Halloween Treat Boxes

I thought I'd post a quick and fun project I created for my children and my niece for Halloween.

Treat Boxes

I am completely enamoured with the Happy Haunting stamp set by Whipper Snapper.  The super talented Ms. Anna Wight is the illustrator for these images... and as soon as I saw the sneak peaks for the set, I knew I had to buy it.  Now... I don't send Halloween cards, but I really think I'll get a lot of use for this fun set.  If anything else, I'll find an excuse to send Halloween cards or treats to everyone I know!!!  Haha!!

Believe it or not, this was a very fast project to complete.  I used my Cricut Expression to cut the fry boxes with the Make the Cut program.  I found a fry box in the gallery and cut using my Expression.  It's really a fantastic way to use your Expression... since the cost of the cartridges can be very prohibitive.

Once the boxes were cut, I stamped (in orange ink - and not visible in my photos) the little ghost image on the boxes.  I adhered the sides with very strong tape and set aside.

I stamped my images and layered on Lacey scallop die-cuts.  Images were colored with copic markers.

The treats were a huge hit... and I had the pleasure of creating for fun!
