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 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 pumpkin patch die and the grass from the spooky fence. Cute, huh!

For my final project this week, another treat container! If I had a whole house for a storage unit, I could fill it with containers. I'm a container-holic {Nikki - no comment from you, hoarder-watcher! LOL) K, so anyway, this container, as you can see, is Queen and Co.

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.
The 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 pumpkin trio and slipped the ribbon handle through one of the slots.

You still have a few days yet till Halloween if you want to make treat bags. 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, right!? :) Happy Halloween!

The witch on your treat container is adorable! I love the paper you chose for her dress! Thanks for sharing your template trick! I like to save interesting containers too, to use for patterns. Your card is really nice too.
