Trick or Treat - Tuesday 28th October 2014

Good Morning Friends,

I was up very late crafting last to admit I'm not usually at my best as a night time crafter, but Tom is away, so I knew I'd have trouble sleeping and crafting was the better option! I made some birthday cards for family and friends who have birthdays next week, so I was quite productive!

Now I am up early to share with you a couple of treat boxes I made recently - they will be for the neighbours children when they come knocking.

 This one was made using a Sizzix box die and Boo die...then for the handle I used a Spellbinders border die. I have had that die a long time, I think it was the first border die that I bought. Simples.

 For this box I cut the two largest pumpkin dies from a Spellbinders set and then ran them through my GC with an embossing folder. I made a base and sides for the box, using part of the box die from above and adapting it and then joined the two together to make a box.

I die cut some leaves and adhered them to the box, adding some glossy accents for dew drops. To finish I added some ribbon, twine and a button.

Thank you so much for stopping by...I did say I would be posting workshop photos, but I still have some autumnal/Halloween projects to show before the 31st, so they will have to wait until the weekend!

Love and Hugs,
Carole X
