A Halloween Candy House
My turn today for a blog post at Scrapbook and Cards Today's blog. I was at Creative Bag in Mississauga and came upon this triple wine gift box and thought this would be a perfect to make a Halloween candy house. The three windows in the front are hinged and are the perfect size for little hands to reach into for a candy treat. I made a hinged roof at the top with paper strips trimmed into banners which flips up to refill the box or for 'big kid' hands to grab a treat too! These boxes also come in red and gold, hmm ideas spinning in my head about a cute little Christmas scene, what do you think?
K, back to the Halloween house, the pattern papers I used are from the Recollections stack from Michaels and the diecuts are K&Co.- love the ghosts, monsters, and mummies. This Halloween house is sitting on a table in our foyer and the candy supply is definitely dwindling down..(not my waistline though, ha!)
With a ton of paper supplies leftover I thought it would be fun to make a few cards to celebrate October birthdays with a little Halloween twist.
Have an occasion you might want to use these cards? Be the first person to let me know (via email) and I'll plop them into the mail to you. Have a great day!
