Happy Halloween! Wait...What Month Is It?

If you know me, you know that I loooove Halloween.  For me it's never too early to start getting ready.  My friends and I are already planning our costumes. =D  Every Halloween and Christmas I like to make little treats for my coworkers.  (There's only 6 of them in my department, so it doesn't take too long. LOL)  I decided to get a head start this year, and now I'm finished with the Halloween ones!  They're just waiting to be filled with candy.  (Mmmm...Halloween candy is the BEST!)


I used a Sizzix box die and my Big Shot (looove it, thanks ma!).  It took a few tries before I figured out the correct way to fold and glue them shut.  I also had a little bit of a paper issue (didn't realize I had to cut one part twice, and I ran out of one of my papers) but figured out a way to make it work, as Tim Gunn would say.  =D  All of the images are from Simply Betty Stamps and were colored with Copics and Glaze pens, then cut out with my craft knife.  I added embellishments from the Basic Grey Eerie collection and gems from Archiver's.  Then I lined all of the fronts with Stickles.

Here's a close up of all six.




Thanks for stopping by to take a look! We'll be seeing you soon.  =D
