Skeletons and Treats

Last Friday I made a FB Live video while making this cute little treat box.  If you watched it (you can go to my YouTube Channel - Link on sidebar) I mentioned about it easily becoming a headless skeleton.  I did fix that issue before it happened but a friend watching got a real kick from me saying that.  It really tickled my funny bone, too.

Here's the finished treat box.  Since our Triangle Treat die set really needs 12" paper I grabbed this skeleton print from our Fall-O-Ween Prints but had to go to a retired stamp set for a skeleton! I probably should have (I still can....) ordered our Skeletons Dance Bundle as it would have worked perfectly for this!!!

You have to carefully pull on the skeleton's head to open the end of the box to get to the goodies.  I have added a small Foam Square to keep this little guy from becoming headless.  I think I need to add a little pull tab or ribbon to use instead.

I put a couple little bags of M & Ms in the box to show you how this opens. 

Other products used:
Card stocks:  Whip Cream & Black Licorice
Other Stamps: Happy Pumpkin Bundle
Other Dies: Pennant Fun
Ink: Black Licorice
Silk: Black Licorice
Bling: Rhinestones
Other: White Liner Tape, Craft Glue, Crease Tool, Bloom Tool, Foam Squares Med., Details Pro Shears, and Platinum machine

I have used this die set to make "cake" boxes and do have a YouTube video dated July 6 of this year.

I think I"m about done with Halloween projects.  We don't really celebrate it but do take part working at our church doing an alternative to Halloween party for children and to give them a safe place to play games, eat, and have fun.
