CottageCutz Halloween Matchboxes & Giveaway

Welcome papercrafts and friends to another CottageCutz creation for Halloween. It's Carol here today.  You know you have those special "Trick-or-Treaters" that you just want to just do a little something extra for.  These are so stinking cute.  They are matchboxes created with the beautiful CottageCutz dies.  These little boxes will put a smile on the recipients face.  How about the teller at the bank, the cashier at the grocery store, a child's special teacher, or your co-workers.  These will add some fun to you Halloween festivities!
 You can find directions of making your matchbox tutorials on youtube or perhaps you own a matchbox die.  This matchbox was created with black cardstock and cover with Halloween cardstock on the outside only leaving a 1/4" edge,  The orange burlap is from the "Dollar Tree".  The spider is a Recollection embellishment.  Use any square die that fits you diecut image and top of box.  The Cottage cutz die here is the Witch on Broom.  The rose was created on orange cardstock with a 5 petal medium Marvey punch that are destressed with black soot ink and the leaves are the frond punch mounted on a seam binding bow.
This box uses the same basic design but with the CottageCutz Pumpkin and Bat die,  I backed the pumpkin with black cardstock because I liked the way it looked and it made it show up well.
The third and last matchbox uses the same basic design with the CottageCutz Cat w/Pumpkins.  The die was cut on Orange Designer Paper and again on Black Cardstock.  Cut the just the cat from the black cardstock and mount it on top of the cat cut from the Orange Designer paper.  The pumpkins were backed with golden yellow cardstock to match the polkadots in the Designer paper.  The "Boo" embellishment is Recollection.
Thank you so much for stopping by today to view these sweet Matchboxes.   Be sure to make something cute for those special people in your life.  It just makes a memorable moment.  Until next time......Happy Crafting.  Here are the dies used:

Carol, your punched roses are the prettiest I've ever seen. That needs a tutorial!!!! The flowers really set off the die cuts. I like the grinning pumpkin with the bat the best. I like the idea of matchboxes to give out as well. We usually do up our house pretty good for trick or treat, but our oldest is away at college this year, so I"m doubting this will happen, since he has always run the show. A little extra something in terms of treats might work as a substitute.
Beautiful projects!

What fun little boxes to give as special treats. Not only does the recipient get sweets, they get a fun decorator item.

Very clever ideas for some special Halloween treats. In my household, the receivers would have to be really special people in order for me to go to all that work. These are truly special.

So cute,what a wonderful treat. Who would have thought, witches, kitties, flowers, and spiders would have gone so well together.
