Spooky Treat Box!

Hi there! Happy Saturday! I just returned from Megan's cross country meet and Anna's soccer game -- finally I get a chance to post this project! I had so much fun making this halloween coaster box -- mostly because I got to use these images from the new C.C. Designs set Spooky Spooky Spooky!! Isn't this the cutest little vampire ever? :)

To make the box, I covered both sides of chipboard coasters in different patterns of halloween paper, then I applied Mod Podge to all of them. I set Jumbo eyelets and tied ribbons through them to attach the sides together.

I stamped the bear and sentiment, and I colored with Copics. I used Marvy punches for the image circle and mat. I sponged the white circle with SU! Ballet Blue ink, and I added dots to the scallops with a white gel pen.

For the tag, I used two images: the eyes and the Booooooooo circle. Christine designed the eyes to fit inside the circle perfectly, or you can use the images separately. I did the same sponging and white dots on the tag, and I adhered googly eyes over the eyes on the stamped image.

I filled a cellophane bag with candy and placed it inside the box. I thought it also would be a cute centerpiece holding a small vase full of flowers! There are lots of gift possibilities for teachers, friends, or that "boo" treat for neighbors!

The other images in the set are adorable, too -- a spider, bat, and a scared Lucky! Check out the ATS Blog for more samples and a chance to win this set (and all the new releases!). Don't forget -- the release will be Tuesday, September 9 at All That Scraps! Tomorrow I will have another preview in addition to the Sunday Supper recipe, so I hope you'll stop by! Thank you so much for visiting today -- have a great day! :)

Christina, this is adorable! I love that little bear and the colors you used are great! So often orange and purple are paired for Halloween, so I really love the blue you used here instead! Cute, cute project!
