Papertrey Ink Halloween tree

Hello everyone and a warm welcome to Patricia and Lianne who are new followers this week. There are spooky goings on over at Papertrey Ink this week, and although it seems a little early to be thinking of Halloween, I thought I'd join in. We are asked to create a Halloween project but as we don't send Halloween cards in England, I thought I'd make up some trick or treat boxes. We get increasing numbers of children calling each year as Halloween gets more popular around here and the little ones look really cute in their scary costumes, so it will be good to be prepared.

I used the Favor it Box 5 die to make black boxes out of textured card and cut labels with the Happy Day die and scalloped and plain circles


I used a little flourish stamp from Happy Days and a set of Halloween stamps that were a kind gift from Margaret last year and mixed them up to produce a set of labels,


which I then attached to the treat boxes along with some ribbon.


 I then hung the boxes onto a tree that I last used for hanging Easter eggs, and dressed it up as a ghostly tree for Halloween


Do go and have a look at all the great projects on Nichole's blog if you have time. Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs
