This week over at BBTB2 the fabulous Jeri chose our challenge for us, Jeri asked us to create 3D Halloween treat containers using our cricuts and any cartridge.
Well with Halloween looming I took the opportunity to make a few as I have plenty of children calling on Haloween so thank you Jeri for a great challenge this week!
I made the little square boxes by hand using a milk carton principle but scored and folded to make a square box front rather than a rectangle. To decorate I broke out my Punpkin Carvings cartridge which I've had for at least two years and never used yet! I cut out lots of the punpkin face squares and Boo's in black cardstock, I love them! I'll definitely be using this cart in the future. To finish I punched 2 holes at the top of each container and threaded some stamping up stripey ribbon through and tied little spider rings into the ribbon so that the children can pop them on when they open their box of treats!
We hope you'll join in with us at BBTB2 and get your Halloween treat containers made ready for when the children come calling we love seeing your creations and don't forget to pop over to BBTB2 and see the awesome treat containers the rest of thr DT have made
Thanks so much for visiting and Happy Halloween everyone!
