Just Because.....it's Halloween ;)


Hi there!  Today I'm sharing a quick and simple triangle treat box I created for my kids to give out to their teachers on Halloween.  I am also linking it to a couple of challenges: (1) Cricut Circle Blog Weekly Challenge [Feeling Gifty] and (2) the Bitten By The Bug2 [Happy Haunting Witch Challenge].  The base of the triangle box was cut from the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More (TBBM) cart at 5 inches so I can cut two of them using a double sided 12 x 12 cardstock.  The witch image is of course from the Happy Hauntings cart.

Before I assembled the box I inserted a piece of vellum paper to cover the negative cut of the witch image as you can see below.



For the tag I used the bat tag image from the Wrap It Up cart, both layers cut at 3 inches.  The blackout layer is cut in black because I am going to have my kids write their teachers' names in white gel pen.  I embellished the tag with some black raffia and a home dyed crinkle ribbon.  Then I attached the tag to the box using a ring spider as you can see below.





And there you have it!  All supplies except for the candies inside and the spider rings were from my stash.  Project #15 for Using My Stash pledge at the CC MB.  Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!  I do appreciate you stopping by ;)

Great treat box, Melody! I really like the negative cut witch and the vellum. In the photo she almost looks like she is printed onto the cartstock. Love the ghoulish embellies!! Thanks for joining us at BBTB2 this week.
