Halloween Blog Hop ~ Day 1

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!

Your next stop on the hop is Martha's Blog but before you hop away, become a follower and leave me a comment and you will be entered to win my Blog Candy - a Treat Bag with some Spooky Scrapbooking Treats! Check back tomorrow for another great project!

How thoughtful of you to be towards your daughters obsessions! She is going to be tickled pink that you thought of this for her and probably show it off to all of her friends at what a crafty mom she has! Great job. Love the added lace for the feminine side. tfs Tami

I saw that very pretty, yet ghoulish, coffin today when I was watching the girls, and was wondering why you made it, well, other than your fascination with all things Halloween.
