Halloween Treats ...


Good morning!  I realized yesterday that I hadn't completed Katie's Halloween Treats for her classmates because her teacher didn't get back to me with the number of students in her class.  I called yesterday afternoon, found out her teacher wasn't in but they were able to tell me the number of students in her class.  So it's 2:40pm, and I have 6 treat packages to make.  Here is what I created ...


I saw another crafter, brain is blank right now, who created these treat boxes and I asked where she got the directions for them.  She sent me to Splitcoast Stampers, and I found a dozen versions of this treat / nugget box.  Of course, when I went back today I only found instructions to create the one I made so go here for all the details.

The Halloween sentiment is from DeNami Design, the pumpkin is a QuicKutz Die that I stamped the face from Avocado Arts Thankful for You stamp set and added the googly eyes, and the leaves are Floral Embellishments from Recollections. The "Katie" stamp is what she used at school to stamp her paperwork during High School.  It hasn't been used for a while so it didn't stamp very well, and I had to use a Black Copic Marker to go over her name.  The "from" is hand written.

The twine was used to hold the tag with Katie's name, but it was also used to make sure the boxes stayed closed during transportation in her backpack. ;o)


I had one extra box, shown above, that I hadn't put candy in yet.  Each box that Katie is giving to her classmates has 3 miniature Kit Kats in them. 

Here's a picture of all 6 boxes ready to go.


These were so easy and fun to make, and I know that Katie will love handing these out to her classmates.

I am entering these treats into the following challenges ...
