 I’m super excited about the little treat boxes I have to share with you today! Here they are:
I cut holes in the top of my favor boxes to hold the test tubes filled with candy corn. Then I cut patterned papers from the Halloween Project Pantry to fit around the lid of the box and added some black lace crochet trim around the top. I cut the witch boots from black cardstock and layered the patterned paper behind the socks. Then in a tiny corner of my cluttered desk I saw the spooky googley eyes that I picked up at Michaels and decided they’d be the perfect addition to the tops of the test tubes. 
Now I just need to figure out who I’m going to give these to! Here are the supplies I used on my treat boxes:
Thanks so much for stopping by today! The AH-MAZING Baker’s Dozen gals have their own inspiration to share today so hop along for more goodies! And don’t forget to check out our free stamp set and coordinating die with any purchase of $50 or more on or before September 15th. It’s a cutie… From Me To You!
