Happy Halloween!

I hope you're staying warm where you are. With fall officially here, the temps have dropped considerably here in the high desert of Eastern Washington and I'm even wearing slippers in the house! GASP! It may not sound like a big deal, but I'm a year-round barefoot kinda gal and my feet have been freezing the past few days on these hardwood floors! But I digress... the reason for my fall lead-in is this card :)

I've used the Cottage Cutz pumpkin trio, minus their face stamps, for this glittery fall card. For the pretty corner flourishes, I used the vine stamp that comes with the trio die.

I added vines and leaves from the Cottage Cutz pumpkin patch die and the grass from the Cottage Cutz spooky fence. Cute, huh!

And another treat container! If I had a whole house for a storage unit, I could fill it with containers! I love containers!! This one, as you can see, is Queen and Co. I don't remember what came inside, I've had it for a few years.

I took it apart to make a template...
...and traced it onto my double-sided paper
On the inside, I made my score lines and marked where my tabs and slots would be.
Fold, adhere and punch holes in the sides for my ribbon handle, and now I'm ready to embellish.
Cottage Cutz adorable little witch on her broom makes a super cute little treat sweetie, doesn't she!
Add stickles - cuz everyone loves bling, even witches, don't you know....

...and a tag for giving. Here I used one of the pumpkins from the Cottage Cutz pumpkin trio and slipped the ribbon handle through one of the slots.

You still have a few days yet till Halloween if you still want to make treat bags or favors for a party. You can use most any container as a template to make your own, or just grab a lunch bag and start embellishing! Pretty much anything will long as it's got candy in it, that's the important thing, right!? :) Happy Halloween!
