Happy Halloween!

Did I scare ya?! LOL! Probably not but I was never good at tricking - I'm more of a treater than a trickster!

Talking of treats, my nieces and nephews should be in receipt of these treats today that I rustled up over the last week:Now I'm no Lauren Meader but I have to say I'm secretly proud that I managed to design this template myself so it held just the right amount of treats in! It's like a small popcorn box. Once I'd designed it on the PC, it was simply a matter of print onto PTI card, decorate and stick together! One thing I'd recommend is that you print the template onto the bitty dot basics paper too rather than trying to be frugal and use scraps - it took bloomin' ages to measure, cut and find scraps big enough!

Now there's no PTI stamps on these sweet treats, but all the basic supplies are PTI so I thought I'd share them with ya:

Orange Zest, Plum Pudding and True Black for the ghoularific gals:White, True Black and Orange Zest for the gruesome guys:
And a little scare and treat on the inside of each one:
Box Recipe
Cardstock: Orange Zest, Stampers Select White, True Black, Bitty Dot Basics in True Black & Plum Pudding
Cuttlebug, Cuttlebug Halloween Die, Nestabilities, Orange Zest Polka Dot Ribbon, Orange Zest Button, White Button Twine, Velcro Dots, Promarkers, White Gel Pen, Chocolate Treats!

That's all for today! If you want the template to play with at all just get in touch either via comment or email - I'd be more than happy to share the creativity!

Oooh and remember there's still time to enter our Current Challenge - Goin' Dotty...!

Hope y'all have a Spooktacular Halloween!

Hi Aimes. Those boxes are so cute, I love the design and the decoration - I bet your nieces and nephews loved them! If you don't mind sharing the template I'd be happy to receive it - I have little ideas in my head already (when I'll actually get time to create is another story!) Gem x

I would love this template, just what I am looking for as I need something for 40 of my husband's co-workers Christmas gifts.
