Welcome to Day 1 of the Halloween Blog Hop! If you just happened upon my blog today you can start at Angela's Blog to hop from the beginning. If you came here from Becky's Blog you are in the right place!
There are a number of reasons that I love Halloween, the first is that it shares the same month as my birthday! I also love dressing up and now dressing up my kids too. It also happens to be in the fall which here near Chicago, IL is just GORGEOUS this time of year.
For today's project I decided to create a fun little treat box for my 5 1/2 year old daughter. Her latest obsession is Monster High and for Halloween she is going to dress as her favorite character, Draculaura.
The coffin treat box was really simple to make with my Happy Hauntings Cricut Cartridge and some plain black cardstock. Draculaura loves pink and black and girly things so I added so hot pink glitter ribbon to the edge of the box lid with my Scor Tape. Then I added the lace ruffle to the inside of the lid with more Scor Tape. Then I cut my "D" from the Elegant Cake Cricut Cartridge from White Glitter Paper and tied a bow with the same pink ribbon. I will fill it up with some Gummy Body Parts and slip it into her Trick or Treat bag on Halloween! I'm sure she will scream.... with delight!
