I like to give special treats to those special trick or treaters in my life; whether they are in costume or not! (Yes, I mean “my boys”, my co-workers and other family). Of course, you could make a whole bunch of these to hand out to every trick or treater at your door if you really wanted to!
I used the Fry Box die and Basic Gray cardstock to make the box. The image is from the “Merry Everything” stamp set. I love the little dracula, and the little spider behind him. This set has a coordinating punch, Note Tag Punch, which made cropping out the shape a snap. Now, you know how I love the coordinating products. But I love saving money just as much too! And when these two products are bundled together, you save 15%! Bonus!
Momento Tuxedo Black ink is my new favorite black ink. It is crisp and dark, and doesn’t run when you color in it. I stamped the image with that, then I used my Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker to color in his little face. Old Olive cardstock and the Modern Label punch made a little splash of color behind the image.
I love how this fry box can be stuffed with candy. And it holds a pretty decent amount of candy. I’m also planning on making these for Thanksgiving to set at each place setting. I may fill a clear bag with either candy corn , or cookies to put in the box. This little box is so versatile; I could see it filled with nail polish & lip stick for a little girl’s birthday party. Or Legos or Matchbox cars for a little boy. What will you put in yours?
Don’t forget, I’m giving away the Tee-Hee-Hee stamp set on Halloween! All you have to do is leave me a comment. All comments received this week will be entered in to win. I’ll pick a winner on Friday!
