Treat Boxes and Bags ... for your little Gobblins

This week we are heating things up with ... Treat boxes and bag ideas for all those little gobblins that will be coming to your door in a few short weeks .
Some of the ideas this week I could not see going to the little goblins but to the adults neighbors co-workers and friends.

Well I LOVE Gourmet candy apples .... and making them is always a blast ... a sticky blast .
This one is healthy .... you have your apple and some caramel and then make a mixture of toasted coconut , chocolate chips and pecans .... YUMMO ! can you taste it ... cause its soooo good.
I hate it when I am eating candy apples and the sprinkles or whatever they are coated in and leaving crumbs on my shirt and sticking on everything ... so the box lid doubles as a catch all for the crumbs .

For the box ... Take 1 12 X12 sheet of paper (heavy cardstock works best) I love my Scor-pal there is nothing like it (don't even say Martha to me ... ) On the board I scored at 4 and 8 inches . Cut up the score lines to make tabs so that you can create a box . (Glue together its important to remember that you need to use a liquid adhesive when making boxes so that they are strong enough that the box will hold something ScrapHappy Glue works great for this because it dries super quick.

For the lid that fits down into the box you need a 6X6 piece of paper  score one inch all the way around and then create the box just like you did the bottom .

For the Embellishment for the box I used my Spellbinders dies ... I searched high and low in my craftroom and I could not find my pumpkin dies ... and well I was feeling in a pinch ... so I took labels 14 and turned them into a pumpkin . Just call me the fairy godmother I can take something and turn it in to Pumpkins.

I stamped Roaring 20's placard on the die cuts and then started inking ... with our Lil' Inkerz  using of course my Tim Holtz ink
Spiced Marmalade and Vintage photo ... The leaves were die cut from .......and stamped with the stamp . Then inked with Crushed Olive and Forest Moss ... they make a great combo together .
