13 Nights of Halloween Days 7 & 8

I tried and I tried but I didn't get to a project last night.  I was fighting with this lil' treat box and for some reason, I could not get it to work.  My head was hurting and I was really sleepy so I decided to give it a rest and save it for tonight.

It's not that complicated of a box so I'm not sure what happened.


Ding! Ding! Ding! I think I found a winner. I don't know why but I like it. There's plenty of room for treats and it wasn't that hard to make. I scored a 7x10" piece of card stock at 4" and 6" lengthwise and turned it over and scored it at 2" and 5". Then I folded it on the score lines, cut slits on each side and put it all together with some tacky tape. It sounds complicated but really it isn't. I wish you could see more of that adorable pattern paper that I used as a mat for each side, but you can't (boo!). I promise it is really cute! I topped it with a 2" strip of paper that I had punched with a border punch. I added some die cuts, a sentiment and some ribbon and called it a day.

My next project is a scrapbook layout.


Sorry about the terrible picture but I need to find a spot where I can photograph layouts.

I have been wanting to use these chipboard letters that I have (they were actually one of the first "crafty" things that I ever bought!) but the colors just weren't working out for me.  So I painted them with black acyclic paint and while they were still wet, sprinkled black glitter.  "Monster" is from Gypsy Font with the letters welded together in my Gypsy.  The spiderweb is cut from Happy Hauntings and some of those adorable glitter spiders are hanging out on it.  This layout looks pretty simple but I do love how it came out.  (I wish I had added the picture but I have no idea where I put it)

  1. I love the little treat bag! Ive yet to try and make anything like that myself. I made a card yesterday and it literally took me 8 hours!! and I dont really even like how the card turned out :( so i cant imagine how long it would take me to make something like that! You did a great job its really cute and I love the layout also.
