Halloween Treat Container



I am back with a little more Halloween Goodness! Honestly I think I could make Halloween things all year long and never get bored with them. The challenge over on the Simply Betty Challenge Blog was to make some type of treat container. This challenge was perfect timing for me since I needed to get some samples made up. Every year I make Jenna and Samantha a several different types of treat containers and let them pick which one they want to take to school and give their friends. I am so glad their Mom isn't crafty and she lets me do this! For this challenge I decided to make an acetate box filled with some mini candy bars. I used Skeleton Peter from Simply Betty Stamps and colored him with Copics. I had to take the photo from the side angle because of the glare off of the acetate. The ribbon is from my stash and the paper is DCWV I think.

Here is a close up of the image. I really love this little guy, I think he is adorable. I decided to give him some blue tips to his hair as a nod to my younger blue haired self!


Thanks for dropping by today!

ETA: Someone emailed me and asked me if this was a pre-made box or one that I made and if I made it the dimensions. I did make it using an acetate sheet and some card stock. the dimensions for the acetate sheet is 8 1/4" x 6". If you want, let me know in the comments and I will do a full tutorial.

And these were a big hit with Samantha but she raided the Almond Joys after dinner last night!

Great treat box! I haven't really worked with acetate! I guess I should get some at Staples next time I'm there.

A tutorial would be fun if you want to do one :)
