Wrapped too tight? .......Who's Your Mummy?

When I saw this Pink Hippo mummy stamp set (on someone's blog site), I knew it had to be added to my collection.  The main image is so scary cute and the included words made me smile.   Bo Bunny Halloween cardstock (from Ben Franklin Crafts) was adhered to chipboard using spray adhesive and the  treat box was cut using the Sizzix die called 'bag, caddy'. The caddy was secured together with Merikan double stick tape.

Next, the mummy imaged was stamped and colored with Copic pens.  At BFC I bought the Tim Holtz dusty Concord Distress dauber which was used to smudge the background.  A frame for the image was cut using the Sizzix decorative frame die which I also purchased from BFC. The framed image was adhered to the caddy using pop-dots so that the ribbons had room to be tied onto the caddy handle.

So that the back of the treat caddy wouldn't look too bare, I stamped words and added WOW neon orange glitter (available from BFC).  I think that moms who are creative and go all out to make Halloween a fun time for their children need to be treated too, so I plan to put lip gloss, hand cream and other mother pampering goodies in this Halloween treat caddy and give it to a special mom.
Note: Niki G.(Stampn' HI) must be a literature buff because she quickly was able to tell me the poet's name (Lear) that I couldn't remember while writing my last post.  Thanks Niki, you saved me from going insane trying to remember.
