The boys took treat boxes this morning to hand out to friends at school today. Since this is our 1st year in our new school, I'm not sure how well it will go over. Only one note was sent home from a teacher mentioning a class party, but there was no mention of the teacher needing help. This is a new experience for me. We spent four years in a school were parents were encouraged to be in the class room all the time, especially on holidays having big class parties. But true to my desire to do something special for them and their classmates whenever I can, I decided to send some Tombstone boxes. I made 55 boxes and have parts lying around that could be used to make a few more.
The tombstone box is part of the Gimme Candy Boxes Kit from SVG Cuts. I used AC cardstock, BasicGrey DP, and Me and My Big Ideas Halloween Mambi Sheets to complete my project as well as a few miscellaneous papers from my stash. Again I used Memento Ink to ink my edges. On the teacher's version I added pearls. On the inside I stuffed Kraft Paper Crinkle (from Michaels) around Kit Kats and Rolos candies. The teacher's version was made at about 90% the original file size and the boxes for the kids were downsized to 60%.
I will submit this to the following challenges:
