers (SU!)
