No-Halloween-candy caddy boxes

Every year I can't resist sending my too-old-for-Halloween sons some candy. They always say,"Stop it MOM!". This year I'm mailing them Halloween caddies with Post-It note pads and mini-pens. Hmm-mm-mm the Martha Stewart treat bags would be perfect to send some non-candy treats like tea or li hing mui... hee-hee LOL! The caddies were constructed from a Sizzix die-cut chipboard upon which I glued Halloween paper before cutting. By swapping the two parts, two different looking caddies were made. The plastic skeleton keys are Jolee's stickers and the labels used die cuts from a huge K and Co. package. You can find lots of Halloween embellishments at Ben Franklin Crafts but you need to hurry 'cuz Halloween is just a couple of weeks away. Shh-hh! don't tell my boys that their silly old mom is going to send them Halloween stuff again......but it's not candy!

I think my son will be like that too when he gets older. It seem like he's growing up too fast. But they are never too old for Halloween eventually they will eat the treats you send to them. Love your caddy it's cute. Have a wonderful Halloween.
