Aud Sentiments - Halloweeeeeeen!

I love making little boxes - just dont know why I dont do them more often - I find them so satisfying!

So this is my little halloween set....the template for the coffin came from Martha Stewart - it was just on her website!  I made one last year for a treat box for Joshy - its been used as a money store all year so I thought I needed to make a new one this year.

We were so lucky to have The Cutting Cafe as our sponsor over at Aud Sentiments this time. They have such a variety of products over there all of which are so fun to work with! We were lucky enough to use the treat boxes and they are so easy to make and so adorable! They are giving the winner of this challenge 3 sets of their choice! WOW! 

I used pipe cleaners for his legs - and I suspect the sentiment thingy was from Cuddly Buddly - although please dont hold me to it!

I had such a time trying to work this out though....the idea is that there are two boxes and the child gets to pick which one they think the treat is in and which one will have the trick...I made a little cardboard spring so that the spider jumps up at them - had to prop it on the edge of the box to get this picture.

And because the lids and boxes are the same size, I can swap the lids around each time - so the treat really could be in either box!

So - down to the challenge - ha ha, all this way and I only just get round to it!

Your challenge is to "Use Any Halloween Sentiment" and the bonus challenge is to make a treat holder.

I really cant wait to see what everyone makes - I just love seeing boxes and packaging!  Oooo and you just gotta go over and check out the other DT member's stuff - amazing!  SO, why are you still here?  Oh, the link to Aud it is!

Still here?  Just as well you are....keep a lookout tomorrow - I have a lickle bit of news!  Shhhhhhhhhh....its a secret!!!
