Halloween Treat Box

This is my halloween treat box - I found the template on the Martha Stewart website (linked to it from various other blogs, you know how it is!). Was playing around with it and decided to put hairy spiders legs on it (not sure why! LOL). And the image was from Robin's artful Musings Blog - it was a freebie and printed beautifully (thanks!). Decorated it with a couple of webs and the Boo! That was it - took a bit of thinking (think as I do!!) but could prob knock one out in about 20 mins now! Hubby wants to take it to work with him, Josh wants it filled with sweets (and just a swiftly emptied no doubt!) - I might take it to work with me! Actually, it will probably go to school with jelly beans in! The first picture is it creeping across the floor to my mum - she was horrified that I took a pic of her tatty slippers, she has to cut the sides to get her feet in! Have assured her that in the crafting world there is probably much worse than tatty slippers!

Am entering this into Saturdya Spotlight Hidden Potential Challenge - treat container.
Have also rather cheekily entered it into the Furry Friend Challenge on the Allsorts Challenge Blog! Well it is quite friendly and definitely furry!
And Cute Card Thursday Challenge - its for Candy Corns (we dont have them in UK!) but I looked at some of the projects and it looks like its all to do with sweeties! Sorry if I have got it wrong folks!
And finally, Kaboodle Blog's Spooky Challenge!
