Halloween Treats

There's plenty of fantastic Bugaboo Treats to be had this week as the theme over at the challenge blog, CATCH THE BUG is
ANYTHING BUT A CARD - TRICK OR TREAT!


I wanted to make a treat holder for a grown up so went to the JJ Calendar Months collection and went for the October image.


The box is made using a Sizzix XL die. Then I went to town with some Papertrey ink products (the gingham stamp and ric rac die) for the decorations. The ink and green cardstock is Stampin' Up's Garden Green.


I think I may have overdone the pics and taken from any angle I could lol!


Finally filled it with some Hershey Nuggets. I have just had some Avery labels from the US so I can't wait to start using them to cover the nuggets so that the chocolates can match the projects.


Hope you like the box. If you feel inspired, why not join us for this weeks challenge and potentially win some prizes? Head on over to Catch The Bug for all the details. If you need to make some quick treat holders or just want to try something simple, then check out the tutorials I have in my sidebar for some ideas of ones I made last year.

I'm also entering this project into the following challenges:
Cuddly Buddly ~ Check It Out (used Gingham)    Forever Night ~ Trick or Treat
Fussy and Fancy ~ Halloween     Inspire Me Friday ~ Anything Goes
Just Add Ink ~ Die Cut (ric rac is PTI die)     Craft Lounge ~ Trick or Treat
Crafty Ribbons ~ Halloween     Limited Runs ~ Halloween
Pixie Dust ~ Anything But a Card     Stamp Insanity ~ Anything But a Card

Do you know the name of the treat box you used. I'd love to have that die. It's a perfect size.
Please put box die in subject line so that I know it's from you, if you can help.
Thanks
