I love Halloween,

When I was a kid I use to spend the few weeks before Halloween looking for the perfect costume. I would put sometime a special request to my mom so she could help me by sewing my ideas together.

To get into the spirit of Halloween, I did this special treat box for the before and after school boys I am looking after.  I got this inspiration from a fellow consultant Sharon aka the Oki Stamp Queen.

Here is my project:  A "Scary treat box".  I had a lot of fun doing it as it was really easy with the Close to My Heart Artist and Artbooking Cricut cartridges.

If you want I can send you a kit for $6 + shipping or you can pick up if you live in Calgary.
The kit will have all pre-cut pieces and instruction (adhesive not include)

Here is what you need to complete this project

Here are the pieces that need to be cut with Cricut

  •  Page  76 - cut casket at 6" leave off the real dial size to make the lid and base of casket fit together perfectly. 
  •  Page 76 - cut  casket base at 5 3/4" to raise the skeleton and to  make the hidden candy box. It will fit nicely inside.

Clearly the Best: A Burst of Creativity (S02E01)

Hello Papre Crafter,  I love these techniques to make beautiful cards using your scrap of paper.
If you are like me you probably have tones of those little pieces.
