Halloween gifts

Happy Sunday to you! I have been working on a couple of projects for my grandchildren's Halloween treats and for some friends.

First up is a "cafe box" cut on my Cricut using SCAL. The SVG file came from Melinda Ford, she has some awesome files...and they are free!!!! Did I say Free! Yes Free!!!!

I cut this box out on some Halloween cardstock and added the skull sticker from BOBunny's Halloween line this year. I have made 4 of these boxes, 1 for each grandchild, so I decided I better put their names on their box, so they don't fight over them, or forget which one is theirs...

I still haven't decided what to put in each box..but I will be making a trip to Walgreens, and I'm sure I can find something to fill it up with!

The next project is one that I have made many times for different holidays. When I went to Michaels a few days ago, I found some Halloween cocoa mixes..they were sooo cute, I new I had to do something with them.

So, I made up this Cocoa box from a template I got from Debbie Olsen blog a while ago...I'm sure she still has it somewhere on her site.

I used SU Pumpkin Pie cardstock as the base for the cocoa holder. Then I added some Halloween paper I picked up at Michaels, I also used my MS gooey punch on the front...The witch is from PTI's spooky sweets stamp set as well as the Sentiment on the front.

One the inside...

I used my Nesties to cut out the window for the super cute little witch on the cocoa packet to show thru, I added some transparency to the window front, and again the sentiments are all from PTI's Spooky Sweets set.

This is what the cocoa box looks like before the cocoa mix is added...isn't that a cute cocoa mix?

I think I will be giving this one to my mail lady! She is so sweet and just loves to stamp!

Well, I'm off to finish up a couple of other Halloween projects so I can get started on my Christmas ones!

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day.
