You've Been Boo'd!

It's time for another 

The theme is Halloween Treats!!! This one will be fun as we are all getting those last minute treats ready for school parties and such!

I have always liked the idea of secretly leaving a treat on the neighbor's door, ringing the bell, and running off. I haven't done it, but this year I have at least made the boxes. Maybe I'll let the kids give it a try as we have several widows as neighbors.

So here they are:

Can I say, "EASY to put together!!! The box itself is two pieces of paper - the top part of the box and the bottom part. Glue some tabs on both pieces and slide the top over the bottom. Done!!! Nothing better than a quick treat box!!! The box is from SVG Attic's Halloween Character Boxes. The paper for the ghosty top is from Doodlebug Design. It is the Kraft in Color White Woodgrain. It is one of my favorite papers. Anyway I had started these late one night earlier this week. I made the first box with a plain white top and it took me two seconds to say, "No, that's just not going to work! I need a patterned paper!" My next thought was that my local craft store a block down the street carries the Kraft in Color collection year round. So the next morning I was off to pick some up. I'm so glad I did. I really like how they turned out. The sentiment is from Scrappy Mom's Stamps' Bewitched set. It was stamped onto a Labels Ten die from Spellbinders. 

Here is a close up of one of them. 

So glad you came by today!!! Hope to see you again soon!
