Witch in the Moonlight Treat Box




Since I rarely seem to have a need for Halloween cards, I have decided to concentrate on treat containers. Anyway, as far as I am concerned, Halloween is all about the sweets.  LOL!  The base for this first treat box was made using a Sizzix die called, bag with handles.  Perhaps the most challenging part of this project was die cutting the wrought iron fence because the Spellbinders die is so intricate it takes awhile to extricate the fine parts.
To save time and add color I stamped the Halloween silhouettes on a strip of purple card stock and added it to the other three sides of the box. The witch was simply stamped on a yellow moon and taped onto the box before adding the fence. Several ribbons were tied onto the handles and a Martha Stewart sticker (from my stash) was added to the back of the box.

The bonus for making this treat box was that in the Studio G package containing the witch stamp, there was a second set of witch stamps. If there is anyone out there in blogland who would like to have this second set of stamps please leave a comment saying, "I want it!" If you are the first one to comment indicating that you want the stamp set, I will send it (and maybe *wink-wink* some other goodies) to you.  I will need to have a way to contact you (blog site, email address) and you will need to send me your mailing address after I contact you.
Thank you for visiting this blog site and reading all the way to the end.  I hope you have learned something and enjoyed your time here. Please stop by again and leave a comment if you have the time.
